Chelsea + off to Hawaii!

My latest portrait session was with Chelsea… isn’t she beautiful? We had SO much fun and transformed a small park into an enormous wonderland with the magic of the camera. I love how she wanted professional shots (and we got those) but we also had a chance to capture so many other aspects of her personality. We made magic together!

I’m headed to Hawaii tomorrow for my 40th birthday trip! and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Matt and my friends and family conspired to send me… I’m feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you Matt and thank you friends!!

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.

    Traveling mercies to you, dear friend. What an adventure. Breathe in every minute of it. Stop, look, listen, smile, rejoice. What a gift they have given you – and now you get to give it to yourself over and over every step of the way -from the minute you step out of your home until the moment you return. A journey 40 years in the making. Wowza!!!!!

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers all week long. I cannot wait to see photos and hear stories.

    Have an absolute blast – as I know you will.
