From Our Editors
Brandi Dalhouse—the artist for whom B House Photography is named—has learned much about her craft in the 17 combined years she has spent practicing photography, digital photography, photo manipulation, and photo enhancements. Above all, she has come to understand that the best pictures are those that capture us with our guards down, engaging with our surroundings rather than with the camera. This proves especially true for children and their families; it’s hardly a coincidence that these are Brandi’s favorite subjects. Her wide-ranging portfolio will attest, however, that she also has plenty of experience capturing teens, brides, and pregnant mothers.
As one might expect from someone who places more of an emphasis on her clients than on her own camera, Brandi begins each shoot with a discussion of goals and desired outcomes. The informal tone of this discussion carries over into the photo sessions themselves, which take place at locations of her clients’ choosing, whether on a favorite playground or in front of an ex's toilet-paper-draped house. Within 2–3 weeks after the session, clients can receive a fully edited CD with high-resolution images, as well as a print release for sharing their photos with family and friends.
