Artist: Terrie Jacobson

It is so fulfilling to create a unique picture that not only shows beauty but evokes a sense of wonder and mystery. As a self-taught photographer who constantly seeks the artist within, I so enjoy the artistry that is inherent in photography. My passion for photography started with nature and wildlife and expanded to portrait, pet, and real estate photography. To satisfy my creative aspirations, I have also been developing an artistic look with nature and wildlife images.


Family Photo Sessions:

As a family portrait photographer, I strive to promote the feelings of family connections rather than stiff posed images. The portrait session will be all about you and what makes your family special. Capturing those connections that are unique to your family and providing keepsakes of moments in time, that so quickly, slip away over the years.  


If you are open for something new, fantasy and creative images are now offered. Children all have fantasies which can be brought to life by creatively combining nature and wildlife images from TJ’s Photo-Art and your children’s images captured in the photo session.  


It’s all about you seniors! I strive for you to have a photo shoot that is uniquely you and which portrays your own creative flair to develop images that are all you!  The session is all about having fun and making a memory of this pivotal time in your life.

Pet Photography:

Pet photography goes hand in hand with my love for wildlife. Capturing a beloved pet’s personality is a goal of mine. ­­ Pets are a member of the family and are with us for such a short time.  As a keepsake, images from a session can be used to develop an “over the rainbow”, or heavenly feel as a memorial for the family, or to help children cope with the loss of a pet.
