Hi, I'm Tessa!
I have always been fascinated by photography & began my photography journey with black & white darkroom photography at a darkroom run by my local parks department. After moving for grad school, I no longer had access to a darkroom and my photography hobby fell by the wayside. Even after purchasing a digital camera, I didn't rediscover my love for photography for several more years. After the birth of my son, I had an excellent model to practice on and decided to pick up my camera again. With the guidance of several good photographer friends, I began taking pictures of friends & their babies. I love documenting life events for people. I particularly love capturing the first few days/weeks of a baby's life and the transformation of a new family.
I am based in Bellingham, WA, about 90 miles north of Seattle and 60 miles south of Vancouver, BC. I'm also frequently in the Portland-Vancouver area, and am happy to book sessions from Vancouver, BC, to Portland, OR and anywhere in between!
