Hi friends I’m Andrea!

I’m a portrait photographer, small business owner, and lover of nacho cheese Doritos! I’ve been married to my best friend George for almost three years now. We live in southern New Hampshire with our two Holland Lop bunnies, Emerson Chase and Lola Mae. They just happen to be the cutest and most cuddly 3 and 4 lb furry loves ever!

Call me old school, I’m a big believer of sitting down with loved ones and looking at albums and old pictures. Not only can it be a bonding experience but also a way to remember those moments in time. Some happy, some sad, some bring a smile to your face, and some are just plain embarrassing (yes, you know the ones!) It may be a way to look back at those sweet memories that you had with loved ones who have passed on. What a great way to reminisce.    

My passion for photography allows to me serve my clients so that they can hold on to life’s sweetest, treasured memories for a lifetime. It’s both an honor and pleasure to be able to use my God given gift to be able to bless others. Being able to turn both my passion and love and turn it into my career is an amazing experience.

Photography has been something that I’ve enjoyed and have done as a hobby since my teenage years. A trait that I believe was passed down to me from my Mom. I remember her purchasing a beautiful camera through Fingerhut when I was a kid. We even took a class together through an Adult Learning Center with our film cameras. I bought my first Nikon DSLR 3100 in 2012.  Starting out, I mostly enjoyed taking pictures of landscapes, nature, and rusty bolts before I realized how much I enjoyed taking pictures of people. I decided to upgrade to a Nikon D500 in early 2018 when I decided to take my love for photography to a deeper level. On July 12, 2018 I started my Andrea Dawn Photography LLC business. Since then I’ve been learning and growing as a business woman and photographer.  

Photography has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. It wasn’t until more recently that I started looking at my business and what I do in a different way. I recently lost a sister to cancer. When she found out that she had something going on but before she knew what it really was, she asked me to take her family’s pictures, just in case. Those words weigh heavily on my heart still today. I know that nobody is promised tomorrow and it’s still something that I’m dealing with but if I can capture those life’s sweetest, treasured memories that they can hold onto for a lifetime, then I’m doing something right!
