Michael & Carina

Brooke is a wild-hearted family photographer based in Salt Lake City, Utah and can most often be found dancing on the street and helping other photographers make meaningful art + businesses that light a spark inside 'em. She'll never be able to go a day without hugging someone and singing. Yeah, her work's been featured in Vogue and Martha Stewart Weddings and blah, blah, but what Brooke really cares about is what she's accomplishing in the name of love. In the hard, hard work of not only feeling love--anyone can do that--but choosing love, within the four walls of her family every day, silently, with no one else there to witness. Because those battles and wins--those are her reasons for creating, and the most excruciating and gloriously joyful experiences on this planet.
