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.

Harrisburg Maternity Session | The Swann Family

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 when I went to New Zealand on a photography trip in 2016. I treasure her friendship and love watching her family grow. Recently, I photographed them as a family of four, but could not forgo posting their maternity session from last year – it’s one of my favorites!

I am often asked “Bri, when should I schedule maternity photos?” I like to suggest doing them between 28-32 weeks. Every woman shows differently, and this allows us some wiggle room to reschedule for rain if need be.

The next question I usually get asked is: “But Bri, where do I buy a dress?!” 

I will link some fun places to shop at the end of the blog. Just remember that you do not have to buy a “maternity” dress either! So many of my mommas just buy a normal dress in the next size up – this definitely opens up more places to shop! Lauren’s beautiful dress is from Nothing Fits But; these dresses are an investment, but they are also designed to be worn before and after pregnancy!
