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!

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!

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!  

Simple and Effective Ways to be a More Productive Small Business Owner

Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer ~ Tara Geldart

Lately I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with keeping all of the balls in the air.  It's Spring time; It's time to put the garden in, spring clean the house, and it's fiddlehead picking time :) Plus it's the time of the year that business picks back up again (yay!)

I sat down to organize a few things around here and with my business; You can read about what I have done to be a more productive small business owner over at Why Hello Dear Photographer Blog

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 Photographer ~ Top 100 in Shoot and Share Photo Contest

I have some great news!!!  Back in January I submitted photos to the Shoot and Share Photo Contest.  I really wasn't expecting much since I knew that the talent submitting to the contest was top notch but I decided to try anyway; at the very least, I would be able to gauge how my images stood against other professional photographers.  

This contest saw entries from 120 different countries with more than 225,000 photos being entered from top level pro photographers!  

I am thrilled to share my top images with you!

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!
