About the Experience

I'm an expert at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. This is an end-to-end experience that starts with you reaching out to me. We'll discuss your "why". People come to me for so many reasons that extend beyond the need for just a picture.
Let's celebrate you and your why. Your weight loss. Your upcoming marriage. Your finalized divorce. You finally agreeing that now is the time to love yourself and celebrate who you are RIGHT NOW. Whatever your reason, you deserve to feel beautiful and confident.

A Brooke Straiton Photography portrait experience includes:

A one-on-one consultation where we design your dream photoshoot.

Wardrobe consultation and optional in-person fitting. We'll plan your wardrobe together. You can utilize breathtaking wardrobe pieces that are available in the studio or indulge in your own shopping spree for this special occasion.

Day of session professional makeover with hair and makeup.

Same day reveal and ordering session. We'll go through your images and select your favorites the same day.

After the session, your chosen images will be professionally retouched and turned into legacy keepsakes that you can enjoy for decades to come.

About Me

I'm a full-time photographer after a long stint in the corporate world. My background is project management for Pharma marketing. The only thing that really says about me is that I am good at organizing people to do stuff.

Back in the day, I was a bartender in South Philly. I should write a book on some of the personalities I met. If you've met a character named "Hollywood" from the neighborhood, you'll know what I mean.

I'm a mom to 3 boys: Connor 22, David 9, and Lincoln 5. My kids now ask me if they should close-mouth smile or open-mouth smile. I have ruined them.

I also have a dog named Roxie and a husband named Dave. The order in which I announce them probably tells you where they both stand at the moment I am writing this. Roxie is an adopted Pit Bull terrier mix. She's a sweetie and hates other dogs. My husband is an Irish, German mix. He's pretty hot which allows him to get away with more than he should.

My favorite show of all time is Game of Thrones...until the last season. I do have a shirt that says "Mother of Dragons" and wear it often. It's fitting in so many ways. My hair is kinda white. I have 3 boys...

I once auditioned for American Idol and the Voice. I cracked under pressure. I totally could have been a star. I still sing in the shower.

My photography work has been described as moody, angsty, and full of connection and empathy.

My friends describe me as creative, caring, strong, generous, passionate, loving, ambitious, clever, sassy, fun, and sweet.

My studio and office are located in Bucks County, PA, halfway between New York and Philadelphia. Don't ask me to pick a favorite city...okay, New York. But only because I went to school up there and have friends in the area.

Now scroll down to enjoy my ever-growing collection of self-portraits...because it would not be fair of me to preach all about self-love and documenting this moment in time if I didn't hop in front of the camera every now and then as well!
