About

BIOGRAPHY

I was born and raised in Maryland. I attended a small liberal arts college in this Old Line State and it has been the launch point for my many adventures as a photographer, doula and business owner.  My background is in Political Science and Biology and a lot of creativity. Maryland It is where I have chosen to plant deep roots with my husband, our four kids and our micro homestead. We live on the outskirts of Frederick in a 100+ year old home and have too many plants and creatures to count. ​

I started photography in 2010 when I picked up a camera my neighbor gave me. It has been my ticket into worlds I never could have imagined and ultimately led me to support women in birth and postpartum.

Motherhood is my heart-work. My kids are my joy. It is the biggest part of my own story and the stories I tell.

We have used Brittany for birth photos, 1st birthday photos, & family photos. She always nails it & we are so happy with the results. Even the birth photos that I wasn't sure I wanted turned out amazing. In the midst of all the crazy that happens in a delivery room, we didn't even realized she was there. She was so discrete but captured everything beautifully. -Courtney M.
