Meet Brandie

A little about who is behind the lens…

Hi! It’s nice to meet you; I’m Brandie. I truly love capturing those moments that are fleeting, but sometimes move you the most. I have great attention to detail- something I honed during my time as a high school science teacher. My photographs are candid, generally not posed, and capture the heart of the scene before me. I believe it is the natural and un-scripted moments that evoke true feelings and relationships.

I love being able to convey emotional connections through my artwork. It’s crucial to me that I love every photo I take- after all, if I love it, you will, too! I admire photos that are transparent, clean, simple, and timelessly beautiful. It is for this reason that I gravitate towards a softer, yet lavish, wardrobe selection for my clients. I employ minimal props and minimal posing; it’s meaningful to me for you to just be yourself.

When I am not behind the lens…

I’m a wife to my loving husband, who is from my hometown, and mom to two little boys named Anakin and Finn (they are Jedi, like their father before them). We have a miniature bull terrier, Sprocket, which keeps us on our toes. Most of my time is spent editing portraits sessions and being a mom, but I also revel in horseback riding, hiking with my kids, gardening, reading, and making homemade soap.

I am flattered that you are considering me as your photographer. I look forward to making your portrait session a stress-free experience, and helping you capture your moments and create beautiful artwork that you will enjoy for years to come!
