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!
