Shutter Sisters Book*


I am so honored to be part of the Shutter Sisters book that is coming out soon soon…! It is called Expressive Photography: The Shutter Sisters’ Guide to Shooting from the Heart and is available for presale now. It is part inspiration, part how-to, giving every photographer (professional or not) a way into more expressive work. If you’ve ever visited Shutter Sisters, you know that’s what we’re all about– making beautiful work and offering tips that are accessible to all of us who love to photograph our lives.

I was honored to be asked to write the chapter on portraiture! So you’ll see a lot of my work in there. Also featured are the super talented: Karen Walrond, Sarah Ji, Irene Nam, Maile Wilson, Jen Lemen, Tracey Clark, Kate Inglis, Stephanie Roberts, Paige Balcer. This book is going to be beautiful.

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.
