Well Hello

I'm So Happy You're Here

Heyyyy! I’m Amanda. 

Not gonna lie, writing this ABOUT ME page is awkward for me. Because, it’s not really about me. This is about you and figuring out if I am the right the photographer for you.

So, let’s do this. 

First and foremost…. I’m a mom. I truly believe it’s the best job in the world. No seriously. I mean, yes it’s trying and tough and not for the weak willed (like at all), but I adore the journey. I actually started this whole “photography thing” when my oldest daughter was brand new. I simply couldn’t fight the overwhelming desire I had to capture her everyday cuteness and my ol’ 2009 iPhone camera just wasn’t cutting it. Enter… my first fancy camera. Six years, 3 fancy cameras and a second baby girl later (yep, #girlmomlife), photography is so much more than taking pictures for me. It’s become a solution to a problem so many of us Mama’s share; to find a way to freeze time. Just push pause and enjoy this very moment forever.

I specialize in simple newborn, baby, child and maternity photography. My goal is to create timeless fine art image that you can cherish for a lifetime. I’m all about capturing family life simply and naturally. Whether on-location or in-studio, there are never any forced “say cheese” smiles, 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. I LIVE for real-life family moments. Real connection. I love when little boys dig in the dirt, and little girls are excited to show me how their dress twirls. I can’t get enough baby yawns, snuggles, tickle fights and impromptu dance parties.

It is with my whole heart that I believe there is nothing more valuable in this world than family and the memories we create with them – photographs preserve a moment and allows us to relive it as often as we want. I would love the chance to freeze time for your family.

I’m excited to meet you and your tribe!
