About Brista

Hey! Hey! Hey!

I am a Mommy to two awesome little boys, Drew and Dylan. And wife to one basketball fanatic husband, Justin.

And now….one baby on the way expected to arrive September 17, 2017.

That, my friends, is my official life tagline.

I have grown up in Southern Illinois all my life. My family is by far the most important thing to me in the world. They are my #1. They are my best friends. I live/breathe/sleep my family. I am so in love. Some say “obsessed”, but it’s a good obsession. 🙂

I have a love for the rapper, Nelly, like no other. I have a horrible obsession with reality TV, mostly The Real Housewives and I mean ALL of them. Annnnddd well let’s just face it…any kind of reality TV is recorded on my DVR. Some have a terrible addition to coffee. I, on the other hand, have a terrible addition to fountain coke. Not just any fountain coke, a McDonald’s fountain coke in a styrofoam cup. It is what keeps me going! Ask the husband, it is bad. And lastly, I am an Accountant by day.

But my night? Photography is my game.

I have loved loved loved photography since I can remember. I can still remember to this day developing my very first picture in the Jr. High darkroom.

Photography has always been big in my family. I remember those big ol’ cameras in my face when I was little. It was annoying as a child, but now I am so thankful and cherish those pictures with everything I have.

Something about capturing sweet, awesome, loving moments between families gives me so much happiness.When I capture that moment I get so excited and giddy and it gives me sooo much joy to know that I just created something that the family can cherish forever.
