Let’s bring your story to life.

Hello & Co. is Brent Gilmore, a natural light photographer skilled in capturing timeless, vibrant images of family moments from the extraordinary to the ordinary.

Just a dad with a camera.

As a busy father of 3 — and loving husband to a hardworking obgyn — I know what matters most in life is time with family. The tough part is holding onto that time, especially when kids grow and change so much each day.

Luckily, we have the power to treasure up the times of our lives in pictures. As a family photographer, my passion is helping people capture moments that matter.

Photos connect us to our lives, and to each other. They let us linger over the details of our children’s changing faces, notice all the little pieces of their character, and enjoy the interplay of personalities that makes a family unique.

My family inspires me to capture every moment I can, from the extraordinary to the ordinary. Not every day holds a momentous event, planned party, or photo shoot — but if you watch closely, you’ll see families making everyday magic.

In the bustle of day-to-day life, we may not notice such moments. But I believe documenting real life is one of the most meaningful things we can do for our families.

It’s a practice of celebrating the most important, interesting, and beautiful people in our lives. Growing up, my mother was the historian for our family. 

Now that she’s gone, I cherish the photos she captured, collected, and organized. They tell the story of my life in a way nothing else can.

In my own way, I honor my mother’s legacy by documenting my family’s story — and by helping other families document their stories, as well.

I cannot put into words how much I love the photos from Brent! He was so great to work with ahead of time, understanding about how hectic life would be when the baby was born and absolutely fantastic with our 3.5yo and newborn.

Brent was awesome with our kids (aged 4 and 2.5) and took plenty of time to go at their pace. He delivered many more pictures than the minimum we were promised and we are so happy with how they all came out!
