There's a reason I'm a wedding AND portrait photographer. From proposals to weddings to maternity sessions to family there are so many events and ages worth capturing! Think of me as your lifetime photographer! Once we work together once, you're in the BDphotos fam for life. Portrait sessions offered include maternity, newborn, family, proposals, engagements, headshots... really anything you can think of. Can't wait to photograph you soon!

Love Notes

"Being nervous in front of the camera is a thing of the past, Brett makes you feel so comfortable."

Brett is reliable and fun! She has now captured our engagement, wedding, baby announcement, and hopefully many more special moments to come.

Family Session

She’s fantastic with little ones even when they are less than cooperative

Brett is not only an amazing photographer, but a true friend that captures our precious family moments! She’s fantastic with little ones even when they are less than cooperative and I have never ever been anything less than amazed by what she is able to produce! She’s sweet, funny, easy going and just makes you feel like she’s part of the family. Brett has photographed some of the biggest moments in our lives and I will always be thankful it was her behind the lens knowing just when to snap that picture!

Wow! Brett made me feel completely comfortable from the initial communication all the way to the delivery of the photos. One of my favorite bands was even playing on the speakers when I got to the set for the shoot! Any questions I had, she answered perfectly. My partner was floored when I finally showed them... as in I had to pick their jaw up off the floor! The most perfect birthday gift. Thanks Brett!

Lifestyle newborn sessions are photographed in your home or in a studio. The Maternity + Newborn Guide that I’ll provide will walk you through the entire process from outfits and location through baby’s first album. Please inquire as soon as possible for session availability.
