This student spotlight’s photography journey is full of adventure! She’s a mama of 3 that includes a beautiful story of adoption. After having 2 kids her entire family traveled to South Korea for their third. Not only does she love to travel, but she’s a worship leader, yoga teacher AND thriving photographer! Although she’s happy to sit down with a good book, her family is constantly on the go outdoors. She’s taken the Rebecca Rice Dubsado Mini Course, Flodesk Mini Course and Intro to Minis! I am pleased to introduce you to our Student Spotlight: Brigitta Canfield of Brigitta Canfield Photography!
I shoot mostly families and mini sessions, but will occasionally shoot the gorgeous small beach wedding! I used to work at “The Price is Right” gameshow in Los Angeles, and I am proud to say that I brought in more last year doing photography than my final year at “The Price is Right!” as their Script Supervisor. It has definitely been a RIDE running a small business with all the other hats that I wear (mom, wife, worship leader at our church, yoga teacher…) but I truly love what I do! The best part is that I set the pace to what fits our family.
I started my photography journey out documenting my daughter after my husband got deployed to Afghanistan when she was only 3 months old. I bought a canon 70D, and thought I would start by taking photos of the memories we were creating together! It turned into a hobby to pass the time while he was at war, and has now become quite the side hustle!
The people, hands down! I have gotten to meet lovely people from all walks of life and I love to hear their stories. As a stay at home mom, I can be consumed with my own world of meal prepping, children, kids activities, etc, but it’s so nice to have that outside interaction.
Fully selling out 9 days of minis last year! Also, finally hitting over 1000 instagram followers!
Enjoy the journey and don’t always rush to be onto the next thing! I’m a 7 on the Enneagram, so I’m always hungry for the next thing (especially with my business). I’m trying to SLOW down, and enjoy the wild ride!
