Mama, Woman and Pole Dance Addict
I'm Andrea. Mama (german for mum) to a gorgeous 4 year old son Jamie, our angel baby Leia and our newest addition Jesse, who was born in February 2019.
My husband Franz and I moved from Germany to Perth, Australia in 2011 and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Our son was born in Perth in 2015 and we were expecting to add a little baby sister to our family in 2018.
Unfortunately at 23 weeks gestation we lost our baby girl Leia due to PPROM (Preterm Premature Rapture of Membranes). While in hospital, I promised myself I would keep her memory alive and find something to bring joy to other people and myself.
So I picked up my camera again, a hobby I always loved, but hadn't pursued since the birth of Jamie. Leia's Legacy Photography was born.

Why this mix of photography genres?
Photography is my therapy, my passion, my way to bring happiness to people. That's why I choose to photograph things I'm passionate about.
I love my family and our house is plastered with family photos. I want to give other families the gift of capturing those precious moments, wether it's a family fest, a birthday party or a a lazy day in the park. I'm passionate about capturing real emotions, photos that will transport you back to that moment.

Pregnancy & Babies
Having been pregnant 3 times, I know how unsexy you feel towards the end of your pregnancy. I was so happy when I got some beautiful photos of myself showing of that gorgeous belly. I want to make pregnant women feel beautiful and for them to see how gorgeous they look carrying new life under their heart. And of course I can't resist taking photos of squishy newborns and get a cuddle or two. I'm also a big advocate of normalising breastfeeding and therefore love a breastfeeding shoot celebrating this wonderful bond between mother and baby.

Yoga, Pole Dance and Boudoir
I'm a Pole Dance addict and I love Yoga. Some might think those two forms of exercise don't really go together, but they actually complement each other. Both require a lot of discipline, strength and flexibility and are great for body and mind. And neither of them require for women and men to adhere to a certain body shape, but embrace diversity and individuality.
I want to empower women (and men) and help them embrace their sensuality and self-love by giving them beautiful photos of themselves doing what they love doing. It's often daunting to step in front of the camera, but I will guide you through the poses that are most flattering for our body type and I can promise it will be a fun experience with lots of laughter.
