D is for Documentary and December

So you may be like me, looking outside the weather looks cold even though it is 58 degrees. The unpredictability of winter weather and the fear of paying money to stand outside and freeze keeps a lot of people from booking sessions during the winter months.

I think December is a great time, though, to book my favorite type of a session: a documentary session. Family sessions and longer documentary sessions can be done indoors and allow you to capture those holiday traditions.

documentary-adJust think about the things that make you remember being a kid in December: cutting down Christmas trees, decorating Christmas trees, making cookies and crafts, and just spending time with each other. Maybe the weather drives you to do indoor activities together like playing board games or visiting the aquarium.

I don’t know about your family, but those activities are what spawn the most natural smiles from my family. Those are the events I as a mom want to remember for years to come. There’s still a magic in my house that comes with the holidays. We have three kids who believe in the magic of Christmas and the youngest is still small enough we decorate our Christmas tree with all fragile ornaments on top. It looks silly every year, but it’s so fun to have kids so excited about Baby Jesus, Santa, and spending time together.

Take the plunge this year; I’m currently have openings on December 10, 11, and 17. This would be the perfect time to book a session and capture those holiday traditions. Plus, it means mom or dad can be in all of the fun without trying to capture it! 🙂

Meet Teresa


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.
