pregnancy, those first days, the first year, and the bond beyond

specializing in photographing

no stress mama I ve got it covered

Located in Yorktown, Virginia, the studio provides maternity, newborn, baby, and motherhood photography with a classic, timeless feel.  Bright and dreamy is my signature style; so white, neutrals and soft colors are what you'll see most.  The studio has two areas, a place for more posed, traditional newborn portraits, and then a neutral lifestyle room where I take those snuggly photographs with mom and dad in a more organic way.

My heart is broken while I miss out on all of your newborns in the hospital, but I don't want you to miss out on those important first photographs, so I have created a free guide to help you achieve some beautiful results.  

Enjoy! <3

"Tamara has been photographing our family for literal years now. She was present, camera in hand, for the birth of our daughter. She’s made every interaction with us comfortable and memorable. Even with an infant and then a toddler her expertise, patience, and artistic vision has moved each session along quickly while never sacrificing quality. My home is covered in photos that Tamara has taken and we get SO many compliments from friends and family on how absolutely gorgeous our portraits are. I don’t plan on ever using another photographer to capture our families’ lives."

"I did my newborn pictures with Tamara. They are perfect. She is an artist and her work is meticulous, classy, and super high quality. She came to our home. She brought all the props, she shared ideas and listened to ours. She was easy to work with, great communication, and the end result was better than I had hoped. We will cherish these pictures always. Thank you again!!!"
