This was the first picture I ever saw of Tom. And this one, right here, is the one that I just could not forget! A farm boy from Kansas. A city girl with a yearning desire to be a high class country girl. How do these worlds come together? Well, let me tell ya. These […]


The Story Of Us: How We Met

The other day I wrote a post on ideas verses implementation. The next day during my quiet time, I was reading a devotion that discussed some of the same things that I had never really thought of before.  There is a Bible verse that states that we should take all thoughts captive. And typically when […]

Dear Bri, I know you are just starting out. I know starting a business can be scary. There are a lot of risks involved. There’s a lot at stake. A lot on the line. But you can do this. You are smart and capable and have done a lot of work to make this happen […]


The First Letter to Me


“Bri did a great job at catching moments where I felt like myself, it sounds strange, but in all the photos that she took I look like I’m being myself and not “posing” which I love. I also could seriously see her light up while taking photos. I love how passionate she is. Bri was so encouraging and empowering. She can catch those special moments of confidence in your photos and that paired with her eye for the editing makes these pictures my favorite pictures of myself!”


“Bri is so good at encouragement and listening! She made me feel so pretty in my pictures and listened to all my requests AND everything I shared with her. She was more of my friend than my photographer! I loved that she made me a personal playlist and we were jamming out to my favorite music and she formed a relationship with me before our session so I felt more comfortable being around her and being myself!! She’s just the best at capturing the candid moments! She took some really sweet pictures when I didn't even know you were paying attention! And those are some of my favorites!”


"Bri is such a sweet person who is very talented at what she does! She took the time to get to know me, and it was a really fun experience. Sometimes it feels awkward when you’re posing for someone when they’re taking your picture, but I felt the complete opposite when Bri was taking my pictures! She will direct you, so you do not have to be an experienced model by any means. I 10/10 recommend reaching out to her, you won’t regret it! And, you’ll get some super cool pictures done!"


“Bri is definitely the best at boosting confidence! After our session I felt amazing and beautiful! And definitely her editing skills and capturing the best photos! I enjoyed literally every second, even in the cold! She was just so bubbly and made the session amazing and I felt like even if I had no clue what poses I needed to do she’s help show it :) Bri is best at definitely making everyone feel comfortable! She knew what poses for me to do and made the vibe of it amazing and fun!”

Kind words from my clients:
