Capturing Moments that Matter.

That is my promise to every family I photograph. Photos are more than visual documentation of a time in your life. They can tell a story or trigger a feeling from that very moment. They help you remember your toddler’s giggle, the intoxicating smell of your sweet new baby, the joy of watching your daughter dance like nobody’s watching, the funny thing your hubby says to elicit your most authentic smile.

These are the moments that matter. The moments that your images will capture and make you feel that feeling again. Forever.

I love creating authentic, beautiful images that tell each family’s unique, sweet story. No perfectly posed, smiling at the camera, stuffy family photos. Instead, I shoot to capture raw emotion and honest connection between real families! I would love to spend some time helping to tell your beautifully un-perfect family story.

Well, hello there

welcome to sweetlife photography

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my site. I'm excited you're here!

My name is Amanda, and I am the heart and soul behind SweetLife Photography located in North Phoenix, AZ. I am a lifestyle photographer specializing in newborn and family photography. I am so grateful to get to be a mama to two amazing little ladies that motivate and inspire me everyday. It’s because of them that I have a soft spot for photographing young families and find such delight in capturing those short lived, tender, sweet moments and adorable details that we, as parents, want to always remember about our children.


I'd love for you to join me as I guide you through the entire SweetLife experience so you know just what to expect from me. My goal is to provide you with the details you need so you can quickly decide if I am the right photographer for you and your family.


Let's get started...

We Might be a good fit if


You want to remember the real things.

You love honesty and authenticity in photography, not trends, props and backdrops.


Everyone sitting and smiling is NOT your idea of a perfect photo. You want it all - the laughter, the tears and silly grins.


You realize that perfection is overrated, you love your reality and celebrate your family's imperfections.


You want a photographer who will guide and direct you, but not pose you in unnatural ways that don't really show off who you are.

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!
