I’m Brandi, a natural light photographer based in Lake County, IL with a passion for storytelling and natural beauty. I married my best friend and I’m a mom of three high-energy humans, Ryleigh, Taylor, and Knox. 

I am after authentic heartfelt moments with real, everyday families. Life isn’t posed or perfect, but your family and the memories you make are absolutely flawless. I believe this is what makes life so beautiful and fulfilling. Together, we will hike, laugh, dance, and embrace every nuance with joy and a journey. Let’s write your story together, illustrated with all the gorgeous imagery you create.

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”

“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 taking us back to those moments and reminding us of just how lovely our own families are.

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

“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!”
