Weekly Feature | Rein-Jenkins Photography

I know I  (Allison) have said this before...but one of my favorite parts about being a part of The Snappy Mama is the opportunity to connect with lots and lots photographers. 
I almost get a little bummed to have been missing out on some people's work all this time - it definitely is such a lucky feeling to be a part of this incredible community. There is continued inspiration in the talent all around us. Enter this weeks guest - Breanna from Rein-Jenkins Photography.  Consider myself one of her newest fans...you must go check out her work. She has picked the theme {fueling your fire} and said this about it...

"We're barely coming out of the cold, dreary, dead season and we all know it's so hard to find inspiration. But, as photographers we know we must. We need to feel things, that's why we do this right? To feel. Sometimes inspiration just punches you in the face, other times...we must go out there and find it. I want to see what has inspired you! What photos have you taken that have been inspired by something random or something you thought of? I want to see photos that fueled your fire! When you were in a deep rut, what particular session got you excited again?! "

Now -- let's get to know Breanna even better!

Where do you hail from?
I was born in California, I grew up in Crownsville, Maryland and Virginia Beach, VA. Met my husband in Virginia when we had just graduated high school and we high tailed it to Nebraska after only dating 5 months. 9 years later..... 
Describe your work in three words.
uninhibited, free, heartfelt
What is your favorite piece of gear you own, or what are you lusting after?
The infamous sigma 35mm ART, never really comes off my camera. Honestly, I have no idea....I need to do some research. A prism? haha, I like putting random things in front of my lens. I'm really not a big gear gal...I've had a 35, 85 and the same camera for 3 years now and besides an external flash that's all I haul around with my to Weddings, you don't need much. 
What are the biggest challenges you have overcome in your photography?
Looking at other people's work and 'wishing'....I stopped that a long time ago but it used to get me down in the dumps. The moment I stopped looking and Pinteresting....I totally found myself and what I love and I think it shows. You don't wanna always feel like jumping off a cliff...so, just stop it. 
What is your best advice you would give yourself if you could go back to the beginning? 
Pretty much the same as above, find yourself and you will once you stop wishing you were someone else or had someone else's work. Also, be conscious of shadows...that seems like terrible advice...but geez, looking back at old work...there was light and shadows all over peoples faces, bodies...et

Keep your {fueling your fire} images coming in and have a great rest of the week, Mamas!
XOXO, Allison and the Mamas
