Hello there! Welcome to my blog. My name is Tara, I'm a Moncton, NB lifestyle and documentary photographer. I live in the country outside of Moncton with my husband and kids and german shepherd "George"! (he doesn't talk as much as the little kids, he's house trained which is more than I can say for the baby and hes much less moodier than the teenagers!)
So, are you fishing around the web for a photographer in the Moncton area and somehow ended up on my website? Well if that is the case, then I also bet that you are getting overwhelmed by the crazy amount of amateur photographers out there claiming to be in business....I've been there! It's hard...it sucks!. I don't want to spend my family's money on someone who gets decent results some of the time.... We deserve better than that and so do you! I'm ridiculously busy...someday's, in the evenings, I have to do a head count to make sure I didn't forget to pick a kid up from somewhere! I can't be alone here, right? Do you run on caffeine too?! Who has time for searching online?
Well, I am so glad that we found each other! Really! I'm not just saying that!
I'm not really big on wasting time, so lets cut to the chase! If you are looking for lifestyle and documentary style images for your family, then I bet we are a match made in heaven! That's what I do! I create those types of images for my clients all of the time. It's actually one of my favorite things to do! I do get the warm and fuzzy's over a nice family photo, so we'll make sure we cover that first but then, it's all about the "moments"...I know that sounds cheesy or cliche but I am not really sure how else to explain it! I am sure though, that once you click on my portfolio in my website, that you'll know what I am talking about.
It's really all about the little things for me. You know, the things that I'll be boo hoo-ing and bawling over someday soon when I realize that my babies have outgrown that stage. This growing up stuff sucks! On one hand, I am so glad that they are getting more independent and I don't have to lug around 46lbs of stuff when we leave the house "just in case" I needed something! But then, on the other hand, it's sad....so so sad! It's actually kind of an achy feel. If you're a crazy busy mom with so much on your plate, your head spins then you know what I am talking about...like telling the toddler to stop holding onto your leg while you are trying to cook supper and clean the pile of dishes on the counter then all of a sudden you wake up one morning to the sound of dishes clanging in the kitchen and realize that that toddler is now up and pouring his own cereal and putting his own cartoons on in the morning. One more thing he doesn't "need" you for anymore.
Do you see where I am coming from here? What I will do for you is so much more than getting everyone to dress in their matching plaid shirts :) and cheesing it up! We're going to document those "moments" that I was talking about!
So, here's just a quick run down of what I do...
Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer
I specialize in lifestyle neswborn photography and documentary family photography. In a nut shell, lifestyle photography is all about the real moments as opposed to posed photos. While I have an appreciation for posed newborn photos (they are HARD to do) I love natural, organic moments between parents, siblings and their brand new baby. Images that tell a story of what lives are at this moment are what makes me happy. Every session is unique because every family and baby is unique. I equally have a love for documentary style family photos. I love the raw, gritty everyday moments that we might not take the time to appreciate until the phase has passed and we are left with only our memories. How many times have you said to yourself "oh, remember when baby use to do that?! When did she stop doing that? I don't want to forget that about her childhood." Well, maybe it's just my poor memory (kids will do that to you) but I say this all of the time. I even want to write down some little details so I do not forget as the years go by...but I never do and I will forget. So, I take pictures to bring me back to the childhood details that I am going to miss so much. The everyday, mundane, real life, crazy and chaotic moments that make our relationships and connections jump out of the frame and scream "this is our life". These are the documentary family photos that I make for my family and I can also make for yours.
So, now that you have read through my ramblings :) Yup, I ramble, I know!...What are those "moments" for you? What are the sweet little things that melt your heart? What are the annoying day to day things that get on your last nerve (those are important too....think 47 years from now!)
Tell me your ideas for your custom family or lifestyle newborn session.
