ABOUT BRI COSTELLO
Currently residing in Sugar Land, TX, just outside of Houston, I enjoy most spending time sinking in to my family at home or while traveling. We are James, Rafferty (6), Isla (4) and Sonny (1). The hat I wear most usually these days is that of "Mom," but my curiosity keeps me plugged in to the art of documenting.
I approach photography through the lens of experimentation, observation and authenticity--perhaps my own humbling journey in motherhood has informed my palette for all things real, yet divinely mysterious.
It is my core belief that our existence is sacred--our bonds and relationships, divine.
The very ability to step in to someone's world, observe and capture it, is an incredible honour, and one I do not take lightly.
As a portrait photographer with an fashion/editorial perspective and documentarian's approach I find myself deeply fascinated by the vulnerability of humanity. I am a more gentle observer than I once was--leaning in to the cathartic process of self-discovery and expression that unfolds before me. My work often documents my subjects experiencing an emergence of parts of themselves and their own beauty, hurt, healing, joy and strength in the process.
It is on this journey that I find we can create the most authentic expression of self--telling a story of us that reaches beyond our physical existence, exposing the core of what makes us who we are.
Shifting recently from a world of fashion photography + studio work and back in to the hearts and homes of business owners and families has been a natural passage as my perspective has evolved. I now mostly work with commissioned families and brands looking to create art in their own life and work.
Thank you so much for being interested in this work I cannot leave. Hope to chat more soon.
One of my greatest indulgences in this industry is getting to know other photographers, and then having them document my family. Grateful for the work of Natalia Kharitonova, Paige Newton, Jenn Campbell, Liz Looker and Trina Cary.
