True to who you are, and true to who I am. It's not a compromise. It's a privilege. Working with you to get images we both love is the goal. 


When I was young I was certain I was going to be an art teacher. I loved to draw, paint and create. As I got older, however, I found myself drawn to the fast pace of advertising and design. I loved helping my clients achieve their creative goals, and it became my full-time job for nearly 18 years—and still plays a huge role in my business today.

Photography was a natural extension of design for me with its elements of composition and color. I could see the lines, shapes, patterns and hues that would make my subjects the star. The more I held my camera, the more in love I became with the art of photography. I registered True as a business in 2010 and took on portraiture work on the side, as I found that was my calling. Even though it wasn't my real job, it was my passion on the weekends—and everywhere in between. 

Fast forward to today, and I am proud to say that True Photography & Design is my full-time business. August 2015 marked the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey and I could not be more excited, even now. My goal is to help my clients shine—using the gifts & talents God has given me—while being intentional, respectful and true in all I do.

When you hire True, you hire me—Andrea Baumann. I hope to make your experience one of a kind.  I aim to provide you with full-service and no guesswork. It is my pleasure and joy to capture you as you truly are.
