Brie'Denee Photography is a captivating collaboration between a dynamic mother-daughter duo, Carrie and Brittney. Carrie's journey into photography began during her daughters' youth, focusing primarily on sports photography as her youngest daughter pursued dance. With a camera in hand, she became a familiar face in the audience of recitals and competitions, capturing the essence of each performance. Brittney, on the other hand, discovered her passion for photography unexpectedly when she stepped in to support a sick doula. Acting as a backup for the ailing doula, Brittney found herself at a birth where the client also desired photography. Despite not having her own camera, she embraced the challenge using the doula's equipment, and it was love at first click. Together, this talented mother-daughter team brings a unique blend of experience and passion to Brie'Denee Photography, ensuring that every moment they capture tells a story that lasts a lifetime.
I will devour a pizza or any and all chips and salsa. I’m a wife, mother, forever student, photographer, birth doula, yoga instructor, creative, and anything else I choose to be. I’m the wife of 15 years to Mike and the mother of Gwendalyn, Abigail and Phoebe, my three beautiful girls and Jirard, my handsome son.
I believe life should be fun and full of laughter. My family is everything to me and my world revolves around them. I love the nitty gritty of life and getting close up and personal with it. Life is hard and messy and there is so much beauty in this messy world. We are meant to learn and grow every day. Living life without regrets is one of my ultimate goals.
Some credentials, because they're helpful… I have a bachelor's degree in health education from Truman State University, a certified birth and bereavement doula through Stillbirthday, certified birth photographer through Birth Becomes Her, Peanut Ball Ambassador, birth doula trained with DONA and a 200-hour yoga instructor.
I offer maternity, birth, newborn, family and fantasy fairy photography through Brie'Denee Photography. You can hire me to be your Birth doula through Birth it Forward (BIF).

"Our time with Brittney changed the whole pregnancy and birthing experience. Doctors can be so impersonal and it can be hard to even contact them or to hear back between visits. I loved having someone to text when I needed to talk or wanted advice during my pregnancy journey. I loved her showing us how to prepare for birth and working with my husband, equipping him to be a wonderful birth partner. But even without all of that, hiring Brittney would have been worth it just to have her in labor and delivery."

"I don’t know where to begin but thank you so much for being there for me, giving me encouraging words and helping me get through tough times. Even though I gave in to the epidural, I think that was a blessing and my body telling me I need to get one because things were not right. I don’t think I would have made it as far as I did without you there. You just knew what to do as soon as you got there and just got started right away, even with my nurses you knew what to ask for to help me which I was grateful."
