ABOUT TESSA

I have been photographing people for almost 15 years! My favorite photo subjects are families, newborns, & seniors! I enjoy finding unique and creative ways to bring out personalities in a portrait. Before the session day, I gather as much info as I can about who I'll be photographing! For me, creative artistry begins here. After I get to know my subjects we start customizing and creating a one of a kind photo experience for them. Most of my sessions consist of laughing and praising how beautiful & blessed my subjects are!

Sackett Photography was a part time venture that turned full time upon my graduation in May of 2008. I graduated from Hawkeye Community College with a degree in Professional Photography majoring in Portrait Photography. From demand of friends and family, the word of mouth advertising that came from those first sessions led to officially starting my business after completing the photography program at Hawkeye. Sackett Photography is a full service studio based out of our home in Jesup.

When I'm not taking photos I enjoy spending time with my husband, Nick, adorable sons, Oscar, Oliver (Ollie), Oxford (Ford) and hanging out with our family and friends. My hobbies include sewing, crafting, prop/antique/junk shopping,decorating, movies, and music. Lastly, my foundation for my business is deeply rooted in my core beliefs in our heavenly father. 

Believe it or not, my biggest prayer is that my business be what GOD wants it to be-nothing more. My prayer and hope is that He brings me the people I need and that need me whatever season of life we are in!! Every year brings more exciting changes and adventures. Each year I'm blessed to get to do what I love and love what I do. I've met some of the most amazing people that I call my "photo family". Since we've started our own family I've realized just how invaluable photography is. I'm so blessed to be able to have this skill at my right hand. The photos of my boys are my "happy place" and every room in our home has became a happy one with their sweet faces on our walls. Our little masterpieces are better than any other piece of art I could buy from a shelf in a store.

I provide many with hopefully a wonderful photo service, but my ultimate service is to the Lord. I hope all "this" is in honor of Him. Doing photography from home has allowed me the best opprotunities to watch my sons grow...and I cherrish that. Hours can sometimes get crazy, but I am thankful for my clients that understand I'm a mom first!

Lastly, I want you to know that I strive to create a once in a lifetime custom experience at every portrait session not a "cookie cutter" one. I want to give you photos that get even sweeter in 40 years. I want to give you photos that will be tangible proof of your legacy.
