Hi – my name is Andrea and I’m a photographer. I photograph people.

I never learned another language or swam in a warm ocean. I haven’t gone bungee jumping or hiked much around the PNW. I haven’t been out of the country, traveled much, or been to exotic places. I sometimes let my son eat cereal for dinner and I have a chair in my room that has a constant pile of clean laundry waiting to be folded on it.

BUT I've slept under a blanket of stars in the mountains with nothing but a sleeping bag and I’ve jumped out of an airplane. I’ve rode in a hot air balloon and I've cried true tears of joy. I've gone surfing, rock climbing, and I’ve flown a plane. I’ve lived both on top ramen and in my car during some college days. And I have the honor of being called Mother. Injustice and hate in the world gets my blood boiling, the thought of a cup of hot coffee gets me excited every morning, and any mention of tacos for dinner makes me thrilled.

I love love, I love telling stories through photography, and I love connecting with people. Documenting memories with photographs matter to me because these are moments we can never get back. Photographs help us remember the feelings we had during that time in our life and those are the moments we now have a little treasure to look back on and hold dear. That is why I love what I do. I love creating family legacies and I like making the web a better place with stories of genuine love. Hopefully you’ll touch base with me and we can make it a better place together.

And maybe get tacos. 🌮
