Sometimes Ya Just Gotta Testify

There's this photographer that's got me all riled up, and I just want to shout it from the rooftops...... Andrea Lucero of "Thru Andi's Lens" What can I say about Andi? The enthusiasm, the respect, and the admiration I have for her is beyond compare. I've watched Andi grow as a person and then find her voice as an artist. This is no ordinary photographer ! In the 22 years that I have been working with the best photographers in the industry, it's rare that I see one that can capture , I mean REALLY "capture" someones soul the way that Andi can. I'm reminded of one of my favorites, Paolo Roversi, by the way that I feel that I can look into a picture of one of Andi's subjects and feel the empathy, the compassion, the love that they are feeling. I don't know too many photographers that can do that. Many culture's believe that a photographs "steal your soul", In Andi's case I like to think that you are hiring her to show you and your loved ones a "reflection" of your soul. We should all be so lucky, as to see the world "THRU ANDI'S LENS"

I need to fall in love with it, even if only for the moment, and for that I need to get to know you better.  Seriously, can you really get to know a anything in such a short time, enough to feel confident telling all your friends about it ?  Because that's what you are, you're my friends. 
And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well. 
I'm the chick that is going to tell you straight, but don't worry sweet pea, i…
