Doula + Birth Photography ($2300)

In addition to my doula services, I also offer professional birth and newborn photography.

Photography services include

· Complete photo coverage during and immediately after your labor
· 20-min family newborn session during our postpartum visit.
· All high-res, digital images from both sessions

Tara is extremely knowledgeable, and her expertise made my wife and me feel much more confident...Tara has an unaffected openness that lets her ‘be herself’—warm, interested, fun, grateful—in a way that prompts everyone nearby to feel comfortable being themselves too...So I recommend Tara’s doula services, but what I especially recommend is Tara herself. I’m not just glad Tara was able to help make the birth experience a positive one for my wife. I’m glad my daughter was born into a room made warm by Tara’s depth of humanity.

Service Area

I base my service area on how feasible it is for me to get to your location given the unpredictability of traffic in the DC area. There are many great hospitals in the area, but some are just too far away for me to travel to them.

There is a $75 travel fee for clients more than 20 miles from Vienna, VA.
