It’s hard to believe that the first time I photographed this darling face she was just three years old and I was (almost) a complete newbie working out of a tiny room in my old house.  Here she is, practically a grown up and I’ve got gray hair and wrinkles, two kids and I’m on my second studio.

I’m so glad you stopped by my blogsite!  Short history…I opened Andrea Jones Photography almost ten years ago.  After a couple of years working out of my home, I opened my first studio in downtown Helena, MT.  I was there for three years and LOVED every moment of it.  When my lease was up, I was planning to move to a much bigger space to accommodate my growing business.  But at that same time, I found out we were expecting another baby.  I made the choice to stay home with my kids and work very part-time and on-location.  Because Andrea Jones Photography was an established, high end studio with a focus on studio portaits, customer service and quality prints and canvases, I didn’t want to jeopardize the reputation of my business by offering a lesser quality product.  However, I knew that as a full time mom, I wouldn’t be able to provide that time intensive service to my clients.  So, I started another business, ShutterBee by Andrea Jones.  ShutterBee focused on short, on-location sessions with digital files.  While the quality of the photography didn’t change, the amount of time I spent with each client was drastically reduced.  This worked fine for a few years while I had little ones in diapers and most days I was lucky to manage to comb my hair.  But now that my baby is three, I want to do what I do best.  So I’m saying farewell to ShutterBee and returning to Andrea Jones Photography, where, once again, I can focus on my clients and on offering the best in service and quality.

Meet little miss Nevayah.  She’s a princess through and through.  She adores lip gloss, dresses, shoes, and all manner of frilly girly stuff.  And she is gorgeous, but don’t tell her that!  She likes to chew gum, and she and her big brother Logan actually LIKE each other.  She is such a sweetheart, and obviously the camera loves her.  Don’t you just want to take her home and put her up on a shelf?
