– About –

Hello and welcome! My name is Amanda, and I’m a mom, wife, photographer, maid, chauffeur, teacher, cheerleader, and therapist. Ok, so maybe that was a bit much! Basically what it boils down to is that I’m a mom of two handsome, and very energetic little boys. I’m also a wife to my amazing and supportive husband. And amongst all the chaos, photography is my outlet.


I am in love with displaying life’s exciting details through photography and preserving memories for generations to come. I pride myself and my business on being a full service photography studio that guides my clients through every step of the process in a fun and exciting way that caters to my clients.


I also offer quality service and experiences paired with fine art prints, canvas gallery wraps, luxury albums, and many other heirloom items for my clients to pass down through generations.

If you're anything like me, I love reviews! I'm proud to say I have a 5 star rating on both Google and Facebook!

What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever,
