Hello! I'm Vanessa Brooke, a wife and a mama of three kiddos. My love for photography began when I was a little girl and my father taught me how to use a film camera, develop my own film, and make my own prints in our darkroom attached to our garage. I'd say my true style developed in my college years when I worked as a photojournalist and when I transitioned into fashion photography. After having my first baby, I decided to start my own business and the luxury of making my own schedule. I now photograph not only family portraits, but I also do editorial shoots for interior design and apparel companies.
Specializing in lifestyle photography I document life. Whether it's a home birth, a family shoot in the comfort of your home or a senior location shoot, I photograph those important moments in your life. My technique is simple, I don't use flash photography, it's just me and my camera.
My sessions are fun and relaxing. I'm a super casual girl and I love capturing real moments... so kick off your shoes and just be you! I love fashion, so if you have a personal style, don't be afraid to express it. And if you need a little help, I Iove to help coordinating wardrobe ideas. Also, I have a great team of makeup and hair stylist, so we've got you covered.
And I can't begin to tell you how much I love working with babies and kids. Sometimes we tend to put pressure on kids to be perfect statues during a session, but that's not how I roll, I love capturing kids being kids. Let them be silly and I will chase them if I have to.
With all of our busy schedules, I'm available by phone, FaceTime and email for a free consultation. I take a half deposit to hold your session date.
Send me the details on the type photo shoot you're looking for and I'll be happy to get back to you with a free quote and info.
