Unconventional photography for modern families.


love, art, and nostalgia through images


Based in Central Wisconsin. Travels anywhere and everywhere. Just inquire.

You know that gut-punch feeling you get when you look back at an old photo and realize that they do indeed grow up in a blink of an eye? It's painful, I know. Then you begin to wish you took more photos, and shit, for once be IN those photos.


This is the time. Today is that day to contact me and change all of that. Let's build something together that will only grow in meaning as time goes on. I have a front row seat to your family history and I'm ready.

Meet your lifestyle photographer

 

Hi friends, I'm Birdie.

 

I'm so glad you stumbled upon my little corner of the internet. First things first - NO, Birdie is not my given name. It's Britney, but everyone calls me Birdie - I know you were dying to ask.


Now that we've got that out of the way we can get down to the nitty gritty.


I like to call myself a storyteller. I'm someone who is unapologetically documenting life. I'm the friend everyone makes fun of for always having my phone out taking pictures and videos. I specialize in intimate portraits and human connections. I'm a firm believer in breaking the rules and letting my heart guide me through all. I shoot what it feels like - not what it looks like. I just love to capture STORIES & EMOTIONS in their purest form - big   and small. All I want is to capture this very detail, this moment, this story that you're creating together that will matter to you later in your life. And I'm a mother who gets it. Like you, I'm so wrapped up with my day-to-day wild happenings, too busy to stop and breathe sometimes. Being in the business of reminding others to slow down and be present serves as a wonderful reminder for me, too. Parenthood is the most challenging, transformative, and most rewarding job on this planet. Let's get you in front of the camera already!


I am here to freeze some memories for you.





"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life."

Named one of the most compelling storytelling photographers by Hello Dear Photographer Magazine.

Each family that I work with is unique and different. There are no two stories alike. I love investing time in getting to know you and yours, and learning what's important for you to document. These are more than just photos. It's a story of who you are. Who you were. Moments frozen forever as heirlooms.

"We're all so frightened by time, the way it moves on and the way things disappear. That's why we're photographers.We're preservationists by nature.We take pictures to stop time, to commit moments to eternity."

Ben Ryder

"It's my sincerest hope that my clients walk away with a full heart, beautiful images, and a new friend."

I have had Birdie photograph my family on multiple occasions and each time she has delivered pictures that were far beyond my expectations. She exudes joy, acceptance, and compassion from behind the lens.  Birdie is able to photograph you in the way you have always wanted to be seen. I don’t know how she does it, but she is able to portray the deepest, darkest and most beautiful parts of you. The entire session is comfortable from beginning to end because of her warm, fun personality. She is adventurous and willing to go to extremes to capture the best and most unique portraits. Her sessions are always one of a kind and unforgettable. Not only does Birdie have skill and talent but most importantly she is passionately creative. It is obvious that she truly wants to deliver you images that you will love for the rest of your life. During your session, Birdie will find a way to engage you and capture raw, real emotions. Her sessions may leave your sides aching from laughter or you may leave wiping away tears you didn't know you needed to release. Simply put, her work is art. It is deep and personal, rich and raw. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Stories

My belief is that every person should be framed in the moments they’ve felt the most loved and cared for.


Don't just make a memory, mark it.


Moments, big and small.

Emotions, quiet and loud.

Smiles, shy and spirited.

Imaginations, playful and free.


These are the things we want to remember forever.


Let's capture them ALL.
