If you are here reading about me, you've probably taken a moment to look around my website or social media (facebook or instagram) and are familiar with some of my work and like my style. I am so happy you are here! Let me take a moment to introduce you to me.
Hello! My name is Andrea, I am the owner/photographer/editor/studio manager (Small business owner - Jack of all trades) well the EVERYTHING here at Ethan Avery Photography. I have an amazing husband Robert who supports me in everything I do. Without him I would not be able to do half of the things I do! I have four amazing kids, ages 12 - 4 years old. My first two, Avery and Ethan were born 14 months apart and as overwhelming as it was at the time, they were my sole inspiration for starting this business. Which is where my business name Ethan Avery Photography comes from. Don't get me started on how many times my third and fourth child have suggested me changing the name to Ethan Avery Mila Corbin Photography. It does have a nice flow to it right?! Haha.
There are parts to my business that are not for everyone - Births for instance are a very intimate time for some people and they would prefer for only their partners to be in their birth space. My session offerings come from a place of been there - wish I had that! I was so uneducated about childbirth before I had my first child. I was attending college and had 9 months until graduation when I learned I was pregnant. Yes - 9 months until graduation and baby. Did I do it? Yes you bet I did! In 2007 I graduated with a bachelors of fine arts with a focus in Graphic Design and became a mother for the first time. I had a beautiful little 6 lb 11 oz baby girl via cesarean, I was lucky to have my sister there to help capture her birth images.
When she was 6 weeks old we went to JCPENNYs to get her newborn portraits done. They gave us a little window of time for her session, and she decided she was hungry - and babies take forever to nurse! The pictures were awful - she was super red because she started crying from not being fed, and her diaper was sticking out, and I was super pale in comparison. I bought it just because that is the best photo I got and I spent my time trying to make it happen. From that moment, I decided I needed to learn to do better work myself, and I have!
Photography is really such a joy for me. I LOVE meeting new people and getting to capture all their new life experiences with them. I always feel honored when I am invited into clients lives. I really feel like I have met some of my best friends through my photography journey.
I can not wait to meet you and start capturing memories for your precious family
Above are my four kiddos. They keep me on my toes and I would not have it any other way!

Maternity Sessions typically take place between 32 - 36 weeks of pregnancy. I prefer the gorgeous evening glow of the golden hour lighting outdoors to photograph Maternity sessions in, however studio sessions are available for clients needing mid day sessions. Includes 10 digital images.
Want newly born pictures of your little one but love your privacy for the actual birth? This is a great selection for you. I will come up to the hospital or your home shortly after you give birth to take a few documentary style images of you and your newest arrival the day or two after you've given birth. Because there is driving involved and parking fees this session price is a bit more than my regular session fees.
Does your home look like it belongs on the cover of Home & Gardens Magazine? Than this is the newborn session for you. I bring swaddle wraps and my camera gear to your home and we photograph your newest arrival (and you of course) in your own environment. Session pricing includes all the digital files from the session.
Interested in having your birth captured? Birth sessions have an unlimited amount of hours. I typically am on call from 37 weeks until delivery, this means I don't leave town and have my phone on loud 24/7. Birth imagery is delivered in both black and white and color. You can upgrade your birth session to also include video clips and a custom birth slideshow for an additional $400.
Contact us as soon as possible to get a date on the Calendar for a newborn studio session. These take place between 4 to 10 days new (for babies born as preemies these date ranges apply to their original due date and not the date they were born) Studio sessions offer more props, clothing selections for babies, and quicker transition times between setups.

and lots and lots of Home Births!
Lots and lots! I've tried to keep track and I keep thinking of more babies! I will update this to be a list of baby names when I can make sure I have remembered them all.
Maternity and newborn session were both amazing and easy going. Andrea has the patience and vision to make you feel comfortable and impressed with the end product. She never wants a client to leave without a memorable experience and a perfect picture. Thank you for capturing our little girl and the family. Can't wait to see more.Review #1:
"Andrea is a highly professional, and talented birth photographer. We were so blessed to be able to have her attend the birth of our son, in our home this past August. We will cherish the images she captured for the rest of our lives! It’s such an incredible experience to be able to revisit the birth of your child, and to be able to see it from a totally different perspective. Talk about empowering! So thankful for Andrea’s amazing work!" - Elizabeth K.
"I could not have asked for a better experience and birth video of our baby boy. Andrea was professional, caring, sensitive, knowledgeable and patient while we awaited the birth of our son. I would choose her a million times over!!!" - Lindsey W.
"One of the best decisions I have made was hiring Andrea to be my photographer for my birth photos. My son is about to be 3 years old and every time I look at the photos she took when he was born I go back in time and relive that day and for a short while my son is that baby again. I then went back and rehired to photograph my next baby and once again I was in awe of what she had captured. That’s the mark of a great photographer. Aside from her amazing photography skills, she’s just an amazing person; so easy to work with and professional. With Andrea as your photographer, you can focus on yourself and your baby, knowing that she is there to capture one of the most special days of your life." - Sammi C.
"We have used Andi for every important occasion in our life (engagement, birth, newborn, etc.). The moments that she captures are priceless. I couldn't imagine using anyone else to capture these precious memories with my family!" - Jessica L.
"Andrea does beautiful photography and has ample creative ideas. She has a lot of experience and is ready with suggestions to make things work when infants/little ones aren’t too cooperative. She is also very skilled at editing. A great choice for your family photography!!!" - Kendra F.
"I must say this has to be the most patient photographer I have ever witness. She is so sweet and does a great job of keeping babies calm and still (which is needed to have awesome photos). This will be our family photographer for many years to come! I can't wait to see the sneak peek from our shoot!" - Dawn B.
"Not only is Andrea a sweet person but she takes the time to work with you and get you the poses you like. She is AMAZING with children. The awesome part is that you go to get house where I can relax, change, pick backgrounds, clothes, etc and BE COMFORTABLE. Not like other places where you only have one outfit and everyone else at store is watching you or a time crunch. BUT truly the best part is how the pics come out!!! Hands down, beautiful work!" - Bianca M.
