Meet your Photographer

Hello! I'm Andrea

Who am I? Well I am Andrea! Originally from Sioux City, I moved to Pella and met my husband. So Here I am to stay!! I am a mom and a wife, yes and absolutely. But I am also a photographer! 


But the reality is, that is not just what I do. This career has turned into an incredible passion to bring life and joy into peoples stories. I love those deeper conversations (the scary ones!) because they lead to SO MUCH growth and love and warmth. 


And THAT is what I love to bring to these sessions; Family, Love Stories, Maternity & Motherhood, or powerful portraits of this season you are in (Lift Your Soul). 


Creating albums and wall art to document this incredible season we get to live in, gifting them back to my clients… THIS is me and what I am about. So poke around my page, learn a bit more, and then shoot me a message so we can create magic in your personal story. 

Have questions about your dream session? Send me a message and we can set up a time to meet and dream together!

What Clients Have to Say

“Light and Shadow Photography will be my first choice for capturing all of life’s most special moments! I can’t stop looking at my pictures they’re so gooooood!!! Andrea was so easy to work with and very accommodating as she didn’t mind traveling to my preferred locations. I highly recommend With Light & Lens for a beautiful and FUN photography experience!”
