it's time to create a life you love.

let me tell ya how i did it.

my story...

I live in cajun country, south Louisiana with my sweet husband Thomas and 4 littles! I absolutely love cooking good food, porch time and coffee, and catching up on the latest realty tv! Hey Bachelor Nation!

Most days you can find me in my yoga pants, comfy t-shirt, mom bun on point, behind my computer helping new photographers chase their dreams, create businesses that work for them, and teaching #allthethings in our amazing Brittany Bruce Education facebook group! I believe in slow mornings, long date nights, and girls nights with my fellow hot mess moms! 

My faith is the cornerstone of my life and business.. and being a preacher's daughter- you may hear me preaching truth here and there.. Embrace it. Apply it. And notice the freedom that you can experience in your life and business!

Hey y'all!

This statement changed my entire life. 
I then went home, grabbed my Nikon D3200 off the top shelf of my closet, and started reading the manual like it was the salvation to my soul. (although we all know that's Jesus) From that day on, there hasn't been a day without a camera in my hand, or a week without a beautiful subject in front of it. 

"you can totally do this"

Most photographers you know have been holding a camera in their hand since birth! That may be your story- but it wasn't mine. For as long as I remember I have always wanted to be a teacher. Yup. A teacher. So I got my degree, taught for 3 years, and decided it was NOT at ALL what I thought. I was miserable. So when I got pregnant with the twins, I decided to RETIRE from public school education (and never looked back).

Fast forward 2 years, I was a stay at home mom, had 3 babies in diapers, one income, and I was again miserable. I lost myself, I forgot who Brittany was.. and I was sick and tired of not being able to afford simple date nights with my husband, or a new pair of shoes for myself! Every dime went to the babies, and I started searching for ways to earn extra money. Tried MLMs.. (that was exhausting).. thought about being a fitness coach.. (HA)..
and then..

 at the newborn session of my 3rd baby, my husband watched the photographer take beautiful images with her Nikon camera and leaned over to me and said.. 

My Story

And its my mission to teach other women who are lost, needing a change, and wanting to provide extra income for their family.. to use their camera as a tool to completely change their life
