Hey, there! I’m Brandi, and I am so happy you are here! I find beauty in the daily chaos of motherhood, raw emotion, and connections. Life isn’t posed or perfect, but I believe every family has a story waiting to be told. It is my desire to capture moments that are not only enduring portraits but emotional and authentic to your family’s story. My work is filled with real families and connections, each in a unique way.

“We had a wonderful experience with Brandi! After booking the appointment I received the follow ups with some great tips and advice. She got to work right away. She was fast and efficient with capturing everything. After, I received the photos, I was is awww! Absolute perfection! They truly captured our little moment in time, along with the personalities of each person! I love them!”

As a mother of three, I have learned the value of family photos and treasuring those fleeting moments of childhood. While they are only children for a short time, we will forever be parents. We will always desire the memory of their tiny hands, their little giggles, and silly antics. Photos seem to have a way of bringing us back to those moments and reminding us of just how lovely our family’s story is.

Every session is uniquely planned to each family. From hiking caves and canyons of Starved Rock to building sandcastles as the sun sets behind the beach. Together, we’ll plan the most beautiful session with ease. No need to stress styling or locations. I have your back in all areas. This time is meant to be an adventure, memories in the making, not just another family portrait session.

Whatever it is, I’d love to tell your story.



This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

“Brandi is absolutely wonderful! She takes her time and really captures some amazing candid shots! She chose a great location for us because we were unsure of a good spot (she knows all the good spots!). There was a super quick turn around with the photo edits and I love all of the pictures!”
