I've learned there is no perfect time to plan something, you just have to go for it. Life doesn't stand still and with the endless things being added to our to do lists, it can just continue to pass us by. My goal is to capture your life as is and to foster an atmosphere that focuses on fun, interaction, and connection. No pressure and nothing forced. You deserve a complete luxury and effortless experience. I'll guide you from the moment you inquire, to location and wardrobe guidance, to helping you select the perfect images and heirlooms for your family. This allows you to focus on getting back to your to do list and not adding more things to it. 


Moments are Fleeting..

I often hear that Mothers feel the weight of planning everything for their session. They worry their kids will be to wild and the Dads will be reluctant to join in. This is why I have created this luxury experience for families who see quality over quantity and desire a customized session to meet their every desire. It includes pampering for the Mama and fun for the whole family. 

The Experience...

"We did a lifestyle family session at our home with Brea and could not have been more pleased. We wanted our photos to embrace the chaos of our family and capture the personalities of our young children at this stage in our life. Brea delivered above and beyond our expectations. It was a wild time trying to dress and assemble our family for the shoot and when she left I said to my husband, "If she got 1 usable photo I'll be shocked." What we got were stunning pictures that showcased exactly what I had in my head. She was great at communicating with us and even hand delivered our prints. 100% recommend!"
