THE HEART BEHIND MY WORK

01

I want moms to feel as incredible as I see them, especially during the time in their lives when they may not feel so incredible. But they are! Pregnancy is beautiful, and glamorous, and sexy, and remarkable. This season is temporary. What better way to document your body's changes than with an experience worth remembering? Picture this: stunning hair and makeup, a glamorous gown (or two!), the wind blowing through your hair, the golden desert sunlight offering a glowing crown of light upon your head, your hands placed ever-so-gently on that stunning belly as it holds new life. Your baby, wrapped in a soft, light swaddle as you gaze at him or her thinking, "How could I possibly love someone so much?" Let me bundle these memories for you so you never forget.

MY STYLE

02

I love images that are bright, light, warm, classic, crisp, and joyful. I want to capture the raw emotion of the occasion. I want your images to be all about you and your baby. I specialize in minimal distractions, simple set-ups, and gorgeous, natural lighting.

"Brenna was so personable, helpful, energetic yet relaxed, even our skittish puppy loved her and was featured in many of the photos because she's part of the family too! We will treasure the experience and images forever and are looking forward to her capturing more of our family’s milestones in the future (I never thought I’d look forward to more pictures!)

"It’s unique to find a photographer silly enough to make your kids laugh, skilled enough to never miss a moment and generous enough to pour her heart into every session. Brenna Heater does it all. She has captured our family (for four years now!) in an honest, beautiful, candid and creative way. We’re been so thrilled with every session!"

"Right away Brenna made us feel comfortable and gave our little one extra snuggles. I really liked that she gave us directions through the photo shoot of how to pose and where to look etc... In the past with photo shoots I have been nervous because I didn't know the best way to pose but Brenna walked us through the whole process. We are definitely going to continue to use her for our family photos in the future!

"Brenna captured our new family of five in our home when our newest bundle was freshly four weeks old. It wasn’t just an ordinary photography session. It was an experience. Brenna made us feel relaxed and beautiful, and for that, I’m forever grateful! I now have a fleeting moment in time captured in beautiful, tangible images. Thank you, Brenna!

FAQs

Around your 20th week of pregnancy is the ideal time to get in touch to book your sessions. I book several months in advance and weekend dates fill very fast.

WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU TO BOOK MY MATERNITY & NEWBORN SESSIONS?

NEXT

I prefer to photograph expecting mamas when they're 26-30 weeks pregnant and babies around 10 days old.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE MATERNITY AND NEWBORN PHOTOS TAKEN?

NEXT

Of course! I always suggest making the maternity session a family affair. There is nothing sweeter than seeing the siblings with mama's baby bump!

MAY I BRING MY SPOUSE AND OTHER KIDS TO MY MATERNITY SESSION?

NEXT

I only accept 4-5 newborns per month and I will often book several months in advance. Sometimes I will have last-minute openings, but I always suggest securing your session several months before your estimated due date.

CAN I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION WITH YOU AFTER MY BABY IS BORN?

NEXT

I no longer offer family, child, engagement, or anniversary portraits. I explain more about why on my blog. I exclusively serve maternity and newborn clients. They have stolen my heart and my schedule! 

DO YOU SHOOT FAMILY PORTRAITS?

Portrait collections begin at $500 for a single session.
