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 and busy backgrounds. 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 photo heirlooms for you and your family to enjoy lifelong!
am so happy you're here! As a mom of two, not so little anymore, I know too well how exciting and beautiful pregnancy is. Bringing our babies home is the most meaningful thing we'll ever do. I love Motherhood moments, the glow of a soon-to-be-mom, and I'm obsessed with tiny baby toes.
I am so excited to hear from you. Let's get your date on my calendar before someone else snatches this date up!
into my life
1 / 3
I was born & raised in Germany and now live happily nestled in Niceville, super close to the mid-bay bridge, which connects us to Destin, Florida. I am a retired US Airman's 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
Weekends is family time for us: We love Sunday morning family breakfasts and Netflix binge-watching throughout the weekend, especially on rainy days.

I am an early bird and most productive in the morning... but first comes coffee. We're keeping things minimalistic over here and don't have too many fancy 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
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 we did just that. We followed our dream of living on the Emerald Coast in October '21, and so far it has been the best decision ever.

A BRIGHT AND COZY SPACE EXCLUSIVE FOR AKP CLIENTS WITH ACCESS TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL AMENITIES
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.
Membership client for three 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.
Now that you've met me and my family, let me be there for you and yours! As one of the professional photographers in Destin, FL, I spend much of my time on education to improve my skills and fine-tune my photography to serve your family better. I am a newborn pose expert, trained by the very best in the photography industry, and I can show for certification in newborn safety. I keep my tiniest customers safe and in natural, baby-led poses.
