Collaborations

Hey, small businesses!

One of my favorite ventures so far with photography has been doing collaborations with small businesses. I have worked with a number of small businesses and been able to trade services; they have given me products, and I have been able to take a variety of pictures for them.

What I do…

Most of my products have been for my kids’ rooms, but I have even been able to get gifts for clients and my husband! I know that quality photos for small businesses can be hard to fit into a small business budget, so I love to help with flat lays, even though my strength are really with the lifestyle photos of the products. The Let’s Collab Official Facebook group has been a great way for me to network with these artisans!

Even though I have enjoyed working with artisans from across the country, I would love to work more with local artisans and small business owners. So if you are the DC area and you are a maker, please let me know! We have made Southern Maryland home, and I would love to promote and help out small businesses near me. I am open to trades, so shoot me an email at teresa@tcjdesign.com if you would like to inquire about working together!


  • "We hired Teresa for a newborn photo shoot after seeing her previous work in her portfolio. She was professional and kind, and she always managed to provide a relaxing environment. We received our photos in a timely manner, and communication was easy. Teresa delivered on every image! She was able to capture exactly what we were hoping for. We then hired Teresa for the Milestone package. She captured photos of our daughter during her first year that otherwise may have become distant memories. We love looking back at the photos and seeing how much our sweet girl has grown!"
