Baby's 1st Birthday! ~ Moncton Family Photographer

Baby Beckett turns 1!  I met this family at Highland Park in Salisbury, NB for some quick 1st Birthday shots of the little man and we also managed to squeeze in a few family photos at the park!  The sun was disappearing quickly, so we had to move fast!  I think in total we had 35 minutes to make this all come together.  I must say though, the low setting sun makes for the BEST soft golden light!  Looking forward to meeting up with these guys again next year to see how much they have grown!

The Lookout Spot ~ Moncton Photographer Tara Geldart

When Amanda booked her wedding photography package with me we talked about the engagement session that is included in the package.  She told me that they had already had engagement photos years ago but every time they tried to plan a wedding a baby came along!  So the best option for these guys was to have a family photography session instead!  

We met in Magnetic Hill, Moncton, NB at the "Lookout Spot".  The kids kept me on my toes and they even threw in a few dog kisses and wet willies for comic relief!  

Their big day is coming up very quickly...check back in near the end of September to check out their Moncton, wedding photos!

Video Fused Moncton Newborn Session

I love introducing new products and services.  I have a few projects in the works but I just cant keep this one to myself anymore!  

Last week I shared photos from a Lifestyle Newborn Session.  During that session, on a complete whim, I shot a few clips of video.  I wanted to capture those little gestures and quiet moments that sometimes can be forgotten over time.  The video clips fused with the photos in a custom made slideshow brings the session to life!

These little gems will be added in the session packages this fall/winter (2016).  I can't wait to create custom family videos for your family!  Click the Play button and enjoy :)

Sunset at Salmon Beach ~ Bathurst NB

It's not often that we get to go out without the kids in tow and this night was no exception so we made the best of it.  Our friends brought their children; they played on the beach, ran wild in the yard, bumped heads in the dark and danced their little hearts out on the deck to the guitar music!

We are so grateful for wonderful friends who are understanding and also see the need to sometimes let the kids stay up way too late and have a little summer time fun!

Thanks for the great night guys!

Now Offering Sessions in Bathurst N.B.

My husband Dean is from Bathurst, NB.  Every summer we spend weekends up there at the camp and at his family's home.  The kids love our time at the camp because we get to cook over the fire, have s'mores every night and stay up really late watching old home movies.  We also spend a lot of time at the beach...my husband fishes for mackerel and the kids run wild.  The little ones are always begging to go to the splash park as soon as we unpack the van and the older ones can't wait to find that soft serve ice cream that comes in a million different flavors!

Since my husband is from Bathurst, we spend a lot of time there, especially in the summer and since most of our friends live there, it only makes sense for me to open up my business to include the northern part of the province.  

I am excited to already have a few family and maternity sessions booked for this summer in Bathurst, NB.  If you would like to book a maternity, newborn, family or engagement session with me, send me a message and we'll discuss which dates are available. 

I also have a few dates left for weddings for this summer.  I am looking forward to exploring where this new venture will take me!  Thank you to all of my clients for being so supportive!  

Moncton Family Photographer ~ Beautiful Spring Family Session

Let me start this by saying there are no words to accurately describe how beautiful these guys are...

We met this week outside of Moncton, NB.  It was pretty chilly so for a while we thought we might reschedule.  I am SO glad that we didn't reschedule!  We had about 35 minutes before the girls decided it was too cold and were over the whole family photo idea, which gave me a few minutes to spend with mom and dad.  

I don't photograph a lot of couples but it is something that I am getting more interested in as I am starting to dip my toes into wedding photography.  

Hope you enjoy this beautiful spring family session; I had a very hard time to choose a few photos to include in this blog post!  The whole gallery was awesome!

Thank you for looking! 

Family sessions are limited and book up quickly!  To make you appointment send me a message and we'll pick a date!

Moncton Newborn Baby + Lifestyle Family Photography Session ~ The Hemsworths

This session is a bit of a hybrid; it's a newborn + lifestyle family session!  I got together with this beautiful family to document the moments that make this time in their lives special.  With a brand new baby boy and a 2 year old little girl (and I haven't forgotten Ebony the Black Lab!) these guys have a lot going on in their day to day lives and I wanted to create images that were reflective of this time for them.

To document their current lifestyle with their new baby, we spent most of our time quietly hanging out in the  playroom and living room.  Big sister wanted to show me a few things in the playroom, so we started in there and let her lead the rest of the session.  Baby G hardly made a sound the entire time so he was pretty cool with the whole process!

I must say though, that big sister totally stole my heart!  I cannot believe that she is only 2!  She is quite the character.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and her family.

Documentary Family Photo Session with the Mortons ~ Moncton, NB Photographer

Hair in a ponytail, no make-up, kid's pick out their own clothes and dad is thrilled not to have to sit pretty; this is the type of photo session that just makes sense!  

Jenna Morton at Pickle Planet Moncton and her family share the same vision.  The moments worth documenting are the everyday things that often go unnoticed or taken for granted.

A Day at the Farm! - Moncton Family Photographer

Horses have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.  So when my momma asked if I could take some photos of them with their horses, I was all for it!  Mom said she had never had a photo taken with her and her horse that she really loved.  That made me sad and set the bar really high!

The Stile's Family - Moncton Family Photographer

Once again I got to travel back to Elgin, NB to photograph a family session.  It has got to be one of the most beautiful spots in NB.  Late in the fall, the maple trees hang low on each side of the road forming a gorgeous archway of fall foliage to drive through!  I love this place.  This day, after I drove through the archway of maple trees, I pulled into the Stile's farm.  This is what our afternoon looked like:

Dawn + Kids & Critters - Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer

I've had this friend for as long as I can remember.  She's the kind of friend that you get into mischief with when you are young and who will take the fall for you if the moment calls for it (thank you!) The one who always has your back even when life gets busy.  Do you know what I mean?  One of those special friends that you can go a long time with out talking to each other but easily pick up where you left off the next time you meet for coffee!

Tess and Babies - Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived for this lifestyle family session in Elgin, NB.  I had been there before (It's my favorite place to drive around aimlessly!) but I wasn't so sure about how early the sun disappeared behind the mountain in the evening.  I was actually very nervous; I know that mom was excited for the family session and I didn't want to disappoint her.
