Motherhood | Newborn | Family

simple. natural. timeless.

I am a Phoenix, AZ newborn, child, maternity and family photographer offering custom studio, in-home and outdoor lifestyle photography sessions. I take a natural, simplistic approach to creating timeless, honest images that capture the true beauty of motherhood and family life through real moments and real connection. 

SweetLife Photography Studio is centrally located in North Phoenix and serves the north Phoenix and Scottsdale area.

About the Artist

Meet Amanda

Well hey friend!

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.

Motherhood, family life and photography are my truest passions. As a mom, it is my soulful desire to capture my girl's childhood that continues to motivate, inspire and drive my family photography art.

Documenting moments in the life of a family in a natural, honest and simple way, is my happy place. I love creating connection by guiding my clients into poses that feel unposed 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 hope when you look at my images you see a single moment in time and a story unfolding. One as unique as each family I meet, home I enter, and childhood I document. If you'll allow me, I would love to be that person for you. It's with the heart and soul of a Mom that I will create beautifully captured moments for you to cherish forever.

Love Letters

from beloved 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!”

-Elise Donnelly Stein

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!
