Like many moms, photography became an interest after my first child was born. In 2011, I started Teresa Hammer Photography. God has given me this gift and has made my business what it is. I am blessed by the doors He has opened for me to pursue this love. I am thankful for the family and friends who have believed in me and encouraged me.

In the studio or at a location of your choice,  I love to see God’s vision for your family, in all stages of life. I love to capture the connections between parents and children, engaged couples, or the fresh new life a baby brings. I like to have fun at every photo session and get the standard posed shots as well.

My husband, Joe Jr, and I have lived in the Shannon and Lanark area for most of our lives. We love the history and beauty in Carroll County. There is a large sense of community. You know your neighbors and everyone helps out.

I offer photo shoots for weddings, maternity, engagements, seniors, children/newborn, families, and more. I also sell nature photographs. I’ve been selling my work for 3 years now and have been doing photography for 7 years. I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. So it just comes naturally to me and I couldn’t be happier doing anything else.

I love trying to be creative and I never want to stop learning. I don’t want people to come to me because I’m cheaper or because I’m “good at it”. I want them to come because they love my work!

I don’t just want to get a few shots in and call it good. Photography is an art to me and I believe it should be treated as such. when I take them, I want you to shine in the photos and want people to see who you really are when they view them.

I think anyone can be a potential customer, especially people interested in my nature photos. I am willing to do a photo shoot of just about anything, as long as it is family oriented. The greatest challenge of operating this businesses is that I still don’t have an official logo. I can’t decide on what I want to do for one.

I grew up around here and have lived in the area all my life. When I first got married, we lived in Freeport, but moved back. I love the rolling hills, the fields in the fall with all the bright colors, and I love looking at the old buildings and houses.
