There's nothing better than working with clients who are also friends who are also family who also just let you do your thing while they do theirs. We love these guys dearly, and it was such a treat for me to be invited back into their home to capture a little slice of their life right now.
If you live near Philadelphia, you're probably already familiar with Bri Brant's lovely work. Bri is the designer & owner of Arden + James, maker of handmade bags and accessories that perfectly blend form, function and ethics. Bri recently won a Best of Philly award, and she's rightly had her beautiful bags featured several times over the past year by the likes of Urban Outfitters & local news outlets. While her designs have seen some well-deserved limelight of late, here I wanted to dig a little more into the personal stories behind her business, because her family really is so deeply woven into the fabric of Arden + James. Bri is at once a loving mother & wife, an immensely talented designer and a generally warm, thoughtful and kind human being. For all of us who struggle for balance between our personal and work lives, Bri is living proof that it is indeed possible.
