As a mom, I know how important it is to have your most precious memories and chapters of your life documented. Those pieces of your story deserve to be captured in time so that they can be passed down and live on forever.
Whether it's a senior year celebration, or your baby's first birthday, it is one of my greatest joys to tell heartwarming stories through the art of photography. Share with me your vulnerability, trust, and creativity, and I will do my best to represent that honestly and beautifully. With the eye of an artist and the sensitivity of a friend.
I am a seasoned photographer with over 10 years of experience, specializing in maternity, newborn, family, and senior photography. The studio is located in beautiful historic Downtown Clare, Mi but I service the entire Central Michigan area and shoot outdoor sessions mainly in Mt. Pleasant, Mi and Clare.
When I'm not shooting, I spend my time with my hilarious husband Nick, my beautiful daughter Johanna, my little middle, Jack, and our newest addition, Elliot. The five of us live in an old beautiful 1880's farmhouse and we're always finding new and creative ways to put our spin on it. I love graphic design & typography work, and if you really want to be friends, let's get Mexican food!
Amanda did our keepsake newborn session and wow I give her a 10 out of 5
First impressions walking into her studio it had a very relaxed feel she had everything set up and ready to go for us when we arrived. Amanda is a very kind person that actually took the time to talk to us, she was also great with our daughter she barley woke up during the outfit/background changes. Lastly the photos turned out better then anticipated! I would recommend her to anyone we made an hour and a half drive and was totally worth it!
I don’t have enough good things to say about Amanda. Her ability to capture priceless images behind her camera is truly amazing. After an incredibly hard pregnancy, she made me feel human and beautiful during our maternity pictures and did a phenomenal job with our little peanut and family during our newborn pictures.
She has such a kind heart and does this because of her passion for the art. She has a creative eye and knowledge of lighting that most photographers now-a-days are lacking and these two things are KEY for beautiful photos. Traditional or candid, ANY kind of session you could ask for, I am confident that not only would you have a great time with Amanda, you would receive some of the best quality photography of your life.
