About Tess


My name is Tess and I live in Western Pennsylvania where I am a wife and also a  mom (to two humans and two dogs). 

Some fun facts about me: 

I love animals! Surprise! 

The picture on the homepage is a photograph of my grandmother with her beloved dog she grew up with beside a photograph of me with my dog Wesson. How amazing is it that these photos were taken decades apart but the dogs are staring right at each other? This photo means the world to me because I truly believe in a purpose for our passions in life. This photograph is a reminder of how deep rooted my love for animals is. 

I have traveled all over the world for my past career and out of all of the places I have been, my back yard is still my favorite <3

I could eat Chinese food and doughnuts every single day of my life and not get sick of either one. 

I have a bachelor's degree in Special Education and a master's degree in university advising.

I have been obsessed with accessorizing since I was a little girl. I am talking assortments of headbands and scrunchies, giraffe earrings, elephant rings, you name it, I loved, and still do, using accessories to express myself <3

I love reading which is one of the reasons I love photography so much. I get to tell stories with pictures! 

I also love to run and explore the outdoors. So don't be surprised if I have your photo session in a fun outdoorsy location where we can capture that beautiful natural light!
