Limited Edition Spring Mini Portrait Sessions in Marietta, Ohio

Thank goodness spring has finally sprung! Winter was no joke this year and we think it is time to celebrate with some indoor spring mini portrait sessions! We know that Mother Nature isn’t done messing with us  yet, so we created a colorful kid friendly set indoor set.

Our limited edition spring set features bright colors, fresh flowers, plenty of make believe and a quilt fort! Your favorite pumpkin-wumpkin-sugarloaf-lumpkin can color, read or host a tea party while we take some adorable portraits. We suggest gathering a couple of your kiddos favorite books and stuffed animals so they have familiar guests with them at their photo shoot. Do you have some fun Matilda Jane style clothes you have been dying to feature in a portrait session? This is the perfect session for that!

Spring 2015 Portrait Session

We have just a handful of sessions available for this fun set and at $99 these sessions will go super fast! Dates for this set are April 8th through the 14th.

Your $99 session fee includes a 20 minute session and an 8 x 10 print of your choice. The first three people to book this session will have their 8 x 10 print upgraded to a canvas gallery wrap! Canvas gallery wraps are amazing because they are delivered ready to hang and are so durable! I actually spilled some wine on one last week and didn’t notice it for a couple days and it wiped right off!

Here are some test shots we did over the weekend featuring the lovely Julia. Special thanks goes to Rachel Hyde for helping me style the set and for producing such delightful children! I am certain we will tweak the set a bit before you arrive, but you get the idea!

Are you ready to grab one of the few spots available? Awesome! Give me a call at 304-482-5105 or go ahead and pay your session fee now to get this party started!

Settling Into The New Marietta Portrait Studio

We are up and running in our new downtown Marietta, Ohio portrait studio space! And oh my goodness I LOVE being in Marietta! It is a quick walk to a couple of my favorite places – The Galley/Adelphia, SWAGG , Focus and the Buckley House to name a few and Marietta is just so damn charming!

Many of you may already know that 2014 was a doozy of year for me both personally and professionally. I sold my family home in July, started living part time in Detroit and opened a new studio space in downtown Marietta. Honestly, the new studio space was a total surprise to me. I was not certain exactly what we were going to do when the house sold and a great solution just happened to unfold for us!It has been an amazing adventure and things are finally starting to settle down into what I call my new normal.

Andi’s new normal looks something like this: I travel the five hours back to the Mid Ohio Valley twice a month for portrait sessions. I work remotely from the Detroit area for the rest of the month editing, taking care of office type stuff, snuggling my fur babies, exploring Detroit and hanging with my curly headed love. It can be a bit hectic at times but so far I am enjoying it! Flexibility, an amazing tribe of friends, Google Hangouts and the ever amazing Jesse Hyde have been key to a smooth transition.

Speaking of Jesse, now would be a great time to mention that we are sharing studio space with our sister studio Hot Tomato Pin-Up Academy and we are loving it!

Our studio is an old warehouse space on the third floor of Putnam Commons (the old JCPenny building). It has a rough, loft feel with wood floors, tall windows, exposed brick and some very interesting architectural details.

The space is dreamy, with abundant natural light and tons of room for sets and props. More space means that I can easily accommodate indoor sessions no matter what the weather holds so there are fewer reschedules. Natural light allows me to accommodate kiddos (or any folks for that matter) who don’t react well to flash photography.

We would love for you to stop by sometime! Just drop us a line and let us know you would like to see the new space! We are booking now for April, May and all of 2015. Your session starts here!

Here are some images from the new space –
