You were born to make art...for the glory of God and the benefit of others.
EMILY P. FREEMAN
Hello! I'm Teresa, child of God, artist, grateful wife, and homeschool mom to two lovely girls, Emilie (7) and Noelle (3). With neutral and soft palette, pure light, and layers of texture, I create artistic images to display the natural beauty of maternity, newborn, baby, and family beginning in 2015. My brand speaks for itself in the simple, elegant, and authentic style portrayed, as well as the fine art custom experience I deliver to my clients. - I'm excited you are here to get to know me.
My photographic vision and style is especially influenced by my role as a mother. I keep experiencing, on a daily basis, what it means to be patient, to be kind, not envying, not boasting, not being proud, but always protecting, always trusting, always hoping, and always persevering (1 Corinthians 13:4,7). My motherly love translates into simple yet uniquely elegant persepctive when it comes to capturing beautiful stories of your baby, and extra patience for newborn safety and handling.
Motherhood changes everything. I graduated from the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston with a Ph.D. in Genes & Development in 2008 and was working as a researcher. In 2015, God called me to leave my full-time job in order to focus more on my family and my photography business. I live in Houston, Texas, a place I’ve called home since I married my sweet husband in 2005.
Children are the most selfless and precious gift from God (Psalm 127:3). My precious little ones have secured a unique place in my heart even before they were born. Oh how I wish to treasure them forever! With my mother's heart, I established Teresa Yiu Photography to capture the pure joy and beauty of motherhood, newborn, baby, and toddlers. My hope is that, one day, when your children flip through your printed proofs, they can know how much they have been loved and treasured, from the moment their mama was pregnant.
A mother’s love is the greatest love a human can give. Your investment in professional photograpy sessions is the best gift for those that come after you: your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren,etc. I am the artist that will help cature your family legacy.
