From Moments to Memories: Andre Toro's Signature Studio Photography

March 20, 2024 Estimated reading time: 5 min

Life moves too quickly not to capture it beautifully. 

My photography is so much more than snaps and smiles – it’s emotive storytelling in every frame. 

It’s that spontaneous laughter you can still hear years later when you walk by the print on your wall. 

It’s the secret you whispered to your wife during your family photoshoot.

It’s the leftover cake on your one-year-old’s face after they smashed their face into their first birthday cake. 

Those small moments make our lives so much richer, so much more meaningful. We owe it to ourselves to capture them and freeze them in time. Because life moves so fast, and we often forget those little moments. 

That’s where Andre Toro Photography comes in. Your family’s special moments, captured in the most beautiful way. Let me tell you what makes my photography so special. 

The Magic Behind ATP

Professional photographers will facilitate breathtaking moments, but the best photographers will capture so much more than just a photo. When I shoot your family photos or your maternity photos, I’m shooting art. That’s the magic behind Andre Toro Photography. 

My portraits with a purpose will have you looking back, tearing up as you remember that special time you spent with your family, or your partner, or even with yourself. 

It’s more than a photo – it’s a memory frozen in time.

And memories are so, so precious. 

As we age, it becomes harder and harder to remember the details. What did your little boy’s smile look like when he was a toddler? How did you little girl dance at 10 years old? Those tiny details fade as time passes… but they don’t have to. That’s the beauty of family photography: you can capture life’s most precious moments and frame them. And when you walk by, years later, you’ll be reminded of the most special time in your life. 

The Andre Toro Photography Vision

There’s one secret truth to photography I’ve learned over the years: each and every session is different. It sounds obvious, right? But not every photographer is willing to go with the flow and break from their shot list. 

But to me, there’s something so beautiful about capturing life as it is. As a mom and partner, I know that life’s little moments are worth capturing as much as life’s biggest moments. 

The expecting mother and her daughter.

The newly engaged couple capturing their love and their sweet little dog, their first puppy together. 

The little moments make life so much sweeter, and recognizing their beauty is kind of like a superpower. 


That’s why, when families and couples visit my studio, I strive to keep an open mind. I want your family’s energy and your special connection to guide our photoshoot. During the photo shoot, I’ll capture those candid moments – and then offer posing suggestions. It’ll feel natural, but you’ll walk away loving the way you look in your portraits. 

The best part about my job? Each of the families who spend time with me, become a special part of my heart. It’s a blessing and a privilege to capture your moments, your beauty, your connection and your essence.

Studio Family Photography

As a fellow mom and partner, there’s nothing more important to me than capturing your family and your connection. I know that feeling – when your soul craves those timeless memories, the ones you can hand down to your children. That’s what drives my photography: a strong desire to capture life’s most beautiful moments. 

There’s something special about a studio space for family portraits. It’s a dedicated, quiet space that offers reflective time with your family. In between the hectic after-school pick-ups and kids’ activities and work, the hours you’ll spend in my Lexington studio will be a break. A peaceful reprieve from responsibilities and to-do lists – a time for you and your loved ones to connect. And there’s nothing more special than capturing that love behind the lens.


Maternity Studio Photo Shoots

Pregnancy is nothing short of a work of art – and it deserves to be celebrated as such. This beautiful, fleeting time in a woman’s life often goes by in a blink of an eye.  

From the moment those tiny kicks flutter to life to the anticipation of holding your little one in your arms, every stage of this miraculous journey is a testament to the beauty of life itself. My maternity photos capture you and your family in this special time. 

My editorial-style maternity portraits are as breathtaking as they are unforgettable – and best of all, they put mom-to-be front and center, showcasing her true inner beauty.

It’s All About the Experience

When you book with Andre Toro Photography, it’s all about the experience. You’re not just booking a photographer for the day, you’re booking the whole experience. What do I mean by this? 

Well, it all starts the second you get in touch. I want to get to know YOU and your family. I want to make your dreams and visions come true! We’ll speak over the phone, and then I’ll come to your house for our in-home consultation. 

During the in-home consultation, we’ll plan your studio photo shoot. This is your chance to ask all of your questions – and my chance to get to know you and your family! We’ll talk about what you hope to get out of your studio photo shoot and how the magic happens. 

Many of my clients are worried about their outfits on the day of their photo shoot. When I visit you at your home, we’ll go through your wardrobe and pick out your outfits in advance – and if you need something, I’ll help you find the right look online. That way, when photo shoot day arrives, you can drive over to my top-rated studio in Lexington, stress-free. 


In addition, I’ll ask you where you may want to display your art and measure your walls, as we offer complementary designs and installations for all my clients. 

When you arrive at the studio, the magic begins. And by magic, I mean the pampering process… Because mamas, when was the last time you had your hair and make-up done? The pampering starts in the privacy of my studio, and once you’re done, the whole family will join. 

After the session, we all sit down in my comfortable space dedicated to viewing photos and picking your favorites. From start to finish, it’s a seamless, stress-free experience – just like it should be!

Let’s Get to Know Each Other!

Time is fleeting – and in the midst of our busy lives, it’s easy to lose track of the important things in life. The most valuable things in this life are our connections with our family and our loved ones. You will never regret setting aside time to capture those memories. 


Every photo session with me is a unique, special and unforgettable experience. That’s because I’m a mom and partner, too, not just a photographer. I know what it’s like, craving those tangible, beautiful memories of my loved ones. The type that sits on your wall and brings tears to your eyes each time you pass. 

There’s no time like the present.
