I’m here to hit the pause button for you, to highlight the way you connect, the way you touch, and what is real for you in this messy, gorgeous, fleeting stage of your children’s lives.

the family experience

Work together

It all happens so fast. Watching them grow before your eyes, blinking and worrying you’ll miss it. You know the saying “the days are long, but the years are short”? 

One day you'll be left with only the memory of a sink full of dishes and your kids' sticky hands twirling in your hair while you cradle them in your arms. Your sheets will no longer hold crumbs and sand and everyones’ tangled limbs.

You'll give anything to be transported back to this time when you were your little humans' whole world. When no safer place existed for them then your hug.

Years from now you'll want to remember this time in your life, just as it is.

Blink and you'll miss it. 


Clients are drawn to my effortless, relaxed posing and the perfect amount of fun in my images. Family sessions combine my playful manner with magical use of light to create images of your family that you will adore for years to come.

I always include a couple of smiling photos for grandma's fridge, and then for most of time we just hang and play, creating lots of time for my signature connected candids. 

My Approach.

The process 

the family







Best news? You don’t have to worry about managing your kids at ALL during the shoot.  That’s my job! (and I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve.)   Your job is to show up ready to love on your best people. Plus, it actually works better if you let me do the worrying–I count on kids to give me their natural selves, and they can’t do that as well with mom + dad trying to strong arm them into following absolutely everything I say. Pressure’s off.


I pride myself on a quick delivery.  No more waiting months on end for your photos! 

I'm big on over communicating. From initial inquiry on, you will immediately notice one thing about me- I always follow up. So, be prepared to hear back from me within 24 hours or less. 

The family photo session process



I know how stressful it can be planning outfits for the whole family. But for me, it's fun! I have a lot of resources to help you make your decisions, client wardrobe options for moms and kiddos to borrow, and can always suggest  links for direct purchase. Style and colors are EVERYTHING and I am here to make your vision come to life

my work has been published in several magazines and publications including:

“She made the entire process - with a newborn and a toddler - so easy, from initial communication to day-of wrangling. She even had some treats and games on hand to help my older son through some of his toddler moments.

I will treasure these pictures forever, and can't wait to book another family session with Brittany!"


“Working with Brittany was such a great experience, from the initial booking to the day of the shoot everything was wonderful. We had her come to our house for our first ever newborn shoot and she immediately put us at ease and made the experience so comfortable, natural and easy (we felt as if we had known her forever)! She was available to help give advice on our outfits and made it so easy finding what would look best in the pictures. She also was so accommodating when our baby came 2 weeks early and made the scheduling of the date of our shoot a seamless experience. We truly cannot wait to work with her again and capture more memories as our family grows! The pictures turned out beautiful and I am so grateful to have them to cherish for years to come!If you are looking for a photographer to capture beautiful family memories look no further! .”

"We knew we wanted photos taken to document the newborn stage, but were also not super comfortable in front of the camera that early on. She made everything so easy, carefree, and super comfortable! She had props for our newborn, and caught some amazing candids. They’re now hanging in our son’s room! We can’t recommend Brittany enough; we plan to do our next family shoot with her within the next few months."

“With all the things my wife had to do while she was pregnant and how tiring it is at the end, I took on finding a newborn photographer. I was a little worried about it because photos are really important to my wife. I looked at what feels like every newborn photographer in the Twin cities website to find what I knew she was looking for. She didn’t want novelty shots; she wanted candid shots that really looked like us and captured how much we love our little guy.

Having Brittany take photos of our newborn was fantastic. She was very flexible with our needs in the first weeks of being parents and moved around our session to accommodate them. Her experience knowing what will be comfortable and look good together was very helpful. She created a relaxed atmosphere which helped us all enjoy the experience. And, most importantly, the photos turned out amazing. Her photos captured what the early days were like and will help us to remember that special time forever.

In the end, I was a big hero for finding Brittany. I would recommend her to anyone!

Thank you!
we'll be in touch soon!
