IN HER OWN WORDS:

I got online to look around and as soon as I saw Theresa’s pictures and how amazing they were I knew she was going to be the one!

There are no words to explain how truly amazing my experience was. Theresa was so uplifting and made me feel beautiful in front of the camera! My absolute favorite part was how I didn’t even feel like I was taking pictures at times, we were having so much fun!

It was such an amazing experience; I would not have changed a single thing! She will capture every quirk possible of yours to remember your entire life. Theresa Marie does so much more than just take pictures, she captures your inner and outer beauty! She taught to be my own kind of beautiful!

IN HER OWN WORDS:
“For years, I have envisioned my senior photos and upon seeing Theresa Marie’s work instantly knew that I wanted her as my senior photographer! Before discovering Theresa Marie, I worried that my senior photos would appear stuffy or look unnatural. However, as soon as I saw Theresa Marie’s work, my worries disappeared! I chose Theresa Marie because her photos seemed to capture personality and happiness. I also loved Theresa Marie’s use of beautiful outdoor settings and how she makes each picture unique!

The experience was even better than I could have imagined and it exceeded all of my expectations! Theresa Marie’s enthusiasm was infectious and made me even more excited for my shoot. She is the sweetest person ever and made me feel super special!

While I loved the reveal of the images, my favorite part of the experience was the shoot, especially on location at the beach. While I am usually hesitant to have my picture taken, Theresa Marie made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and the entire shoot was so much fun! The day was an absolute blast and was a great way to start my senior year! It’s a day I’ll never forget!

When I first saw my images I was in awe! My images were everything I imagined and more! I couldn’t stop smiling! Theresa Marie is so talented and really captured my personality in each picture–I will cherish them forever!

IN HER OWN WORDS:

“I wanted a photographer that would capture me in a way that was timeless, not cheesy like a lot of senior pictures are. I found Theresa through google and did some researching and fell in love with her style. After talking with her on the phone I knew I could trust her to give me a perfect senior shoot.

It was an awesome experience. I knew I didn’t need to stress because I was in good hands! My favorite part was getting my makeup done and planning the shoot because we could just laugh and get excited for what was to come! At my reveal I was truly blown away…I felt beautiful!! I love my pictures so much.

I am so grateful that I found Theresa. She gave me such a unique senior experience and it was truly the cherry on top of my final months as a senior! Not only does she do beautiful work, but she makes you feel so special. Everything Theresa does is done with care and detail in mind. If I were to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing!!

Theresa doesn’t just take pictures, edit them, and give you your order. She makes it a whole experience. From her Snapchat stories to her adorable ‘Pink Starburst’ notes, she makes you feel so special. She is the most detail-oriented person I’ve met and I feel like I can honestly call her a friend. My pictures are everything I could have dreamed of and more. She captured the essence of who I am. Theresa’s style is so tasteful and I know I will love these pictures until I’m 80!”

Lindsey :: Plant City Senior Class of 2015

Meet Lindsey who is a 2015 graduate from Plant City High school…

IN HER OWN WORDS:
“My family and I didn’t have any hesitations with senior pictures because we knew it was something we really wanted to do before I graduate. We felt that it was important to have proffesional pictures done during such a big part of my life so that we could look back on them. I chose Theresa Marie because my friend actually saw her online and once I stalked her site I fell in love with the way she captures people. I really liked her whole style that she had and I felt like I could connect with her.

My overall experience with Theresa Marie was excellent and I would recommend her to anybody that wants to get senior pictures done! I loved how comfortable she made me feel from all of the sweet treats she had to the gift bag I got at the end. I’m not a person who likes to take pictures all of the time because I’ve always felt that I’m not that photogenic but once we started she had me loosen up with her silly sense of humor and corny jokes which helped me a lot plus my best friend, Megan was there to make weird faces in the background. I loved getting the chance to have airbrushed makeup done because I’ve never done it before and because it looked amazing!

It’s hard to say what my favorite part was because the whole process was pretty fun but I took some pictures with my best friend who is going to UF while I’m going FSU and that was really special since we got to capture moments together before we have to go our separate ways even though we could never really be separated.

Also I loved seeing my pictures with my mom and seeing her reactions as I sat back and ate some popcorn courtesy of Theresa! When I first saw my images I was very surprised and overwhelmed because they all were so nicely done thanks to Theresa and I felt very special in that moment! It’s not every day that you watch a video that is all about you.

Theresa’s jokes and comforting sayings made me feel at ease while taking pictures since I was a little tense at first. Towards the end of the shoot we were all laughing and Theresa made me feel like a princess with the way she had all of these special things all ready for me. I was not expecting to be treated like a queen but that’s how Theresa will make you feel. She does all of these little extra things that most people maybe wouldn’t do but they make you feel special.

I’m so thankful to have such a sweet and caring photographer like her and I will always remember and cherrish the moments we had while capturing my senior pictures! Theresa Marie is awesome and you would be lucky to have her as your photographer for senior pictures!”

my role models are:
My parents because they are both very strong and have taught me everything I know. They have always done whats best for me and I hope to be a parent that is as good as them.

Tiffany :: East Lake Senior Class of 2015

Meet Tiffany who graduated from East Lake High School…


IN HER OWN WORDS:
“I was hesitant about the entire senior photoshoot itself. I’ve never really been good in front of a camera because I don’t know what to do with myself. My family and I also knew how pricey senior photos could be, which made us even more hesitant. We chose Theresa Marie because we fell in love with her work. Her ability to capture all kinds of personalities showed through the beautiful photos featured on her website.

My overall experience with Theresa Marie was just as amazing as her! She made me feel so comfortable and genuinely good about myself. Theresa does a great job at bringing out the best in people and it shows in the photos! My favorite part was the actual shoot because I felt like a model for the day. It was definitely an experience to remember.

When I first saw my images I fell in love with them. They were so perfect, and Theresa did a fabulous job at capturing my true colors!

I wouldn’t have change a single thing about my experience. Everything was perfect! From the preparation for the shoot to the very end, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I would recommend Theresa Marie to any senior! She is amazing at what she does and is such a sweet person! Theresa truly cares for her clients and it shows through every photo she captures of them! I can’t thank her enough for the amazing experience & photos!! Choose Theresa Marie & you’ll fall in love with your senior experience just like I did! You won’t regret it!! :)”

IN HER OWN WORDS:
“I’d always wanted my pictures done by the water and my family was planning a trip to Clearwater, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get my senior pictures done. I started looking up different photographers in the Tampa and Clearwater area and I came across Theresa Marie. I’m so glad i did because I instantly fell in love with all of her images. I could really tell that she loves what she does and that she genuinely cares for her seniors.

My photo shoot could not have gone any better. I was so excited and Theresa Marie made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera. I felt like a superstar and that’s how you should feel. Oh my gosh, when I saw my images I was speechless! I loved every single one she showed me, they were better than I ever imagined they would be.

Modern-Senior-Photography-Tampa-001.jpg

IN HER OWN WORDS:
“Most of the time I feel awkward having people take pictures of me and posing for someone so I was kind of nervous. We chose Theresa Marie because the photos she does are beautiful and we fell in love!

Theresa Marie made me feel very comfortable! It was a lot of fun, my favorite part was going in the water and posing on the beach because I love the beach and I was excited to take pictures somewhere that I felt embodied my persona.”

When I first saw my images, I was astonished! I knew Theresa took great photos but it’s so different seeing them when they’re pictures of you. I was amazed at how beautiful they looked. Would I recommend Theresa Marie to other seniors? OH MY GOD YES! She is so funny and makes you feel so comfortable when she’s photographing you. She makes the whole thing feel natural and fun.”

CHELSEA’S MOM, LAURA SAID:
“I didn’t want her pictures to look like everyone else’s. I wanted her to have a unique experience and with someone who took it seriously.

It was amazing from start to finish. So professional but 100% fun and we could have stayed for hours more. My favorite part was seeing the look of happiness on Chelsea’s face. She’s been through so much in the last few years and having her photos finished at the beach was something she always wanted to do for her senior pictures. She loved it and I loved watching her love it.  

When I first saw Chelsea’s images I gasped and I think I may have squealed..haha. They were even better than I had hoped for.

I would recommend Theresa Marie to other seniors in a heartbeat. You get what you pay for. If you are looking to do something amazing and have something to treasure for the rest of your life, call Theresa Marie!

Working with Theresa Marie was the best choice we could have made. She was so much fun and gave us the most professional photos. Choosing which amazing products to get based on the images she took was the best part. She is worth every penny and I couldn’t recommend her any higher!”

Lindsay | Braulio Alonso High School Class of 2014

Meet Lindsay (and her beautiful horse, Cookie) who will be graduating with the 2014 Senior Class at Braulio Alonso High School in Tampa…

“My grandpa is also a photographer and normally takes all of our family pictures, so we were having trouble figuring out just how to choose the perfect photographer. Two of my friends had their senior pictures taken by Theresa Marie and their pictures were stunning! On top of that they could not stop talking about what a wonderful person she is, so that ultimately did us in!

My experience was more than I could have hoped for! I had emailed back forth with and spoken to Theresa Marie multiple times on the phone so I knew she was going to be fantastic! My expectations were exceeded when I met her. I was immediately comfortable around her and felt as if I had known her for years!

My mom and I both cried when we saw the pictures! I had been worried that I wouldnt recognize who I was when I saw them but Theresa Marie doesn’t cover up who you are, she just makes you look like the best version of yourself.

I will for sure be recommending Theresa Marie to people. She connects with her clients on a whole different level and makes herself part of an exciting day during senior year! When I look back on my senior year I know the day of my photo shoot will forever stick out in my mind.”

Theresa Marie has a true talent for bringing out the inner beauty of her clients in her images. I was pretty nervous to have 2 hours of focus just on me in front of a camera, but once we got started I felt like I was just hanging out with a friend and it was a blast!

I had one of her “skinny books” displayed at my graduation party and people were in awe. They wanted to know where I went and if I was a model!

IN HER OWN WORDS:

“I chose Theresa Marie because I saw her work online through some other friends and absolutely fell in love with her work. I had heard that she was so easy to get along with and genuinely cared about her clients.

I could not have asked for a better experience with Theresa Marie! From the second she called me on the phone even still after my session was over, every time you talk to her you can tell she cares about you. It isn’t just her job, it is what she loves to do and it definitely shows that through her work. Having a not so great experience with senior pictures before I found Theresa Marie, finding her was a miracle. She doesn’t just do her job because she has to, she does it because she loves to. She makes you feel so comfortable and is always making you laugh and have a great time.

Oh my gosh! Just with the sneak peek I knew my pictures were going to be amazing. My photos were everything I could have dreamed of and more! Everything was perfect!

You will have an amazing time with Theresa Marie. She doesn’t just take pictures to take pictures. She takes pictures because that’s what she loves to do. She actually cares about all her clients and doesn’t just blow them off. She will make anyone’s dream about their senior pictures come true.

Thank you for making my senior picture experience everything I could have asked for and more!”
