About Teressa jane Mackey

san antonio newborn photographer

I've had a camera in my hands since I graduated high school, but my work truly took on a deeper meaning when I became a mother. I knew I wanted to soak in every milestone of my babies with beautiful photographs, but I quickly realized that as a mom, I was taking photos and was rarely IN the photo. Now, four babies in, my most treasured memories are the photos with ME in the frame, and my heart for this work is to do the same for you and your family.

In my world, mamas deserve beautiful images WITH their babies, not just of their little ones. That's the heart behind Teressa Jane Photography,

what capturing motherhood means to me

My heart is to give you the gift of lasting memories of your children’s milestones with their mama IN the frame. In your session, I want to highlight you in each season and stage as your child grows, and in front of my camera, you'll feel known and seen, loved and cherished.

While we'll certainly capture treasured images of your family and your littlest loves, it's my calling to photograph the natural, intimate interactions between mother and child. During your session, I work hard to ensure that you'll feel a calming sense of ease because every detail, from the lifestyle setting to your wardrobe, has been carefully crafted with you in mind.

You're beautifully busy caring for everyone; let me care for you and yours in this season by creating timeless and peaceful images of your biggest moments.

A love letter to moms

let's capture your greatest gifts


My approach to capturing mamas and their littles is to simply photograph the natural interactions between you and your littlest loves, so soak up those snuggles or sing a song, and I'll be there to document it all.


When I'm not photographing your motherhood journey, you can find me exploring and RVing with my husband and our four littles. When I say that I know how important it is to capture milestones in photos along the way, I truly mean it.


In another life, I'd be a midwife or a doula. I cherish the time I spend loving on new moms and making them feel special and seen in front of my camera at such a memorable time in their lives.

This life allows me to do just that on a schedule that works for me and my family, and that's a gift that I don't take for granted. It's truly my joy to capture yours.


I'm in love with all things Rifle Paper Co.

Floral prints have my heart forever, and you'll see no shortage of them inside my Client Closet.


I've called Texas home all of my life, and selecting the right location and beautiful wardrobe options from my Client Closet for your session is one of my superpowers.
