Maybe you're worried about taking family photos because your husband hates getting dressed up and your kids act up when they have an audience. Maybe you're worried about family formals at your wedding because your grandma never smiles for pictures. Or maybe you're worried you won't be able to find the perfect wardrobe that looks put together and effortless at the same time. I get it and I'm here for you. I am at my very best when I'm behind a camera, pulling real expressions out of brides, babies, mothers, grandfathers...
Making connections with people is by far the biggest perk of my job. Receiving a heartfelt email after delivering a bride's album about how looking at her images in print blew her away in a whole new way. Getting ecstatic texts with pictures of engagement rings and stories of how he proposed. Answering late night phone calls from an emotional mom who just opened her gallery and can't believe that beautiful woman in the photo with her babies is HER. That's what makes my heart sing, and I'm looking forward to providing this same experience for YOU.
All sessions are shot in the early morning or evening for optimal lighting - the time frame of this will depend upon the season and the sun. Most sessions begin 15 minutes after sunrise or 60-90 minutes before sunset.

“We absolutely LOVED our session with Brandi and could not be happier with our family pictures! Not only was she professional in every way, she kept everything light-hearted so that we all enjoyed our time together. Every smile in our pictures was simply effortless because we were having so much fun! What an enjoyable experience!”
“Brandi has been doing our family photos for five years now. She is so good with my three daughters; her patience with them far outlasts mine at every shoot. Her personality is upbeat and outgoing, and she makes everyone feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. Brandi is more than our photographer, she is our trusted friend that we look forward to seeing each and every year.”
