Hi there. I’m Teresa, the face behind Tiaras & Tantrums.

And I believe in doing what you love and loving what you do.

Some people think that Tiaras & Tantrums is all about photography. And it is… to a point. But a lot of people can’t see what’s behind the photography: self discovery, love, family, a homeschooling mom . . .

Behind every photo and every recipe or review for that matter on this blog, is a lifestyle photographer, a homeschooling momma, a home cook, and a social media mom. If you could take a peek into the creation of each of my posts, you would discover hours of photo editing, some design work, and overcoming writer’s block because I have no less than 25 interruptions every hour!

There is a lot of time and creativity that goes into creating a blog post. I have to set up photo shoots, develop the settings and photograph the shoot. I need to do this in order for my photos to come across as creative enough to catch your eye in a moment. I also want you to enjoy them enough that you will come back and visit again.


I want you to fall in love with family when you're here visiting. I have grown so much over the past 11 years of blogging. I want you to see that and to remember. For me, this blog is a journey and it's about creating something new within myself everyday.

I'm a happy, homeschooling mom! We live in the suburbs of Chicago and my husband is a big executive at some fancy communications corporation (which is where we met). My children are 16, 14 and 11 and are super awesome (they do not pay me to say that). Everyone is super cooperative of my crazy, busy schedule and I couldn't do it without all their help . . . and posing for me!


On behalf of all five of us, I want to thank you for stopping by Tiaras & Tantrums! We hope you’ll stay a while and make us a part of your day… preferably the photographing part!.
