Guide to Columbia Area Photographers


As mothers, it’s safe to say that some of our most treasured possessions are family photographs. New babies, family milestones, special achievements, momentous occasions: we love the opportunity to beautifully capture these memories. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when looking back on the photos of your squishy newborn, or that first picture of your new family. It is our hope that this resource will make it easier to find the perfect photographer to capture the memories you make. We hope you enjoy working with them as much as we do!


The mission of Brandi Blake Photography is to capture family memories that will last a lifetime.  What sets my art apart is the desire to use the medium of photography to tell your family story.  Memories are real moments in time, which unless they are captured, fade over the years.  All of our families have a story to tell, from maternity to birth to milestones, birthdays and anniversaries.  All of these special moments tell your unique story that can be passed down for generations to come, if we take the time to tell the story.

Let me tell your families story, it starts with a picture in time and builds from there!
