Tara Griest Photography

Capturing every second of a new babies life is important. However, finding a great newborn photographer can be quite hard. Thankfully with Caleb, I found Tara Griest! Tara and I met when I was about eight months pregnant on a hayride at my campground and we hit it off right away. We friended each other on Facebook and right before I had Caleb, she offered to come take his newborn pictures.

I was ecstatic to say the least! I had stalked her photography page on Facebook and her newborn pictures were quite impressive. I also was very excited that I didn’t have to leave my house for the session. As many of you know, Caleb was supposed to be my VBAC, but instead he was my repeat cesection so not having to leave the house was perfect!

I am not sure where my precious, well behaved baby went during our photo session but he vanished and in his place was a fussy, gassy, practically none stop crying beast! Even though I was getting frustrated that he was pooping and peeing every five minutes Tara kept her cool the entire time and patiently waited for me to nurse him back to sleep time and time again.

She brought everything she needed for the session, even special hard wood flooring! All I had to provide was the cute baby.


The end results of our in home session were more amazing than I every could have imagined! Check them out below:

    Oh my gosh what a beautiful baby. The results of all of that crying didn’t show a bit. I love them. She and her model are perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  3. She did a wonderful job with the photos. My fave is the one of baby wearing the blue bow tie.
