About Me



My name is Tamara Hart and I am a natural light newborn photographer in Goose Creek, SC. I spent 13 years in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and I’ve worked everywhere in a hospital from Labor & Delivery to the ER, OR and the Intensive Care Unit. I even worked at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) as an Anesthesia Tech for a while. I always thought I would end up as a Nurse, but my passion for photography became much more to me.

I am a mom to two beautiful little kids, my son is 10 and my daughter is 7 and I’ve been married to my best friend for 12 years. I love HGTV, coffee and sleeping in and I hate laundry. I am very much a creative and I jokingly state that I shouldn’t be allowed in a craft store unsupervised as I will probably start a million projects. We are a Disney crazy Annual Passholder family and will dash down to the happiest place on earth every chance we get.


After my daughter was born in 2009 I realized that capturing newborns was what I wanted to do. Bump Meet Baby Photography began in 2010 as a hobby on the weekends while I was on Active Duty and then became my full time career in 2012 with the opening of my commercial natural light studio. I have had the honor of capturing over 500 newborns so far and I have learned how to soothe, pose and photograph them in a very safe and controlled environment.

I am originally from Northern California and have lived in South Carolina since 2007. The south is growing on me (slowly). I still don’t understand smocked dresses or peterpan collars. All joking aside, this town is home for us and I have made so many friends and have been blessed to be able to live my dreams. I would be honored to work with you!


I am so honored and grateful to have my work recognized and featured!

    Lisa Volek - Do you do workshops? I am a doula and I am going to my community college, I am getting an A.S. in communications / photography. I am 54 and reinventing myself, I learn much better by doing so I feel workshops would be beneficial to my learning.
