Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
— Thomas Merton

Teresa here. I am the photographer and videographer at Teresa Jean Productions. I use my camera to capture your life moments, and create visual art for you to keep, for life. People often only think to work with a photographer for the big milestones in life (graduations, weddings, births). I want to give you more than a traditional portrait of these moments. I want to help you capture the real life behind these moments - your life.

I first found interest in filming and photography while studying abroad in Brazil for spring break my freshman year of college. It was my first time outside of the USA and I wanted to remember everything (even if it wasn’t captured in the most picture perfect way, see right).

Flash forward to my senior year of college, I began taking clips at random events, birthday parties, graduation dinners, and girls nights in. Time was flying by too fast and I wanted a way to hold on to those cherished moments.

I didn’t just want a photo of me in a graduation cap (although they did turn out AMAZING). I wanted the moments that led up to walking across that stage. I wanted something to look back on that resembled my time in college - something as beautiful, ridiculous, and full of emotion as the past four years (and the crazies show below).

And now, that’s what I want for YOU. I want us to capture your life leading up to, through, and after the “big” moments. I want us to collaborate on capturing your coziest days wildest and adventures. A solo shoot walking through your favorite part of town. A pet-parent shoot by the fire. An engagement celebration at your favorite location. Or a family vacation with the ones you love the most. These are the moments of your story. Let’s capture them, for life.
