you see the result. but, with anything online you miss so much that goes on going into it. the energy. the vibes. the response.

i thought i’d share a little word directly from a clients mouth because….well, you hear from me enough.

but isnt it such a thing that you see something online, or a profile, you kind of imagine the personality or the experience, but you dont actually know. and thats the tricky part about the online world.

sure, you see gorgeous images, but what was her response. how did she feel. here’s a few words from K herself.

andria. omg!
i’m in awe! the way you shoot is breathtaking! i’m amazed at how sexy a clavicle, arch of the back, sideways glance etc can be. When so many females have self esteem issues, i’m so grateful to say that these photos give me so much confidence. Hell ya! Every girl needs this feeling! Thanks again for shooting these and making me feel like fire. My husband is gonna love these, and so do i.
EVERY woman deserves to feel alive in her own skin and own her flaws, be it stretch marks, cellulite whatever. I wish body image issues weren’t a thing, but they are. Pictures like this give me the power to feel grateful for my own body, stretch marks and all. So hell yes!!!
.

delivering images is such a fun day for me. as someone who’s been on the other side, i know all the hopes and imaginations that go along with finding someone you love, investing and booking them…all of it is so exciting, and you can only hope that the result is something you’re even more excited about. i work really hard and pour over your images so that the response and emotion you have to your imagery is top. it never gets old to me that you’re choosing me and you better bet that I’m working my ass off for 100% thrilled clients every single time.

As I’ve mentioned, my calendar is about closed until October/November. I am still getting a lot of boudoir inquiries for summer and i just dont have enough time in the calendar to book everyone….so I’m looking to add a date in August, not an event, not short sessions, but a day with some back to back shoots. 3 or 4 girls, everyone gets their own shoot, but this way, I can block out a day and not have to turn away you ladies that are looking for summer dates. Right now I’m looking at August 14th, a tuesday. // If you’re interested in grabbing one of those spots, email me ShootMe@AndriaLindquist.com

Blake & Cadence

// Family

Blake & Cadence x2.

you might remember them the sweetest tiniest little duo that I documented when they were just weeks old, now almost a year later, I’m back and their even cuter. moving, sitting up, and completely different personalities.

 

the biggest gift is being able to be present in these stories, and watch families grow.

here’s ben, amanda, blake and cadence.

I’m full back in the swing of things, 2-3 shoots a week, weddings, its on. If you’re thinking about contacting me for photos this year, get in contact soon. I’m just about done booking for the year. A few spots in October, November and minimal in December. If you want some gorg Christmas cards this year, get in touch now to book a winter spot. I love documenting families and would love to make some sweet photos with your fam.

Moments

// Wedding

i love a good portrait. 

give me a bride in some harsh light. or out in the city. 

but so much about weddings, is the moments. 

so many things you didnt see go on at your own wedding. 

i walk around documenting the snippets and smiles. a hand hold or a look. 

 

i put together a post with just some moments that stood out to me. not one portrait. not one detail shot. just moments that tell part of the story.

I am rarin’ right on into wedding season and a few of my events. my year is almost booked out and its back at it, after a slower year last year after having portland. a whole new balance understanding owning a business while momming and having a family. one thing i will say, is I’ve learned to be real real good with every minute of the day. wouldnt change it. I’m excited to keep meeting couples for my 2019, if you’re getting married and interested, send me a holler.

muah.

YOU + YOUR BABIES 

 

If you’re a mama, I’m sure that all rang true to you. I’ve always been the documenter, even back in high school and college. now, as a photographer and a mom, I’m remembering another set of months went by and i need to shoot her! I’m always following her day with pictures and videos, seeing the perfect moment between Portland and CJ and capturing it. But you know what? I’m not in very many. mostly because I’m working from home, making her food, writing an email with one hand and feeding her with the other. I’m rarely ready, and have a red velvet baseball cap on most the time….so those photos I do take with her, my hair and up and no makeup.

But these times, its the best moments and days. and im building memories with her. how we brush our teeth together in the morning. or our morning walks. Her climbing all over me and standing behind me as i work, wrapping her little arms around my neck giving me the best hug.

It’s the most beautiful. and also the craziest. multi-tasking. busy. wonderful time. i’ve never been one night away from her and i’m her everything. i totally feel how they say, its the longest shortest time. and you know what, i deserve to be in photos where I’m with her, and where i feel beautiful and capture these memories that i will always have such sweet memories. i want to have the feeling i feel in my heart towards my baby to be captured on camera and in a physical form i can rely on later when i forget what its like to have babies in my house. 

it’s all because of this that I’ve been building something I’m so excited for, which is: The Mama & The Babies event – where Mama’s can show up, hand their baby over to a babysitter only to have it replaced with a glass of champagne. Have makeup done by a professional. Have moments to yourself. And take beautiful, feminine, strong, lovely photos with you and your babies.

cuddle, breastfeed, play, be quiet, hold, love.

Any age, if they call you mama….you’ve got the 1st spot. 

I put the idea out and there’s been an incredible response….so that just tells me, helllllllo we need this. I want so much to provide an opportunity where moms can step out of “I’m taking care of everyone” and put on “Let’s do something for you.” 

Photos for you to remember this time.

But photos to look back on 50 years from now and they can look at the woman they love so much.

 

The Mama & The Babies Event will be Sunday, July 22nd. You’ll have a beautiful home to relax in and get ready in. Photos of you and your babies. White. Flowy. Feminine. Love. Babies. Kids. Mama.

I’m launching this on Sunday. I’m so beyond excited to see what mama’s will be joining. This is starting something good. I know it. Ready to make some art with you and your babies.
