Welcome to Sommer Days Photography, my name is Teri Sommer . I am a simple girl, learning daily to be comfortable in my own skin. I love God, my family and I have loved photography and pictures for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are pouring over the boxes of family photographs, being enthralled with the images and imagining the details of the stories they told. Somehow those images frozen in time made me feel connected, and like I belonged to a bigger story, and that is a feeling I cherish and love to share with others.
I have put my love of capturing people and their stories to practice by documenting my own family over the years. I began to seriously pursue developing my skills through more specialized training and instruction in 2012. After a brief stint in pursuing my love of photography as a portrait photographer, I realized it is just not feasible with the stage of life I’m in at this time. The other roles I fill in my daily life just require too much of me to add portrait photographer/business woman to the list. However, I have decided to keep this website and blog open as a way to continue to share my art and my passion for photography. I want to continue to develop my craft and skill and need a place to share that journey, and I hope you will join me.
Every time I pick up my camera I see God growing my ability to see with His Creator eye. It is my purpose and wish that the art I create, reflects and points back to the One who I believe created it all. I find joy behind the lens, and love capturing the stories I see in my day-to-day life. Every photo I post carries a little piece of my heart in it.
To all who have supported me and encouraged me in this journey, thank you. I hope you will continue to travel with me. I love hearing from you so don’t be a stranger, feel free to post a comment, and thanks for stopping by!
