Andrea B. Photography » Photographers In McKinney

I just think there is NOTHING cuter than baby bits and pieces!!!!  I had so much fun capturing Luke’s little feet, hands, nose and laughter!!!

He has the most amazing blue eyes too!!!

He was a DOLL during our session and laughed and smiled for me for 1.5 hours.  What a TROOPER!!!!

I always have so much fun with this family and am so blessed to have wonderful clients like this!!!!


I have been MIA from my blog lately, but now I am BACK and ready to roll!!!!

I think every person I meet has a love for photography.  I love hearing other people’s stories about what they love to capture and their experiences with photography, BUT what makes photography different for me is the creative design I have with the photos AFTER they are taken.


This is why some photographers are expensive, some dirt cheap.  Post processing puts my creative stamp on each and every photo I create.

If you are paying $50 to get your photos done, then chances are the person is taking the photos, and giving them straight to you.  There is nothing wrong with that, BUT post processing improves your photos in ways that the camera CANNOT.

The term “you get what you pay for” is true with photography!!!  Your children change so fast and I believe that capturing them is so important.

I KNOW being a parent is expensive, but even I had to save to hire a photographer to do my newborn photos.  It really just depends on what your priority is, and for me, it is capturing images like the one below.

The first image is straight out of the camera (SOOC).  Just a normal shot of a beautiful baby!!!!


The second image is my example of post processing.  I spend time making each photo the BEST possible, I smooth out the skin, I adjust skin tones, I add shadows, make the whites of the eyes WHITES and I make eyes shine.

    This is such a great post — I am one of those people who love photography and know nothing about post-production work. What a great visual of how important that work is! Too bad I live in Arizona…

It has been a while since I have seen this family, and this was my first session with little brother Chase.  I think he wore Mom and Dad out.

I am so glad we started the session out with some GREAT shots bc then we were dealing with a little boy who DID NOT want to have his photos taken, no matter what we did.

HA- we still got some great ones Mom and Dad!!!  I loved seeing how grown up Celeste has become!!!  She sure did talk my ear off, it reminded me of my daughter.


Ahhhhh.  My angel Ellie is turning four today and I realize I am way TOO sentimental when it comes to my children.  I find myself thinking back to how I felt and what I was doing exactly four years ago.  I hardly remember holding her as a baby, the time has literally flown by.  One thing I do have is photos of her because when you have a newborn (and are in labor for over 24 hours with 2 full nights of NO SLEEP) your brain just is not functioning properly.

I am so honored that this little girl changed me into a Mommy.  She has been a joy, full of happiness and life!!!  She smiles and laughs all the time and is full of good humor.  Now, we do have our bad moments, but she is so sensitive and gets so upset when she knows we are disappointed.

I love her so much and being her mom has been the most life changing experience for me.  I want so much for her- to be content in life, to be true to herself, to help others, and to live a Christian life.

MUCH LOVE to my little Ellie Jean.
