Minneapolis & St. Paul Birth Photographer, Doula and IBCLC

Lactation - IBCLC



I started out my photography career in 2015 thinking I wanted to be a wedding photographer and a sprinkle of other sessions. The pregnancy, birth and postpartum time of my first child really set my heart in a different direction, and has led to all things that surround birth. Holding space for, witnessing, and documenting the unique journey to the birth of your baby is so sacred. All the moments as your family continues to grow and change over the years are worth documenting.

I love photographs that you can feel the connection with your partner and hear the contagious laughter of your child. I can also effortlessly guide you through movement and positions that still make you feel like your unique, authentic selves. 

Regardless of the type of photography session, I want you and your loved ones to feel safe, seen, and loved. My photography style is mostly documentary and true to life. The moments you remember and cherish with people you love aren’t the same ones from a perfect Holiday card picture.

"Brittany is incredible in every way. We have had her take photographs of our family during our most precious moments- a Fresh 48 shoot with our first born, multiple family photo shoots as our babies have grown, and then most recently the birth of our third child. She was also our doula for this birth. I cannot fully put into words what she has all given our family through her talent and her compassion. She just exudes love and a sense of calm in all that she does. The photos she has captured for us, the care she has given us as a doula, and the memories she’s shared with us will forever hold a special place in our lives and in our hearts."


"We cannot say enough wonderful things about Brittany. We hired her to photograph our home birth in 2021. Not only did she capture incredible photos of our day, she was also a vital support person to me, the midwives, and our sweet baby when things did not go quite as planned. 

Inviting someone into your birth space is so incredibly sacred and I cannot imagine what it would have been like not having her there. She was absolutely so much more than just someone taking photos... she was calm, reassuring, and fast acting, we are forever grateful. The photos captured every moment, even the tough ones, and were so therapeutic for me as I worked through some of the trauma from that day, I will treasure them for a lifetime. If you are considering Brittany, I know you won’t be disappointed."


"Brittany is the best! My family and I have been working with her since January 2020 when we asked her to do our newborn photoshoot for our son. To this day we get compliments on our newborn photoshoots, and we were so lucky to have found her through a mutual friend who did newborn photos with her as well.
Since then, we have been using Brittany for family photoshoots when she is available, and they have all turned out amazing. She has a real eye for seeing what is special about your family and getting those photos in candid moments. My husband and I have been together for 15 years, and she still captures the love, sarcasm, and joy in our relationship.
Our first baby was our dog Bella, and even at 8 years old Brittany makes her special in our photoshoots because she is so important to our family. She has been capturing the personality of our son for the past 4 years, and we couldn’t be happier with how much he has grown but also the same sparks of spunk, curiosity and laughs are seen throughout the years.
We are excited to work with her again this spring to get an extended family photoshoot done. I trust her completely and our family was immediately on board when I mentioned working with her – they love her work too! We hope to continue to work with Brittany in the future and can’t wait to see how the photos continue to highlight our family’s quirks, bond, and love for each other."


"Brittany creates magic! She takes breathtaking candid pictures that capture raw emotion. Brittany truly is one of the best and it shows through her work. She makes you feel comfortable and confident. I can’t recommend her enough. Brittany has captured the most special moments of my family’s life. Additionally, her customer service and follow through after the session was spectacular."
