I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember, and helping you capture your family's memories is my passion.

I have two amazing teenagers, Brady and Elliott, and two crazy dogs, Callie and Annie (or Piggy, as we affectionately refer to her).

I was raised in the DC suburbs of Northern Virginia, and realized my dream of living by the beach when I moved to the Florida panhandle in 2007. A year later I realized my dream of starting my own photography business, and in 2014 I opened the Merriment Photography studio in Navarre.

I take photos & offer ways to showcase your

I'm teresa. photographer, child wrangler, & DAILY beach-GOER.

Meet your new photographer BFF...

With a couple decades of photography experience under my belt, and 14 years running Merriment Photography, I have fine-tuned my sessions to be fun, creative, and easy. 

With young kids we will play games, tell jokes, and be as silly as needed to get those real grins and laughs. With newborns, we can take all the time we need to comfort them in between poses and follow their lead on posing.

My ultimate goal is for you to have wall-worthy photos that you love for years to come.

what photo sessions with me are like...

Of course we will get the shots that grandma loves. You know, the ones with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. But then we will get to the good stuff, the stuff you want to remember - the sloppy kisses your two year old has for his baby sister at her newborn session, or the grins of all the cousins as they let the Gulf waves lap at their feet at your beach session.

Your family is special. Your family is one of a kind. Whether your family is two people or twenty-two people, your story is important. 

My love for family is how I wound up a photographer

all families have a story
