I'm in Love. {Behind the Scenes} San Francisco Family Photographer

Yep, I'm in love. And it's not just Dave or Cal this time. I met Matt & Eugene from Marmalade Sky Films a few months ago...I found them on Facebook (a fellow photog posted a wedding that Marmalade created and it was love at first sight). I reached out to Matt & Eugene to see if they would consider using their incredible storytelling skills to create a video for Brooke Bryand Photography. I wanted to create something that would show new clients a little bit more about who I am as a person...what a session is like...and make the entire experience a little less intimidating and FUN! The video isn't quite ready yet (believe me, I hit "refresh" about 2,000 times a day!), but I will share as soon as it is! In the meantime, I want to thank my awesome, awesome clients for saying YES to letting two fabulous guys follow us around for the morning. If you don't know them yet, check 'em out!

- Andrea Ruotsi of Flutter Interiors (don't get sidelined by the work-in-progress...Andrea is uber-talented and can email you portfolio work) - Ali James of 7x7xMommy

And also a huge thanks to my "talent team" (i.e. the lovely ladies who make sure I don't look like I'm coming from the gym and help me not sound like an idiot on camera): -- Erin Brennan of Brennan Brand Strategy -- Loryn Barbeau, a holistic performance coach and all-around amazing person

What went into creating my video: We first shot Andrea's family (7 of them!) and then met Ali and Travis at Lover's Lane (you know I love that location!) to snap a few photos of sweet Abigail. Finally, we headed back to my apartment where we did an interview with me...which...it turns out...is terrifying! I've done public speaking...I've been interviewed on TV...I didn't think it was my first rodeo until I realized it was! Speaking to an audience about a concrete subject is one thing...speaking about myself, it turns out, is a whole different ball-o-wax. So I got gussied up and had my hair done at dry bar (if you haven't been there - GO! It's awesome)...then my make-up done at Benefit (also fabulous)...and off we went. Here are a few shots from "behind the scenes" - I can't wait to share the entire video with you!
