I'm Brianna. Pennsylvania based wedding + portrait photographer. My hair is typically in a messy bun, I usually have a baby on my hip, and I never say no to cake. I want photographs to feel as good as they look, and my overly sentimental, married, momma heart knows the weight of soulful photographs all too well.

The Eshelman Family

It was literally a zillion degrees on this evening.
She was rather pregnant.
Little T didn’t nap.
J just wanted to do boy things.
It could have been a literal hot mess. BUTYAKNOWWHAT. It wasn’t.

AND. We are both photographers. Both moms. You think we would have this family pictures thing ALL FIGURED OUT.
But life + kids are unpredictable. So just know that even if you *feel* like your session was a hot mess…there are still opportunities for magic.

Be like Addie: be kind to yourself, your kids, and dont stress. Think of the wine & ice cream waiting for you at the end, trust that SOME magic is being captured, and that this is the reality of the here & now of your family.

Can’t wait for this family to be asking for a table of FIVE AT A RESTAURANT!
