I’m Tessa (she/her). Here’s a little bit about me: 

I live on Treaty 6 Territory, more specifically Saskatoon! I have two boys: Everett is seven years old and Tucker is four. We also have a twelve year old Boston Terrier/Pug named Timothy.    

I am a middle years teacher,  and a grad student at the U of S. Most weeks I'm not sure if I'm a full-time teacher and part-time photographer, or a full-time photographer and part-time teacher. Either way, this career mix compliments each other perfectly. As a teacher I'm always scanning the classroom to find students who may need assistance. This skill transfers over to photography, especially in weddings, as I enjoy scanning the crowd to see who is moved by the ceremony or reception speeches! I love those sneaky candid shots. 

Some fun facts about me - I love spin class. I'm pretty open about my mental health journey. I still laugh every time I watch The Office. I am a sucker for an underdog story. I cry at every wedding I go to at least once, and I always wear a black romper. I think dogs are seriously the best.      

My goal has always been to capture authentic moments. I am passionate about nose and eye crinkles from laughing so hard, and I’m equally as passionate about documenting real connection between lovers and families. I do a lot of prompting instead of posing, but I think that makes everything a little more fun! Please have a look around, and don’t hesitate to ask me any questions.

I promise, I’m a great third wheel!
