Hello there!

My specialty is bespoke, contemporary childhood photography from baby bump to newborn and beyond, with an emphasis on documenting what makes you and your family shine through all of your milestones.  Your experience with me will be a happy memory in itself!

Lisa Tait Photography is based in Toronto, Canada.  I create fine art pieces for your home and heirloom albums for your family by using my camera to harness the special moments that happen in between things.  I work mostly with natural and available light and shoot on location (in your home, a favourite park, a neighbourhood haunt…).  My photographs are lifestyle in spirit – with a little dash of whimsy for good measure.

My mother gave me my very first camera when I was about 7 and it rocked my world.  It changed how I saw things.  From then on, I always had a camera with me and documented everything I could… Fast-forward a few years to university where I studied film and fine art and continued to use all kinds of cameras for both moving and still images (35 mm, 8mm, 16mm…). I’ve taken my camera to Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Argentina, Chile, London, Amsterdam, Zurich as well as across Canada (coast-to-coast) and it is especially familiar with New England.  I spent several years working professionally in the non-profit world working for charities including the MS Society and the Jane Goodall Institute before deciding to pursue my long-time passion and bring my unique art to families who adore it. I love every minute of it!


Lisa went to great lengths to ensure our comfort as well as the comfort of our baby throughout the shoot, and patiently worked with us to generate photos that have been cherished by our family and friends, and will serve as a beautiful reminder of the excitement and joy of our baby’s first days with us. I would highly recommend Lisa Tait Photography to those looking for a photographer who will take beautiful photographs that honor the magic of a child’s first few weeks on earth (and beyond!).
