How I started..

Hey guys!!

This is my first time blogging but I’m looking forward to blogging a few times a month.

I wanted to just tell y’all about how this passion of mine started. My mom was always interested in photography so my dad bought her a pretty basic Nikon camera.. well, lets just say the camera became mine because I totally fell in love with taking pictures from the get-go.  I started taking pictures at our annual crawfish boils and just of friends. I thought they were great pictures. ha but looking back, they weren’t all that!! I had NO IDEA what I was doing but I just knew I loved it and that was enough to keep me going. I was using the phone editing app, VSCO because I didn’t even know Lightroom was a thing. I was so intimidated because there are so many amazing photographers out there. I almost gave up in the beginning because the self-doubt was real. It has been a work in progress, but I am super happy that I stuck with it because it has allowed me to meet the sweetest seniors, families, and the most in love/ rad couples!! I also want to thank the people that have supported me from the very beginning and let y’all know that if you find what you are passionate about, don’t give up because it can turn into something great! If you find yourself loving photography, do NOT be afraid to reach out and ask me questions. Community over competition is so important to me! I wish I had reached out to fellow photogs sooner. I want to take the time to thank Katy Simmons for allowing me to second shoot and teach me her amazing ways. Also, thank you to Sydney Barker for teaching me some cool stuff too!

XOXO, Andrea
