I know it's already February, but I couldn't go without sharing this cute Christmas card for my good friends, the Oldhams. Kayti wanted to use a deer bust. After I brainstormed a bit, I thought what could be cuter than a little family of deer!?

Warner Family

These two are amazing. They had 3 littles 3 and under! And they make it look easy! Danny and Cait have the most beautiful family.
These are from last month but I'm just starting to get back in the swing of regular posting. Lots of fun things happening lately!


I started doing these year in review's last year. I love glancing back at all that has happened. I have loved working with so many awesome clients and I look forward to a great new year!


If you'd like to schedule a session in the new year, email me at bri@collectedblog.com!

This week I'm feeling extra thankful for my little family! For my husband who works hard for us, but plays hard too. He always makes time to play on the floor, wrestle on the bed or read books to the kids. And for my two healthy, happy babies...I couldn't be more thankful for all the time we spend together!
I'm especially thankful for the many mornings we spent at the beach in September. We hope some day we can spend many MORE mornings there!

Meet Franklin, the cutest little two month old! He belongs to Stacey from Love and Photographs. Franklin was the perfect little guy...happy and smiley for our whole session. I would've kept him if I could!


These are some of my favorite people and definitely my favorite little redhead girls. I love the one of Hadlee with my bunny ears on at the end. Gotta do what I can to get the kids to smile!

My best friend is getting married! I can't tell you how excited I am for their big day in April. I absolutely love Steve too and the two of them together. We also just finished up their save the dates and wedding invitations and I think they may be one of my favorite projects! We took these in our hometown in Pennsylvania back at the end of August.

While I was visiting in Pennsylvania, I was able to meet up with a high school friend, Sarah. Her little girl Amy is just a few weeks older than Collier. It's so fun to see each other in our new roles as mothers. Her little girl has the most beautiful blue eyes!


Sometimes I feel it's a bit cheesy to post how in love a couple was, or how amazing it was to be a part of a couple's wedding day. And then I sat down to write this and those are the type of cheesy words I want to say, because well, they are true. Jen and Adam were so fun to work with...the kind of couple who needs little direction, because they are already sneaking those little kisses and sweet moments that most photographers live to capture. There was lots of laughter too. Like when the groomsmen had to help get the little bugs out from under Jen's layer of tulle. Or as both the mother-of-the-bride and the mother-of-the-groom got crazy on the dance floor. It was one of those times where I left with a big smile on my face because I was so happy to have been a part of something so special. Thanks Jen and Adam!
