Capturing real & beautiful moments for your family to treasure for generations.
Our memories live on in our minds, stories and photos. Your children or the generations beyond will see your photos as heirlooms and feel the energy you were creating in your life.
For those living a childfree existence, our pets are our children. These magical beings take us into their hearts and we become their entire world. Our fur families are only with us for a short time and these relationships are just as valuable and worthy of documentation.
Whomever you call family, let's capture these fleeting moments and turn them into tangible memories.
I love the creative play that is required to work with families and pets. We’ll think outside the box, flow with whatever happens and capture your family as honestly as possible — messiness, tears, goofy smiles, and all. You’ll want to remember the real memories.
We want to capture your kids and/or pets in their natural state of freedom and fun.
I encourage candid, organic photos that reflect the honest personalities of your family.
I’ll help you stay away from overly matchy clothes and awkwardly posed photos, so these images will be cherished and proudly displayed.
I will be your co-conspirator to help you find the right location(s), fun ideas for props, creative activities, and provide tips for natural outfits.
I’ll take these details off your plate so you can show up and be present with your family, trusting that you’ll receive beautiful, creative, and honest images.
Capturing your kids at any age is incredibly validating for them. It proves to them that, in any stage of life, they are loved, respected, and seen.
Even if your kids feign disinterest in family photos, they will appreciate you later for allowing them to be themselves, dress the way they want, and (most importantly) know that they are a valued part of the family.
Family photos are not just for people with little ones. They are for any season of life.
These family portraits are not about trying to capture an idea of perfection. They are about capturing the true story of your family, just as they are, in this moment in time.
Before our session, I’ll get to know your family and their individual personalities. On the day of your session we can get playful to help everyone feel comfortable, free, and expressive. If we need snack time, a diaper change, to slow down or play games, that is all apart of your reality.
I hope to capture honest moments in your life, even if your kids or pets are being silly, dirty, or restless.
On the day of your session, we’ll take our time so everyone feels comfortable, validated, and free to be themselves. I aim to reflect the true personalities in your family - embracing the messy and chaotic moments that tell an authentic story. This is where the true magic lies.
Fill out the contact form below and tell me about your family, the photographs you hope to capture, and any other details you'd like me to know.
I will send you an email to schedule a Zoom call. During this call we'll chat about locations, wardrobe, activites, personalities, and answer any questions you might have.
After our call I will send you an official proposal. In the proposal you can select the photography collection that suits you best, review & sign your contract, and pay your retainer to secure your session date.
Once you're booked we'll meet again for your session, have all the fun, take all the photos. As soon as your photographs are ready I'll reach out to schedule your reveal session. Together we'll review all your photos, pick your favorites, and design your family heirlooms.
"We cannot say enough amazing things about [Briana]!
From my first exchange with Briana, I just knew it was the right match and would be such a fun experience! She is incredibly warm, kind, understanding and genuinely interested in capturing your story the way you want it told. She listens with intent and truly cares about you. She was patient with all my questions and nervousness, and I felt like I was always talking to a friend. Yet, she maintains a high level of professionalism every step of the way.
The photo shoot itself was a blast! I took all of Briana’s advice about attire, makeup, etc., and am so glad I did! The two hours flew by and we got the most incredible photographs! Briana is very talented and the moments she captured will be cherished forever!
There are not enough amazing things we can say about Briana, but one last thing to note - we already have, and will continue to, recommend her to anyone we know. You will not regret working with her for one minute! She takes care of her clients and is invested in you :-)"
