“Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.” – Colin Powell
We are thrilled to announce the addition of Lauren Matteo Niedbala, our new studio manager, to the Andrea York Photography team!
Truth be told, Lauren isn’t exactly new to the team. We had the good fortune to have her baby whispering with our team at Yankee Candle during the 2015 holiday season. She also produced beautiful images on the weddings she second shot with us. Lauren is a very talented photographer and an alumni of the prestigious Hallmark Institute of Photography!
In the short time that Lauren has been managing our studio, she has been instrumental in organizing some of our more complex workflows, editing a number of portrait sessions and improving our client response time. If you’ve been around me for more than 5 minutes, you’ve heard me say: “I just want to shoot!”. (I seriously need that on a tee shirt -with a Nikon camera of course!). Lauren, in addition to Ariel Grondin, our part time assistant extraordinaire (and Yankee Candle Holiday Project Manager) are allowing us to focus on what we love to do most – taking pretty pictures of amazing people.
Please join Donald and I in welcoming Lauren on board!! And if you’re shopping at Pilgrim Candle – feel free to stop in to the gallery to say hello to her!
