Session info Let's do this! bump to baby • children • seniors

Thank you for considering to work with Tara Brooks Photography. Although my preference is to be a full-service photographer, who works with you from start to finish delivering you high quality prints and products, I understand that many clients prefer to have the digital images from their session.

Even though I do offer digital images, you still have the option to purchase prints and products directly through me. We can work together to customize your session to include prints, products, collages, albums or wall galleries. There is nothing I love more than to present my clients with beautiful prints and products from their session.

Investment Average Investment $200 - $800
maternity

Welcoming a new addition to your family is one of the most exciting moments. The memories of motherhood begin before you give birth. There is nothing more special to me as capturing a new mommy to be, seeing her glow and hearing the excitement in her voice as she talks about meeting the amazing little person that is almost ready to make their appearance. These are the first of many memories you will have as you begin your wonderful adventure. To be part of your story would be an honor.

newborn

Spontaneous smiles, stretching, flakey skin, those sweet little newborns - there is nothing more precious. I love to create images that reflect the emotional bond you and your baby share, along with every little detail. My goals are simple. When you see your images, I want you to instantly remember these intimate, fleeting moments and to relive the joy you feel right now. These images are meant to be heirlooms. Investments in future memories that will warm hearts for generations. 

children

Belly laughs, crawling, running, singing, dancing and always unpredictable! I love photographing children. Although the majority of the sessions I photograph are younger children, I do photograph tweens and teens as well. Capturing their personalities, watching them grow and providing you with these memories is a privilege.

seniors

The senior photography experience is much more than just creating pictures on paper. It's about capturing the essence of you and allowing your personality to take center stage. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is truly getting to know you and finding a location that conveys your unique style. Senior portraiture is an art form and you as the subject allow me to pursue my passion for photography. My hope is that the images created during your session will be treasured by you and your family for years to come!

family

Family sessions should be fun and filled with laughs! Although sessions can take up to 90 minutes, we try to work quickly so that the little ones (and dad) don’t become bored. During your family session we will capture posed and candid moments of the family together, the children together and individually and of course, we can’t forget the parents! 

At this time, I only offer family sessions for up to 6 people.
