Thursday December 4th, 2014: Shero Brianna Castillo


Meet Brianna! Brianna is truly a light to anyone who meets her! I’ve known Brianna for a few years but I reconnected with her to capture my senior pictures. I could not be more pleased with them! She totally understood the look I was going for and they turned out AMAZING! If you need pictures taken in the DFW Area contact Brianna because she ROCKS.

Brianna is todays SHERO! If you haven’t seen the first Shero post it’s here!

Just so you can get to know Brianna a little better…

(I pronounce it bree-ann-ah, not bree-ah-nuh). Photography is my passion and I feel so blessed to be able to pursue my passion full-time! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to photography. When I was about 8 years old I would set up a mini studio with random knick-knacks from around the house, a white blanket as the background, and entertain myself for hours with a point-and-shoot camera.

I love photographs but what I love even more are the people photography allows me to meet. Getting to be a part of my clients’ lives and capture such special moments that they will look back at for years is what I love most.

In every area of my life (especially photography), I am in a perpetual state of learning. I haven’t reached a level where I think I know it all, and I never will. I love trying new things and am always open to ideas!

Another passion of mine is adventuring. Check out #CastilloAdventures on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Although I live in Dallas, Texas, you never know where I may end up…I don’t even always know! I have strong roots in Minnesota and travel there frequently, often shooting some sessions while I’m there. Tell me where you’d like me to be and we can probably work it out.

What do you like to do in your spare time?:

            I like to spend time with my husband and friends. We like to have people over for dinner as often as possible. It’s our ministry together. I also like to run.

Looking back, would you have ever seen yourself where you are now?:

            Part of me wants to says yes… As a kid I would say yes, but as a young adult I finally got back to what I wanted to do, photography, my main passion.

What’s the biggest lie the enemy tells this generation?:

            I think the biggest lie the enemy tells this generation is to put your value and worth in the wrong things and to loose sight in your value and worth.

Any advice for young girls?:

            Keep your focus on what’s most important to you. You need to decide what is most important to you (God) and you need to focus on that. You need to base everything off that. When you try to do what the world tells you instead of what God tells you, you will fail!

 If you could go back and change anything, would you?:

            I want to say yes, but no. I know that all the mistakes and wrong choices I made, make me who I am. If I could go back I wouldn’t be who I am today. We can’t live life wishing we could change the past. It’s made me who I am and I’m so thankful for that.

What’s your favorite scripture?:

           “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make you path straights.” Proverbs 3:6

If you focus on him and that’s your reference point, everything else will be okay.

           “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

Keep him the main focus and don’t let yourself be influenced by the enemy.

 Here’s a few of my favorite pictures Brianna captured for me!
