Milestone Photographer in SOMD | M is ONE

I love being a milestone photographer. Getting to know families and doing sessions every few months is such a joy… I’m always curious about what new milestone the baby has hit. With my kids being almost 9, 6 and 4, milestones are still there, but they’re different. So much happens that first year… and it’s so much fun to document.

Mackenzie’s first birthday session was a mix of a family session, portraits, and cake smash, which is my favorite way to do a first birthday shoot. It’s easy to accomplish all of it in an hour, too… we always end with the cake!

This session even had some geese that wanted to photo bomb and be part of the session! I was pleased that Mackenzie was not a bit worried about the geese crashing her party.

Mackenzie’s mom kept everything low key… just a tasty home made cake, and we even wove in some portraits in her favorite purple chair from home.

I have noticed that each session families are more and more comfortable with me and with being in front of the camera. I love getting to know them and how comfortable the flow can be. It’s definitely a win for great photos!

If you’d like to book a milestone session, please contact me at teresa@tcjdesign.com or through my contact page. I would love to be your child’s milestone photographer!

WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR PEOPLE WHO want their story told

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.
