I'M AMANDA

Fueled by equal parts Starbucks runs and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. 

I believe in authentic moments and heartfelt conversations on front porches. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments. I believe in images that are yearning to be printed, framed and hung on walls of your home. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.
