An east coast gal at heart, I grew up in Maryland and ventured to school in South Carolina before ending up in Orange County. I adore nothing more than  spending the night in with my fiancé Jack and our 3 rescue pups: Hootie, Toffee, and Twinkie. I really wish mac & cheese was its own food group. However, I do have a taste for all sorts of cuisines from my travel adventures.

I started my photography journey with a Nikon camera and an abundance of free time as a 16-year-old exchange student in Germany and haven’t stopped hitting the shutter button since. 11 months later, I had learned a new language and found one of my passions that I’m lucky to now share with so many new people!

In college, I lost touch with photography. Coincidently, my next long-term abroad experience, a semester in Singapore, was when I reconnected with it. The only 2 continents I haven’t seen are South America & Antarctica: maybe one day my camera and I will make it there!

-Brooke, July 2021

"The second I met her, I felt like I had known her forever, which made it a million times easier to just be ourselves in front of the camera.

"Her personality made it for me."
