Everyday Stories 

Documenting Your Own Life

My photography journey began when I had my first daughter, Paisley. She grew so fast, I felt like I could blink, and she would sprout two more inches. I began to document all her moments. They meant everything to me, and I never wanted to forget every detail, small and big, about her in those very moments. I haven’t slowed down any and now I have two additional lovely ladies to document as well. To be a great artist, it’s essential to circle back to the root of your inspiration and dive into the magic of your own life around you.

To be a great artist, it’s essential to circle back to the root of your inspiration and dive into the magic of your own life around you. We tell our clients all the time about the importance of documenting the little moments to have memories you can see and feel all over again. What about us? We need that too. Documenting your own life doesn’t have to be a hassle added onto your already busy schedule. In this course you are going to come along a journey with me where we will dive into creating magic in your everyday life in way that is easy and fun for you and the ones around you.

Instructor

I’m Brianna Merritt. I am a mom to three beautiful girls. I have truly found the person I was always meant to be within my children. They are my biggest influencers. My photography journey began when I had my first daughter, Paisley. She grew so fast, I felt like I could blink, and she would sprout two more inches. I began to document all her moments. They meant everything to me, and I never wanted to forget every detail, small and big, about her in those very moments. I haven’t slowed down any and now I have two additional lovely ladies to document as well. I take moments and turn them into meaningful art. Pictures aren’t meant for seeing, they’re meant to be felt. That starts with capturing the real and true moments that don’t require much direction.
