The Consultation

Once your’ve paid your session fee and signed your contract, we’ll get together to plan your perfect session! We’ll go over color, theme, cultural considerations, and even keepsakes you want to incorporate. Your session will be perfectly styled to compliment your style and tug on your heart strings.

Session Day

The day of your session, all you need to do is open your front door! I’ll bring everything we need for your session, right to to the comfort of your home. After I’ve worked my magic, we’ll schedule a reveal and ordering appointment within one week when you’ll get to view your images and select your keepsakes.

Reveal & Ordering

This is the best part! You finally get to see your beautiful images and we’ll work together to choose artwork for you home from the variety of products and keepsakes I offer. You won’t believe how much your little one has already changed since the last time we saw each other!

I want you to be completely comfortable.

Your session day should be relaxing and easy… that means, I come to you so your family can relax at home while I take over for a bit. All I need is a 10×10 section of floor and an outlet to work my magic!

I’ll bring everything needed for your session so all you have to do is open the door! No packing up, no navigating getting out of the house on time with a brand new baby, just hanging out at home while I make your baby into a sweet little potato.

Sit back, relax, and experience the quality of a studio session in the comfort of your home! 

Frequently Asked Questions


When should I schedule my newborn session?

At least two months before your due date! I will schedule your due date in my calendar and only take a limited number of newborns a month for flexibility of scheduling. Due to the limited openings, dates fill up sometimes a few months in advance.

What age is best for photographing newborns?

I will never turn away a baby due to age, but the squishiest poses are most easily achieved between 5-20 days old.

Why are newborn sessions so expensive?

Newborns require extensive training and specialized equipment to photograph safely. Beautiful images take time and patience to produce and should not be attempted half heartedly.

How long will my newborn session last?

Between 2-4 hours, depending on how baby does. They’re in charge and their session will not be forced or rushed in any way. Safety ALWAYS comes first.

When will I get my photos?

We will schedule your reveal and ordering session for no later than two weeks from your session date. Products will be delivered approximately 4-6 weeks after ordering.


When should I book my maternity session?

The sooner the better! Maternity sessions are done between 30-36 weeks to ensure you’ve got a gorgeous bump but are still comfortable. My sweet spot is 32 weeks and I recommend booking at least two months in advance to guarantee your preferred date.

Do I get a discount for booking maternity and newborn together?

Yes! Adding a newborn session onto your maternity booking is only an extra $100 and you get 10% off at both ordering appointments! 

How long is a maternity session?

         Maternity sessions generally last 2-3 hours, including hair and makeup and travel time if we are shooting on location

Can I bring my spouse, kids, dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, etc?

Hell yes! The more the merrier. Let’s get weird.

Where will my session take place?

Either in your home or on location. All I need is a 10×10 space, but please don’t feel like you need to clean for me!

What do I need to do before the day of my session?

Nothing! The day of your session all you have to do is let me in. We will provide hair & makeup and make you feel pampered from start to finish so you can just be your beautiful self.


How long will this take?

Family sessions typically last about an hour. If everyone’s having a good day, 30 minutes tops!

Do I have to smile?

You don’t HAVE to, but I can probably get you to. Family sessions are more lifestyle than posed, which means I’ll loosely pose you and then make you do silly things that generally get a silly reaction and encourage smiling.

What do I wear?

Whatever you’re comfortable in! I’m happy with PJs or black tie. If you need help, I’m happy to make suggestions. Check out my blog about choosing outfits here!

What if my kids won’t smile?

Oh, I’ll get them to smile. If not, then you’ll have a precious and accurate memory of their personality at whatever age they’re at!


Where is your studio?

My studio is wherever you are! I come to you and bring everything I need for your session, including wardrobe, hair, and makeup.

How much is this gonna cost me?

I do not have a minimum investment, so you only purchase the images you love! My clients’ average investment is about $1500-2500, and generally includes a combination of digital images and artwork.


"We had an excellent experience with Tasha. She was quick to respond to our questions and easy to schedule. Her prop selection was great and she even made a little stuffie especially for our shoot. The pictures came out even better than expected. We shot during Covid-19 and felt very safe with all the precautions taken. Will definitely be using her again for baby #2."


"Our family has been fortunate to know Tasha for years. Tasha has taken our yearly family photos, maternity photos and most recently newborn photos. Tasha goes above and beyond to make your vision come to life! Or you can let her creativity go wild and you will not be disappointed with the final result. Our most recent pictures were of our precious rainbow baby. Tasha understood the significance of his arrival and captured that in every picture. Tasha is great with my 11 year old son, she always manages to get just the right picture that shows his personality in all its glory! While managing my husband who begrudgingly agrees to family pictures once a year! Tasha’s work is proudly displayed throughout our house, I would highly recommend her to capture the moments you don’t want to forget!"


"Dreadon Studios (Tasha) took my maternity and newborn/family photos and they came out so amazing! Well above expectations. She is extremely professional and easy to work with. I was so impressed with how well she knows how to pose people to make sure they look their best in the photo. I plan on using Dreadon Studios for my son's first birthday pictures as well. I am so happy that I have such beautiful photos that captured the beautiful memories to look back on for years to come."


"Tasha put in the extra time, energy and creativity for our newborn photo session compared to other photographers we have used in the past. We adore our pictures and will treasure them for years to come. I recommend ordering photos through her to get the best quality, the photos look like artwork on our wall. Our family photos will continue to be taken by Tasha, I highly recommend!"


"Our family had such a great experience working with Dreadon studios. The owner, Tasha was super easy to work with and was able to wrangle our wild kids into some great lifestyle photos both indoor and outside! The prints we ordered look beautiful in our home and the quality is fantastic. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a lifestyle photographer."


"Obsesssssed!! The best newborn photographer in the area. She makes the whole process absolutely seamless. Highly recommend!"
