Hey there! I’m Brittani and I’m your photographer 🙂
First off, I’m the mother to two super cute boys who make my world go ’round and I’ve been married to my handsome husband for 8 years now. When I’m not doing photography you’ll find me hanging out with my kiddos, absorbed in a book, baking mountains of cupcakes or re-watching the entire Supernatural series for the third or fourth (okay or fifth) time! 😉
I’ve just recently gotten into working out and holy whoa do I love it! Which is a huge shock to me, because I hate to sweat! Who knew?
I love to laugh and when I do, I do it loudly! I’m very blunt and honest – to a fault you might say! I tend to use way too many exclamation marks and smiley faces and I absolutely LOVE gifs and memes. I think I could make a killing working as a gif and meme creator. That’s a thing right? Seriously. O_O <- my wide-eyed serious face.
I cry at almost every commercial that has just the slightest bit of emotion involved in it. I’m constantly hiding my face or trying to pretend I wasn’t just weeping at the darn Campbell’s soup commercial! If there was a shaking fist emoji, I’d insert about a dozen here now…
I was born and raised in St. Augustine, Florida and I know the words to every Disney movie, including the songs. Correction: most importantly the songs!
I feel an overwhelming desire to help people and when I see or hear of someone in need, I immediately start brainstorming how I’ll be able to help them…I’ll often fantasize about winning the lottery so I can just surprise people with gifts.
My husband, of course would freak out if I just started throwing money at everyone. (There’s a gif for exactly what I’m describing right now, by the way…) Did I mention I love gifs and memes? 😀 Also, have I mentioned my love for the show Supernatural? 😀 Yeah..
I know a lot of photographers that first fell in love with photography at a super young age; their dad or grandparent gave them a really old film camera and encouraged them from the beginning to follow their dreams. I really love reading those stories. I wish mine were like that. They always make me cry, ha. (see above..haaaa) But honestly, for me? It wasn’t until I was around 14 that I got into photography. I wish I had a cool story buuut I don’t 😉
I was on my way home from a youth camp and while on the road, I had spotted some clouds that reminded me of eagles. I grabbed my super awesome Kodak disposable, wound it up and snapped a photo right through the windshield. I had no way of knowing how it would turn out..it was just a simple wind, click and hope for gold! Once I’d had the film developed and found the picture, I knew my Nanakins was going to flip for it!
So after tucking it into a small frame and presenting it to her, that was the moment I realized “Hey, this feels awesome!” taking a photo that moves someone to tears with love and gratitude? Pshhh, yeah sign me up for that! I could definitely get used to that 😉 So my start into photography was a selfish one…I wanted to feel good by delivering images that made people cry. That’s okay, right? 😉
I remember growing up in a single-parent household. Pictures were not something my mom could afford. I think I remember having my photo taken once or twice? But that was it! The rest of the photos you’ll see of my brother and I when we were growing up were simple snapshots here and there and the occasional awesome school photo. Boy, did I look handsome! 😛 Not that we (my mom and I) don’t love and appreciate those, because I’m so happy I have them to look at and show my little boys! But looking at them made me realize that photography isn’t something that everyone can afford. I wanted to be able to offer quality photography that everyone could afford.
