When you work with me I will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable, yourself and most importantly the beautiful you I know is in there! Being photographed can be nerve wracking and an extremely self-conscious thing to do and that’s why making you laugh and loosen up is my specialty. Besides! If you’re comfortable and confident in your own skin it will definitely show in the pictures. I’m a very easygoing, laugh-at-myself kind of person and trust me it rubs off on my clients. Nine times out of ten my clients leave saying “I didn’t think that was going to be that fun!” and that’s exactly why I love my job because its fun and I get to make people laugh, love themselves, discover a side of themselves they didn’t know they had & most importantly wow them with phenomenal portraits.
Thinking out of the box, trying new things and discovering new and unique places to shoot, fuels my passion. I’m always open to ideas and I love when someone says, “where in the world was that taken”. I take advantage of natural shadow & light to create dramatic flair that will impact an image of you, that will still excite you years from now. I love photographing weddings, the energy, the love, the craziness and emotion never fails to ignite my soul. I love photographing individuals & families because no two people are ever alike. I love discovering what makes you, YOU and capturing it forever as a beautiful piece of art. I seek hidden beauty and depth in the world around me; I’m always looking for the small details that most people would have passed by. I am a mother and a wife and without that experience I wouldn’t be the photographer I am today. Being engaged, then a wife then having a newborn then toddler & preschooler has equipped me with such apathy for my clients. I know when to pull out the bubbles & treats when a toddler needs a little smile and I also have an eye for romance, tender moments, genuine laughs and the joyous adventure of being a parent, meltdowns, frowny faces and all! Take this adventure with me and you will never regret it ☺
I look forward to getting creative with you! -Andrea Parks
