Behind the Camera

I met Briana of Knack Creative when I was looking for someone to take family photos. Four generations were in town for only a few days. My mother was visiting from Pittsburgh, my daughter and grandson were visiting from North Carolina. This moment called for remembrance. We had in mind a beautiful springtime outdoor photo shoot and as the rain poured, I have to admit, I was disappointed.

Briana to the rescue. She invited us to her studio on Fifth Street downtown where she opened the windows and let in the soft natural light. Her warm greeting relaxed all of us, even the baby, and the result was nothing short of magical. I cherish those pictures.

Over the following year, the universe has conspired to put Briana and I in each other’s path over and over again. And every time, she greets me with that same engaging smile. Even when she is running from one photo or video shoot to another and the time clock is running, she leads with a smile and leaves with a hug.

Working with her on the Hunger event has been a treat. The photos of the storytellers are expressive and true to character. I cannot wait to see the magic that she will capture on Thursday May 9, 2019 at the Mainstage Hunger storytelling event at the Brightside Music Venue. Maybe she will capture your smiling face on camera! But only if you are there to witness the greatness.

Get your ticket before it is too late!
