I believe that portraits have the power to transform the way we see ourselves.

Hey, I’m Andrea.

I’m not your typical boudoir photographer.

I don’t shoot in fancy hotel rooms and I don’t believe you need to be transformed by professional hair and makeup artists to be beautiful. My aesthetic is simple and stripped down on purpose.

This isn’t about pageantry or performance or a half day of “pamper yourself” fanfare.

This is about exploring the magnificent woman that you ALREADY are.

(yes, right now)

When I shoot your portrait I want you to see how radiant you are and I want it to be hard to brush it off or tell yourself “oh, I look nothing like that normally” (I know you’re good at that, I am too).

My process is single-mindedly designed to guide you with a firm and knowing hand toward glimpsing yourself through a clearer, more compassionate lens so when you see yourself looking like a total knockout, you’ll have to admit (with me fist-pumping in the background):

It’s because you ARE a total knockout.

 

What if a more loving self-image was only one portrait away?

“I couldn't believe I was looking at myself. The muscles, the smile, the scars, the strength, the attitude, the confidence, the connection... it was all me. I can feel myself falling back in love with me every time I look at these pictures. I am going to make it a point to do more of these shoots because it has been one of the most powerful acts of self-love. I highly encourage you to partake if you haven't already. Andrea is a magician.”

“I HIGHLY recommend booking a shoot with Andrea. I booked mine a month or so in advance, and I was nervous about what to wear, how to pose, etc....all the things that anyone would worry about! She sent a whole series of e-mails leading up to the shoot with her authentic and funny advice based on all her experience, and she was super available to answer questions. The process was so smooth, and she made me feel so comfortable and supported. I was even able to relax and have fun! The final images convinced me of my own beauty more than anything ever has. She is doing amazing work to transform the way women see their bodies, and I sorely needed it after a lifetime of negative body image.”

“Andrea is a MAGICIAN GODDESS. She immediately made me feel comfortable, had an amazing eye for the types of poses and expressions that would work perfectly, and is just generally a fantastic human. The final images I got from her are incredible despite being so minimally retouched - the lighting is spot on, and the quality of the images makes me feel like a model.”

-Maddy

“Andrea’s shoots are incredible, unique opportunities to get a glimpse of yourself in a way I’ve never experienced. Her process is unique in that she doesn’t push professional hair and makeup on you for an astronomical fee, they’re not five hour extravagant ordeals, and there’s no preset wardrobe to chose from; instead, you have the freedom to select your own outfits and looks (or none at all) that make you feel singularly you and honestly, her gorgeous lighting renders the need for heavy makeup unnecessary if that’s not your thing.

Her mission is to capture your “you-ness” and she does it beautifully, gently guiding you through posing as much as you want and need. If you’ve ever been interested in doing a boudoir shoot to feel sexy, to see yourself in a new way, to take ownership of your body and sexuality, or just for the experience and fun, I can not recommend a session with Andrea enough.”

“I am not sure I have loved a picture of myself so much, let alone so many!”

-Jayna

“As women, we are constantly being told how to look, how to act, and how to exist. Body image is something that many women struggle with and after gaining bit of weight I too had been struggling with my own body acceptance. However, after hearing and reading rave reviews about how supportive Andrea was and how life changing shooting with her is...I knew I wanted to work with her.

Her photography gave me the gift of seeing my own body and my own beauty reflected back at me through such an affirming lens. Not only does she produce beautiful photos, she truly helps you to see and experience your own beauty. She will send you encouraging emails with advice leading up to your photoshoot, she will direct you the day of with so much joy and positivity, and she will send you follow up emails with advice on how to view your images with an open and kind heart.

I mean what more could you want?! Andrea helped me to feel beautiful in my own skin and I’m so grateful to her for the truly empowering experience she gave me. Andrea seriously, thank you from my whole heart. I needed a little something to fall in love with myself again.”

“Although I had never met her before, Andrea acted like we had always been friends. She's cool, she's fun and she's not shy. She will make you feel the same.

You can do anything you want. From professional head shots to your own private kink. She will be on board with any of it and might even be more excited than you are. And it's contagious. She's a gem.

-Jennifer

I honestly want to make these into a billboard!

“It took a lot of courage to step out of my comfort zone and do a photo shoot like this but Andrea helped me feel so comfortable. When I first got my photos back, I cried. I almost didn’t recognize myself because I didn’t know I could look THIS GOOD.”

-Jordan

“I have been on a path toward self-discovery and acceptance, and I was a little bit afraid of how I’d feel when I saw myself, especially nude. But what I see in the photos Andrea captured was my beautiful skin, my shifting expressions, the lines of my curves, my powerful and sensual body....I see a whole person, a gorgeous woman with many angles and sides and secrets and everything else I find alluring. Thank you for helping me to see myself the way others do. I’ll be 35 in July, and I’m feeling close to truly loving myself, including my body.....and you are now a part of that journey.”

The moment you meet Andrea she is like a friend you've known forever. The photo shoot goes by with lots of laughter and fun. She has a talented eye and captured moments where I looked and felt beautiful. The images are absolutely amazingly, breathtaking and I will treasure these forever.”

-Pamela

“Oh. My. Gooooosssshhhhh! This is the coolest I have ever been, thank you for making this real.”
— Morgan

“As adults, it's often difficult to let ourselves experience (and be seen experiencing) joy. This photoshoot was so much fun, and I'm so glad that Andrea caught this moment.”

-Danielle

“Andrea is such a kind and open person. She makes those of us who have a phobia to being photographed so comfortable so that she captures who you are inside and out. All body types are celebrated and made to feel beautiful. You will be amazed and what she brings out of you and into your photos!”
— Sandy
“Andrea is an amazing person to work with. She makes you feel like you are part of the process; open to your ideas and your vision while also helping to guide you and make you feel like the sexiest thing on Earth!

She also shows you pictures as you go along. It really boosts your confidence during the shoot and, for me, it helped me start to see myself in a new light. I absolutely loved the experience and would highly recommend her!”

“I'm filled with such gratitude for you and these images. I've rarely been able to look at my naked body with such appreciation as I was able to with these images. And it was really neat to see the transition for a more nurturing vibe to the badass gothy punk who's like you'll take what I give you.”

-Bri

“I can’t stop looking at these images. It’s like knowing someone is sitting next to you on a bus or an airplane - you know they’re there, but you couldn’t describe them because you haven’t looked at them more than out of the corner no your eye. Looking at these images I feel like I’m finally seeing a part of me that I was always aware but had never looked directly at.”

“To be honest, i think there was never a moment in my life that I thought I am beautiful. However, when Andrea showed me the pictures on her camera during our shoot, I was stunned because the girl in the picture looks just like someone I wish I could be. And that girl, is me. “

-Carol

“Just wanted to say... good morning and thank you. I was on a girls’ trip with a couple of friends, hiking in Banff for an extended weekend. It was beautiful. I had fun (albeit tough and tiring fun).

I also had a lot of moments where I felt physically unfit, squatter, and pudgier, especially compared to them and especially in the photos. On the 3rd day (and basically the last day of the trip), I was feeling disheartened. Here I was resting in front of an amazing view, and I kept getting distracted by my self image and body.

Then I thought of the photos you took of me. A couple of my favorite photos rolled into the forefront of my mind. I could feel myself calming mentally and emotionally. Those discouraging voices and thoughts getting weaker. I felt so grateful. I had to share.

Your photos make one hefty tool in my tool belt.

Thank you, Andrea.”
