connection, creation, communication
...BUT YOU CAN JUST CALL ME BRITT
I really like taking pictures with a genuine perspective, connecting with people, and telling their stories through this unique and personal form of art.
When I am not obsessing over my next photoshoot you can probably find me planning my next trip, browsing through the isles at target, or decorating my house.
Circa 1999... where it all began.
If I think back to when I started taking photos I go back to the 90’s in elementary school with a disposable camera. I would go around my yard and take pictures of flowers, or sometimes I would style our pets for some glamour shots. My mom would print them out for me and I still to this day have these photos in my attic. I saved $50 once when I was in 4th grade and I bought myself a pink Barbie camera. I took it to school and took pictures of all of my friends at recess. As a teenager, I always had my point and shoot camera in hand and could be found wandering around making up a photo scavenger hunt or styling myself for a photoshoot.
So how did I turn this into a job? My family and friends started asking me to take their photos for them and I honestly really enjoyed it. A few years ago, I upgraded to a “real” camera and expanded my hobby to offer boudoir photo sessions to women. I knew so many people who struggled to see themselves as beautiful, and I often struggled with the same feeling. I knew I could find the beauty in each person by showing them a different PERSPECTIVE. I began taking boudoir photos and the results surprised me. Girls would say, “I really look this good?”, “OMG, I love my photos!”, and what sticks out to me the most, “You really boosted my confidence”. Doing this for women really boosted my own confidence in my photography and well... here we are today. I'm here having fun & obsessing over what I do.
so you want your photos taken?here's what i believe...
The two most important things to me in photography are connection and creativity. I understand that having your photo taken can make you nervous. I'm not just taking your photos, I am creating a vision, memories, and artwork and I take that very seriously. I want you to feel heard and understood. From day one I am open to answering any questions you might have, talking about your vision, addressing any insecurities, and making sure you know that I am here for YOU!
Get to know me.
How would you describe yourself?
ENFP, Pisces, Enneagram type 4 if you’re into all that kind of stuff. Forming genuine connections, understanding people and being understood is important to me. I love being near the water, give me the beach, a pool or a fricken bubble bath.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.
I have been married to my soul partner (aka husband), Zach for 11 years. He is the logic to my creativity and the calculated to my free-spirit. He has been my biggest supporter of advancing my photography career. Together, we have adopted two daughters, and were blessed to have a now two-year-old and another baby on the way after a 7 year infertility journey. Our family is very unconventional and unique and we have definitely learned a lot through our journey as parents!
What do you like to do for fun?
I like cooking and wine drinking because I love experiencing new things through smells and flavors. I love traveling, writing, and game nights. I like the freedom and calmness of the outdoors, but I can’t resist a good night out in the city! My self-care routine includes: taking baths, yoga, and journaling. You can find me collecting house plants and crystals. I'm also real basic and appreciate frequent trips to Target and Starbucks to clear my mind.
What kind of music do you listen to?
My favorite type of music is indie / alternative. Some of my favorite bands include: Dope Lemon, Milky Chance, Caamp, Alabama Shakes, and Shakey Graves. I love listening to music when I edit photos and I will sometimes create a special playlist to edit and contribute to the overall vibes.
What’s your favorite TV show?
Sooo, I can’t just pick one favorite but some of my past and present favorites include: 90 Day Fiancé, Schitt's Creek, Queer Eye More than a Makeover, Love it or List it, New Girl, Weeds.
