Today we’d like to introduce you to Bri Marshall.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I have always loved photography and art of all sorts. My first real encounter with art was in middle school. I attended Kansas City Academy (KCA) in Kansas City, Missouri.
KCA was a private art school. I was introduced to so many forms of artistic expression, from learning to play instruments, to pottery, to photography. You name it, I was allowed to try and create it and form it into art.
My art teacher Kendall pushed us to our artistic limits and encouraged us to think outside the box. In my free time, I began going to art and history museums, art shows, concerts, etc to expand my artistic palette.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I am new to the photography business, but not new to photography. Taking photos of people is something that comes naturally. The business aspect has had some bumps in the road.
Figuring out pricing, filling out invoices, and keeping up with emails, phone calls, appointments, etc. Can be tiring at times. Overall, it is worth it because I enjoy photography.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a photographer. I specialize in portraits, but I also do family photos, events, and pet photography. I’m known for my portrait work and the authentic natural look of my photographs.
I like to capture subjects in their natural state. I am most proud of myself for having the courage to start my business and share my work with others. What sets me apart from others is my passion and unique eye for photography.
Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lesson I have learned is to believe in myself even when in times that I doubt myself.
It took me a while to step out on faith and announce my business. I had to cipher through thoughts of doubt, negativity, possible failures, and the what-ifs.
Until one day I said to myself that if it were not for today, I will never start my business. My friends encouraged me to start my business as well. So, I put all of those thoughts aside and took a leap of faith.
