Photojournalistic First Year & Beyond sessions

Kansas City Newborn Photographer

Your Kansas City Newborn Photography

Do you want to feel these moments ten years from now and remember these sweet moments exactly as they are? 


SLEEP... is important
HAVING A GLASS OF WATER... is important 
EATING BREAKFAST... is important 
SNUGGLES... are important

Then a documentary newborn session is for you!

My goal is to make this process as easy for you as possible, that means all you need to do is fill out a newborn photography contact form and we can chat about what easy means for you!

These photo journalistic sessions are customizable to fit YOUR needs, not mine.  Let me help you capture the moments without adding outfit choices, clean homes, or traveling to a studio with a fresh squish...  you have a little one to grow!

1. Say Hello

2. book your session

After you reach out via the contact form, we can finalize all the details right from your phone or computer. 

Once booked all you have to do is sign the contract, pay your session fee, and mark our session down in your schedule! 


No outfit planning, no cleaning your home, and no extra prep!

You get a complimentary pre-session zoom call where we can chat about how your family wants to use your photos, special family moments you want to capture, or talk about any additional questions you may have.

Schedule a laid back chat with me! I will most likely have a toddler or puppy on my lap during this chat so feel free to bring yours along too.  After this call you are set and don't need to plan ANYTHING else!

3. ask me Anything

Remember these sessions are authentic and should tell your story. There is no need to prep!  Your house can be exactly how it is, your clothing can be whatever you feel comfortable in, and your baby can be in cozy attire.

 All you need to do is have your windows open and favorite toys out for big kids! Let the good, real, and natural activities happen and do your normal routine!

4. Photo day!

After your session, you will get an online proofing gallery of images to review and order from.  Does going through photos and ordering sound overwhelming for you? You also get an optional complimentary zoom call to review your proofing gallery.

Make your to-do list smaller! Let me help you plan, order, and purchase in a simplified way. I can help you order EXACTLY what you need; with no extra money wasted on images you don't or won't use. We can brainstorm together about what products you actually want in your house.

Capturing authentic storytelling through documentary photography just means that Instead of forcing your family into poses and awkward positions at home, I am focusing on the real nitty-gritty true and amazing candid moments!  Let me help you remember all the good stuff.

The details
Say Hello


Tarah is the pinnacle of photojournalist AND lifestyle photography! She has this eye for light and color that create true art. We moved away from KC two years ago and we go back each year because no one else can get photos that I want hung all over my home and on my Christmas card. Her edits are always so tasteful and lovely. If you’re looking for stuffy, posed photos, Wildwood is not for you. But if you want shots of your family being authentically themselves, having fun, laughing and loving life, there is no one better.

Outdoor Family Session


"My son and I had so much fun at our session last weekend! I am impressed with how dedicated Tarah is to making sure she gets to know her clients and what they hope to capture in the session. The pre and post zoom sessions are fantastic! When I received the proofs I was blown away. So many amazing moments she caught on film that will be treasured forever."

Children's Portrait Session


"I recently moved to KC from LA, and am SO thankful I found Wildwood Photography!! I'm not comfortable in front of the camera, and Tarah made myself and my entire family feel so comfortable, have a ton of fun, and get INCREDIBLE shots!! I asked her to do some professional creative shots for my business (I'm a singer) as well as family shots, and she was able to create such gorgeous shots! I'm truly blown away! Best photographer in KC, hands down"

Outdoor Family Session


Absolutely loved Tarah's ability to capture our family in our first home with our first child who turned one. She blended right in with us and we almost forgot she was there, which led to some truly magical pictures! We will be using Tarah in the future! Her work is amazing!

Documentary Milestone Session


"We had such an excellent experience with Tarah and Wildwood Photography. We worked on a commercial project for our company (we are in a separate state), and she delivered all that we requested and more. Tarah is an excellent story teller, as well as a great communicator. She is very organized, has a great response time, and not once did I worry about a single thing. Our photo / video subjects had nothing but dreamy things to say about Tarah, and our project is turning out amazing. I would not hesitate to hire Wildwood Photography again."
