About Me

Hello! I'm Tessie, a Charleston, West Virginia based photographer who craves color, light and authentic moments. I am drawn to documentary and lifestyle photography, which includes various portrait sessions as well as labor & delivery and newborn sessions. My goal is to capture real moments and connections in an artful way. I also specialize in underwater portraits and commercial photography. Underwater has become my passion and I am thrilled to offer these sessions to my clients. 

I love to travel, I only wear high heels when forced, I speak Italian, I can whip up a batch of cookie dough in 5 minutes (which I do much too often), and I hate to shop, unless it's for food or new camera gear.  I have 2 children and a wonderful husband.
