"as beautiful as the memory itself"

We have an incredibly talented team of artists who bring your beautiful photographic portraits into reality:

our team

    Andrea Halsey has been a photographer and artist her entire life having studied art, design, music, architecture, science, computer programming, drawing, painting, writing, film and digital photography. Her transition into motherhood brought a new creative passion where she was able to tell the story of childhood and family using the camera as her medium. Combining her life experiences and talents she opened her first photography studio in 2007. This is where her creative passion was able to take new heights, continuing on a path to the painted portraits and beautiful fine art photography that has become her signature work today.

Welcome

Gallery

Andrea's portrait work is a feat beyond simply taking a picture. In truth, anyone is capable of taking a picture. It takes a special degree of artistry to create something that evokes emotion. Each piece in Andrea's gallery is a special image that often has more significance than meets the eye. The portraits we will create for you will be crafted in a way that is special to you and your family, not just a beautiful portrait, but a work of art that evokes your most treasured memories.

As we often hear, it is all in the details. This is how we craft an amazing experience from start to finish. Once you commission Andrea to create your portraits, you will embark on the artistic journey in creating something you can truly treasure. Andrea and her team are with you through the entire process - to laugh, to cry, to lend a helping hand and ultimately to ensure that memories are not only captured, but also made.

Learn more about portrait sessions:

We know just how important it is when a family is introducing a new life into the world. A newborn portrait session with signature Andrea Halsey portraits is something truly special. Our baby whisperer helps keep your baby content while we take care of all the portrait details. We give mom and dad a relaxing atmosphere, with access to television and snacks, and the chance for a much needed break. Our team's goal is to make the experience wonderful for everyone.

To have Andrea photograph your newborn, you should book your Newborn Session during pregnancy as we typically book 1-2 months (in some cases seasons) in advance. We can only guarantee availability once you commission Andrea for portraits.

What if my baby is already here?
No worries! We have lovely baby and family portrait options as well. Simply give us a call and we will take care of you.

During our consultation we will be crafting the experience of your portrait session. When you consider what your print needs are, we can better achieve those results by planning what you have in mind for your family. This is your time to explore possibilities, ask questions and make plans. 

The consultation is an extremely important part to planning a successful portrait session. You will want to have both spouses (and any adults related to the planning of the session) present.

This is also when we will be putting together your plans for the artwork, discussing ideas for wall art, prints and albums, etc. We have a specialty list of collections of our most popular pieces for you to consider. 

The Commission Fee covers the following:
• Your initial consultation planning the portrait experience.
• Andrea conceptualizes, plans and executes everything required for your session.
• Andrea is the creator of your portrait art images.
• Andrea personally hand-edits your images, including basic retouching.
• Our behind-the-scenes photographer and videographer captures the important memories we create together.
• Our baby posing assistant who specializes in keeping your child comfortable during poses and changes.
• Andrea personally orchestrates all the set designs. 
• An in-home Selection Appointment to present our final work and select your images to print.
• Portraits are personally delivered to your home for an unveiling, including wall art installation.
• Newborn Sessions begin at $600 Commission Fee.

Due to the custom nature of our artwork, all print options are discussed during your initial consultation to create a custom collection just for your family. Options vary from sizes and style. All of our pieces have been hand-selected by Andrea for fine art nature, longevity and heirloom quality.

A la carte prints begin at $150.
All-inclusive collections of our most popular options begin at $2,440.
Clients can expect to invest anywhere between $500 - $12,000.

Baby Plans offer a substantial savings on our Commission Fees by committing to three sessions to take place within one year. There are several options that allow you to customize to your needs:

Maternity Session - Artistic portraits between 7 and 8 months along.
Fresh 48 Session - Documentary-style emotive portraits at the hospital.
Newborn Session - Stylized keepsake portraits of your newborn.
Baby Portraits - When baby is about 4 months along, doing well with tummy time.
6 Month Session - The perfect baby portraits when baby can sit on his/her own.
9 Month Session - When baby is pulling up and learning to walk for the first time.
1 Year Session - A wonderful way to capture your baby around his/her birthday.

Single Session: Begins at $400
Newborn Session: $600
3-Session Plan: $795
5-Session Plan: $995

Andrea's mix of traditional portraits and modern candid portraits makes for a beautiful portfolio of your family this year. Every session is meticulously planned to suite your family's personal needs, dreams, hopes and desires. During your consultation, Andrea will get to connect with you, your spouse and your children to find out special little secrets that will make your session an artistic success. Andrea is available for travel to vacation homes, your home town, beautiful waterfalls or in your own front yard. She is also available for international travel.

Family Sessions should be booked at least 2 months in advance.

(March) Cherry Blossom Sessions should be booked at least 1 year ahead.

(November) Fall Sessions should be booked by July of the same year.

We guarantee availability once you have commissioned Andrea for portraits.
