Hi! My name is Brittany Banks. I am a maternity, newborn, baby and family photographer, living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am first and foremost a wife and a mother to my beautiful young daughter.
I started my photography business a little over 2 years ago now and it has been one of the best decisions of my life!
When my daughter was just 3 months old, I really started to care about pictures and would be on my cell phone editing to make them perfect. My husband one day said to me, “You care way too much about pictures, more than the average person does, you should become a professional photographer.” Our one year wedding anniversary followed that conversation shortly after and to my surprise my husband bought me a camera and all the equipment needed to start a business. I attended Moore College of Art and Design in October 2014 to learn the functioning of a camera and the basics of Photoshop editing. At the time of starting the classes, I had absolutely no idea how to even turn on the camera or let alone operate one.
The classes were every Monday night from 6:00-9:00 pm for 10 weeks. During my time in school, I would take pictures of my daughter to practice and would share on social media. Immediately, people started liking my photos and commenting that they would love for me to capture their child’s photographs. I took on a few clients as practice while still in the early stages of school and shared the photos again to social media. By the time my classes ended, my business was starting to grow and even now, 2 years later I have never looked back!
Newborn photography is my passion however, I specialize in maternity, babies & family portraits also. I honestly will say that I LOVE newborn babies! Every little detail from their unique features of their faces to their tiny little fingers and toes are so precious. Capturing these important details for clients to have to last a life time just warms my heart.
In every opportunity that comes my way, I try to create the most memorable experience possible for you. I am committed to outstanding customer service. I have a cozy photography studio located just off of Washington Avenue and Delaware Avenue in South Philadelphia, minutes off of the I95 highway. I would love to be your photographer! Contact me today to book your appointment or ask any and all questions you may have. I’m very happy to answer them for you.
