Brynna Suggitt | Portrait Session
“Professional cinema image-taking should integrate, serve, interest, and enhance the story.”
This, of course, is no movie however the art of photography feels like something Brynna was born to do. Brynna thanks for an enjoyable portrait session, chill conversation and make asking for a glass of water look like clips from a motion picture.

Questions + Answers
1. What are your favorite lyrics from your favorite song? I Found – Amber Run “If you talk enough sense, then you’ll lose your mind”
2. What’s the most interesting thing about you we wouldn’t learn from your resume or social media? I’m pretty open with who I am online. All the goofy parts at least. I’m very eccentric and out there. I say what I think without thinking of what I’m saying. I guess an interesting trait about me would be my spontaneity. I do a lot of things last minute without a lot of thought. I travel in and out of the country often on random whims of inspiration without telling anyone where I’m going or why.
3. If money and time were not a factor how would you seek to make a difference in your community? I like to focus on the little things. Sometimes it’s as simple as saying hello to someone passing by or complimenting someone’s outfit. Other times it’s giving someone a moment of your time to listen and respond. In my opinion, all big things start with little things. It doesn’t always require money or time to make a difference.
4. What is the best advice anyone has ever given you? To hold on to my youth. A lot of people take life too seriously and grow up too fast. And while I understand that as an adult I have responsibilities, it’s important to me that I make time to explore, interact and embrace the world and the people in it just like the child in me would.
5. Name one issue that’s a challenge for most people and how do you suggest they work through it? I feel like face to face interaction is a huge issue for a lot of people including myself. Everything is communicated through social media and I feel like it’s resulted in in-person communication being a lost practice. It ties in with social anxiety. Stepping out of your comfort zone can be a scary thing, but personally, it has always benefited me in some way. It’s healthy to challenge yourself, even if that means simply acknowledging the anxiety and doing it anyway.
6. What has been your greatest life struggle and how have you managed? For me, it’s always been confidence and self-assurance. I can come off very confident and sure of myself when the reality is I struggle trusting my intuition daily. I feel a need for approval before I can commit myself to a decision and have trouble with my self-worth. I’ve been getting better. Open communication and allowing myself to be vulnerable with how I feel about others has taught me that I am worthy and valued as an individual.
