Hey hey! Amanda here, a small town girl with bigger than life dreams to be a light in the world.


Most days you can find me snuggled up in our country home with my two little mini-me's, ages 4 & 2. The littles usually have me on an outside adventure, whether it be just taking care of our backyard chickens or out on the lake when my hubby is off. I'm all about yoga pants, because everyone feels their best in yoga pants, and protein shakes on the go. I am an introvert who has to force herself daily to break out of her shell, except when I’m shooting, then I’m chatty and full of life!

I get pretty excited about women's portraiture and both posed and lifestyle newborn and children documentation. I guess you could say I like working with the tough critics! Women, who in their nature don't see their true beauty and are always self critical and then snuggly, wiggly, fresh babies who can be the test of patience. But, they are soooo cute...and snuggly! I suppose it's the feeling of overcoming the obvious obstacles in each style and creating gorgeous works of art that just has me hooked! It's funny, I actually set my photography business aside just before starting a family and crazy enough, I relaunched because I'm driven to be a present momma while also being an entrepreneur, empowering women and creating emotion invoking art.

Whichever element of my photography brought you here, women's empowerment boudoir or family lifestyle documentation, contact me today to learn more about my portraiture experiences! 

Much love and excitement that you're here!

I’m happy to walk the walk! Everyone needs a picture they feel empowered and confident in! Plus, I’m in love with this swing…
