Introduction: **Thumbtack Courtesy Note: Professionals are charged an average of $10 the first time you message us. Each of us. Therefore, if you're just seeking out other information, not actually interested in/ready for booking, please consider treating us as you'd want to be treated, and try the free route that are our Website's Contact Forms for just basic questions for us. ;) We get no refund if you do not respond, or if you don't book.** Are you a Curvy Woman or you're very Self-Conscious in Portraits because someone LIED to you about being "not photogenic" (NOT a thing by the way ;) ), or you've never had a Portrait captured that you feel beautiful in...or that doesn't make you look larger than who you see in your own mirror?? Curious how BraskaJennea Weddings or Portrait experience is different? Click the First Video or my site link in the image bank above 😉📽📸😎 Are you ready to actually ENJOY a Portrait Session? (Men, especially, this means you ;) ) Then please allow me to introduce myself... I'm your Photo Fairy Godmother, Braska Jennea Givens, and I'm here to try to reverse those photo-hating ways...and show you the beautiful soul God created when He created YOU! I'm the area's only Curvy Posing Specialist (I teach the Art of Posing, Lighting, Angling, even Wardrobe Coaching ALL beautiful shapes and sizes, particularly of the Average American Woman who is a size 16-18 and larger); so no matter your size have no fear! It would be my honor to capture your life today for your legacy long after we're gone. Intrigued? Please read on! :) Now, on to the FUN! 😊 As a Curvy Woman myself I know all of the anxiety that Portraits (especially wearing white) can bring, and it's what motivates and inspires me to capture my beautiful clients, especially Brides on their Wedding Days as they say "I Do" to the man of their dreams in their dream gown. My heart beats for using the gifts and talents God has entrusted to me to bring calm to the chaos and stress to the unruly, beautiful beast that is a Wedding Day, and it also serves me well for corralling large family groups and, usually, getting smiles, and fist bumps, from the grumpiest of toddlers. Even more so for using my Curvy Posing expertise (and my own lifetime of personal horrible Portrait experiences) to soothe the fragile self-esteem of women, particularly Brides, who don the dress of their dreams usually worrying about how they will look in the images after. Weddings are the JAM to my biscuit ya'll! With 18 years in the industry, the last 9 of which have been behind the camera documenting these once in a lifetime legacy events, there's no one you want in your corner on your wedding day, as you don that dream gown and walk down the aisle to your Groom, than me. I don't have a cape, but I've been told I should ;) I love using my own personal brand of coaching and coaxing to even bring men out of their timid, self-aware "man-up" default state in order to relax and capture portraits that flatter them...and capture the love and emotion they feel for you. Portraits that will tell their future generations just how stunningly beautiful and happy their mom, grandmother, great-grandmother was on the day she married the man of her dreams, and tell deeply of the LOVE you have for each other!

Braska has been able to capture our family growing from day one. She was there for the birth of our daughter and has captured wonderful life events since then. I love the fact that she seems to understand what our family values are and is able to capture that with her wonderful photographic skills. I truly wish she was in business when we got married. Her wedding photos are AMAZING!

Working with BraskaJennea Photography was a wonderful and magical experience for me. The images were captured in a classic, timeless fashion and she made it enjoyable. My husband and I were very pleased with the finished photos.

My kids hate to have their picture taken but they love Miss Braska and she is able to capture their real smiles! They always enjoy "playing" during our outdoor photo sessions and aren't ready to leave after the session is over! She's photographed my family for years!
