Lyons loved photography since she was a teenager growing up in South Glens Falls. She taught herself and her husband, Tom Lyons, currently the Director of Community Engagement and Staff Development at Hudson Headwaters, who takes photos of Briana in a variety of scenic upstate New York and Vermont settings – always with her head turned away from the camera so all you see is a flash of her auburn hair.
“I don’t want to be the focus. I want to create a sense of place and inspire a sense of wanderlust. I want people to imagine themselves in the photo,” said Briana.
The purchase of a 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer lent another element to their crisp, clean photographs, and another popular Instagram account to their portfolio.
“Any time we’re driving the Wagoneer it’s an adventure. The gas gauge is stuck on full,” said Briana.
