From the joyous celebrations of weddings, to the precious moments of welcoming your first child, and even witnessing that child take their first steps and eventually embark on their own journey, every step of the way holds significance. Having a legacy photographer who not only knows you but has also been a part of your journey becomes a priceless investment. They have witnessed your growth, captured your most cherished moments, and become a true friend along the way. Those photographs serve as a timeless reminder of the love, laughter, and growth you have experienced as a family throughout the years, so you can relive those memories and pass down your legacy to future generations.

The journey of your life is filled with countless moments, memories, and milestones that shape who you are. 

I strive to bring people together with laughter, and connect with my clients by getting to know them during our time together. 

I started this business in 2015 with the goal in mind to just capture what I was hired for, meaning if I was booked for a wedding I photographed that wedding. Same goes for a family session or a newborn session, I believed I would do the job and go about my life. But what I didn't expect to happen is that I became invested in documenting my clients family history. The moment I am hired on for a clients wedding I am already picturing working with them 5 years later, for family photos with littles running at their feet as the sunsets behind them. 

 As the years go by, I am thrilled to continue the journey with my clients as their families grow. From yearly family photos to maternity shoots and newborn sessions, I am there to capture the milestones and tell their evolving story- their legacy. It brings me crazy amounts of joy to see families grow and to be a trusted documenter of their journey. No matter what stage of life you're in, I am genuinely excited to meet you and capture the unique story of you. Every person and every family has a story worth telling, and I am here to ensure that those stories are beautifully preserved for generations to come.

What's up? I'm Brittany – a mother of two, with the loudest laugh in the room, chasing sunsets + a good book. 


I cannot say enough good things about Forgette Photography! My husband and I have hired Brittany on three occasions now, and I’m confident that we’ll be seeking to hire her for every photo occasion. She makes the whole process incredibly easy & comfortable, from styling advice, to selecting a location and guiding you with effortless poses at the session. I never knew I could feel this comfortable and confident in having photos taken until working with Brittany. But she makes us feel and look beautiful. And I couldn’t have imagined how much my husband would enjoy working with her, too (he enjoys the process as much as I do!). Brittany perfectly captures us and our relationship, and makes us feel great while doing it. She will always be our go-to photographer and I can’t recommend her enough!

Brittany has been our family photographer for years! From the beginning she helps answer all of your questions or concerns, like the locations, how she pictures the photoshoot would go, what to wear, how to pose, etc. She LITERALLY takes care of all that! During the photoshoot the time goes by so quickly because everybody is involved and having a great time, there's no stress on how to pose or what to do. Her guidance and personality makes anybody smile, makes you feel like it was an effortless shot

Rachena Rang

much we love and recommend Brittany! She has taken our photos on several occasions over the last few years and we leave each time raving about how amazing she is. She is fun and welcoming, she works quickly, she will get down and roll around playing with your children to get a smile all while somehow managing to get the perfect shot. She has photographed some of the most special moments of my life and delivered back to me more than I could have asked for each time. We are constantly trying to sell her to our friends or even strangers that mention they need family photos. I could never recommend her enough

Brittany is an incredible photographer and an even more amazing person! She took our beautiful engagement photos at the beach and captured our relationship and personalities so well. Our wedding was on the hottest day in Oregon history and she was unbelievable! She was able to capture the beauty and love in a very stressful, hot, behind schedule day! She not only took incredible photos of my very large bridal party and family, but she helped calm me all day and stepped up and filled roles that she didn’t have to! Brittany even helped me into my wedding dress and helped dab my sweat all day so it wouldn’t show in photos. She was able to get all of our young kids and toddlers to smile and laugh and got the best photos! I know our wedding day would not have been so wonderful if it wasn’t for her. We don’t live super close but I will happily go the distance to continue having Brittany capture our family through the future

Brittany has photographed some of my biggest life moments thus far! She's done our engagement pictures, wedding, next day bridal shoot, and even our new puppy! I would recommend her ten times over, and have friends and family. She's great to work with, she has a wonderful way of making you feel comfortable because god knows not everyone likes getting their picture taken (my husband included) but she has a way of making you laugh and capturing these amazing pictures that make me smile over and over again. I am so glad I've had her by our side through some big moments, and we can't wait to keep adding to our collection of memories by having her photograph them

Mamma, do me a favor, open up your phone and see how many images you have in your camera roll, and look how many photos you have with your kids that are print worthy. For me a lot of the images of me with the kids are blurry, at an odd angle and lazily taken […]
