Meet tera

“Photographer, author, creative and autism advocate - those are just a couple of the many hats I wear on any given day. I’ve been a natural light photographer since 2005 and a mom longer than that. Autism has been a part of our family’s journey and my professional life as well.

My many hats converged when I photographed, wrote and self-published “Faces of Autism” in 2017. It’s what I’m most proud of these days and it led me to become a LEND Fellow at the University of Minnesota for the 2018-19 school year. I am excited to continue to hone my leadership and advocacy skills through this amazing program.

And now, I’m still incorporating my many passions and talents by speaking about autism admiration, sharing my story, mentoring parents, photographing families and advocating for children with autism.

My life’s purpose is to reveal the beauty. And that carries through whether I’m photographing families or talking about the light inside a child with autism or photographing the wonders of nature all around us.

I look forward to working with you!”
