Giveaway: Andrea Gunter Photography

Andrea Gunter Photography met up with my entire crazy family for a mini-session and I want to share a few of her pictures as well as some fun deals for your holiday pictures!

(You do remember you’ll need pictures for your cards, right?)

The whole crew- kid 1, girlfriend in law, baby brother, hubby, me, kid 2, PWC Grandma, Coach Papa, and kid 3. You may be noticing that I’m REALLY short for my family. 

I first met Andrea in passing at a birthday party for a friend’s daughter.  Andrea was there taking pictures of the party and did such a beautiful job!

This guy isn’t mine- but I love this picture so much it’s ridiculous.

Andrea is a portrait photographer who, unlike some of the photographers we’ve worked with in the past, is good about giving some direction as far as position.  Several of the lifestyle photographers we’ve worked with just have you do whatever you’d like and caputure moments, and Andrea definitely came with a few plans in mind and organized us into groups and provided some structure, so if you’d like a little direction but not to be overly-posed, Andrea would be a great fit for you.


 


 One thing that I think Andrea is really gifted at is single and small group shots.  Y’all, she didn’t even laugh out loud or tease my brother and girlfriend-in-law when they busted out their coordinating orange and blue plaid shirts.  My husband and I, on the other hand, were merciless about calling them giant dorks.  I think our couple shots all turned out really cute.  (PS to my blondes, wearing gold is a horrible idea for pictures.  This sweater looked so cute in the store, and it totally washed me out and made me look even fatter than I really am.  Choose colors.)

We got some cute family pictures, too, but my middle son seemed to photobomb EVERY shot with a funny face, and I would have rather had a semi-normal smile than the personality factor, but that’s just me- I know lots of people who would disagree.

Yeah, he’s doing that on purpose. He was a goofball the whole day.

Andrea picked a gorgeous location, and was really nice to work with.  She even juggled our large group around well and came with fun props to use, too.  I think she really likes to capture fun personality and moments, too- this is, again, from her facebook:

That’s hilarious. I love it.

Andrea has sessions starting at $125 with various options to meet your particluar needs. Right now she’s got a free 16×20 canvas for families that have their session by November 30th.
