Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Hi, I'm Tara Donaldson, a new photographer in NYC specializing in motherhood and maternity photography. When my son was born, I saw the world with new eyes and my focus shifted to preserving every fleeting moment of the beauty of his life and our bond. Now, I want to do the same for others: be a small part of capturing those moments, that unspeakable, all-consuming love, and translating it into art that will become memories for your children and their children. My focus is storytelling; capturing love and life. My style is emotive, like bottling an intimate moment to save forever. I won't pose you, but rather allow you to be in a state of love or play or laughter. I can also provide prompts for those keen for a bit of guidance. I shoot in natural light and natural settings, either in-home or outdoors, weather permitting. Studio rental is also an option for clients who prefer it. I will provide wardrobe guidance and can also provide some pieces for use during the shoot. I will always take the time to make sure what we create is something you'll cherish for a lifetime. Will look forward to hearing from you!

Tara’s warm and friendly energy makes it easy to get comfortable and ease into a photo session. From a portrait shoot on the very public and bustling cobblestone streets of downtown Manhattan to the quiet and calm of a maternity session in a home - she’s mindful of the person, the setting and it shows in the beautiful photos. Being a mother herself, you can tell she takes great care to capture the tenderness of intimate moments - and she has an eye for the details too. I can’t wait to recommend her to the next friend to document and remember such an important time in one’s life.

Tara has a great eye for photography. I enjoyed my maternity shoot at 37 weeks and I felt so comfortable with her. The pictures turned out beautiful. I would recommend her 10/10!
Background Check

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently priced below market value as a new business working to build customer trust.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have a brief 'get to know you' questionnaire that I send out once bookings are finalized so you can share what you're looking for from your shoot and your photos, as well as a little about you and your comfort level. From there, we can have a phone call, depending on client preference, to discuss anything further.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have spent 10 years working in the fashion industry, including gaining tips of the trade from leading industry photographers. Otherwise, I am largely self-taught, as are many photographers in the motherhood/maternity category.
