The value of motherhood and family photos will never be lost on me. Days with littles fly by in a hurried, sleepless haze. We want to capture each stage of our children's lives, but as a mom, I can relate to the stress and chaos that comes with a family photo session! After photographing families for over a decade, I've found the perfect method to make the experience enjoyable from start to finish. 

My unique family photography approach is tailored to busy moms and will result in the ultimate stress-free experience. I'll guide you in the preparation of our session, help curate wardrobe selections for your entire family (even offering access to my client wardrobe for mama and baby!), arrange for professional hair and makeup for mom, and end with a full storefront of options for physical prints, albums, framing and more. Most importantly, we will have FUN at our session, capturing a real-life documentary of your beautiful family. 

& Family experience


Once your session has been scheduled I'll send you my thorough prep guide to help you prepare for our upcoming session. I'll even assist in planning outfits for your whole family (with optional access to my studio wardrobe), deciding where your session will take place, and scheduling professional hair and makeup for mama.

Step One


the Experience

The morning of your session I'll arrange for professional hair and makeup to come to your home for pampering. This will allow for mama to get photo-ready while holding baby, writing work emails, or eating lunch. You deserve it! 
Newborn sessions are roughly 90-minutes, all other family and milestone sessions are typically one-hour. At your session we will play, take breaks as needed, and have a beautiful time capturing your family!

Step Two

Your session

You'll receive a beautiful slideshow of your images and will be able to select a digital collection that suits your needs the best. Every digital collection comes with digital files and a print credit, which allows you to put money towards prints, frames, albums, and other products. All products are thoughtfully curated from the best photo labs worldwide and will look stunning displayed in your home.

Step Three

Your Photos


Included in the session cost is the pre-session consultation, customized wardrobe styling, access to my studio wardrobe for mamas and babies, professional hair and makeup by Lady Vamp Artistry, studio rental at the Brooke Elisabeth Studio (if you opt for an indoor session), and the time for the session itself.

How much will I invest at the end?


Digital collections begin at $700. With the session cost paired with a digital collection, most families spend an average of $1200. Inquire about details for pricing for The First Year Membership.

Why don't sessions come with access to all the files from our session?


Every digital collection comes with a specific number of digital files (one collection does include all of the photos from your session!). But it's so much more than just saving files to your phone or computer! All that time and money invested in your session deserves a better return than photos gathering dust on a hard drive somewhere. You'll never get the same feeling looking at your photos on a screen as you will seeing them on your wall or flipping through the pages of an album, so I include a substantial print credit with every collection that can go towards whichever products suit your needs the best: prints, albums, frames, etc.

Your phone is your primary camera and is filled with photos of your kids. You want to capture it all, but most of your photos are blurry, the lighting is poor, and you have far more outtakes than frame-worthy moments.   Or maybe you're the new DSLR owner. You received a DSLR camera when your kids were born, but you have no idea how to use it. Auto mode isn’t giving you quality images and you’re overwhelmed at the thought of shooting in manual mode. Want to capture more intentional, everyday photos of your kids? I've created a course that's perfect for you!

this is for you!

Dear Mamas,

Sweet words


Trish is such a wonderful photographer! Her photos are AMAZING, and she is so easy to work with. We've now worked with Trish 3 times - for our pregnancy announcement, maternity, and newborn photos. Even my husband - who doesn't normally like to take photos - has commented on how comfortable he feels during our sessions with Trish. And our friends/family constantly tell us how beautiful, bright, and airy the photos are. I completely agree! Our photos will be cherished forever! We highly recommend Trish and cannot wait to work with her again in the future!

I couldn't recommend Trish more for your newborn photos! I love her timeless style and, not surprising, our gallery was full of gorgeous images of our family and our new baby girl that we will cherish forever! She captured our family so perfectly! She also made our session so easy and was SO great at making our 3 year old comfortable by taking the time to chat with him and get him to warm up to her! I can't wait for her to capture our family as our kids grow!

Trish came to the hospital to do a Fresh 48 session two days after we had our daughter Emery. Being sleep deprived brand new parents is hard, but Trish couldn’t have made it easier or more enjoyable. We were so comfortable with her during a vulnerable time and she had such a calming presence. I couldn’t help but tear up when we received the photos back. Babies truly grow and change so quickly and it’s amazing to look back at our photos and see just how tiny she was. We will forever cherish our beautiful photos.
