have fun with your family. that's all you need to do.

Brittany Rains

That's why my goal is to provide you with a seamless, stress-free experience where you can just have fun with the people you love. While you're doing that, I'll work my magic and create colorful works of art that will transport you back to these very moments for years to come. 

As a mom of 3 boys, I know how you're feeling right now. Probably stressed, and definitely overwhelmed about ALL THE THINGS. You've been wanting to get updated photos taken for a while now but that's just another thing on your seemingly endless to-do list.

Have no fear, mama. I promise that the task of getting updated family photos doesn't need to feel so daunting. Yep even you, who normally hates being in front of the camera. I got you.

you don't need another thing on your to-do list causing you stress.

Listen, I get it. I've got 3 boys of my own and not a day goes by that shit isn't hitting the fan. 😅 Attempting to plan my own family session is a joke, so I know exactly how you must feel. Did I mentioned I'm super uncomfortable in front of the camera? (cue the red splotches all over my chest).

But trust me, while getting in front of the camera is hard, being able to look back at these images and seeing everyone together is MORE than worth being uncomfortable for a bit. 

Plus, comfort is my #1 goal for you when you're in front of my camera. I help you ahead of time with a style guide and the option to have me completely style your family (so you don't have to worry about a thing), a session prep guide that gives tips on how to feel prepared, AND ways you can interact during the session to help your kids and spouse enjoy the experience, too.


My loves



a stress-free experience that is catered to YOU WHEN YOU'RE GETTING YOUR PHOTOS TAKEN. 


to look at photos YEARS FROM NOW and remember EXACTLY what it was like when YOUR kids were THE AGE THEY ARE NOW. 


quality artwork of beautiful, vibrant, emotive photos to display on YOUR walls. (And guidance to help choose which artwork is best for you!)


TO finally have photos that shows off the TRUE personalities of everyone IN YOUR FAMILY



"Brittany was amazing at capturing our extended family. She made sure to take the time to get every photo we wanted and was extremely patient with our toddler. We are so happy with our photos, they mean the world to us!"


"She was extremely patient with our toddler."

Brittany took beautiful photos of our family! Our photo session was quick and efficient which is key when there are kids involved (of ANY age)! She did a fantastic job directing us - our photos look relaxed and natural, not posed and awkward!


"Relaxed and natural, not posed and awkward!"

 Brittany does an amazing job! She captures each person’s personality perfectly! She has an eye for detail! We love how creative she is with the poses. I will always treasure the photos she took of our family and puppy!!


"She has an eye for detail!"


Enjoy your fun photo experience full of silly moments, exploring, and snuggles. Embrace the chaos, enjoy each other, and go with the flow! You'll love your images so much more if you do.
