“Brittany is amazing. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. We’ve done family photos every year with several different photographers and Brittany’s photos are the best ones we’ve ever had! I hope we can work with her again soon.”
Think of my lifestyle sessions as a peek into your life. Whether it's with your family, just you and your loved one, or if you’re just feelin’ youreslf, I’ve got you. I take portraits to the next level, while still getting the posed photos, I love to incorporate the movements and emotions that go into life as you're living it.
When you hear the words "family portraits" most of the time you think photos in a portrait studio where your whole family is stiffly posed, but that's not what you'll get with me. My main priority in our sessions is to show your relationships with each other in a loving and authentic way. Get those natural smiles and real moments between each of you. Of course, I incorporate poses, but I like them to look natural. I want you to look back at these photos and think about how amazing your family is.
I love love, simple as that. I’m always trying new and fun ways to show who you are as a couple. Okay, so I get it that showing your "lovey dovey" side to people outside your own relationship can be nerve-racking, but I pride myself in showing how incredibly marvelous my couples are.
Birth photography is among my favorite photography services I get to be a part of. Birth sessions are so filled with love, raw emotion, and new beginning that they simply make for incredible photos.
Birth photos usually are very unpredictable, for obvious reasons. You never know when the baby will arrive, so coordinating birth pictures can be a little difficult. Normally, I have the couple contact me (either call or text) to tell me that they are on the way to the hospital or about to leave for the hospital. I will start making preparations to go to the hospital but I will wait until I hear how far along the mother is. I usually head to the hospital when the mother is dilated 7-8cm with her first baby. With the second and on, I am to head there around 5-7cm.
When I arrive, I will quietly take a few candid photos of the mother laboring... along with some sentimental, candid photos of the couple before they officially become parents. As the baby enters the world, I typically stay at an angle that will create beautiful, tasteful photos that won't make your granny gasp! (If you know what I mean! haha) I quickly capture those first breaths and first skin-to-skin interaction with mama. I slide around the room, quietly taking photos of the proud parents admiring their precious gift.
