With great excitement and elation, I am ridiculously pumped to announce that the La Brisa Photography family is growing! Today, I have the privilege and opportunity to introduce Autumn Shoemaker as the third photographer of our team! With her creativity, vision and perspective, she has all of the inherent tools of a phenomenal photographer and I feel incredibly lucky that she has accepted the offer to partner with b and me! She is located in the Manhattan, Kansas area and is now available for portrait sessions! Please join me in welcoming Autumn to La Brisa!

Without further ado, here is Autumn and the new La Brisa team!

My first stumbleupon of La Brisa happened when Chris and Brisa lost their beloved cat, and a very lovely tribute went out on this blog. This spoke to my heart through the photography (and my love of animals) and I was hooked. I am beyond excited to be working for La Brisa, and cannot wait for all the incredible trips, fabulous sessions and wonderful people that I know are in my future. b and Chris have been so gracious in allowing me to join La Brisa, and in what they have already given to help me develop the skills I need. I’m super blessed to be here, and can’t wait to get started!
