Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Your little cousin Sophia, looks like an impish little angel. Love the photo! The sweet, playful expressions of kids in candid photos, always inspires me to think about the innocence of those simple childhood days……..Thanks for sharing more wedding day pics, keep em’ comin…..

    I love this photo! I love how children’s hair always gets so loose and wild as the day goes on.
    I love the colors and photos of your website. Just looking makes me happy. I have a question for you…what kind of camera do you use? I love the quality and effects of your photography.
    Congratulations on your marraige!

    thank you for your comments!
    Sharing Rikka’s photos has been fun. She is so talented:::
    Morgan, I’m glad you are enjoying the photos on my site!
    As far as the cameras I use, I usually list them under the photos I post.
    Some favorites are:
    1. Nikon Coolpix 4500 (digital camera)
    2. Polaroid SX-70 (vintage polaroid found at flea market)
    3. Canon A1 (old school solid manual camera, found at garage sale) Sadly, it died on my first day in Italy for my honeymoon. 🙁
    Send a prayer for the Canon!
    4. Currently using a point and shoot called the Olympus Epic. Very inexpensive on Amazon and excellent optics.
    I am such a camera whore.

    Ohhh, a little fairy 🙂
    I am sure she refused to put off the flowers and her dress at bedtime. Such a cutie…

    I have to jump on the bandwagon and “awwww” at this picture. I have a magical bond with the two little ones who were in my wedding (a cousin, 3, and godson, 4). They don’t always remember the details, just that they got to share this wonderful days with us, and that’s quite a memory in itself.

    Someday, she, too, will have her very own George Foreman Grill.
