soon to be big sister is wrapped up in mamas arms during a laughing embrace in a late summer maternity session with Brittney Emerson Photography at Firestone Park

real life. real love. right now.

every mama wishes she could freeze time, photographs are the closest we’ve come to time machines. whether it’s that tiny babe growing in your belly you’re anxiously waiting to meet, the sweet smelling baby that has you wrapped around their tiny finger or the kids growing and changing everyday- my mission is to tell your story in an authentic way!

the perfect combo of fun + sentimental

hey mama! i’m brittney!

the unfortunate part of motherhood is that a sign well done means after what felt like endless days and nights they go out into the world leaving us with all the memories of the excitement waiting to meet them, their tiny toes and that newborn smell and their pudgy hands holding on to you while they negotiate to postpone bedtime.

my well planned, fun approach to lifestyle photography means we capture who your family is right now with motion and laughter. It also means you can rest easy knowing I am well prepared for whatever kind of shenanigans your kiddos (or your hubby) want to throw my way! expect to laugh, play and snuggle your way to your favorite family photos yet!
