We have lived in the same neighborhood for over 30 years with many of the same great families, and in our ever-busy live’s we have come to measure the passing of time by the speed at which the children in the neighborhood suddenly become young adults. This is the case with Jared. In his early teens, he used to mow the lawn for us. How on earth could he now be a senior in the Class of 2018? We are really looking forward to capturing his senior portraits in a couple of weeks (in a special location!). The evening of his senior prom, he brought his beautiful date, Maddy to the studio with both of their families and amid the chaos and catching up with the neighborhood gossip, we were able to capture some memorable images of the elegant couple. We left them with strict instructions to dance the night away! We’re pretty sure they took our advice!

Jenny looked absolutely stunning for her senior prom! Is that not the PERFECT color dress with her gorgeous red hair? We were so thrilled that she ‘weathered the storm’ and made her way to our studio to allow us to capture some images for her so that she will remember this prom forever. We also had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Jenny last fall when we shot her senior session. She rocked out all three of her outfits that day too! It’s been a pleasure to see her radiant smile in front of our lens these last few months. And we get to see her entire family soon when they come for their family portrait session! (Did we mention that had the privilege of capturing Jenny’s brother Jeff’s senior photo’s two years ago?). We’re so very happy we met this beautiful family!

Congratulations to Jenny and the rest of the Westfield High School Class of 2017 on their graduation last night. We look forward to seeing you all make your positive mark on the world!

In honor of Westfield High School’s graduating Class of 2017 last day of school today and prom this evening, we thought we’d share a shoot we did recently with some of our seniors this school year. We had so much fun getting to know all of you (including those not present for this session) this year! Wishing you all a joyful, memory-making and above all, safe day today WHS!

“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!

There is a flurry of activity going on now at AYP! Half of our weddings have already taken place and we are working diligently on putting the finishing touches on the beautiful images to deliver to our amazing couples. We are busy preparing for our upcoming weddings and meeting with our 2017 couples. At the same time we have begun our senior portrait sessions, we are collaborating on a fun project with Kat Kattler Photography, we are readying our new studio for official opening (even though we’ve already had 4 shoots there!) and in addition, we have some pretty big projects going on at the home front. If you know us, you know we wouldn’t have it any other way. We are sincerely grateful for all the opportunities and the people we have in our lives.
Yesterday, I was asked how we do it all. Firstly, this is nothing out of the ordinary for us. There are soooo many people we know tackling and juggling soooo much more. And most importantly, we truly love what we do. Truly. All of the energy that surrounds us, from our clients and friends and families keeps us excited and fueled! 
Secondly, speaking just for myself, I find my inspiration when I watch my husband in action. He has endless stamina! Everyone who knows him, knows what I’m talking about. I find inspiration in my daughter and son-in-law who are working incredibly hard to achieve their goals and dreams. I find inspiration in the places we go, the people we meet and through music. And I find tremendous inspiration in hearing our clients stories. 
After a photo session, wedding or event, when I’m culling images I need complete solitude. I need to remain focused on finding the very best images that represent the beauty and joy of each session. But when I’m editing or preparing the studio for a shoot, that’s a different story. I love the music blaring or a compelling Amazon audio book running in the background. During these glorious summer days, when I need a break, I hop in my convertible and take a drive through the country, breathing in the sweet smells and soaking up the warmth of the sun (sometimes it means having to have the ac going with the top down but it’s still a welcomed break). And very often have a pretty picture close by of a place that inspires me. It always reminds me of the fun we had on that outing and of the abundant blessings God has given me in my life. 
Here’s my photo for today…. taken in HarwichPort, Cape Cod in May 2106. I hope it inspires you too!
Wishing you all a glorious day!
