About Me

Get to Know Me a Little Better

Hi, I am Cindy McAndrew.

(And that's my family up there!)

I am a glass half full kind of person… unless it’s coffee and I’ve already pounded it! I was raised in Grand Island, NE and have gradually moved East to Lincoln and to the Omaha area. I'm a proud Badger mom in Bennington, NE!

I have past experience as an Art Director of a lifestyle magazine and was a Creative Director for a jewelry company, doing all things girlie. I segued over to real estate photography and have helped apartments look their swankiest.

I love working with families, seniors, and couples and getting to know you all! I'm definitely a people person, so if you book a photography session with me, be prepared... I will chat your ear off! I'm not into super stiff, micromanaged posing, I'm much more laid back than that and think we get much better energy in photos when we can have fun together and you can be yourself!

I have a wonderful (& handsome!) husband, two kiddos and a dog (who is even more handsome than my husband!). Bless them for embracing my crazy ideas and being my daily photography models!
