About Me

Teri Swenson

Born and raised in Iowa, I grew up on a farm, where I developed a love for quiet moments and the outdoors. I met my husband there. We went from high school sweethearts to attending college in central Iowa; he at Iowa State and myself at Drake University. Before long, we started down career paths and began building our family. We have four children: Connor, Evan, Griffin and Isla. They are my inspiration. A desire to hold on to what seems to be fleeting moments of infancy and childhood fueled my passion for photography. I love capturing their little expressions, their tiny hands, those everyday moments of childhood, before it all slips away. As a photographer, I’m captivated by light and connection. I prefer more natural or lifestyle imagery over anything posed, but also have a love for portrait photography. Outside of photography, you’ll find me on a soccer field somewhere, with a coffee in both hands, cheering on one of my littles much too loud.
