If you don’t do any activities, NO WORRIES! We will create beautiful images that you will be excited to show your friends and family. Let’s do this!

We will communicate about your family and what kinds of things you enjoy doing together. I like to get a sense of each person so I can connect with them during our session. We will decide where the session will take place and take care of all the boring, but important, proposal and contract paperwork. I am also here to assist with styling your family if you’d like.

Your session day! It’s time to bust out those dance moves and give me your best dinosaur noise. Just kidding (but not really). We will have so much fun during your session you won’t even realize the hour has gone by so fast. You will leave realizing that really wasn’t so bad :)

the family experience

Is your family needing new art work for your walls at home? Maybe you want to capture a special birthday or event. If you’re looking for anything family related you’ve come to the right place! I know there are many talented photographers in town, all who can deliver you some amazing images. However, they’re not me. Most of my families keep coming back because of the relationship I have built with them and their children. I love kids! They are so special and I take my time getting to know their personalities and their likes and dislikes so that I am able to capture their precious little faces just like you want to remember them. So, are you ready to experience how fun family pictures can actually be? (Yes, dads, I’m talking to you!)

Assessing the weather will happen on an ongoing basis. Depending on what type of shoot you are scheduled for there will be an option to use an indoor studio. The session may be rescheduled at my discretion.

Typically for weddings it's about 10-12 weeks. For portrait sessions (families, seniors, newborn) it is about 2-4 weeks.

Real Stories

Tessa has been taking our family pictures since our first child was born. Our kids adore her and I can always trust that she will miraculously make each session such a success (no matter how chaotic our young family can be). I am so grateful that she has filled the walls of our home with beautiful moments captured! 

"Our kids adore her!"

- Katrin B.

Real Stories

Tessa is absolutely fantastic. She has taken my family photos for two years in a row and I hope she takes them for the next 20 years. I have two small children and she works SO WELL with them, she is patient, fun, and makes family pictures so easy. My shy little guy warms up to her after about 5 minutes. She really has an eye for capturing your family's best moments.

"Tessa is patient, fun, and makes family pictures easy!"

Real Stories

Tessa has taken our pictures for years. She always seems to capture the little moments between the poses and smiles that are priceless. She has a special ability with kids and always makes the experience fun and enjoyable for everyone. She has done our pets, our kids, our extended family, and more. Tessa is always our “go to” when we want timeless, beautiful and perfect pictures. I recommend her to everyone.

"Tessa is our "go to!"
