At age 13, Teresa “T” Nora bought a Kodak Instamatic camera using money squirreled away from babysitting jobs. The pictures she snapped with that camera were just the beginning of her love affair with photography. Nearly two decades later, she's mastered the technical aspects of picture-taking, yet maintains a focus on its artistic elements.
Today, Nora shares her gift with the world through Fotos by T: the eclectic photography studio she operates out of San Jose filled with ambiance, artful props, and sexy energy. Within this studio and at on-location sites throughout the area, she and her all-woman team snap publication-worthy portraits that capture both the sexy, sensual, artful image and the essence of the subject's personality. Custom and private sexy shoots are diverse, with themes ranging from leather-and-lace sessions, sexy-fetish, or turn-of-the-century Victorian. These are ideal for all customers looking for a "sexy boost," from brides to be and same-sex partners to curvy girls and grandmothers.
She also leaves the studio to conduct on-location photo shoots, including wedding shoots where she captures candid portraits of brides, grooms, and wedding crashers. All sessions include an in-person or phone design consultation, pre-shoot prepping in the beauty bar, and a post-session viewing to review the images.
