Portrait Sessions typically book 4-6 weeks in advance; weekends often book out further. Fall is a very popular time, so if you're hoping for an October session, you'll want to contact us in July or August.

For newborns, we highly recommend contacting us in your second trimester to get your baby on our books. I only take a limited number of newborn due dates each month to allow for flexibility in scheduling (we never know when little ones will arrive!)

Q: WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK WITH YOU?

Our goal is to give you natural, timeless photography that captures your personality and relationships through the images. That means that through the editing process, our goal is to make your photos look as natural as possible while making you look your best. Just like fashion, editing styles become dated. We believe using light and natural color to capture beautiful images with a clean editing style, (instead of heavy post-processing) will give you a priceless gift that will last generations. We want you to look back on your photos in 50 years and be just as impressed with them as you are now. 

Q: What is your style?

Our favorite locations are the local Metroparks! You are also welcome to suggest a location of your choice (per photographer’s approval) within 30 minutes of Delta, Ohio. We will shoot outdoors in natural light whenever possible from April to early November, and have a studio space for the winter months. Outdoor sessions take place in the late afternoon or evening for the best light. Newborn and 3 Month sessions take place in the studio.

Q: Where do you shoot sessions?

We will post a sneak peek from your session on social media within 24 hours! Turnaround is about 3 weeks to edit and prepare your gallery. A full portrait session typically produces 20-40 edited images, plus black and white edits. Once your gallery is ready, we will send you an email with your gallery link and password. Your gallery will be available for six months after your session.

Q: when will i receive my images?

We will meet at the selected location at the scheduled time, go over any special photo requests or needs you have, and then get shooting! We will do lots of different poses, backgrounds, and walk around our location to get new perspectives. I like to capture the candid moments just as much as the smiling-at-the-camera moments. I’m happy to accommodate any posing ideas you have or any props you’d like to incorporate, but our clients typically have minimal “Pinterest” requests. If you have young children, feel free to bring anything that will keep them happy (snacks, juice, favorite toy, etc.).

Q: What happens during my portrait session?

Newborn sessions take place in the studio and last 2 hours, sometimes longer if baby is a light sleeper or is hungry! To achieve the sweet, flexible poses you see in my portfolio, we need a very sleepy and calm baby. We highly recommend your session take place when your baby is 5-17 days old, as they sleep more during this age and will be most cooperative to pose and photograph.  We follow your baby’s lead during the session and stop if baby needs soothing, changing or feeding. 

Q: What can i expect during my newborn session?

We supply all of the backdrops, furniture, hats, headbands and wraps for the session. Our style tends to lean more towards simple, neutral images that focus on your sweet baby, rather than elaborate sets and props. Of course we are happy to accommodate special items you’d like to incorporate, but our clients typically have minimal “Pinterest” requests. Newborns are happier if they are not changed too often, and therefore will be swaddled or naked for the majority of the session.

Q: do i need to bring any props or outfits to my newborn session?

Tara does an amazing job keeping newborns calm and dreaming up the most beautiful poses. Love her artistic eye and how patient she is!


Rachel

We used CTJohnson Photography for our maternity and newborn sessions. On our maternity session, Tara did an amazing job capturing our love for each other and our excitement of the new one on the way. We could hardly decide which photos to hang on the wall because they were all so good!

You've gone above & beyond all of my expectations! My daughter's Christmas photos are amazing. Thank you for being patient with my strong willed toddler, and for providing us with amazing pictures in a timely manner. You are truly gifted and we are so happy we chose you.
