Teresa O'Brien Photography bio picture
  • Hello + Welcome!

    I call hilly San Francisco home with my husband and wild child. I like wild, so I'd have it no other way. When I am not with my boys, I love to be out capturing life - people - in a fun and real way. It is work, but I get to laugh, play, cheer, and get excited … a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit my journal! Please make sure to leave a comment because I'd love to hear from you. It definitely makes my day.

    Hope we connect some day soon!

Large Families

I grew up in a family of six, so large families have a special place in my heart. And like this family, I was the only girl. AND I too had a black and white dog!

I met Katie at the UNITED photography conference last year in Santa Barbara and immediately liked her. Then I got to meet her family this summer. Such fun kids, each with their unique personalities, spanning from 8 years to 15 years old. I don’t know how these parents do it, but they sure are doing something right!

Katie is a great photographer based in Portland, Oregon, so you can imagine how flattered I was when Katie contacted me to photograph her family.  If you are in Portland, make sure to check her out, especially her work with high school seniors.

I love kids’ reactions when parents hug or kiss.

Stella is definitely the family dog, proudly watching over her peeps.

I guess with four kids you don’t get much alone time.  😉

Who needs to buy toys when you can use sticks and kelp for outdoor play?
