about Amanda

Sunlight is my love language

Light and color drive most of what I do in the photography world. I am drawn to those gorgeous sunsets, which I believe make all the difference in how I photograph my families, and how they feel during our time together.

Being in nature, connecting to peace and togetherness drives my style and approach. I'm all about meaningful portraits, joyful and uncluttered that you will look back on for generations and adore.

I also want to make portrait photography for busy moms and dads as painless as possible.

These are YOUR MEMORIES - you should not look back on them and have a feeling of being rushed or stressed out. That's why I'm there during the whole process, from planning wardrobe so you all look amazing and FEEL AMAZING to delivering your beautiful and timeless gallery.

4 Fun Facts

2004

Married My High School Sweetie

Yes, I know - super sappy! It was all in God's purpose. Matt is my anchor.

2010

Birth of Our First Baby, Esther

She is now almost 12! Time is a thief. Just yesterday I was making her baby food, it seems.

Time moves quickly, which is why I love photography and the ability to freeze it.

In College

At Ohio State

I studied English and Art History. Believe you me, I kinda wish I had studied Business and Accounting, cause I think they would have been more helpful in the long-run, hah!

Things I adore:

Thai Food, Beaches, Summer

I know, everyone makes a huge fuss about Fall. But I LOVE SUMMER.

Summer is truly where I feel at home, and if you've never had your family portraits done in summer, I say it's about time!
