Hi there! I am Brandelyn, but feel free to call me Brandy. I am a small-town southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. My first love is King Jesus, my wise father and faithful friend. If you find anything in me worthy of your esteem, it is from Him. I am married to my second love. The quintessential total package, he is. If there is another more good, kind, loving, handsome, generous, intelligent, wise (did I say handsome?) man… well, I never met him. Together, we have two baby girls (Claire and Charlotte) who, to my dismay, are growing so fast! They are 8 and nearly 6 and at the risk of sounding like a cheesy Hallmark card… are my heart walking around outside my body. When I am not shooting, editing and designing for you, I am probably cooking, cuddling with my babies or curled up with a good book!
So now let’s talk Photography, since that is most probably, why you are here! My photography career began 9 years ago, though 9 years ago, I’d hardly call it a career! Like many, it began as a hobby, spurred on, uniquely, by my love for painting! You see, portraits of a different media has always stirred my soul. I have a degree in painting (yes, they have those) from the University of Georgia. In a nutshell, it was this love for oil portraiture that eventually led me to pursue a career in portrait photography. And here, nine years later, this is what I do. And I love it!

Your images are located in four locations until they are delivered to you safely. Following the delivery of your images, they will continued to be stored in several locations, one being off-site, until one year following the contracted date.
Do you have another job besides photography? Yes, of course! I am a mother and a wife! (wink, wink) Photography is my exclusive out of home job, however, it is secondary to my family. I take on a limited number of clients to ensure I can continue giving 100%, A+++ effort to every area of my life.
