Teresa Peterson?Who's

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit my page. My name is Teresa Peterson. I'm a wife and mother of three boundless boys and one charismatic, spirited little girl (Evelyn Leigh). We live in the Kansas City area.

I'd have to say my interest in photography began when I received my first "real" camera as a wedding gift from my amazingly, insightful husband. About two years later and after only occasional use of the camera, I decided that I would use it to document every month of my little girl's growth. It was then that I fell in love with photography!



"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

~A. Siskind

I am moved by images that convey genuine emotion and I strive to create lasting memories for my clients. I hope that they will look back at the photos and remember that day. I want to help preserve the memories and details...a mother's loving touch, a child's sweet embrace, giggles between siblings, a father's strong hand.

I am most passionate about photographing children and families. I prefer more candid settings, but do realize there is the need for more formal, posed shots as well. So, I do try to incorporate some posing into my sessions. I think my style of photography can be described as artistic portraiture and lifestyle photography.

I like to get to know my clients and create a long, lasting relationship. I love watching your children grow from year to year. This is something that I truly enjoy and am passionate about doing. I am thankful to all my clients for trusting me to document their lives and preserve these precious memories.
