maternity photography

Let’s capture your best life + the way you love

As a maternity photographer my goal is to help take all the stress out of a maternity session with constant pre-session communication so you get to feel fabulous and focus on celebrating that little love kicking in your belly come session time.

laugh, play games, be silly and just be yourselves

We make sure to get those iconic bump shots while simultaneously making sure you’re having fun with your hubby and littles, after all this will be the last set of family photos where your family looks like this and you deserve to soak up every minute of it and celebrate this amazing thing you and your body are doing whether it’s your first baby or your last.

So whether you need a personal hype girl to tell you what a freaking rockstar you are, and extra memorable day with hubs or to create a mini time capsule- I’m your girl and I’ve got you Mama.

We work together from the very beginning to make sure your portraits are at just the right location and you’re feeling fabulous! I take limited sessions to ensure I can give you the most hands on planning experience that really takes the stress out of maternity photos and allows you to focus on the fun and enjoy the capturing this chapter of your story.

Time is a thief, let’s steal a moment back.

Photography is the closest we’ve come to time travel. It allows us to relive our memories in every beautiful detail. Imagine yourself 7-10 years from now sitting in your living room, flipping through your family’s photo album, smiling and getting teary eyed while reminiscing on all the beautiful memories made with your kids- the excitement waiting on their arrival, those snugly newborn days, their pudgy little hands, never ending energy and unbounding curiosity about the world. 
Those memories are priceless.

maternity photo sessions



Maternity sessions are best scheduled anytime between 28-34 weeks to be sure you’re feeling great and can show of your bump! But it’s okay if you’ve decided after 34 weeks that you want maternity portraits! As long as you’re not in labor it’s not too late!

Brittney has captured our family, gender reveal, maternity newborn and I just scheduled our homestyle holiday -I love photos we get and how fun our session is!  and I love that we have real smiles and us in our everyday activities even more! Brittney was ready to lead races, spin ribbons and blow bubbles! I’ve never seen a photographer PLAY with our kids and encourage real laughter; by the end of our session our shy girls were giving her hugs and asking if she was going to come to our house to play with dolls with them.

Brittney was so amazing with my 2 year old daughter. She’s typically super shy and doesn’t say much around people she doesn’t know and she got her out of her shell! The images turned out STUNNING! I highly recommend Brittney for all your family photography needs!

We had the best time! We laughed SO much and even though I was really nervous beforehand Brittney made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and we had the best time laughing! She’s definitely our photographer for life!
