Welcome 2017!

Its a new year already!!

2016 FLEW by for my family and my business!! I had 53 newborn shoots alone in 2016! I was so blessed with my wonderful clients and meeting so many great people--I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for me and Andrea Hunt Photography!!

Since its the beginning of the new year, and I have so many new readers, I thought I'd re-introduce myself for you all. :)

I'm Andrea.

I'm an almost 30-natural blonde-mom-wife-cosmetologist-and photographer!

I live in Mesa, Arizona and love this beautiful and ridiculously hot desert :)

(taken at the Salt River)

I have a great family. I've been married to my husband for 7+ years...


I have an awesome 3 year old son...

I spend what free time I have grocery shopping, playing chase, hoping up and down stairs or thresholds, fighting "en gaurde" with empty paper towel holders, playing cars, and watching Rescue Bots with my boss...the 3 year old. :)

I have been taking family portraits for friends and family since 2005. I have always loved taking pictures and before marriage and kids, I loved scrap booking those pictures (now i do digital scrapbooks--love technology!) :) 

I went to college, then went to cosmetology school and worked as a stylist for a few years. Once I got pregnant, I knew I wanted to devote as much time as I could to being a stay at home mom. My new baby re-ignited my love for photography. I started my business in 2014 and its just grown and grown since! I have taken pictures of newborns, baptisms, high school seniors, engagements, and maternity! I love it all. I love to capture special moments.

My style of photography is all about realness. Its taking a moment in time and freezing it, and allowing you to remember and feel exactly what you were; then. Posed portraits are great and I do that as well, but I thrive in a more loose and unstructured environment (more lifestyle). When it comes to newborns, I don't pose them in un-natural ways--I prefer free posing...because no one remembers their 7 day old getting into the froggy position (because that would be crazy), but you WILL remember when they slept with their arms up above their head :)

I also have an obsession with barros pizza (but almost all pizza...)


Good books/Fun reads...(fun fact: i am a natural speed reader)

Finding change in my car...



Christmas (anything!)...


and I am fascinated by Great White Sharks/Python snakes...!

I am happy you are here, please don't be shy, and stay awhile!

End of 2016

I have been so blessed this year to meet so many new people, families, and babies through my photography business!! I had my final shoots of 2016 yesterday, and I am just so excited for 2017!

Here are a couple of collages of just my newborns of 2016--53 newborn shoots and 55 babies!! WOW!

I absolutely have loved snuggling all these precious babes! 
Thank you to all of my clients for a great year, and I'll see you in 2017!

Baby Luke + Family

Sweet Luke was supposed to see me when he was (alot) smaller, but the poor thing kept getting sick! As a mom to a preemie, I completely understand!!
Luke was born at 35 weeks, just like my little guy, but he was a bit bigger. However he didn't escape being immuno-compromised! 
So we needed to wait until he was healthy enough, which brought us to his almost 4 month birthday!

This sweet family brought in some fun props--dad's college football helmet and some sports toys. I think this boy might be an athlete. We'll see!! Enjoy!!

Baby Everett

Baby Everett is the tail end of his family! Mom and Dad have quite a gap in-between their last two kids, and he is the baby of 4. 

You can tell how loved he is--and what a blessing their family thinks he is.

He did awesome, and slept, and modeled the crocheted booties and beanies his momma made him. 
So so very cute!

Alexxa and Yaretzy (Twins) Cake Smash!

These gorgeous girls turned ONE and mom wanted special portraits to celebrate.

These cute twins had custom dresses and headbands and cute personalities to boot!!

Once they got their first taste of cake--everyone in the room disappeared and they were in heaven!!

Alcantar Family

This sweet little family visited me one night.
Mom originally wanted to do a newborn session with their newer baby, but also wanted updated portraits of her older kids for the holidays.

Again, easy fix! Combine the two. :) That's why I love being a "all around" photographer. I don't only do one type of photography.
