Calvert County Photographer Branding Session | Lisa {Hyperfocus Now}

Branding Sessions are not sessions I get to do often, but I love them when I do get a few mixed in! Lisa reached out to me because she needed some updated headshots and images to use for her new business endeavor Hyperfocus Now.

One-on-one sessions like a branding session are so much fun because I love getting to know new people! Lisa’s business is focused on online education, so as a high school teacher myself, I was intrigued. I know of other companies similar to hers that I explored when I thought about teaching online when we lived in Texas.

Besides chatting about work, we discovered we both are military spouses and that she goes to Church at our old parish! I think discovering these connections are what I love the most about photography. As I get older, my husband and I are just so tired and have become such introverts. With every new job, he gets leadership positions where it’s more challenging for him to have a friend unit from work. I we didn’t have the parents of our kids’ friends, my co-workers from the high school, and a few neighbors, we’d have no friends!

Photography allows me to get to know individuals and families in our community, which I love! And if I’m lucky enough, I get invited back time after time for all of their important events!

Also, huge, huge thanks to The Lobby Coffee Bar for letting us use their venue for the shots! Community over competition! If you haven’t been there, the food is great, and the people who work there are the kindest souls! (It is my place to grade when I don’t want to be home!)

If you are interested in booking a session, message me through my contact page or e-mail me at teresa@tcjdesign.com. I still have summer openings! I would love to help you build your brand with a branding session, capture you children’s milestones, or document the love in your family!

Meet Teresa

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.
