I can’t say enough about Amanda. She somehow takes people who detest having their photos taken and makes these magical moments, frozen in time. She has the gift of catching the random moments, the unposed laughs and looks and freezes “real life” in the most beautiful way. She’s taken photos of my kids when they were little and squirmy and now, as they are big and filled with teenager angst! Her pictures are consistently beautiful and her calming and non-pushy demeanor makes even the most anxious subject, feel at ease.
Amanda has been taking my family pictures for over a year now. Her work is stunning. She is professional and captures beautiful family moments. She does exceptionally well with newborns and babies. Amanda is always open to any ideas her clients have and is great at working with your schedule. Her kind spirit and friendly nature makes for a great experience and she perfectly captures sweet family photos. I would highly recommend her.
Amanda has done several family sessions for us. Her photos do not disappoint!! She somehow has gotten this family of 6 all looking and smiling:). Would highly recommend!
Amanda did a combined newborn and family photo shoot for our family. We needed a photographer and I found her through recommendations on the jax mom blog. She was easy to communicate with and very reasonable. She was open to some specific photos I requested and worked with me to customize a package. Working with her on-site was wonderful. She even put my 2.5 year old at ease and we got amazing shots. Her photographs are absolutely stunning. Highly recommend!
Amanda did our family photos and the session was great! Amanda was great with the kids and quick to snap beautiful photos. She was so patient and kind! The prints were beautiful and still our favorite photos!
I highly recommend Amanda for all of your photo needs.
Amanda did a newborn session for my daughter and I was beyond amazed by the beauty of the pictures!
Her home studio was a calming environment that made my baby comfortable and happy. She was patient and so sweet with my daughter. She sets time aside for baby snuggles and/or nursing if needed.
When I received my prints, I was so pleased with the editing and quality. The poses were adorable!
I would recommend Amanda to anyone looking for an amazing photographer!!
