My name is Bre and I’m a 27 year old photographer, wife, mother, and a few other things as well. I married my soul mate, William, in 2005. We are the lucky parents to a beautiful 4 year old boy. Reid is the love of our lives and brings more joy than I could have ever imagined. He is spunky, strong-willed, cuddly, inquisitive, kind, and has his daddy’s big nostrils and long legs. He is perfection.
I shoot with Canon equipment for no other reason than I was impulsive and just chose it. It works beautifully and I’m happy with my choice. A lot of people ask what camera I use. The answer? Canon 5D Mark III. In my bag? 35 1.4L, 70-200 2.8L, 85 1.8, 24-70L.
I love photography because it fills my days with beauty and emotion- not that I don’t have enough of that already, but why not have even more?
I am bossy. I cry easily, but rarely in front of anyone. I am patient. I am adventurous. I love change. I wish it was 95 degrees 365 days a year. I buy packages of edamame from Trader Joe’s at least 15 at a time. I love to dance. I am a dog person. I put Beavis & Butthead Do America on my list of top 5 favorite movies ever. Shopping makes me happy, even if it’s just for groceries. I love the smell of boat exhaust, sunscreen, and barbeques. I don’t take myself too seriously and I don’t like photographers that take themselves too seriously. I’m self-taught. My bedroom is in a constant state of tornado-ness (but the rest of my house is clean!) I gained over 50lbs when I was pregnant with my son and I miss every ounce of it. I’m addicted to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Words with Friends. I was a cheerleader in high school which I assume was my own sick way of overcoming my extreme shyness as a child. I love Starbucks dates with my friends and clients. I am adventurous and dare I say it, courageous. I talk and laugh too loud when I am nervous or excited. I can’t stand being bored so I take on a few too many things at once in order to stay busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love my life and when I really think about it, my heart races as I marvel at just how blessed I really am.
…’tis all for now!
