I'm not the same person I was a decade ago and neither are you. The new diploma, the new house, the new job, the birthday with the 3 in front of it (or 4 or 5 or 6+), that baby bump or the adoption, the 10 fingers and toes or the furry friend; wherever you are in your life, your future self will thank you for documenting the now, right now.

They say don't blink or life will happen before your eyes

Life’s an adventure worth documenting.

Drop me a line and let’s chat! Based on your vision I’ll provide recommendations to get the most out of our time together. This includes guidance on what to wear, assistance picking a location and details of what to expect during the session.

Before your session

Step one

My sessions are lifestyle focused but always start with our must-have “say cheese” photos. After we get those out of the way everyone starts to loosen up and that’s when the real magic happens. We’ll play games and I’ll prompt you with different scenarios to help bring out movement and laughter! I want you to have images that embody what life is like for you and your family right now.

during your session

Step two

after your session

I’ll curate your gallery to tell a story of our time together. You’ll receive your gallery within 4 weeks of your session through a private online gallery. I encourage you to share and most importantly, print your photos! Your future self will thank you!

"Brittany was such a pleasure to work with for our family's pictures! She offered great suggestions on locations and was so sweet to our toddlers (1 and 3.5 years old)! There were quite a few times that the kiddos weren't cooperating and Brittany didn't miss a beat! She had them smiling, giggling and captured some wonderful family moments! I plan to continue to have Brittany capture our family in photos for years to come!" - Becky

Portrait FAQs

What should we wear?

Ahead of your session I’ll provide you a guide that includes tips on what to wear along with a curated board of recommended pieces. When in doubt, Earth tones & neutrals are a great choice.

Where should we take our photos?

There are so many wonderful locations to choose from! I’ll send you a recommended locations guide for you to select the one that speaks to you the most.

What time will our session take place?

Outdoor sessions are scheduled about an hour prior to sunset. Indoor sessions most commonly take place in the morning. 

I have no idea what to do with my hands, will you help me?

Don’t worry, I’ve got you! I’ll guide you through the entire session and I promise you’ll leave with a smile on your face!

My kids can’t sit still - what do we do?

I love the energy that kids bring! I’m well versed in working with children and will work some magic to get them engaged in a fun way. My biggest tip is to let them lead and embrace the candid moments.

Can I share my images on social media?

Absolutely! Be sure to print your photos, too! 

Do you offer mini sessions?

I offer seasonal mini sessions on select dates at select locations. These fill up fast so join my email list if you’d like to be notified when the dates are released!

How far out should we book?

For family & couples, my weekend dates book up first so you’ll want to schedule anywhere between 2-4 months out to guarantee a weekend date. Fall is the busiest season and I recommend booking by June or July for a prime October or November date.

For newborns, I recommend booking as soon as you hit your second trimester. I'll hold your due date on my calendar then we'll finalize the date and time as soon as baby arrives.

Can we combine our session with another family?

The more, the merrier! You both book individually but will receive a discount if you book for the same day, time and location.
