My name is Amanda and I LOVE creating beautiful images with my camera.
I see beauty everywhere and love sharing what I see.
I believe EVERYONE can look good in pictures... yes... everyone!
Someone once told me that children show what they’re passionate about from a young age, you just have to watch them.
I’ve always loved photographs.
I first picked up a camera when I was a tween. It was an SLR film camera and I was hooked. But it wasn’t the camera that won my heart… it was the images I could compose, light and create. Pictures have always fascinated me. I’ll admit it, I’m a reformed magazine hoarder. Fashion magazines were my favorite. I could stare at the photos for hours.
In college I took my camera everywhere. I honed my craft in classes and the darkroom and spent large amounts of money on film developing.
After college, I worked in the TV News industry for several years and spent less time taking photographs and more time working with video. Once I got married and had a baby… I started taking lots of photos again and my photography passion started to re-ignite.
My SLR was broken so I got a point-and-shoot camera and photographed EVERYTHING. People started asking me to photograph their special occasions, so I bought my first DSLR and my business was born.
The more I talk to people the more I realize that a lot of people don’t like to have their photo taken. I believe everyone can look good in pictures… people just need good lighting, good posing and time to get comfortable in front of the camera.
