about meAbout me …

I believe that life is short + kids grow up TOO FAST.

The best way to remember details, life + moments are through photography.

When I had my first baby I quickly found out that she had special little smiles + looks that only lasted so long.  In 3 months she no longer scrunched her nose just like that.  If I didn’t capture it right then, I was afraid I’d forget it.  Know what I mean?

It’s true that “life is what happens while we’re busy making plans”.  I’m guilty of “waiting until I lose the baby weight” to take family photos.  Or thinking that 6 months would be a better time to schedule that in to our lives.  But the truth is that NOW is the best time.  We’re not promised tomorrow so we need to make the most of RIGHT NOW.  🙂

How I got here…

All the above caused me to turn my long-time love for photography into a business.  It’s taken me quite a while to get to this point, but I want to help others preserve these memories with their families – before kids, during + after.  Every stage of life gives us a fun new chapter to learn + explore, therefore I’d love to be the one to help you document the stage you’re in now.  🙂  As a result, I especially love to photograph children, Tweens + High School Seniors.  I believe these times are important in so many ways!

I also want to help YOU take great photos of your kids.

If you have a DSLR and want to learn how to get out of “Auto” mode and really have more control over how your images turn out, then stay tuned….I will be adding more blog posts to help you out!  Because you need to be able to get great everyday images of your kids.  And I love you.  🙂

What you’ll receive from a session with Andrea Schrag Photography…

Growing up I often had a camera in my hands.  And there are shoe boxes full of photos (and bags full of undeveloped film) to prove it!  🙂  One reason digital photography is so great is that it allows us to take endless photos without the expense of developing film.  However, one downside is the same reason!  Not having to develop film means that photos often live on our computer.  This is no way for your beautiful photos to live!  They want to be on your walls, in your purse + shown off to everyone you see or who comes into your home.

As a result, with my session fee you’ll receive a credit for prints.  This means you’ll have the opportunity to purchase heirloom quality artwork for your walls.  I also offer prints for the office, Christmas cards + gifts for Grandma & Grandpa.  Because I want to make sure you walk away happy + with something pretty in your hands.  🙂

A little bit about the person behind the lens…

I’m a mom to 2 awesome humans, ages 12 + 5, and will be welcoming our 3rd blessing in late June 2018.  I’m also a wife to future doctor.  We all currently live in Haven, KS where we enjoy small town life.  Instagram is my jam and Pandora (Pentatonix radio specifically) knows how to speak to my soul.  Come say hi on Instagram or Facebook!  I’d love to meet you!
