Hi! I'm Tess.

I am originally from Ohio but living in sunny Colorado since 2009. I have fallen in love with the mountains and our rapidly growing city. I like to think that Denver and I grew up together.

Dever newborn photographer, Tess Polivka

And because I love bullet points here's a few about me:

•I am a Denver newborn, maternity, and family photographer. I was primarily a wedding photographer for many years until my brides starting having babies. I made the change about 10+ years ago to be a growing family photographer.

•I'm a total dog person. Dizzy is our pit mix baby. So if you want to bring your dog to your session? AWESOME. Include them in your newborn session? GREAT.

•I love traveling, eating, listening to audiobooks, hiking, and hanging out with my fiance and dog. I'm getting married in New Orleans February 2024. I never thought I'd be a person to have a wedding but I am SO excited. I might ask you all about your wedding. It's now part of my personality.

•I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, type B personality, and a 9 on the enneagram. Basically, I'm a laid back person.

•I watch too many animal videos on Facebook/IG, eat too many cookies, listen to audiobooks (anyone else still call them books on tape?), and probably watch too much tv while I edit.

• I don't have any children (yet?). I do get this question a lot because I know how to handle a baby and keep them calm ♡ Maybe one day. Maybe. I should probably freeze my eggs. Ha. Until then, I'm happy being a dog mom.
