Hey there, you found me! I'm Andrea and I hate doing introductions. I've never been good at telling people about me, but I'll do my best. I'm a spitfire of a little woman and a total hell raiser. Before you book me you should know that I curse a lot, I'm blunt, and I love to laugh. My sessions aren't awkward at all, they're actually a blast. I've been behind the camera for almost 2 decades now and I never stop learning about this industry. I'm pretty new to living in the greater Jacksonville, NC area so I've got a lot of exploring to do.
So what is boudoir? Truth is- I'm not so sure how to answer this question exactly. A lot of people think it's just photos of women in lingerie or nude...and yea, that's kind of it but not really. I like to say that I take your basic, everyday woman and turn her into a badass. A badass, take no shit, sexy bitch to be exact. I give women a little reminder of how strong and sexy they are, how fearless they can be, and what the rest of the world sees when they look at her. I'm your personal hype squad. And as most of my clients say to me- you've been through some shit in your life and this is you taking your power back. I photograph real women, not models.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard a woman say that she can't do this, she doesn't have the body for this, she could never look like those models flooding instagram or magazines. BULLSHIT. Boudoir is for every single body and every single woman. You have a story to tell, I'm just here to help you find the words.
On the fence about it? Trust me, I know that feeling. Sometimes you just gotta buck up and get in front of the camera. Life's short, book the photo shoot. Do it as a gift for your partner, to celebrate a goal that you smashed, or just to have to look at when you're 80 and say- damn, I was fine.
The girl behind the camera is
- short, sassy, and a total spitfire
-swears like a sailor
- the opposite of subtle
- loves Gentleman Jack and coffee, but not together
- obsessed with basset hounds and bloodhounds
- met my husband after I rescued his dog that was hit by a car
- a northern girl through and through
Tell the story of the mountain you climbed. your words will become a page in someone else's survival guide
I not only consider Andrea a fantastic photographer, but also a very sweet friend
