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.

    One: one earth, one life, one God, one heart, one chance to make a difference, one year–upon another, one sun, one moon, one day after the other…
    …one beautiful baby, too.

  11. Jennifer

    Don’t babies always just have the most beautiful eyes?

  12. Meg

    And it seems just yesterday that we read the post about her being born. Time goes so fast when they are so small…..

    i’m unspeakably drawn to that picture.

  14. Neil

    As much as I love the baby, I also notice the strand of hair of the mother in the background (and the mother being protective).

    here’s hoping you get your own valentina (or valentino, as the case may be) sometime soon. what a stunning photo.

  16. lisa Tomsha

    beautiful photo – love the delicate shadows.
    I’m dying for photos of this quality of my baby, but I live in the middle of Illinois, with no plans to visit the west coast. If you ever venture to chicago, let me know!

  17. Rosa

    I keep coming back to this photograph. It’s beautiful 🙂
