About the Artist

Meet Amanda

Well hey there! I’m so happy you’re here…

I'm Amanda. Chief chaos coordinator (at home and on shoots), animal lover, girl mom, Phoenix native. Yep. Born + raised. Photography has become as much a part of my life as the air I breathe. Family life and photography are my passions. Documenting moments in the life of a family in a natural, joyful and authentic way, is my happy place. I love creating connection by guiding my clients into poses that feel natural rather than stiff and forced.  As a result, I deliver galleries full of images that truly capture the personality and love of a family. 

I would love the chance to work with you… take a peek around and see if I am a good fit for your family!

Love Letters

from loved clients

Our Search is Over

“Amanda, you’re awesome! I was nervous at first, until I saw how great you were with our boys. Your professional, confident and experienced techniques were a pleasure to watch and work with. This allowed us to just trust the process and let you do all the work. The photos turned out gorgeous! Our search for a local photographer is over!"

-Beverley & Chris Wolter

The Right Mom for the Job

"We wouldn't have wanted anyone else to photograph our newborn session! Your easy going manner and professionalism made us feel comfortable right away. As a mom, you were a pro at helping to soothe and swaddle James for photos. When we needed to break, you took the most adorable photos of our Kiwi which we love as much as the newborn photos! For us it was so important to have natural looking, in-home photographs, and you nailed it. We love every single photo!”

Such a Joy

Amanda, you were such a joy to work with! Thank you again for being so flexible with scheduling and made planning our shoot a piece of cake! Your  easygoing and personable demeanor took the stress out of family pictures - you were so prepared and knew right away where to shoot and what poses were best for us. The smarties were a hit and definitely helped my strong willed two year old stay focused and happy. Thank you for capturing special moments that we will cherish for a lifetime!!

I’m just blown away!

“Oh my goodness! Amanda, thank you so so so much! I’ve still only looked at them on my phone but I’m just blown away! We can’t wait to see these gorgeous pictures printed and hanging in our home! You captured their personalities perfectly-and even one of our very favorite silly face that Lucy makes. Thank you so much for your time and all of the precious photos. We definitely look forward to another session with you!”

Thank you!
