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!

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!

Pregnancy Announcment Session at Daley's Point ~ Bathurst Maternity Photographer

Lately, I have been shooting a lot of documentary and lifestyle family photo sessions in Moncton. I love those sessions to pieces but when I was asked to shoot this cute little pregnancy announcement session I was eager to see what this creative momma-to-be was going to come up with!

Momma planned out the details of how she wanted this session to go...right down to the last detail!  We met at Daley's Point in Bathurst, NB and traveled around the trails to find just the right locations!  Luckily, this family knows the trails well and let me in the right direction.

At sunset, we made our way down to the beach.  We couldn't have asked for a nicer night!

Congratulations Vanessa, Matt and Holly on this new season in life.

A Sweet Lil' Country Wedding at Blueberry Hill Farms ~ Moncton Wedding Photographer

Some of my favorite events to photograph are small, intimate weddings.  You know, the ones where you feel like part of the family by the time you leave at the end of the night?!  This country wedding was exactly like that!  We met at the house for a few portraits before heading to the venue at Blueberry Hill Farms just outside of Moncton in Elgin, NB.  Congratulations Melissa & Bruce!

High School Senior ~ Grad Sessions

The 2016 grad year is a wrap!  It was such a beautiful year for grad photos...beautiful weather, beautiful flowers, beautiful grads!  

I have been anxiously awaiting for grad ~ senior photos to catch on in this part of the world like they have in other countries and they finally seem to be!  And for good reason!  Senior portraits help mark one of the most pivotal milestones in your life.  This time between childhood and adulthood.  You've worked for years to earn that diploma and you have the world at your feet.  If there was ever a time to have your portrait taken, it is now!  Besides, you'll never be this young and carefree ever again...that translates into some gorgeous photos and a reason to celebrate what makes you stand out from the rest of your graduating class!

This spring I was asked by @Julie Audoux Photographie if I was interested in shooting a senior session with her in an apple orchard...in full bloom!  Of course I was interested!  We had 5 senior girls from Ecole Mathieu-Martin in Dieppe, NB meet us at the orchard for a cute little sunset portrait session.

Congratulations grads of 2016!   

Now booking grads of 2017 in the Moncton & Bathurst NB areas. Contact me today to book your portraits!

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.

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!

The Wilsons: A New Baby BOY!!! - Moncton Newborn Documentary Photographer

When I first spoke with this gorgeous momma, I told her about my desire to do a documentary newborn session.  I told her all of the details that are so important at this stage and how I felt like the majority of it swirls into a blur or days, diapers, tears and spilled milk.  The moments spend rocking, nursing, snuggling a new baby soon disappear and I don't know about you but the older my kids get, the less I remember unless I have something to help me trigger the memory.
