It was as a young child I unknowingly developed my connection with photography. As a teenager I formally, and begrudgingly, picked up a camera in class, instantly transfixed by the photographic process. Time came and went as it always does, and once I had children, I became passionate about documenting the organized chaos in our ordinary days. This has led me to documenting other family's daily lives, something I am passionate about.

I’m based in Kodiak, Alaska, where I was born and raised, and am now raising my children. My work has been selected to various exhibitions and published in a variety of magazines and photography blogs; it can be viewed online at www.breannapeterson.com.
