I am a photographer who is in love with the stories that pictures tell. The emotion and memory behind every image is captivating to me. I grew up with two parents who never put their cameras down, and I’m so thankful for that!

About Andrea


I spent five years as a OB/GYN sonographer at Magee-Women’s Hospital of UPMC in Pittsburgh. It was intense at times, but every second was worth it. 

My professional life began in medicine.

Our son is 5 years old, and he is a total ray of sunshine! He has the sweetest heart, and he loves making people smile. Our daughter is our surprise miracle! She is 2 years old, and always making us laugh. She completes our family!

We battled infertility and won!

I like that there’s always something to do in a city, but I definitely prefer the country over the city. We love traveling and going on new adventures. Our favorite family trip was to Glacier National Park in Montana and Banff National Park in Canada! Seriously, breathtaking. 

I'm always outdoors.

Some facts about me

 All week I look forward to lazy Sundays with my family when we go for a hike or snuggle on the couch and just spend quality time together. 

I live for Sunday cuddles.

We have two Golden Retrievers named Laney (10) and Abbey (8). They are the sweetest and we adore them, but they aren’t the smartest dogs we’ve ever met! 

We are total dog people.

Working both in medicine and now photography have really allowed me to connect with some amazing people! I love sharing stories and creating new friendships. 

I love meeting new people.

This book has been a dream come true! I am so thankful for the families willing to share their stories with me, and I am forever grateful to the beautiful Heart Warriors in this book who have graciously allowed me to share their stories of bravery and strength. 

I'm so excited that this book is finally out in the world! All proceeds from books purchased will be donated to The Children's Heart Foundation. 

"Scars Are Golden"

I am officially a published author!

Jen, the owner of Hide and Seek Prenatal Peek, has blessed me with the opportunity to utilize her beautiful studio located at 610 Willowbank St. Bellefonte, PA 16823. I primarily use this space for Newborn and First Year photography; however, I sometimes offer in-door seasonal mini sessions which are posted on my social media pages throughout the year. 

For newborn and first year sessions, I have a wide variety of blankets, swaddles and props to make the session specific to your vision and vibe. 


"Andrea took our maternity pictures and then some family photos once our little one was here and settled. She was patient with us and was able to get our son to smile and play during our family session. I rarely get professional photos taken, but am so so glad that I had these done and will treasure them forever. She captured some AMAZING shots with perfect lighting."
