 Lifestyle Newborn and Family Photography | Washington DC • Northern Virginia


We were really excited to have Tara [capture] our family after the arrival of our second child. We first met Tara when she took our holiday photos at a mini shoot and we loved her images, especially how she had captured the spirit of our little boy. The images she got of our family we will treasure forever, once again she has captured a special time with her natural and fun photography - something that is only possible thanks to her calm personality and friendly approach.

Tara is the perfect mix of professional and relaxed. She works quickly without rushing, which is perfect for families with children. She also takes complete control of each shoot, so there's no milling around arguing about who should stand where. She brought out the best in all of us. We had a great time, totally stress-free (even in the heart of Georgetown during the holidays), and the pictures turned out beautifully.
