Beauty portrait session with Andrea

No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart

Meet Andrea

She came for my session from our famous ‘BeYoutiful’ Campaign. What a joy was to prepare such special day for her!

  • Married, with three children: 13, 9, and 6.
  • Full-time teacher at the Malvern School.
  • Lover of good coffee and any kind of Italian food.

Being outside is therapy for me, and I start every morning taking a deep breath of fresh air to rejuvenate my body and mind.

Being a part of the BeYoutiful campaign was a once in a lifetime experience for me. I am not someone who usually goes out of my comfort zone. I play everything safe, I’m not an adventurist, and I thrive on my daily routine. Boring, I know, but what you don’t know is that I admire people who do live on the edge, take chances, and live life to the fullest. My mom passed away on Christmas Eve of this past year and it was a life altering experience for me. She was my everything! She was an extremely hard worker and raised my sister and I on her own. I depended on her for guidance, advice, love, and support and she was always there to fill every empty space I had. I finally had to grow up…

I realized life was too short to not take those chances and to make the most out of time we have here. I decided to try out for this campaign for my mom and more importantly, myself. So I went out of my comfort zone and sent in my video as to why I should be chosen as a part of the campaign. I am so glad that I did! What an experience! I was treated like the most important person for the day. Hair, makeup, beautiful clothes, and inspiring words of encouragement from Patricia. She kept telling me that I was ‘her’ Kate Winslet from the Titanic. Now, who wouldn’t want to be as beautiful and graceful as Kate Winslet? It truly was a moment to remember in my life. When I went to preview the photos Patricia took of me, I was blown away! I looked like I exuded confidence, which is something I certainly don’t have. But for one day, picture by picture, I had it and it is something I will cherish for eternity. So thank you to everyone who worked their magic that day!

Vince (My husband) says:

When I saw the pictures of my wife, I thought she looked amazing, gorgeous, and simply beautiful! My wife looks beautiful everyday, but these pictures illustrated her confidence in herself which she sometimes hides. Andrea is very humble about herself, therefore, does not believe that she is beautiful or posses wonderful traits that every husband dreams of in a wife! The pictures bring out my wife’s beauty inside and out which is so important for her to realize. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and professional work that truly will have an impact on me eternally.
