Tessa is inspired by connection, authenticity, and revealing the beauty in all. She focuses her work on capturing the intrinsic value and true nature of her subjects. Her portraiture aims to reveal aspects of people often obscured by façades. She used to hate having her photograph taken so she understands what it takes to sit for the camera. She approaches her subjects with a genuine warmth that creates space for her clients to be at home in themselves.
Tessa is also a huge champion of small businesses. The passion, dedication, and vulnerability required to create and sustain a small business resonates deeply within her. She aims to consciously connect with owners in order to understand a business’ brand and creatively communicate its uniqueness and value.
