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!

An Afternoon With an East Coast Mermaid! ~ Moncton Photographer Tara Geldart

Have you been following along with the East Coast Mermaid Blog?  I promise, you'll be pleasantly delighted!  Her East Coast adventures and seaside tales are super inspiring and will have you itchin' for a local vacay!

I met with Crystal from East Coast Mermaid for a coffee a few months back and we chatted about local business and how some really great things can come from something so unexpected!  

If things start happening, don’t worry...don’t stew. Just go right along and you’ll start happening too

A few weeks after our initial meeting, we met downtown Moncton and strolled the streets, climbed to a rooftop and stopped at a nearby Starbucks.  Crystal shared her favorites from our Moncton lifestyle photography session on her blog today along with a fabulous review and a Promo Code.

Head on over to her blog and fall in love with her mermaid tales!

Don't Miss a Moment ~ The importance of Telling Your Family's Story

I bet I am not alone here...I say it all of the time and I hear others say it as well....my babies are growing up way too quickly.  They are changing everyday and they have these little quirky things about them that I know are not going to last very long.  

I don't want to wake up one morning and wonder what happened to all of those little moments.  You know the one....like playing with play-doh in the living room and getting it stuck to the couch or going outside to get into the van before an appointment and the baby lays down in the middle of the biggest puddle in the drive way (this actually happens way too often...you think I would have caught on by now) or the trail of clothing left on the kitchen floor because the child who is about to start school likes to strip down to her undies as soon as she gets home!

These are the things that I keep talking about.  This is what makes documentary family photography so special, so important and  so necessary.  It's your story!  No one else has a story like yours...you're moments are special.  Let's document them!

I wrote a little bit more about this as a guest post on Hello Dear Photographer.  Go on over there and have a little peek!  Don't miss a moment ;)

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!

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:

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.
