Hi, I am Terree Lorraine Oakwood.

Welcome to my webspace, themomentphoto.com! It is on these pages I offer a look into the types of work I do as a photographer and writer.

From portraits to travel stories and profiles of interesting people and places, I hope you will find inspiration and perhaps a desire to work with me on your next photo project.

When I photograph a client, my aim is to create compelling images for their personal or business narrative. After decades as a professional photographer of many genres including weddings, events, engagements, maternity, and newborn, families, and business lifestyle, I have narrowed my focus to what appeals to me most.


Portraiture has always been my mainstay and still is. I enjoy capturing families looking to create legacy images of their immediate and extended families as well as important milestones such as high school and college senior portraits. 

Business & Lifestyle

Another realm for my photo creativity is working with small businesses to showcase their brand personality, talents, business scope, and products.


Finally, for self-expression I head to the natural world, capturing the daily wonder of life on this amazingly beautiful planet. From the quiet simplicity of backcountry roads to landscapes with exceptional views of the sky and the rising and setting sun to the mountains and out to the sea, I love documenting the beauty and the light in all I witness.

Visual storytelling with my camera, my romantic, poetic nature, and influences from the worlds of art and fashion bring a soulful sense of life to my photography and writing. A picture, a photograph may paint a thousand words, but a thousand words too can create a beautiful picture. It is in this place between the words and the images that I live and every day I am driven with a deep desire to share how I see life unfolding. Please enjoy it all through my lens.

Her youngest, her son Hunter died a few years ago and his loss has left an enormous void. With love of family and friends, Terree makes the most of every moment. "Life is for living" she says and is excited for all that lies ahead but always pauses in gratitude for the life she has already lived and the love that surrounds her and her family.   



“We love you Terree! Thanks for documenting so many moments in my family’s life, wouldn’t want anyone else. You have the most beautiful soul and are so so talented. You know I don’t like my photo taken but I’ll be glad I did these in the years ahead. Can’t wait to see you again”
