Hi, I’m Theresa! Your Arlington Family Photographer & Newborn Photographer. I’m a wife, a mama of five, a NICU nurse, and obsessed with creating memories full of love and connection. I am the canvas, and you are the color. I want to create loving pieces of artwork that you will treasure forever. I am captivated by emotions, movement, and beautiful light. I want you to have more than a “pretty photograph.” I want you to have the memory from this chapter in your life. I adore laughter, tickles, silliness, and passion that comes from a family, and I look forward to creating these heirlooms for your family.

Arlington Family Photographer & Newborn Photographer

“We had a wonderful photo session with Theresa. We love her style and creativity, and not only did she capture timeless, beautiful moments with our family, she made the session fun and relaxed. She gave us small suggestions that helped put our family at ease and made it more about the moment and who we were as a family. We would love to have her photograph our family again” -AC

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything”
-Aaron Siskind

Just like no two families are alike, neither are my sessions. I want us to have an adventure together. I want to see you splash in the water with your family or maybe hike to a secret location with epic views. I want to see your child bursting with laughter as they are tossed in the air by dad or maybe a quiet moment where your family is snuggled in a blanket calmed by the love you share for each other.

My sessions are more than a posed formal portrait. They are about capturing the intimacy, the imperfection, and the chaos. My sessions focus on those stolen seconds gazing into your partner’s eyes and the joy of your children running freely. I love documenting the tiny details, hair blowing in the wind, every dress spin, texture of your feet in the grass, fingers intertwined, and the warm way you unfold to each other as a family, wrapped in each other’s arms.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
- Paul Caponigro
