Tiffany Teso brings over twenty years’ experience in photography and film making to Western North Carolina. A resident of Brevard, NC, her lifelong passion for art is reflected in her soulful photography. She possesses a unique ability to capture the spirit of a couple (newly engaged or celebrating their 50th), children playing in a field, and even pets. “Kids, cats, and dogs sit next to me,” Tiffany muses. Her maternity photographs are museum-worthy!
