Mamas, whether working full-time or staying at home, are the most devoted, loving, and patient persons in the world. We are the ones who don’t mind giving up our time, energy, dream, or even career in order to nurture the little humans God entrusted in our hands. We never ask for anything in turn, and just a smile on our child’s face can constantly melt our heart.

As we’re approaching May and the Mother’s Day, I would like to use this opportunity to honor moms who have been working so hard for their family behind the scene, who are also the historians of the family, always ready with a phone in their hands to capture special moments and every day memories. Our Mommy & Me sessions are the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for all the lovely mamas, so that you can get in front of the camera with your little ones, and have your memories best captured in simple, elegant, and authentic portraits.

The mini sessions are 30 minutes long, in studio or outdoors, on select days in April and May. Collections with heirloom products are available for purchase within one week of your session:

Custom photography is an investment, and it’s an investment that you would look back again and again years from now. It’s all about your family, your little ones, and all the precious details about this stage of life. I often go above and beyond to provide highly personalized style of portraiture in both photographs and experience.

My client booked during her first trimester, but we waited until later for our first meeting. During our pre-session consultation, mom wanted her newborn baby’s session to be full of lace, as she would be named after her grandma, a beautiful lady who loved lace. I love the timelessness and elegance of lace so I’ve been stocking on this kind of fabrics over time. I picked creamy white for her props as it always goes well with the lace and match with the tan and brown shades in my client’s house. We also met with their 2-year-old firstborn daughter so we got to know each other before the session.

On the day of the session, I felt so blessed to meet my client’s two daughters, each beautiful and unique in their own way. I spent a lot of time playing and talking with big sister. At her age, it’s still difficult to cope with the changes of having a new baby at home. We snapped a few pictures for her first so she would feel important. We became best friend. We tried to take some sibling pictures together, but our first attempts did not succeed. Mom was nice enough to say that it’s ok if we couldn’t get any sibling portraits, but from the bottom of my heart, I knew how important these memories would be for Mom.

So I moved on to work with her precious newborn girl. I prepared a few cute lace outfits but she fussed whenever I unwrapped her. Mom said that she loved to be swaddled, so we kept her bundled up for the entire session, and she was happy and peacefully asleep. Even with the swaddle, I wanted to show some of her skin, so I deliberately expose her tiny hands and feet. Mom reassured me that Dad loved her feet, so I made sure that I had plenty of images captured with her feet out.

We came back to big sister again and tried some other tricks. With patience and love, she was finally in the mood of taking some pictures together with baby sister. Mom and I were thrilled and relieved! As a mom of two little girls, I understand how often kids can have an off-day. My approach is always gentleness and kindness. I never force my client’s young ones to do anything, but relationship can change the whole atmosphere. As we wrapped up our session, big sister ran and jumped onto me, and gave me a big hug. I kept praising how well she’s been during the session. Her trust and love is my best reward for the day.

To me, photography is more about client relationship (including my little clients!) than merely a business. I focus plenty of time and attention crafting premier, artistic images and providing the best experience to each client. For this reason, my studio takes on very limited photography sessions each month.

Teresa does such an amazing job at her in home studio! She had tons of props and poses to choose from. She took the time to meet with me before to preplan the session, and after to review prints. She was incredibly patient with our little almost threenager when she was being her uncooperative self for sibling photos. I highly recommend her for newborn, or even sibling and family photos! – Andrea L.

It’s March and it’s my favorite time of the year, because I love Spring and the beautiful wild flowers blooming in the field, and it’s also when my birthday is! At my age I don’t really get too excited about birthdays and birthday presents anymore, but I love this time of the year when my family does things to make sure I feel special on this particular calendar day.

I want your newborn baby to feel the same way too! Capturing the first few days after their birth is such a precious memory to be treasured for many years to come. More importantly, capturing you while you are pregnant with your little one is just as special. You beautiful mamas deserve to have beautiful belly pictures too! Therefore, Moms, this month I’m offering you free mini-maternity sessions when you book a newborn session.

A Non-Refundable Retainer and completed Portrait Contract required to confirm booking. Offer ends on March 31st, 2017.

I’m excited as Baby Titus visited my studio for his 3 months old session. As a mom of two, I know it is very important for the older child not to feel left out, especially when they are still trying to get used to their new title “big sister”. I started off the session with Big Sister Katelyn, partly because I wanted her to feel special as well. Mom and Dad have also shared with me how difficult it was for Katelyn to get any professional pictures done in the past, as she cried out of fear whenever standing in front of a camera. They kept reminding me that if I could get one picture of Katelyn without crying, they would be very happy already. I love going above and beyond when it comes to client experience. With a few tricks, I quickly snapped a few pictures of this girl’s authentic expression before I moved on to her little brother’s styled session.

Three-months-old Baby Titus was not able to sit up yet, but I asked Mom for support so he could sit on the miniature fabric chair. Babies at this stage love sitting up with support as this just gives them a new visual perspective, which you could confirm as his entire face lit up. I finished with a few shoots on the beanbag and flokati so baby could lie down on his back comfortably as we played peek-a-poo with him

Both parents were thrilled as they viewed their gallery and thanked me again and again for all these beautiful pictures. My favorite one is their family picture – it’s a new stage and a new page of their life. They are going to face many challenges and sleepless nights, but there will also be many giggles, hugs, kisses, and just good memory. Meeting this family and their baby & child just reminded me of my passion in photography. It’s always about your family and I’m here to capture different stages in prints, to be treasured for many years to come.
