LIVE IN THE MOMENTS YOU'LL NEVER FORGET
Let me capture them for you.
It's just a normal Monday. You've packed another lunch, or handed out another snack! The house is a mess with toys and dishes and even though it might only be 9:30 in the morning, you are already exhausted! Motherhood isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s the best job and it’s the toughest job! We’ve all heard that saying: the days are long but the years are fast! Anyone who is a mother lives and breaths this statement. It’s the rhythm of our beating heart! That lunch you packed.. that was for the tween or teenager you may have just sent off to school. The snack, that was probably for the kindergartener or the toddler who, gosh wasn’t that one just a baby a month ago?
Where does the time go?
But then it hits you. These days are so long. You look around and the house and scan the room but all of a sudden your eye catches a photo. That ONE photo you framed so long ago: you remember. Those babies... the chubby cheeks. That little boy with the two front teeth missing making THAT face! OHH that silly face that you hated so much but now makes you laugh! You giggle a little because you can feel it. You can feel the laughter and the joy. Immediately you are right back there to the tiny toes and the games we played because it's there, captured forever. That's why you work with me. Because that boy with the teeth missing, he's a young man now in his teens! And the toys spread around the room, they are from that chubby cheeked baby who is now at school. But there they are, in that beautiful moment frozen! That moment where you can remember those details, that precious time always!
I believe truly beautiful family images (the kind that last the test of time) come from a relationship and connection! This is why I take the time to get to know my clients... so be prepared to have a new BFF! This isn't just an experience for me, it's a relationship I hope that lasts a lifetime!
I have been with my clients through births, loose teeth and all the way through graduations!
Time may not stop, but with photographs we can can freeze these moments and visit them whenever we like!
Brooke not only captures love and fun of a family but also celebrates the joy a family has by freezing time in her photos!

behind the lens
My family is my north! Mama is my favorite title followed by wife and then memory keeper for my family! I believe with all my heart that REAL will always be better than perfect!
I've been a photographer for a long time but it wasn't until I became a mama that it became a passion and SO much more!
I love the raw moments, the candid ones, the tender ones, the emotional ones!
Life happens way too fast and I want to soak in every single second of it. I want the sticky finger moments, the belly laughs, the tears and the tantrums and all that happen in between!
Everyone wants photos that are timeless, magical, joyful and purely THEM! Photos that not only stand up to the test of time, but when you look back on them you will say YES!! This was us! This was our lives: beautiful, silly, chaotic and wonderful! I can help you get that! Check out my tips on how to get the best family photos! And then maybe schedule a session!
