I do a lot more than just snap photos. It's my goal from the first time we make contact to make sure you have no fears come session day and that you leave feeling confident!

With years of modeling experience under my belt, I am an expert at posing and capturing your best angles to deliver a gallery you'll love.

Absolutely love working with Amanda! She is so patient and always has the best ideas for photos. Would come back to her for pictures 1,000 more times.


My S/O and I took our maternity photos with Amanda and this was our first time doing anything like this but Amanda helped us with posing and capturing the moment in a way that looked so natural! Her editing is great and she is overall a joy to be around. We can’t wait to continue to get our photos done by her as our little guy grows.


Amanda took photos of myself and my boyfriend and she did a PHENOMENAL job!!! She was so fun and lively, as well as adventurous! She got literally the perfect shots that tell our love story. Book her up, she’s worth every Penny!
