Thanks for stopping by! I’m Brittney Kluse - an award-winning, nationally published lifestyle photographer in the sunny, eastern corner of Washington state.
To the photography industry, I’m best known for my bright-and-bold imagery; but to my family and friends, I’m best known for my inability to do laundry and dishes.
I’m proud to have been voted my region’s BEST PHOTOGRAPHER since 2013. I’ve evolved my vibrant and loud style to match my equally-as-loud voice. If you dig my style, I’d love to share my talent with you! Hope to see you on the other side of my lens...

"Fun, creative, outgoing, hard working, your daughter's personal champion of beauty - that is Brittney Kluse! Both of my daughters loved their time with Brittney; each having a unique and "made for their personality" photo shoot! Brittney took time it get to know my girls and was able to capture their personalities in beautiful keepsakes that will last a lifetime!"
"Have you ever wished, for just a moment, that you could freeze time? That is where our family's relationship with Brittney Kluse comes in. From our very first session we were hooked. She captures the beautiful moments in our family life for us to cherish forever. Her photographs alone speak volumes but you also get the professional, energetic, and engaging personality that is Brittney. Our children have loved her from the start. From newborn photos, to bedtime routines, to first days of kindergarten we have let Brittney into our life and never regretted a moment. We love her perfectly imperfect sessions to capture real life, the styling and energy she puts into her mini-sessions, and the full sessions that the entire family looks forward to. Even the photo shoots themselves are great memories and leave our kiddos asking "When do we get Brittney pictures again?!"
"Brittney always talks about how she vicariously lives here life through us as senior models, but the truth is ever since the day I met her, I have vicariously lived my life through her. She is not just a talented photographer, capturing perfectly imperfect moments, but she has been an amazing life mentor to me as well. I have truly learned that over the past 21 years, life will give you way more than you are expected to be able to handle. Brittney has taught me; whether she knows it or not, to live everyday to the fullest no matter what challenges you may face. I hope that someday I am at least half the person she is, as a wife, a friend, and a mom. I couldn't be more thankful to have been blessed with such a fun and supportive person in my life!"
"Brittney was so much fun to work with during our perfectly imperfect photo shoot. Brittney’s energy and enthusiasm made the photo shoot so much fun for our three kids. By the time she was finished, the kids were having such a good time they hardly noticed they were taking pictures! We will always cherish the moments Brittney captured of our family in our new home! Thank you Brittney!"
"Brittney's one-on-one mentoring session was life changing for my business. I was floundering trying to keep my passion for my business alive, in addition to balancing my home duties as a wife and mom. Brittney's workflow coaching helped change my business! She taught me her precise camera settings to get my images perfect SOOC. She reduced my editing time to under a minute per image. And gave me an entirely new workflow to minimize time on my computer and maximize time with my family. I'm finally working less and making more and it's all thanks to the three hours I spent with her! It's not just mentoring - it's an INVESTMENT in your business!"
Things happen! Especially as we continue to deal with Covid-19. As far as sickness, let me know as soon as possible and we can get your session rescheduled to another day. As far as weather goes; that’s something I watch very closely as we approach your session date. If I feel it will interfere with the quality of the session, I will be the first to advise switching to another date!
Yep! Travel rates apply for business outside of 99352, 99301 and 99336… CONTACT ME directly and we can discuss the details and get you a custom quote!
I’m a Nikon gal! I primarily shoot with my Nikon D850, SB800 flash; as well as Nikkor’s 85mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, and 35mm f/1.4, 24mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/2.8, and a fisheye.
The short answer is YES! MINI sessions are priced at rates inclusive of time + digital images (aka JPEG files). Digital images are not included in the FULL session fee. With FULL sessions, all digital images, prints, products, and more are sold separately during the in-person ordering appointment 2-4 weeks after your session date.
I offer SIGNATURE (full) sessions and MINI sessions. A SIGNATURE session is a customized photoshoot experience from beginning to end. Session fees are $375-$450 (depending on which session type you choose and how many locations/outfit changes you want.) Portrait collections and a la carte boutique products (i.e.: digital images/prints/products) are sold separately; there is a $595 minimum order on all SIGNATURE sessions. MINI sessions are all-inclusive of a limited amount of time/location/digital images and begin at $450.
If you’re not sure what you need, I will work with you to understand your specific request and recommend the best option for you!
Sessions are scheduled during a very precise time of day based on the type of session you are requesting. Light can vary greatly depending if we are indoors, outdoors, in a field, or next to a building! Generally, my sessions are scheduled in the late-afternoon/evening hours of the day. For example, in June, depending on that day’s light, we may start a session at 7:00pm; in December, depending on the day’s light, we could be starting a session at 2:00pm). Newborn and in-home sessions are best in the mid-late morning.
No worries! You’ll receive a detailed questionnaire to fill out so I can better understand all your needs! Then we will get together (phone or in-person) for a consultation prior to your shoot to sort the details. I like to help you decide on a location first, then help you choose the outfits/colors that best compliment the location and you!
My advice is book early! The busy season tends to be May-December. After you CONTACT ME, I’ll send you investment options; once you’ve picked a date I’ll send you a client agreement/deposit request to officially reserve your date.
