About

I love to photograph people in natural places, natural light, and natural poses. Because I believe that somewhere between a glamour shot and a mug shot is "the shot"—the one that reveals the beauty of the moment, rather than manufacturing it.   I believe pictures tell a story, and that story does not have to be, “look how great we all could pose.” I know that childhood is fleeting, family is our most treasured gift, and our work is endless—and a few good photos can remind us how lucky we really are.  I believe that nature is more than a backdrop; it’s also a teacher, a confidant, and yeah, a mother. 

On that note, I believe moms should get in the picture. I think women are most beautiful when they are doing something they like, or looking at someone they love.   Children will one day cherish that picture of you with them. I know, as I lost my mom and carry a photo of the two of us around with me. So please, get in the shot.

I believe in giving back, and that I get as much as I give, through volunteer work, community service, and donating my time and talent to nonprofits.  

I believe the most interesting person in the world is the one I’m with at the moment, and the most beautiful photo is the one that means something to you.    

Cheers, 

Amanda
