NEW ULM Images by Drea, a new photography studio, will open on Thursday, March 10, in the upstairs of T & K Event Planners and Decorators in downtown New Ulm.
Andrea Budahn, owner of Images by Drea, holds a degree in professional photography. She has worked in photography for the last seven years.
Images by Drea will host an open house on Thursday, March 10 through Saturday, March 12 at the studio at 20 N. Minnesota St. Thursday and Friday hours are 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Budahn, who moved to New Ulm last winter with her family, previously worked in the Twin Cities Metro area. She shot photos of babies, children, graduates, families, weddings and other events.
Budahn feels her previous work was successful, but she is now is pursuing her dream of having her own studio.
"New Ulm is perfect," Budahn said. "It is such a friendly town, and I feel it is a great opportunity to establish myself here as a photographer as well as a member of the community."
Images by Drea specializes in photographing maternity, babies, children, graduates and families. Any session booked during the open house will receive a special offer. Budahn's photographs can be viewed at www.imagesbydrea.com or on Facebook at Images by Drea.
