A little bit about me and my business:
My husband and I (Andrea Grelewicz Brakie) moved to the Triangle Area last year and we have absolutely fallen in love with the area!
I started Whispering Hope Ridge Photography a few years ago while living in Murray, KY, and I now look forward to continuing it here in North Carolina! That gorgeous girl next to me is my thoroughbred mare, Hope. She was my inspiration for starting the business and she continues to inspire me everyday!
I book a variety of photography sessions: engagement, maternity, families, seniors, events, but my absolute favorite will always be pet & equine sessions and related events. I love capturing the animal's unique personalities and the human/animal bond.
In my free-time I like to give back to rescues and shelters in my area by donating my time photographing animals in need of homes. In fact, if you are reading this and you have a favorite rescue/shelter that you would like to suggest, don't hesitate to contact me about them! I've found over the years that pictures aren't just worth 1,000 words, sometimes they can actually save a life!
I wouldn't be where I am without God and I hope to always reflect Him in everything I do. I hope my business reflects that as well; if it ever doesn't it's time for me to hang up my camera strap!
In short: I love God, I love animals, I love my husband and I absolutely love my job! I love the entire process, capturing a moment in time so people can treasure them for a lifetime. I love getting to know my clients and sharing laughs with them, and I love the smiles on their faces when they see their final product. I love making people feel good about themselves and giving them a memory frozen in time they can cherish forever.
