Thanks so much for checking out my site. My name is Theresa, and I’ve been a professional photographer for 14 years, and an unprofessional photographer many years before that.

In 2015 I opened my home studio, and now my primary focus is high school senior photography, as well as professional headshots, fashion photography.
