“She captured exactly who my child is… with her camera, Terry Lee sees a child’s authentic, unedited reactions. Her photography captures the special moments and the natural charisma of children~the laughter in their eyes, the familiarity in their smiles, their inner beauty and personality.”

Terry Lee: “This is just a ‘little somethin’ to let you know how much I appreciate the ‘above & beyond’ energy you’ve given to Libby’s photo process. I am so happy you were available to do this job for us. But more than that. I am so impressed with all the personal touches you put into your work. (I wish I had known you with my oldest child not just my youngest!) ; ) The slideshow put to music – awesome! …and the delicious wine & cheese party, well, we will just have to do that part more often! As this card says: ‘When you care, people notice.” – Susane Berger

“Terry Lee photographed our two daughters at the same location we had celebrated our wedding nine years earlier. She captured their essence perfectly. We will always treasure this work of art.”

“Terry Lee photographed each of my three sons close to their second birthdays. She had a great ability to connect with them and captured each of them beautifully. The hand-tinted portraits that Terry Lee created are still my favorite pieces of artwork in my home, even though my sons are now 8, 11, and 14. They are timeless and amazing. I am also thrilled that she included me in some of the photos, as they are precious memories of an earlier phase of motherhood. Choosing Terry Lee to photograph my children was one of the best decisions I made as a mom!”

“Dear Terry Lee, I just wanted to write you and tell you how much I appreciate you taking the wonderful photos of my family for our Christmas card the past couple of years. I can’t tell you how many people complimented us on last years photo and wanted to know who took it. Of course I have given everyone your name and number and told them you are the BEST!!! I was remembering the first year you did our photos on the beach in Narragansett and of course I had waited until the last minute to contact you and it was December. You were such a trooper going with all of us to the beach to take those beautiful late afternoon black and white photos of RJ and Elle in that freezing cold weather. You never complained and kept everyone with a smile on their face even through chattering teeth. I think I made your life a little easier last year by getting in touch with you in October for our Christmas photos. But, once again I challenged you by having everyone on huge boulders that we all had to maneuver on, which was not so bad for us because we were not holding a camera, but for you I am sure it was not easy and once again you kept the mood light and kept us all smiling. You had us all at ease and you can tell from the photos that we were enjoying ourselves, which is not always easy to do especially when you have teenagers involved… UGH… You have a wonderful way, Terry Lee, and I truly love spending time with you whether you have a camera in your hand or not. You are caring and giving and truly a beautiful person both inside and out. I feel fortunate to have met you through photography, but look forward to keeping you as a friend…Thanks for all you have done for me and my family.
Lots of love, Janet Kermes | Lila Delman Real Estate
“Terry Lee did an awesome job on a Father’s Day gift for my father-in-law. We had a portrait done of all four grandchildren ages 2-12. She worked outdoors in our backyard. The outdoor setting lent itself to a very natural, soft background. The children were a challenge due to the age differences and learning disability. Despite the challenge she remained patient and flexible, experimenting with different positions, different backdrops and allowing for breaks to expend energy. She captured the essence of each child. Even after the session ended, she took pictures of the two year old who was suddenly very cunning and wanting to pose for her. Her patience and her desire to create art through her camera are the hallmark to her beautiful portraits. This was truly a keepsake to be cherished for many years to come.

Having a self conscious 17 year old daughter is stressful enough. Having to get her senior photo taken for the yearbook when she hates having her photo taken was going to be a nightmare. I came across Terry Lee’s business card in our pediatrician’s office and was floored that the gorgeous portraits I’d been looking at in that office for the past years were taken by someone local! I didn’t waste any time in calling, and Terry Lee was so accommodating. She met us at the chosen location and spent hours getting so many wonderful photos, it was very hard to choose which to use! However, the best part of the experience was that Terry Lee is so personable, and so reassuring, my daughter finally relaxed and actually wound up enjoying the experience! Terry Lee made a 17 year old girl smile about herself, and we made a new friend!
