how Andrea creates beautiful headshots

The best headshot(s) for a person or business depends on their goal(s). Whether it's to submit for auditions, authentically capture one's professional self, showcase a person or people on brand, etc., Andrea utilizes her background in marketing, acting, production, styling and, of course, photography to work with the client to achieve those goals. Before and during a session, Andrea can talk and/or tweak hair, makeup, wardrobe, location, lighting, and backgrounds - paying special attention to color - to create the desired look.
