Hi! Welcome to my blog about my travels and how to take amazing photographs!
My name is Andrea and I think anyone is capable of taking photos that they can be proud of, including you. I’m guessing you have an interest in photography if you are here and I can’t wait to share all the information I have with you about photography and travel.
My motto is have fun, be positive, connect with others and live a full happy life!
I was in the education field prior to photography and I believe everything I did brought me to where I am now.
I have always loved photography and received what I call a “fancy” camera when my first son was born 13 years ago. It was a Canon EOS Rebel XSI. I have since had 4 cameras after that.
Currently, I shoot with my Canon 6D Mark II for portraits but I also love my Sony a6400 for travel and sports.
I live in Minnesota with my amazing family and I love every season we have here, even if winter seems to last forever. I love going on hikes, taking photos and watching my boys play sports.
I’ve had my photography business for 5 years now (4 years part time and recently 1 year full time) and I’ve tried almost every genre of photography. My favorite part about photography is the ability to capture a moment and look back on it years later.
Every photograph holds a story that I can remember about that exact place. Like the photo below. My dad and I were driving home from a trip to my cabin and we drove around the corner and saw this captivating sight. We pulled over and I was able to capture it and remember this amazing moment.
Some of my favorite places I have traveled to include Ireland, Hawaii, Mexico, Florida, Idaho and Colorado.
Some of my bucket list places include Banff, New Zealand, California and Oregon.

I will post tips on how to take better photographs and information about hiking and traveling to various places in Minnesota and beyond.
