Virginia Motherhood

If it's not already, your phone will soon be consumed with beautiful, chaotic moments of your child. From their first smile to their first big steps - these images will be your cherished memories for a lifetime.

And while these digital images will forever bring you joy, there will always be something Years from now, as you scroll through your phone's cloud of images, your true love story is incomplete.

Those kisses you give for every scraped knee, the safe hugs you offer when they're feeling scared, the laughter you share with them when they do something silly—these sacred moments are missing from your digital cloud. And as time goes on, these beautiful moments of motherhood are at risk of fading away into the chaos of life.

We are committed to preserving your motherhood legacy with heirloom-quality portraits and fine-art photo products - we will help you preserve your true love story for generations to come.

"I chose Jacob & Brielle for our Newborn Photos based on their Instagram. Their portfolio is absolutely beautiful and they truly are artists. But more than that, they are great people! Brielle is more than amazing to work with! She goes above & beyond during the session, even brought me coffee to our morning session, and she has the personality that just makes you smile!" 

"She goes above & beyond during the session"

Jessica Marro

"We sign up for their mini sessions whenever we're available because they are THAT good. The edited photos we receive remind me why it's so important to document and capture your life & family. We both have genuine smiles and laughs throughout each session and everything looks so beautiful and natural because of how much fun we have. I cannot wait for them to capture our growing family in the future :)"

"Booking sessions with Jacob and Brielle is always the best experience"

Samantha Randall

"How do I give Jacob and Brielle more than 5 stars?! - as photographers and people! They are the absolute best! I love how passionate they are about their work, they are very professional and extremely accommodating! I have a two year old daughter that has only been around them a handful of times but they make her feel so comfortable in front of the camera! I almost cry every time they send back a gallery because I love it so much, I can't recommend them enough! "

"You won't be disappointed trusting these two with your precious moments!"

Victoria Buchanan

"My husband is very shy & typically doesn't interact during the photo shoots I force him into, but with Brielle he opened up and actually had a FUN time! They also have a picture turn around time that shows just how dedicated they are to their work. I could brag about Jacob & Brielle Photography all day!"

With love and sincerity,

Hello, wonderful momma! My name is Brielle, and I'm delighted you're here. As Jacob's wife and a girl mom x2, I've experienced the incredible journey of motherhood, filled with both highs and lows.

The beauty of motherhood extends far beyond maternity, and I want to help you preserve those precious moments as your children grow and evolve.

Growing up in a divided family, I don't have many tangible memories like family photos. Now that my dad is gone, I wish I had more of those cherished mementos. I also understand that the journey to motherhood isn't always smooth or as planned. In 2020, my husband and I experienced the loss of our first child—a heart-wrenching reminder of how precious life truly is.
Despite facing numerous complications during my pregnancies, becoming a mom was my lifelong dream. When our daughter Isla was born in 2021, I began to truly appreciate the profound bond between a mother and her child, particularly as they grow and change. My own journey inspired me to capture these fleeting moments in others' lives through my photography.

No matter the imperfections or challenges you've faced on your path to motherhood, it's an experience worth treasuring and celebrating, especially as your children grow. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a mother, and I hope my photographs help you honor these special moments in your life as your family blossoms.
