Portrait photography thats not stuffy and allows you to be the wild and free spirit that you are. I dont believe in perfection. I dont believe in matching clothes. I dont believe in cheesy smiles at the camera. That's not what you are going to get here.
These sessions are about having fun and showing off your vulnerable side. This is a time for you to let your guards down and create art with me.
Because all of lives journeys are worth documenting
We believe that the best portraits come from a collaboration between the photographer and the subject. That's why we take the time to get to know you, your personality, and your story. We'll work with you to create a setting that reflects your style and personality, and we'll guide you through the entire process, from wardrobe selection to posing.
Our goal is to create portraits that tell a story, and capture the true essence of who you are. We believe that portraits should be more than just pretty pictures, but a reflection of your unique personality and style. That's why we focus on creating a comfortable and relaxed environment that allows you to be yourself, and lets your true self shine through.
If you're looking for story-driven portrait photography in San Diego, look no further. I'm dedicated to creating portraits that are more than just pictures, but a reflection of your personality and style. Let's work together to tell your story through the art of photography.

Probably the most asked question, and truly no one is that awkward. It's all in your head, I promise! However, I got your back with a few tips and tricks that will make the experience for you so easy and fun. To be honest tho, awkward moments ALWAYS make for good photos.
WE ARE SO AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! CAN YOU HELP US?
Documentary Family Photos are a slice of what your daily life is actually like. A raw portrait of what it means to be a member of your family. Lifestyle is more of a staged moment on location, or at home.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFESTYLE & DFP?
My process is raw and unguarded. Nothing is ever planned out or constricted to the cookie-cutter idea of what photography should be. I follow the noise, the laughter, the tears and all the quiet moments in-between. Every session is a different journey or adventure, and thats what makes these mini-sessions so special. You will never have the same photographs as another client. Your pictures are truly unique to you.
If you're looking for a photographer who creates thoughtful images, that show real, raw emotions, then you've found the one.

We had the best experience working with Teresa! She went above and beyond what most photographers would do. We were originally drawn to her more artistic photos, but Teresa does it all...we are so happy with the results. We'd highly recommend her for any of your photo needs and events. THANK YOU, TERESA!
