Who is Andrea Borden?
I am EXUBERANT! I love the outdoors, golden hour vistas, and great friends. My perfect day would be a daytrip to the redwoods and the beaches of Northern California with a huge cup of coffee and my sweetheart by my side. I try to live like I want to live: do what it takes to make a difference in your own life: don't dream it, live it! Every day is a gift, and it'll never happen again. I capture the uniqueness of each new day in my life.

Helloooooooo Wednesday! And happy birthday Mr L! My first photography teacher’s birthday is today, so I want to shout out to him a big ‘thank you!’ and wishes for a fabulous day!
Today I am busy, working away on photos (and this set featured above! More on that in a minute), preparing for Christmas, and listening to a photography lecture. Listening to lectures may sound boring to some of you, but I am like a sponge, I can’t get enough of them. If lectures aren’t your thing, maybe this will be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjlSuwZszfI. It’s Mumford and Son’s Hopeless Wanderer as a piano instumental. For all you Mumford fans, You may all go re-plan your wedding processional around this song.
In the mean time, I am trying out a new software for editing that comes recommended by Sue Bryce on her A Shoot With Sue lectures. I am properly impressed with the many film selections this new software provides, so I wanted to share. (click to enlarge the photos above)
I just love the specific brands of film and grain it adds to this shoot with Veronica from earlier this year. It definitely fits the feeling we shot for and you will certainly see more from this new software in the shoots to come!
And just for fun, here’s one from a recent shoot with an ADORABLE little one with this effect:
Have a wonderful Wednesday, stay dry, warm, and cheery!
Check out this awesome girl! Some of you may remember her glam portraits from my blog before, now here’s something a little more her style. She is an awesome musician and tumblr-er as well, here’s her music channel, she’s pretty incredible: http://www.youtube.com/user/mariahwester?feature=watch
And, on wednesday the Carousel Girls Night Out shots will be available for anyone who attended, you’ll get an invite in your inbox for the email you fabulous ladies provided. I had great fun meeting the gals who totally rocked the shots!
Here’s one of Eryka, posing for a test shot..
And of course, here’s the magnificent Brandon, our hair stylist for the night (and our hair stylist for all our vendor shoots, he is amazing!), goofing off for some test shots as well. They make an awesome team and are just plain fun to be around! They’re both such hams. =)
And of course, Eryka always looks so fabulous I had to put up just another killer shot of her:
FIERCE! You rock! =)
And this morning it RAINED!!!! YESSS!!!!
Happy Monday, everyone!
Missing New England? … You could say that.
Missing New England? … You could say that.
Pretty Much, yeah. Hey New Hampshire! Move closer to California!
I’m partnering with Burnsini Vineyards for my upcoming styled shoot! The story of this winery is awesome, I love what the founders did for their local community, kudos to them for really bringing out the potential in their area!
Emily and I visited with Tom Burnham today, we are so excited for what this season has to offer, and we’re always open to new vendors, creatives, and people who want to get involved!
In other news, I meant to visit another vendor today but my car died!! Driving on I-5 while my car was stalling in the right lane, oncoming big rigs… yeah, not safe. So my baby Jess the Jeep is in the shop, I will just have to do my planning from home!

For this week’s weekly cuteness I present to you:
KITTENS!!! Itty bitty kittens!
This was all shot in natural light and took around 5 minutes for Mama cat to say that enough was enough and carry them back to their corner.
I hope soon I can go take more photos of them, I didn’t have much time yesterday, and if I had known I was going to experience cuteness overload on my camera, I definitely would have brought in a reflector to get a little more light on them.
I met these little sweeties when I was asked to check up on a friend’s house before work, I couldn’t resist taking a couple photos. I just love how curious they were!
As I understand it, once they’re old enough, they’re going to need good homes. I wish I could take one!
So here’s all they are, in all their “aww” glory!
