Imagine if you could always remember every moment of the day you met your baby for the first time, without the stress of having to nag your family & friends to take these photo memories for you. Imagine if you and your loved ones could simply live in the moment, and get to look back at their reactions on that day as well, through beautiful, professional, perfectly composed, heirloom photos of your child's first moments on earth.
That's what I'm here for, as your Birth Photographer...
"When it comes to birth photography, my husband and I felt like we hit the jackpot with brandy. from our initial meeting, she put this anxious mama to ease with her knowledge, level of excitement, and care for our baby's debut. our photos were high quality, and more than we could have even imagined. I would highly recommend brandy. she truly has a god-given talent for what she does."
"my most favorite thing looking back at my birth story are some of the small moments between my husband and i, how she captured my mom & sister's reactions once my baby was born, and even moments of me in peace after my baby's birth. she was so amazing and i'm so grateful for her talents. I just remember, once i was at the birth center, she was there with her soft voice, and just immediately went to work, capturing the moments of that day. Looking at brandy's work, i could tell she was soft & kind, and it was like a mother's eye capturing everything you might not notice, but would want to remember from the day your baby is born. i loved everything about our experience...you could not have a more amazing, loving birth photographer than brandy."
"brandy was so fun to work with, and it didn't ever feel forced or awkward. everything went so smoothly at each step. she is friendly, personable, and easy-going. it almost seemed as if we were already friends, or had known each other in the past. once i saw, brandy's work, i was amazed! it was everything i was looking for. the birth photos and newborn photos were exactly what i was looking for. it was a perfect fit. my most favorite things, looking back at my birth story, are all of the emotions captured in the photos. they really tell our story, and i love that."
"brandy did my sister's maternity & birth shoots. the maternity photos were amazing...she was funny, and sweet, and knew the best poses to accentuate the belly while keeping it looking effortless. she took the time to get to know us, and brought extra props, in case we forgot. she was invaluable at the birth too, having been a l&d nurse before. she was able to answer so many questions, which eased a lot of anxiety for all of us. brandy was there all day but wasn't intrusive at all. to top it all off, the one thing that made me smile the most was the simplest gesture that none of us had thought of. after being on nothing but ice chips for 12+ hours, brandy pulled a chocolate chip cookie out of her bag, and gave it to the new mom after delivery. priceless."
"brandy did my maternity, birth, and newborn photos, and i can definitely say we found our permanent family photographer! each time from start to finish, i felt so comfortable and relaxed with her. at a time when a woman can feel less than her best, brandy made me look and feel beautiful. she was the calming presence i needed in my labor. since she used to be a nurse, she really helped me keep my sanity. i felt safe with her, especially at my most vulnerable & anxious time. she was an angel. present but never imposing. she captured the feel of the day, more than i could've ever hoped for. having her at my birth is a memory i will always cherish."
"brandy made us feel good and not stress. she made the session feel so natural. my girls are ready for more pictures, and that is a plus, because my little one is special when it comes to pictures & other people! even she felt comfortable though! and brandy's final product was beautiful! price was affordable, and scheduling was easy. we will for sure keep making memories with her when she is available."
"brandy did an absolute fantastic job capturing the most important moment in our lives. she did both my maternity & newborn photo sessions, and they turned out so much better than i could have ever imagined. she will definitely be the one i call for all of our picture perfect moments."
