Andrea's Little Story

me & motherhood

Hi! I'm Andrea Moffatt, documentary photographer, owner of Little Story Studio, mom to 2 awesome boys, and elementary-teacher-on-extended-break. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me reading, gardening, or traveling to local sights with my boys. Some of our favorites are the science center, the local libraries, and our own "secret" stream where we love to toss rocks. Photographing my boys coming into their own has been a pure form of joy and gratitude for me. My photos never fail to reflect back to me a blessed life that is full of reasons to smile.

me & story

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the idea of Story. When I was little, the library was a familiar friend. As a child and young adult, I loved writing and storytelling. In my 20s, I fully devoted myself to teaching primary aged children to read and write well. I pursued and earned my masters of education in Children's Literature. When I started photography during my time home with my new baby, I didn't connect it to my former life as a literacy teacher. It took me about 4 years to realize the truth: my camera was just another storytelling tool, as my pen and stack of picture books had been years before.

When our children are grown and gone, stories will remain. They will be how we describe those we love most and how we show the world we belong together. Our world is often a dark place. Stories are light. 

Shouldn't the pictures on our walls and in our albums reflect back to us our most cherished moments? 

I believe that real life is beautiful and that everyone has a story to tell. I'd be honored to help you tell yours!
