ABOUT

Hello! I’m Terra. Let me tell you a little bit about myself…

I live in Portland with my husband Joe and our cat Elvis. I am thankful every day that I get to do something I love as a full time career. Other things that I love: road trips, camping, croquet, dancing, large bodies of water, lobsters, flannels, champagne, accordions, the color yellow, and adventures! Life is good.

I received my BFA in Photography in 2009, but photography has been a big part of my life since I was a small child. I have been referred to as “the memory girl” for as long as I can remember. I was always the one with a camera, capturing and documenting the moments. I love that a photograph is a window to the past and that it allows something to keep on existing, even after it’s gone.

Photographing people is awesome because they are always different and changing. I am blessed to get to meet so many new people and to hear their stories. I strive to capture moments authentically but cleverly, using light, color and composition to make things compelling and beautiful. I try to be as candid as possible, while being sensitive to each individual person and their level of comfort in front of the camera.

What can I do for you? I'm available locally and nationally. I love to travel, so don't be shy in asking about a destination event. Wedding photography packages begin at $2200 and elopements begin at $1500. Please inquire on my contact page for current pricing.
