What People are saying

Andrea is one of a kind. She is incredibly talented and kind-hearted, wrapping you in a warm, cozy blanket of comfort when you're around her. I am incredibly insecure and never know what to do in photographs, especially with unfamiliar people, but with Andrea, I felt comfortable in my own skin. She’s amazing and genuinely cares.

I’ve worked with many photographers, but none have made me feel as cared for during a shoot as Andrea. I met her online from the other side of the country and traveled all the way to Iowa to meet her in person and have my photos taken. As soon as we met, I knew she would be dear to me forever. This lady is amazing. Thank you, Andrea! 😍
