Tell us a little about yourself!
Hi, I’m Brittney – owner of Silver Pennies Photography. I’m a photographer living near Indianapolis with a for love cameras, music, coffee, and words. An optimist & dangerously sentimental, I believe in gratitude and have faith that the heart of life is good. Also, I am lucky enough to have married my first love and we share three crazy children Ruby, Lucy, & Finley. Us as a family, we love to camp and our golden doodle pup always rides along (usually with his head out the window).
What do you specialize in?
As a photographer, my specialty lies in capturing genuine connections during newborn, children, and family sessions. While I do have a studio, my heart finds its true fulfillment in shooting lifestyle sessions outdoors or in the comfort of my client’s homes. Let me delve deeper into my passion for capturing beautiful moments in everyday settings and explain why these sessions hold a special place in my heart.
To me, lifestyle photography goes beyond staged poses and forced smiles. It’s about freezing authentic moments that reflect the essence of a family’s love and connection. When shooting in natural environments or in the cozy familiarity of a client’s home, I witness a unique energy and warmth that simply can’t be replicated in a studio. The setting seamlessly becomes an extension of the family’s story, fostering an atmosphere where they can relax, be themselves, and create beautiful memories.
Why did you want to focus on that specialty/specialties?
I truly cherish the opportunity to be part of these intimate sessions, where the love between family members shines through in the simplest of gestures – a warm embrace, a shared laughter, or a gentle touch. During these lifestyle sessions, candid interactions unfold, resulting in images that evoke genuine emotions and speak volumes about the unbreakable bond shared by the family.
Moreover, I find that being in these natural settings sparks an undeniable sense of joy and playfulness among children. From exploring lush parks to building blanket forts in their living rooms, the spontaneity of lifestyle sessions encourages kids to be their most authentic selves. As a result, the images captured during these sessions exude a natural radiance and innocence. Reflecting the true essence of childhood.
When you choose a lifestyle session with me, you’re not just getting a photographer. You are also inviting someone who genuinely cares about capturing your family’s story. Beyond mere photographs, the images from these sessions are cherished memories frozen in time, evoking nostalgia and fondness for years to come. Every shot carries the essence of your family’s love and togetherness, encapsulating the heartfelt moments that make your journey truly unique.
So, if you’re looking to capture the heartwarming connections within your family, let’s venture outdoors or create memories in the comfort of your home. Together, we’ll craft a beautiful story that celebrates your unique journey, and I’ll be there to preserve these moments that truly define your family’s love and togetherness. Let’s create something beautiful together!
How did you first get started in photography?
Emotion is the essential element that breathes life into a photograph, transforming it from a mere picture into a compelling story. My aspiration has always been to imbue my work with a sense of soulfulness. This is a reflection of my deeply sentimental nature. With that in mind, I recall the nostalgia of my childhood days when I would carry around my ’80s style point-and-shoot Vivitar camera everywhere I went.
Fast forward to my college years, my passion for photography expanded as I journeyed across Europe. Capturing stunning black and white images. Similar to many other budding photographers, the birth of my first child spurred an obsession with my first DSLR. Fueling my desire to document all the precious moments of life.
What made your photography thrive?
However, it wasn’t until my third child entered toddlerhood that a turning point arrived. I was fortunate enough to have a circle of supportive friends who encouraged me to bravely chase my dreams and establish my own business. The exhilarating process of forging connections with people and creating beautiful visual narratives is what truly fuels my passion. For me, it all boils down to capturing the raw, authentic essence of life. The real stuff that resonates deep within us.
How has using Iris impacted your business?
The adoption of IRIS has revolutionized my business, a transformation I wholeheartedly recommend to everyone. Before IRIS came into the picture, my operations were somewhat haphazard. Contracts were often overlooked and remained unsigned, and my session schedule was chaotically scribbled on a paper calendar. Additionally, my client communication fluctuated, falling short of consistency.
However, IRIS introduced a new level of organization and professionalism to my workflow. It’s now easier to maintain a coherent and structured approach to my work. This neatness reflects in every aspect of my business, from the start to the very end. I feel that with IRIS, I can represent myself and my business precisely the way I desire: with clean lines, personal touches, and a solid connection with my clients.
Ultimately, it’s the client’s experience that differentiates us from the competition. In this regard, I can confidently assert that IRIS has tremendously uplifted my client’s experience. This is unlike any other business decision I’ve made. The impact has been profound, tangible, and truly transformative.
What’s new with Silver Pennies?
Transitioning into this year, I’ve teamed up with a stylist to elevate the experience for my families. By collaborating as a team, we not only amplify the fun for me but also enrich the overall experience for the families I photograph. Such collaborative efforts foster a sense of beauty and creativity among my clients. Reinforcing the idea that everything I do revolves around them and their unique stories. Moreover, in my pursuit of growth and new opportunities. I’m broadening my horizons by partnering with a boutique and a fashion blogger. Despite this exciting venture, I want to assure you that my primary focus will invariably remain on family photography. The love and passion I have for capturing those heartfelt moments shared among families will forever be at the core of my work.
