An image can add greatness to an article, it's only natural for the two to go hand-in-hand. My take on photography has always been one of awe and practice. Favorite images behind my lens are scenery and animals and of course, friendly faces of family and friends.
As for me, I am a mother to a joyful little boy, and wife to a wonderful husband. We live among family and friends of the industry we have served for some time and grown to love. I enjoy the relationships that make my job fun!
As far back as I can remember, I've always had a liking for words brought to paper. The careful thought and preparation to bring a cherished point or portrayal to light is fascinating and magnetic.
My words have always fallen on agri-intersted ears. As a dairy farmer's daughter, I extended my love for the agriculture industry with schooling and hands-on opportunity. I've had the privilege to work among some of the industry's top-known and respected editors and publications in the U.S. and internationally.
It was there and then, I decided to incorporate the little red bird into my logo. Years later, I discovered a little red box gifted to me by my grandfather, unnoticeable before, it boasts tints of red with a little bird and branch embossed into the metal.
Since then, I've often seen a red bird crossing my path when I travel to a "job" or move forward with a challenge in life. It's so awesome to see that gentle reminder, a gift from above to refocus and keep moving forward.
My grandparents were some of my biggest supporters in my goal of becoming a journalist. I think about them often! Interestingly enough, my grandmother was always a lover of the color, red, too.
The day the paperwork for my business arrived in the mail, I was drawn to our kitchen window by tapping ... there sat two Cardinals (male and female) on the window ledge, looking in at me. They didn't seem afraid, just resting by the window.
I love experiencing new things! Interpretation behind the lens of a camera can bring those special memories to the forefront for generations to experience. I welcome the opportunity to travel (when motherhood allows) because we are all different in this world and it takes a well-cultivated mind to portray and capture the needs of others.
Andrea is amazing to work with and does beautiful work. She was very patient with my kids and animals and the adults, too. She also returned the proofs to us very quickly. I would absolutely recommend this company!!
We were blessed to have Andrea as the photographer at the Taste of Maryland Agriculture for the multiple years! This 800-person event is very difficult to encapsulate - an amazing job of truly capturing the mission and highlights throughout the night. We highly recommend her for any event!
Andrea not only has a great eye for photography, but is also amazing and easy to work with. She is flexible, patient, professional and genuinely passionate about what she does. Despite juggling a busy schedule, she is just as excited as you are to see and edit them. I am so glad we have someone to capture important moments in our family's life, and have beautiful photos to look back on.
Andrea did an amazing job with my kid and calf photo shoot! Her extensive knowledge of animals allowed her to get the best photos without sacrificing the safety of my child. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for photography services.
Andrea did a great job of covering our Maryland Brown Swiss Invitational show!

Andrea photographed each step of our life journey (wedding and growing family) and did an outstanding job! She was very professional, had creative ideas, and went the extra mile to get the best shots. We will definitely be using her for all of our professional photos in the future.
