Hello, it’s nice to meet you.
I am a Jersey girl that married a Southern boy and together we ended up with three delicious children and two adorable labs. Two boys and a girl (and a girl and boy pup). They keep us on our toes, and we love every second of it. (Okay, maybe not every second, but pretty darn close.)
Currently, we live in Stuttgart, Germany. But my husband’s career of being a search and rescue pilot in the US Coast Guard has had us all over North America and now Europe. We met and fell in love in Charleston, SC, then moved to Elizabeth City, NC, Nova Scotia, Canada, Sacramento, CA, Leavenworth, KS, Washington, DC, and Cape Cod, MA. Needless to say, I am a really good unpacker.
I could eat Mexican food every day of my life, I collect coffee mugs and signed cookbooks, have fresh flowers in my house at all times, enjoy a hot bath and a good book, love to cook and bake, and my newest obsession – shooting film with a camera that is older than I am. My favorite smell in the world is my kids after a day on the beach – sunshine, salt water, and sunscreen. My happy place is in my backyard around the firepit eating s’mores. (And Sephora, I really can find happiness in there too.)

You can also find me over at my other website, Baked Bree where I share recipes and stories about my crazy life. I have been lucky enough to call myself a working photographer for almost a decade and love my job more than I can even describe. I pinch myself daily.
I’m Bree Hester and I love families. I would love the opportunity to photograph yours.
