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!


Chaos.  Craziness.  Spontaneity.  I love it all honestly.  When I offered our family friends to host a boys sleepover – the boys FIRST ever sleepover –  they were happy to let me be the guinea.  As a kid I loved sleepovers so I was nearly as excited as the boys were.  My husband Tuan, not so much.  He was happy to host and made super yummy pizza … but when the energy was high he preferred to stay on the other side of the house.  Poor guy needed a day of rest after this one.  😉

Anyhow on to the pure crazy wild rule-breaking fun.  These images are a mix of my pro camera and iPhone, depending on what camera I could grab quickly to capture the moment.

By all means, it had to start off with a bit of wrestling….

Homemade jumpy house.  Had to save the neighbors sanity downstairs, so I dragged a mattress into the hallway and let the boys jump until exhaustion set in.


Nothing like a movie to turn kids into zombies.  Had a nice surprise visit from the girl next door.  The three older kids all attended their first preschool year together.  How does that song/saying go?   Make new friends but the old friends are gold….

Spoiling is a definitely a must for friends and sleepovers.  Rule breaking, wild energy, homemade pizza, movie and even homemade ice cream.

The boys woke up early for this…. Sleepover_PERS_20160227_Teresa OBrien Photography-60

I was a little worried that the young one would miss home, but after this treatment, he was planning to move in.

After science, breakfast and reading, the boys decided to plan a secret spy mission.  I think they were plotting an ambush on me.   Sleepover_PERS_20160227_Teresa OBrien Photography-69
