teri bocko, kneeling and laughing

Long ago, I fell in love with the ability to capture tangible mementos of places I had been and things I had seen. My old photos are memories and reminders but also remarkable pieces of me, simple tokens that spark wonder and joy.

My approach to photography is grounded in this idea of carefully and beautifully preserving treasured moments that would otherwise be lost. I work carefully to craft light, surroundings, movement and mood to tell your most authentic story. My background in the performing arts helps me naturally anticipate and capture stories. I blend photojournalism with fine art to create collections that will feel uniquely truthful and, hopefully, incredibly special.

This is my life's work.

I would the love opportunity to create something you will cherish.
