I'm Brianna. Pennsylvania based wedding + portrait photographer. My hair is typically in a messy bun, I usually have a baby on my hip, and I never say no to cake. I want photographs to feel as good as they look, and my overly sentimental, married, momma heart knows the weight of soulful photographs all too well.

You already know I love a good backyard Mechanicsburg family session, especially when that backyard is right outside my back door. This family session was a little extra special because the Kinney family was one of the FIRST families I photographed six years ago. After my first baby was born, I felt very lead to […]

I’ve been a Mechanicsburg Family Photographer for quite some time, and it’s no secret that I put a lot of focus on mothers during family sessions. I feel called to serve them more than any other. I know she has spent a lot of time thinking through this portrait session with me. Oftentimes she has […]

In-home family sessions have my heart. I want to scream it from the mountain tops and convince every mother that she needs one. Moms need photos taken in the place you spend all your time. The place you bring your babies home to from the hospital. Where all the teaching, loving, molding, and shaping occurs. […]

This family photography session is the perfect example of short and sweet! I was listening to a podcast recently, and the photographer talked about their family sessions that last for two hours. We all have our own styles and ways of doing things, but I thought I would talk about my perspective on the subject! […]

This family is so special to me. Heavens, I feel like I say that a lot. When the Edmons came to my home in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania last year, it was under construction in this very field. They stayed until dark and we played around in what little was there of a house. I remember feeling […]

Every spring, I get asked to do portrait sessions with blooming flowers. Springtime is known for the pink blooms erupting everywhere! One of my favorite spots to see them is around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. As you can see in this beautiful maternity session, there are so many pretty flowering trees around the city! I met Lauren […]

This is one of my favorite backyard family sessions that I never shared. I’m getting ready to photograph the Cho family again in a few weeks and their kids have doubled in size… I absolutely cannot wait!  This family traveled all the way from Pittsburgh for these photos! When a family makes the journey to […]

Some of my favorite backyard family sessions are with the Reddings. This family has turned into a wonderful, unexpected friendship and I am so thankful for them. They live about an hour away, and I deeply wish they lived ten minutes down the road. Our kids are all the same ages, and we are cut […]
