"We brought our son Ronin to Brittany for first birthday photos. Even though our sweet little boy was upset almost the whole time, Brittany made the process as calm as possible and was able to capture some sweet moments. We will definitely bring him back in the future!"
Brittany was a dream to work with! She was very responsive and easy to communicate with. I had a vision for what I wanted in my maternity photos and she executed perfectly. She created the most beautiful boho bedroom in her studio and it was exactly how I pictured it to be. She’s extremely creative and makes it fun! She made us feel so comfortable and I’m normally the most awkward person in front of a camera. But with Brittany, it felt natural. I am in love with the photos! 😍

What an amazing experience! Having fun and large family group photography might not sound like they would go together, but our extended family of 18 had a great time in our photo shoot with Brittany. She was so easy to work with throughout the process. From the planning, to the shoot, to the delivery of our photos she was professional, approachable, creative, and calming. We'll treasure the time we spent at this family reunion and now we have these lovely heirlooms to capture our time together.
