I am a lifestyle photographer specializing in portraiture and wedding photography, seeking to create emotional and dynamic images that will be cherished for years to come. I am drawn to authentic, unrefined lifestyle compositions with natural light, so my work is often shot on location with little to no posing. 

I expect and love that each session evolves into something unique and special. 

I have always loved photographs and the emotions they make you feel.  Becoming a mother has given me a strong urgency to capture all the magical moments in life, big or small, perfect or imperfect, every detail, every joy. The connections we can feel, but don’t always see.

I am a wife and a mother.  We have three delightful and beautiful daughters who are first, my children, yes, but second, built-in models for this photographer’s amusement. I’m a home-grown Montanan and am in constant awe of this gorgeous country, and I’m so thankful to have it as my backdrop. I spend a lot of time outdoors, hiking, sightseeing and spending time in our rivers and lakes


“Tessa did my engagement and wedding photos and I cannot recommend her highly enough. The woman worked through a small blizzard to make sure our wedding photos were flawless.”
