Have you ever heard me tell that story during a shoot?  The one where I tell you what happened when I once squatted down to take a picture during a senior portrait shoot?  You know, the story I tell you to try and get a good laugh out of you while we’re taking pictures?  Well bless her heart, that was during Erica’s Senior Portrait session with me several years ago.  And if you don’t know what that story is . . . well, you will. Erica is the My Friend Teresa Photography Studio Manager.  During our peak senior portrait season she keeps the wheels turning for all of the small (and big!) behind the scenes details.

Erica is a rising senior at Wake Forest University with a passion for photography.  She serves as the photography editor for the Wake Forest yearbook and has worked hard to develop her skills under the direction of two photography mentors.  A portrait photographer at heart, she takes pictures for family, friends and just for fun. In her spare time, Erica enjoys water skiing at the lake, watching reruns of Gilmore Girls and hanging out with her cat, Amelia.  She is enthusiastic about being part of the My Friend Teresa Photography team.

I wouldn’t have survived the last two years without him and if you’ve been a client in the last two years then chances are you know why.  Robert is the My Friend Teresa Photography Studio Assistant. When it comes to on-location shoots, he is a critical part of keeping the many moving pieces of a shoot going. He handles my lighting equipment, switches out lenses, carries tripods and client’s personal belongings and occasionally just keeps me from getting lost.

Robert is a man destined for big things.  In recognition of his many talents he was a semi-finalist for the Park scholarship at NCSU which he will be attending in the Fall.  He is an Eagle Scout, a self-professed video-production guy, and farm kid.  When he is not assisting with shoots he is helping at the family farm – planting cotton, harvesting crops, or helping kids navigate the corn maze during pumpkin season.  He hopes to major in computer science and applied math.
