Meet the Artist

Let's get to know each other

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. 

Motherhood, family life and photography are my truest passions. As a mom, it is my soul’s 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 put my heart and soul into my work. I am not your typical photographer and I don’t offer your ‘typical’ portrait photography services. I strive to create unique and emotionally driven art that my families will be able to cherish for generations.

I specialize in lifestyle newborn, child and family photography. I want to create authentic, beautiful images that show your family just as they are. No perfectly posed, Say Cheese smiles here. Instead, real emotion and real families! I would love to spend some time capturing your beautifully imperfect family to showcase the beauty of motherhood and family life through real moments and real connection. I love barefeet, silly faces and allowing children the freedom to be themselves. 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 – lifestyle 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.

Now you’ve heard a bit more about my story, I would love to hear from you and chat about how I can help tell yours.

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.
