RE: Family Photographs at the Hyatt

My family recently spent the weekend at your hotel in celebration of my parent’s 40th anniversary. My brothers and I decided to have family photos taken and give them to my parents as a gift of memories for years to come. When I called the hotel to find the name of a photographer the person I spoke with only had names of wedding photographers. Feeling at a loss, I searched the internet for local photographers. After spending hours online, I finally decided to call Andrea Burns. Her website showcased amazing family pictures and I could just tell that she would provide me with quality pictures. Andrea was quick to call me back and agreed to meet us during our stay. She was flexible with times and even suggested a rain date. Andrea is a local woman and knows the Hyatt landscape well.

On the evening we were supposed to meet for pictures it was overcast and rainy. Andrea and I agreed to cancel that night and have them done the following evening (at no extra charge). The following evening my entire family, including three grandchildren under the age of five met Andrea in the lobby of the hotel. She was quick to begin as she understood working with children is like working with a ticking time bomb. Needless to say the session went well and we all LOVE the pictures. They brought tears to my mother’s eyes and we are so happy that Andrea was able to capture our reunion with such quality.

It is without hesitation that I would like to suggest that you add Andrea Burns to your local list of photographers for family photographs. Given that The Hyatt has such beautiful scenery and is so family friendly I would think that many other families would love to take capture priceless memories of their stay.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions. I have attached a shot of the group.

Big Announcement…

May 24, 2011

I have a big announcement. It comes with pain, and also with the hope of new things and adventures to come.

Our family has decided that we will be relocating to the Eastern Shore of Maryland (Queen Anne’s Co, Talbot & Caroline Co).

At this time I do not have a moving date set in stone, but it does look like it will be the end of June/ beginning of July.

So, what does this mean to you?

Well….. for some it means I had the utmost pleasure photographing you and your family’s magic, and I wish you the best in life. For some, it means we may meet halfway in Annapolis for fun sessions there, and I can continue to document your family. For the Eastern Shore folks…. it means Andrea Burns Photography is coming your way, and I Can’t Wait To Meet You.

I would like to thank all of my clients thus far for believing in me and helping to build my business. If you were considering a session with me, I am currently booking studio sessions on the weekends, and location session on weeknights. And there are VERY FEW spots left.
