a girl in love photography


Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide

aundrea . senior photography . part one


We sometimes work as photographers at being consistant, at showing the same thing the same way again and again, that is not what interests me.  It is safe, and it is accessible but it is not what I love.  I love working with seniors to show something about who they are, their quiet moments or their louder moments.  Where they are at in this moment, because this moment is never going to happen again.  Each young woman or young man I photograph has their own ideas of who they are, where they have been and where they are going and if I can help them express those things, even just a little bit, then I am doing what I set out to do.


“The mind I love most must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.”

― Katherine Mansfield,

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
