When photographing families, I keep things light & easy to let the honest moments shine. While making sure that you look your best during your session (Hello, studio wardrobe), I focus on the natural connections you share with your family rather than on forced poses, busy backgrounds, and 1, 2, 3 smiles.
am so happy you are here! As a mom of two not so little anymore, I know too well of the anticipation & beauty that lies within pregnancy and how meaningful it truly is to bring a baby into this world.
My business model allows me to walk you through the session-making process, and I do all of the hard work while you can enjoy the experience - together, we design a fun session and capture your heartfelt memories.
After your session, I don't leave things up to you either. I am here to help you choose your favorite images and design the most beautiful heirlooms for you and your family to enjoy lifelong!
SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST to handle your new baby. DOUBLE CHECK.

the power of people
Life's sweetest moments are the ones spent with the ones you love most, and the people you surround yourself with have a greater impact on your outlook than you will ever know.

From Sunday morning coffee and family breakfast, to summer nights spent at Destin Harbor Boardwalk nothing brings family together quite like tradition.

I was born & raised in Germany and now live happily nestled in the middle of Destin, Florida. I am a retired US Airman wife, and I am still thanking my lucky stars that Adam asked me out to be his girlfriend back when he was stationed in Germany. Experiencing life together has been a big adventure and the best thing happening to me. We have two beautiful children who are way past the newborn stage. I miss them being babies so much.
My whole Heart
Life with My Family
Weekends is family time for us: We love Sunday morning family breakfasts and Netflix binge-watching throughout the weekend with our grandma-dog Joy, especially on rainy days.

I am an early bird and most productive in the morning... but first comes coffee. We don't have many luxury items around the house, but our coffee maker is one with a touchpad and a Lovie-setting (Adam lovingly calls me that from pretty much day one) for the most delicious espresso with a ton of organic, frothed milk. So give me one of those, and I go, go, go.

Long walks on white, sandy beaches speak to my soul, I prefer not to go into the water unless I can see the ground, but I love the feel of the sand under my feet, and looking out for shells & dolphins. People watching is one of my favorites. I could sit in my beach chair all day long, wondering what people are all about.
Winter Beach Vibes with my favorite person
The Beach - sandy feet & tousled Hair
I'm a firm believer that any problem can be solved at the beach. My biggest dream was always to live with my family in a coastal town near a pretty beach, enjoying breathtaking sunsets on a daily....... and I will do just that starting in October 2021, when my family moves to Destin, FL.
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.
