When I work with a client, I want them feeling that their session was easy & painless. I want them to think of the session as a fun time creating memories, and only mildly remember that there was a camera there the whole time. When they get their images back, they will get to remember each moment while scrolling through their gallery. The small details, the hugs, the laughter, the tears.
I want to be a part of your story.
I want to capture the moments leading up to your first kiss as husband and wife. I want you to ensure you never forget the look on your husband-to-be's face as he saw you for the first time on your wedding day. I want you to relish the look of joy as you danced the night away celebrating your love on your wedding day. I don't want you to miss reliving the emotions of the best day of your life. The laughter shared with those closest to you, the emotions as your parents watch their babies get married, the joy you feel as you FINALLY get to be married!
I want you to never forget how you felt on the most important days of your life; your wedding day, the birth of your child, the grin your 3 year old gives you. It all deserves to be captured to treasure for years to come.

Ooh, that is a good one. I feel that most everything can be viewed creatively. I think light is the most influential aspect of my craft. I live for chasing light and finding the best ways to use it to my advantage. I can be driving down the road and see the way its spilling over a mountaintop and all I wish is "man! I should be shooting a gorgeous session right now to take advantage of this light!" Yes, I am absolutely a nerd.
Will you let me? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?! The answer is always YES! I love getting to travel. I must have been a world traveler in my past life. I love getting to go to new places and have amazing new experiences. Traveling is an additional expense, but I would absolutely love to talk about what you're looking for to create priceless memories in a location that is special to you!
My photography style is considered light and airy. I love the bright and timeless look this allows for. Your photos deserve to be heirlooms and not a fad that will be out of style in a few decades. I capture images in a crisp, realistic style and combine poses and prompts to allow for natural expressions and reactions to be shown.
For my portrait sessions, that includes my custom pre-session planning & style guide, travel to any location within 50 miles, the session itself, and the full gallery of high resolution images.
For weddings, each package is different, please send me an email to get package details!
Ah, the inevitable money question. I completely understand! We all have a budget, a magic number, we would like to stay within. I offer my portrait sessions (maternity, engagement, senior & family) starting at $400. My wedding packages start at $2500. There are different times a year that I may hold mini sessions for a lower price point. And, I always can work out a payment plan!
But, I'm not gourmet. I would LOVE to learn, I told my husband that Food Network gives me all the inspiration! For now its, comfort foods, Mac & Cheese, chicken noodles, homemade pizza, apple crisp.
And I thought having two girls under two was a struggle. My poor mom dealt with THREE newborns, She's the real MVP.
I wanted to be a high school history teacher before we joined the Army life. I still have an obsession with history trivia. One of my major wishes in the world is for a time machine!

Working with Brenda was great! We were nervous about working with a "stranger" and trusting that she could capture us as we are. Needless to say, that was silly! We have not stopped gushing over our photos!
My favorite part about working with Brenda is the way she interacts with my kids. They aren’t always the picture perfect kids you want at a photo session, and yet she somehow manages to get the best shots of them every time. You get us in and out to satisfy them, and in return give back incredible images to satisfy me :)

Brenda’s photography services really stood out to us because of how passionate she is about photography. She gets SO excited whenever her eye catches a stunning shot, and it makes the shoot SO encouraging and fun for everyone! Brenda is fantastic at instructing you to pose, so that your pictures come out as absolute masterpieces. I know that for my Husband and I, Brenda’s photographs will be cherished and passed on to posterity. Brenda is worth it if you truly want priceless photographs that will transcend time.
