Hello! I’m Andrea! I am a Portrait and Brand Photographer in Cheshire.
I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember! I got my first camera when I was about 10 and I used to take pictures of everything, but mostly horses..
When I finished school I worked as a lab technician for a few years as well as being the baby photographer for a local newspaper. I also completed several courses in black & white photography and printing.
Since these early days I have had 2 children and 3 dogs of my own to practise on! With lots of practice comes the need of plenty of bribes… 😂
I absolutely love creating beautiful portraits, to capture personality and the candid moments! I am constantly working on updating images of my own kids, making photo books and generally catch everyday life as it happens, in short, I try and practice what I preach – capture your story as this is priceless for the future, the kids grows so fast and change so much!
A few random facts about me,
- I am Swedish
- My family is my everything
- I absolutely love dogs
- Big fan of chocolate
- Long walks with all the kids are what weekends are about
- I worked as a waitress in Madrid
- I love reading
- Almost always carrying a camera
- Coffeeshops ❤ (remember those days when we were allowed out??)
Qualification and new for 2021
Last year I joined The Guild of Photographers to gain a Qualification as a professional photographer but also to really start improving my skills.
I am constantly working on my skill set and creating new ideas because to be able to offer the highest standard of photography work to all my clients is my main priority, whether that is family, dog or business clients. Also entering the Image of the Month competition run by The Guild of Photographers helps with checking progress and striving for better results.
New in 2021 is Brand Photography!
Brand photography is a set of bespoke, professional images made to represent your company visually!
A couple of years ago I was asked by a friend to to help her out with some product photography for her website and social media. During this time, the natural step to include more of the business itself seemed logical to me. What are they all about, what are they selling and who are their clients?
I love the process of understanding the colours, tones, props needed. Planning the location of a shoot and how to include the people behind the scenes and the place of work.
We hear all the time how important it is to be visible in your business. Customers want to buy from people they like and relate to. People they trust and share values with.
