About Theresa and AngelStorms Photography

How am I different from my competition? I’m not above my competition, I just view things in this world differently. I do photography because it saved my life and changed how I view life. It is emotional and personal for me. Every time I pick up my camera that is my thought, and my next thought is that I can shoot something, create something, capture something that makes a change or means something for someone else. Taking the time to learn each person’s hopes and happiness, makes me feel like I can capture any memory that they could cherish for years to come.

Thank you for every experience.   - Theresa

When my assistant asked me to write an About Me Section, I wasn’t really sure where to start or what to say. What do people want to know about me? I’ve been married 25+ years to a man who keeps me on my toes and keeps me laughing. I am the mother to 3 beautiful daughters. I have a mini zoo with 1 dog and 4 cats! I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to Sierra Vista almost 15 years ago when my husband was stationed here through the Army. Within just a couple months of living here, I knew I had found where I wanted to call home for good.

AngelStorms Phography - About Us

Angelstorms Photography started with using a hobby to

experience a personal journey. When an unexpected tragedy

occurred in my life, I needed to turn to photography to deal with

my emotions, and put myself back on the path of calmness and

focus. Capturing memories of people reminded me what was

important in this life. With photography I can quiet my mind, find

calm, find focus, find hope, find strength, find beauty and

everyone needs that to make it through the hard days. 

Ten years ago, I was lucky enough to meet a professional

photographer who offered to mentor me, to teach me what he

had learned through the years. Six years ago, after assisting at a

wedding, he told me that it was time for me to just be me. I wasn’t

sure I was ready to create a business, so I did small jobs for family,

senior portraits, advertising for a sister’s boutique, small jobs.

While visiting family, three years ago, I was offered a major job for commercial photography, and in July 2012 Angelstorms Photography LLC was created. The name is inspired by my youngest two children My Angel and My Storms because they are what put me behind the camera to help me find my focus.
