Soooo Excited!

I was excited about my session, but also nervous about picking out clothes and making sure everything went well, but Andrea helped with location ideas and overall details to make everything go smoothly.  Andrea made me feel very comfortable so I had fun. I felt like a model!  I definitely became more and more comfortable and confident at my session.  My favorite part was being silly in some of the pictures and trying on my serious face. My Mom loved how Andrea brought out my smile and was so easy to work with.

Fabulous! Fun! Entertaining!

Andrea goes above & beyond to capture unbelieveable photographs! She does this by getting to know the people (and families) she's photographing. We love Andrea, she is caring, compassionate, and has a wonderful personality that can't help but make people smile/laugh. We like the crazy places she took us to, and the angles/poses from which she took the pictures. At the time I said or thought, "Really?" Yet those are some of my favorites and the pictures hanging on my wall that I look at daily. She is so creative!

My Jaw Dropped!

I have been looking forward to taking my senior pictures for as long as I can remember.  In planning the session, Andrea was there whenever I had questions and answered every single one. My photo session was relaxed, with no pressure to do poses that I didn't feel comfortable with or ackward. The experience made me feel beautiful in my own skin, I felt like I was born to be who I was in front of that beautiful camera. When I saw my preview pictures, my jaw dropped! Nobody had ever captured me in the way Andrea had. My photos turned out fantastic and I couldn't be happier.
