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.

    People actually get to live in a place so beautiful??? wow! Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo- for a moment I can close my eyes and be transported with a pineapple in one hand and a bowl of macademias in the other.

  14. Heather

    My husband and I drove to Hana on our honeymoon 6 years ago, it was breathtaking, these pictures are bringing back wonderful memories.

    Beautiful Andrea!!!! Oh man, this is a perfect photo for a dreary day here in Idaho. I’ve been contemplating moving to Hawaii… it has always been one of my dreams. But every time I mention this, there seems to be some naysayer that exclaims, “it’s too expensive, there aren’t any jobs, it’s too far away from loved ones!” But I’m trying to ignore those people and follow my dreams. Your photos came at the perfect time!

    Sooo beeaaauuutifuuulll.
    I want to pack and leave to Hawaiii right now..
    thanks for sharing the beauty 🙂

  17. jennie

    wow. 🙂 that picture makes me smile.

  18. Anja

    That is just madness. Compared to the ice and snow outside my window, it’s madness. Uncomprehensible beauty.

  19. Jodi

    Sure, rub it in.
    It’s actually nice to see that the sun is shining somewhere…

  20. G-Man

    WOW!!! Wonderful shot!

  21. liz elayne

    Oh how I want to be back in maui…your posts speak to my heart. One of my favorite pictures from my honeymoon was taken on this beach (with the camera sitting on a rock as we posed…
    Glad you are having such a fabulous time…and glad that I now know such a great place to stay the next time we can afford to go back!
    (please, please wave to the whales for me. they are my favorite part of visiting maui…well, and I like the sun, the waves, the drinks, the attitudes of people there, the food…oh you know…all of it.)
