LIFESTYLE PORTRAIT & DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE A STORY TO TELL.

Photography is about telling stories. Your love story. Your story with a newborn. Your story with the chaos of kids. Your story of those kids leaving your home. Photography lets you freeze that story in time so you can share it with others. Let me tell your story.

Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism. You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
