Hi there! I am based in Long Beach, California and aspire to be inspired. I love all forms of photography and evolve every time I look through the viewfinder. I love to discover, invent, re-invent, look, feel, touch, and take in all the over-looked beauty that surrounds us daily. In my six-year journey as a photographer I’ve embraced every opportunity. I’ve had the pleasure of doing numerous shoots for the great Keb Mo and feel tremendously blessed to be able to live out my passion!
I love capturing emotion just about as much as I love the expression itself. I’d love to chat with you about your vision for memorializing your life or special event.
So…give me a holler:
Don't be shy...drop me a line!
“What can I say about Andi? The enthusiasm, the respect, and the admiration I have for her is beyond compare.
I’ve watched Andi grow as a person and then find her voice as an artist. This is no ordinary photographer !
In the 22 years that I have been working with the best photographers in the industry, it’s rare that I see one that can capture , I mean REALLY “capture” someones soul the way that Andi can.
I’m reminded of one of my favorites, Paolo Roversi, by the way that I feel that I can look into a picture of one of Andi’s subjects and feel the empathy, the compassion, the love that they are feeling. I don’t know too many photographers that can do that.
Many culture’s believe that a photographs “steal your soul”,
In Andi’s case I like to think that you are hiring her to show you and your loved ones a “reflection” of your soul.
We should all be so lucky, as to see the world “THRU ANDI’S LENS”” August 16, 2012

We were MORE than thrilled to have had such an amazing experience with Andrea shooting our wedding! Of course, we knew she was a great person from all the ravings of her sister, Angela, but we didn’t know how fun, easy to hang with, and crazy creative she would be as our photographer! We have so many truly incredible moments captured…images of everything and of everyone…just as we wanted it to be. Seeing the expressions of friends and family, as well as our own enthrallment and captivation, is a treasure of memories we can enjoy at any moment for the rest of our lives. Andrea’s lens is uniquely inspiring, fun loving and clever all in one. Her integrity, both as an artist and a person, are unmatched. Thank you, Andrea, for hearing our hearts and giving us the gift of your wonderful self, heart and soul! We love you!

“We were just given the disc with all of our wedding pictures and get to revisit that day. Andrea talked to us before hand about what we wanted, and I was amazed with how well she understood the vision I tried to convey. She really focused on capturing the candid moments which I was scared I would miss in the rush of the day. Looking at the pictures, I think I get to absorb more of my wedding than I did on the actual day. I mean, let’s face it, I was just excited to be married. I can’t wait to print these pictures and add them to our home.”
