In her own words:
Hello and welcome to the lifeXpressions blog, aptly named, innerXpressions! I’m going to assume if you clicked this link you want to know a little bit about me. My name is Terrilyn, I am a mother of three gorgeous children, a wife to one very handsome man, and the owner of lifeXpressions photography, LLC. In other words, I’m one busy lady! That’s alright, I’m the type of person that needs to be busy. I thrive on chaos, good thing because my children LOVE to create chaos.
I’m a firm believe in preserving memories. Having lost my father at a young age I understand all too well the importance of preserving your memories for future generations. Time passes so quickly. We go through our lives day to day never realizing that it could all be over in the blink of an eye.
I’ve enjoyed photography since I was a little girl, I took my first class on photography as a teenager and continued to explore my passion through the years with my own family and friends. I’m also an avid scrapbooker, the pictures and the journaling come together to create fantastic heirlooms for my children. They just love to sit down and flip through the big pages of their books.
I am quite honored to have had both my scrapbooking pages and my photos published in several books and national magazines. It wasn’t until 2004 that I decided to turn my passion into my career, this is when lifeXpressions came to be. Now I am blessed to have met so many wonderful families and to be given the opportunity to capture their precious memories through my camera lens.
