It’s about capturing the heart and soul of the family, freezing moments in time that hold true emotions and memories. It goes beyond just taking pictures—it becomes a reflection of the family's love, connection, and the shared experiences that shape their lives.

Authentic family photography

Friends, I think you are in the right place. 
This is where stories are told, and storytellers learn to tell them.

“Life is a song to me.” ― Dolly Parton


It should feel like the rain in the summer,
the wind in the fall,
the snowdrops in the winter,
and the song in the spring.

It should be the time when those intimate moments are captured, so that you may look back on them forever. It should be comfortable. It should be safe. It should shine. 

Getting family photos should be a passionate and fun experience, not a hassle. 

Everyone deserves photos they love.

I am here to create a safe and joyful space for clients & creators. To make you feel seen, to help you and your family prosper, and to go forth and shine. Let’s be real, we all want to shine. Ultimately, it’s my mission to be your new friend, and capture your story or assist you in telling stories. Creating magic is not so far out of reach in this wild, wonderful world. Those quick and tiny moments between you and your spouse, or the sparkling light in your child’s eyes? That’s real magic. What if we could bottle that up and save it forever? 

Let me make a promise to you

Everyone deserves a space where they feel seen.

“Amanda was incredible to work with! Everything from start to finish was so buttoned up. Clear and organized. Amanda's styling is always perfect and I had the best! Our session WAS A DREAM! We ALL felt incredibly present and stress-free. Even being the first time we had met in person and I felt like I knew her for years!”

“Amanda was so kind, and welcoming, and made my girls feel like they had a new bestie for an hour! I was so nervous that they would have a bunch of fits during the shoot but Amanda was so great at redirecting them, making it a game, and chatting with them like they were her own. Great communication before the session!”

I can't even express how thankful I am that I found Amanda. Her ability to capture the most time-stopping moments is INCREDIBLE. The way she communicates & guides posing is so effortless. I can't recommend her enough. I drove almost 6 hours to have her take my family photos, and would have done it again and again!”

“I have been taking Amanda’s mentorship for well over a year now and it has been amazing for myself as an artist and my business. The best investment I have made even to this day keeps on adding more information and education to the course. I am forever grateful for Amanda and what she does for others!”
