This week we chatted with Bri Viglianco, a multi-talented photographer and educator who has made the world brighter with storybook captures of her boys and their furry friends! 

Bri is a lifestyle and family photographer known for honoring and elevating true to life tones and creating breathtaking art of authentic moments as she documents life at home. So much of her work is infused with a clear sense of humor, real life energy and vulnerability, and a magical dash of pop culture which makes each image all the more relatable and memorable. With a thoughtfully refined palette and a hybrid painterly approach, Bri unites indoors and out like no other - she'll have you suspending disbelief with a fluffy white clouds in the den and whisked away in the magic of wherever she goes! 

We beckon you to fall under her spell and stay a while as we discuss capturing childhood, staying true to yourself and your art, and developing your editing style.
