Do you have a child who hardly smiles at the mall portrait studios? In the last three years, Mom had been investing in ten minute portrait sessions, finally, she came to me looking for a different experience. Every family is unique, so is every child. During our pre-session consultation, Mom filled out a detailed questionnaire that was extremely helpful for planning the session. Mom also received personalized styling to help her and her family get ready for their “big day”.

Kids can be quite challenging and unpredictable sometimes. Once we arrived at the beautiful field, daughter was fuzzy and cried over a very little thing. Since it wasn’t a ten-minute, shoot-and-burn session, we took our time to calm down the child. And there were just so many things to distract a preschooler in the field. The wild flowers around her. The birds in the sky. Cool breeze and fresh air. The next second, she was singing along with the birds. The whole family was so relaxed and enjoyed the sunset session together. The results? Artistically refined and authentic images and memories to be treasured for a lifetime.

Mom came back to the studio, and was surprised that her daughter smiled and even giggled in all of the images. We realize that not everyone can afford boutique photography, but this mom was willing to so, and vows to never go back to the mall.

Would you like to experience the difference at Teresa Yiu Photography? Limited family portrait sessions are available upon request.

I was so excited to see Allison back to my studio with her precious baby girl Annemarie. Parents sat back and relaxed in the waiting area, while I dressed up Annemarie and put on her cute little tiebacks, one after another. How I felt like having a princess party with her! The fun part of my job is to coordinate colors. I love using monochromatic and neutral tones. This time I added a subtle hue of pink for a feminine look. Baby turned out looking elegant and sweet in every image. I really appreciate the trust my clients placed in me to design their session, handle their baby, and capture today’s moments, which will in turn become tomorrow’s treasures.

“I was lucky enough to have Teresa conduct my maternity and newborn photography sessions. And I couldn’t be happier with the results. 
For my maternity session, she picked a wonderful location and used the natural light to further enhance the beauty of pregnancy. I’m one of those people who do not enjoy having their photo taken, but Teresa made me feel very relaxed with her calm demeanor. By far, the best I have ever looked in photographs.
Teresa’s calming effect also aided in a smooth newborn photography session for the entire family. Teresa was so gentle with our little one that she slept throughout the entire session! The poses she chose highlighted our daughter’s best features and her props are adorable and tasteful. Her framed pictures and prints are also of the highest quality and I’m confident our family will be able to enjoy our photos for many years to come.” – Allison T.

If you think having a newborn baby brings you tons of work, then having twins means ten times the work. Well, it changes everything when BOTH parents are perfect partners and share the workload with a joyful heart! While this lovely family was at my studio, Mom and Dad worked together with harmony and love. They smartly color-coded the two babies’ personal belongings, and each took care of one baby without even needing to speak with each other! Such a perfect team!! And their twins, Pierce + Kennedy were just…perfectly handsome and beautiful babies! It was such a joy to document the new additions to their family.

We LOVE our newborn pics! Teresa is extremely talented and pays attention to all the little details.  She is extremely patient which we really appreciated as new parents.  We will cherish our beautiful pictures forever. – Jessica L.

You probably won’t believe me: this maternity session was taken in the midst of a severe storm. Once we both got into our cars, rain poured down fiercely and darkness quickly fell on the rainy road.

The road of motherhood is often filled with unexpected challenges that require our endless sacrifice and endurance.

But aren’t you amazed that this mom-to-be still looked so beautiful, calm, and loving?

Even when the circumstances appear stormy, a mother is always tender-hearted and loves unconditionally.

A mother’s love begins the moment she is pregnant.

A mother’s love interacts with her child even before he/she is born.

A mother’s love is beautifully captured as she is creating her family…

She runs around all day making sure that her family is well taken care of. The to-do list is always endless. There is surely not enough time to achieve everything she needs to tackle. She often finds herself too busy to even take care of herself… But when we had our motherly session together, time seemed to have stopped, our atmosphere was filled with laughters and joy. My favorite part as a photographer is capturing the lovely interaction between a mother and her child, resulting precious memories to be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast… Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4,7) A mother’s love is the greatest love a human can give.
