As a mama one day I know I'll miss the sound of those chubby feet flying down my hallway. As hard as I try to hold on to those memories, it'll always be images that bring me back to the beauty and chaos of having a little one. 

Regardless of where you are in life, whether it's celebrating an anniversary, bringing home your first baby,  or fur baby, those moments are deserving of beautiful photography. My aim is to create imagery that will always pull you back to genuine moments. Imagery that will awaken your senses allowing you to recall the little details of those long forgotten days. 

Documenting your love is an honor and absolute pleasure.

Thank you so much for capturing our family so beautifully again! The photos turned out so great! We definitely had a laugh at a few of them, particularly Audrey. But you caught each of their little personalities like always! We love them!

Amanda’s photography is timeless, elegant, and personal. Not only is the product she produces beautiful, but she is also a wonderful presence and person. We feel very lucky to be clients of Amanda’s and to be able to look back on special moments in life through her photographs.

Her photos online showcase her talent which is just one of the reasons I chose her as our photographer, but I’m an even bigger fan now having worked with her. Just, ugh! She's freakin amazing and I would recommend her to anyone.

As we all know, the weather in the Midwest can be quite temperamental. If rain, snow or thunderstorms are in the forecast, I will reach out via email or text to discuss rescheduling options. In the peak season like fall, rescheduling may be difficult. My best advice is to aim for sessions in the summer when the weather is abundantly better, days are longer and schedules are flexible. 

Dates tend to book pretty quickly - especially in the fall when the days are shorter and weather is varies widely. The sooner you reach out, the more likely you’ll be able to have a prime date. 

To reserve your date, a contract and retainer are required. If something comes up and you need to reschedule, reach out and I’m happy to help. 

I understand, finding the perfect clothing for your session can feel utterly daunting, but stop the Pinterest scroll because I am here to help you. 

Part of the booking process with me is having access to my “Style Guide” and “Session Guide” that are both filled with information on how to make the most out of your time with me. 

If the Princess of Wales has trouble keeping her kids in check, then I think we’re all in good company. But honestly, even photographers need help during our photo sessions. We're not models after all. 

My aim for our sessions is to get a few great group shots. We’ll always start out with a formal because everyone is fresh and excited. Once we’ve captured those, its completely okay if the kids start letting loose. In fact, everyone will enjoy it more because that’s what we’re aiming for, real, genuine moments. 

After your session, you’ll receive a link to your online gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery serves multiple purposes. It’s a great way to share your photos with friends and family. The gallery also makes ordering heirloom prints, albums, and canvases extremely straightforward and simple.
