Brittney Hogue is a labor and birth doula in the Central IL area. She focuses on supporting families emotionally and physically in labor to help them conquer their birth plans. Brittney also provides birth photography and newborn photography in Peoria, Bloomington, Galesburg, Springfield and surrounding areas.
Brittney was truly wonderful. She was easy, and down to earth, allowing us to relax and enjoy our fresh 48. She makes you feel like you were friends all along from the second she walks into your postpartum room. She moves quick to keep the baby calm and happy, and flexible for when baby decides she’s hungry in the middle of it all. Our baby girl was so intrigued that she tracked her around the room as Brittney did her thing. The photos we got back turned out amazing and allow us to have that fresh few days captured forever. Thank you Brittney!!

Brittney was very personal and positive while taking photos of our new little bundle of joy! She was very respectful and courteous of the situation while he was in the L2 nursery, and helped me relax for a moment and just enjoy my new little one without having to think about the monitors and nurses that surrounded us.

Central IL Birth- Baby- Family Photographer + Film Maker

Hi. I'm Brittney...

and I photograph maternity, births, fresh 48s, newborns, babies, breastfeeding, babywearing, and families in Peoria, IL and surrounding communities.

These photographs are more than a milestone in the journey of your family. They are the pieces of you and the life you are creating to be passed on to your children's generation and the generations that follow them. These are the moments of your lifetime that represent strength, authenticity and beauty. A life worth loving, a moment worth remembering. Together, we're building a legacy to last lifetimes. 

In the past three years I've completed several workshops and training seminars centered around photographing births, babies and families. I also have nearly five years of experience in the health field working exclusively with mothers and with pediatric patients. This extensive knowledge makes the safety and comfort of your family my highest priority. When children feel safe, when they are having fun, that's when we together can achieve stunning portraits.

I have also entered into my journey as a labor doula. I am passionate about birth and a woman's understanding in her own story. Empowering mothers through redeeming births is close to my heart. If you're pregnant and unsure about a doula, doula cost or how to choose who is in the delivery room... let's chat! I want to hear from you!
