Hi! I'm Tessa!


I love life!!!! (and exclamation points) I’m full of happy energy & sarcasm.  I’ve become obsessed with gratefulness - I think it’s a direct link to happiness!  My daily goal is to be grateful and have a good day everyday which is pretty easy because I wake up next to the two cutest puppies in the entire world!!! If you're a dog person ILY already. 

I am so lucky to be obsessed with my job and even more obsessed with my dreamy clients who value me enough to take me on their adventures and have fun with me throughout the entire process!!

My bf and I moved to San Luis Obispo on the central coast of CA 2 yrs ago and I’ve never been happier or more excited about where I live! If you haven't already figured it out my bf Jimmy is a decccccent (aka best I've ever seen, annoyingly talented, low key better than me) filmmaker and it's the best thing ever ever ever to get to work together!

I’m an extra firm believer in livinggggg. For me that means making time to get outside and have fun every single day, puppy hiking, camping, swimming, traveling, playing games, dancing (taking class or just in public to embarrass my bf), playing with my pups (my favorite people ((puppies are people)) in the world) and working with happy, easy going clients! I'm also an XL believer in compassion for humans and furry creatures alike, grace and that there's no such thing as too many plants & no answer for how to keep them all alive LOL. 

If you email me with zero exclamation points I may or may not 100% read it in a monotone voice. I've been known to squeal and silently scream during a shoot when things are going wayyyy to well.  I'm in love with learning about everyone's stories, I feel like my job is like living inside of a chick flick and I'm obsesed - can't wait to learn about yours! xo
