HEY, MY NAME IS ANDREA
Hiiiii, I'm Andrea, the crazy empathetic photographer behind the camera. I wanna tell you something...
I photograph the shift. The "a-ha" moment. The lightbulb. I photograph those very first few moments where you are exploring the meaning of your true beauty. Those moments where you've set aside all of your titles and expectations, and spent some precious time fostering the relationship you have with yourself. I photograph you accepting and celebrating your truth and your imperfectness.
Well, first of all, I'm a huge believer in walking the walk not just the talk! I take selfies of myself as much as I do of my own damn children! No joke though, it keeps me grounded, and it's an amazing way to find new poses! I'm always looking for ways to improve the experience and selfies are truly a great way to learn!
I'm a woman that understands what it's like to look in the mirror and disapprove of that reflection. To have kind words one day for me and self-sabotaging the next. I have ENDURED. I have OVERCAME. I am a WARRIOR. . My story is far from finished. I have taken the bricks that others have thrown at me, and piece by piece, I am building an entirely new reality for myself. Because I know what it is like to feel alone, I have built a long table, and I'm pulling out a chair for every woman who thinks she can’t. I am the trusting friend that you can turn to. When you wanna feel like you belong, I am here. I have found such a piece within this life-changing career. I feel myself the most when capturing the everyday women and showing them they are "oh so worthy" of this experience. Boudoir is so much more than the photos, it's a snapshot in time to celebrate the beautiful soul you are and to remember YOU exactly the way you are.
I'm Your Storyteller
Over a short amount of time, I have learned that this career did not just accidentally find me, the stars have aligned and I finally see why I graced this earth over 38 years ago. I wasn't meant to be a "Part's Girl" for the next 30+ years... I'm meant to do THIS! I get butterflies on days leading up to a shoot, and the morning of. I'm overwhelmed with excitement and passion. This is so much more than me taking sexy images. I see a story when I capture you. There is something so powerful about getting in front of a camera and completely letting down your guard and allowing a complete stranger to photograph you in the most intimate setting. Boudoir photography is a way to create art and stunning images for you to look back on and love your body and self.
I'm constantly adding to my education in the Boudoir niche. To hiring business coaches and attending workshops. With there being so many leaders in this industry, I always wanna be true to myself but keep myself informed and educated in all aspects of Womens Intimate Portraiture.
