Dre Chez Photography

A little bit about me...

Hey there. :) My name's Andreyna Sanchez, but I go by Dre. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my daughter, dog and chickens. I've loved taking photos and making videos ever since I was a little kid-- I feel really fortunate to be able to do this for a living and get by in this life with a camera in my hands. What I love most about photography and video is really getting to know people. When you observe and study someone through the viewfinder, you really get to see who they are. I want to know who the people are that I'm capturing and I want them to feel like they can be completely themselves. I try my best to create an atmosphere of trust and acceptance so that everyone can feel comfortable; I know how the prospect of a photoshoot can feel like anything but. My hope is that through this relaxed approach, we can end up with photos that truly represent who you are; as a person, as a couple, as a family. Whenever I'm shooting, I'm searching for honest, open and vulnerable moments. I hope you can let me into your world. Even if it's just for a brief time, we can capture those moments and remember them forever.

xx, Dre

Most families would be apprehensive booking a photo shoot with their toddler, and would definitely not be keen to add animals in to the mix. We lost our apprehension in the very first minute of our shoot!
From the first to the last moment we had the most amazing time and Dre made sure there was a happy and loving atmosphere!
We did not feel pressured and all photos arose out of the moment, rather than being staged. The emotions captured are all real! The photos are testimony of a beautiful morning on the farm, and extremely special as it was one of the last mornings we spend with little Anna as an only child.
The photos mean the world to us, as the experience of the shoot was so positive, and rather than us trying to stage we had the best time as family with all our animals included!
We can’t wait for the next shoot. It will be a time where we can concentrate on our family without distractions, simply having fun and then being rewarded with extremely beautiful pictures that have captured the very special time!
