As a fine-art photographer and a mom of two, I constantly seek the magic in motherhood moments and feel fulfilled when given a chance to document them. My mission is to helping busy moms like you get their digital memories made into photo heirlooms they can touch & feel.

Shoot & Share
AKP is your one-stop shop for belly-to-baby & beyond portraits, specializing in custom-designed albums & ready to hang fine art prints. I make session preparation incredibly easy for you by offering a client boutique with flattering outfits for the whole family. My services don't stop with a pretty picture. When working with me, you can expect a complete portrait experience, one where you'll walk away with keepsakes that you will love even more with each passing year and which will outlast the ever-changing ways in which we view and store digital media.
ELEGANT & LOVING PHOTO HEIRLOOMS
PHOTO HEIRLOOMS • PRICELESS
Each portrait session is created with the frame and album in mind. Photographs are precious heirlooms, meant to be given to your children one day. Printed photos remind you of what your babies looked like, how they snuggled right into your arms & loved on you,. They're keepsakes of the tiniest details, which we tend to forget so easily - they're only little once. Most clients earn their digital files while investing in photo heirlooms.
Be Beautiful & Confident
Choosing outfits for portraits can be stressful, time consuming, and expensive. As part of your session experience, you'll have access to the AKP Client Wardrobe with over 100 dresses to choose from. I offer clothing for mamas (size 0-18), shirts for dads (size S-XL), and children's clothing from 3 months to age 4. The wardrobe is optional, however most clients choose to borrow once they have seen the the beautiful luxury wardrobe collection.
The use of the client closet is complimentary.

My husband & I went to Andrea when I had my son in June. Even through the pandemic she was very accommodating! She is by far my favorite photographer I’ve ever used! It was well worth the price. We will def be going back as soon as our new addition gets a little older. Thank you for the memories Andrea!!
Andrea is not only an amazing photographer, but just a genuinely sweet person and fabulous to work with. She made all of my baby girl’s newborn photo session dreams come true and then some! Her wardrobe selection is gorgeous and has choices for the whole family. Such a lifesaver! She also had a little kitchen for my toddler boys to play with while sissy was getting her pictures. Not to mention the album and end products were stunning. I could go on and on!

Not only did Andrea provide us with amazing, light-filled, beautiful images, but she also makes an entire experience out of your photo session. She has an entire wardrobe for mom & child to pick from, she has a toy kitchen that kept my 2 year old thoroughly entertained between set-ups. She also made us feel very comfortable & helped us pose so we looked as good as possible. I would highly recommend using Andrea—she’s worth every penny. High quality products & person! :)
I cannot give Andrea enough compliments. Firstly, she is incredibly personable. Her studio is warm and inviting. At our first meeting, I felt so comfortable and fell easily in conversation with her. She also got my husband to feel comfortable in front of a camera....
... Andrea is a one stop shop. When I was expecting, I was so overwhelmed with information and choices. Andrea gives choices, but each package is unique. That made choosing a package & location much easier for me. She also has a BEAUTIFUL wardrobe of dresses. She has photographed theses dresses, so you can feel confident the dress will photograph well. That was a relief for me.
One Year Plans for Two babies
We first used Andrea for our maternity and newborn pictures. She is the ultimate professional and so easy to get along with. Our maternity pictures were better than I could’ve imagined. She captured the most precious pictures of our baby boy after he was born, and he was calm and happy during the whole shoot. I would recommend Andrea to anyone wanting quality, timeless photos. We have since used her for family pics, a motherhood session, and our son’s one year cake smash session. The pictures from these sessions are ones I will treasure forever. I’m so thankful I found Andrea to give me these gorgeous photos.
One Year Plan
I am located in beautiful Destin, FL, serving surrounding areas on the Emerald Coast. I offer in-home and on-location family photography sessions, and my specialty is maternity, newborns, and baby milestones.
I know you will be excited to see your images! My usual turnaround time is around 2-3 weeks. Print products, albums, and custom frames can take up to 8 weeks for delivery. Album & folios also can be shipped nation wide.
I've got you, Mama! If you are booking a newborn or maternity session, I've got you covered! I provide a large client closet for the whole family, so no need to purchase a dress you may never wear again. There are wraps, headbands & bonnets, and simplistic props available for newborns too. Most dresses are non-maternity dresses and can also be used for your annual beach family photo session in Destin, FL.
Great question!. A retainer commissions me as your photographer, and is due at session booking. Shortly after your session (about two weeks), we meet again for your ordering appointment where you choose & pay for digital files, frames, heirloom albums, or a combination of your favorites. I accept all major credit cards (processed via Square), cash, and check.
