I have been married to my incredible husband Bill for 15 years and we have two headstrong, beautiful daughters named Zoey and Amelia, ages 9 and 6. We live in Reno, Nevada and absolutely love it here! When I'm not taking photos you can find me spending lots of time with my family, doing arts & crafts with my girls, reading (historical fiction and fantasy are my fav genres), singing along to my favorite musicals, playing games with my husband, and spending time outdoors. 

I've been a professional portrait photographer for almost 6 years and an avid photography enthusiast since I was a teenager. When I started doing professional photography I quickly discovered that maternity, newborn, and family sessions especially fuel my soul. I love coming alongside families as they grow and change and documenting each new stage, from pregnancy to newborns and on into the toddler, school, and teenage years. Your family is your legacy and you deserve to celebrate that legacy for generations to come. My goal is to give you timeless portraits for you to display proudly in your home and with your family and friends. Send me a message and let's chat about your session. I can't wait to hear from you!

am so excited you're here! My name is Breanna but almost everyone calls me Bree. I'm your Northern Nevada maternity, newborn, and family photographer. 


Say Hello »

Breanna was a delight to work with in both our maternity and newborn sessions! She made me feel fabulous at 38 weeks pregnant and truly captured our love and excitement for our little one.
I was even more impressed with her newborn skills, she’s a baby whisperer! It was worth every penny to have such beautiful photos of our journey into parenthood.

Breanna is an amazing photographer, I highly recommend her! She’s able to capture the most beautiful shots, which can be hard with my toddler’s energy and attention span but she nails it every time! I have gone to her three times so far and each time I am very pleased with the photos taken.

Breanna was so awesome to work with! She was very easy going and worked well with my children when they weren’t being the most cooperative. The day we had our session was extremely windy, but she took extra time to make sure we had beautiful pictures! 100% recommend Breanna Elise Photography for beautiful family portraits!
