Life is hectic!

As a mom, I know how hectic life gets and how quickly time passes. You want timeless photos of your newborn but don't know where to start to document this amazing but busy time in your life.

  • Not sure you want to be in the photos?
  • not sure what everyone should wear?
  • Concerned that your little one won't cooperate?

You come to the studio, I'll take care of everything else.




Amanda is truly the BEST! My newborn was, at times, a bit difficult, but Amanda was very professional in soothing my baby. No doubt we will go back to her for future photos.

When I got to the studio, our little one was very alert and totally awake. I tried to feed her and rock her to sleep with no luck. So, I handed her off to Amanda, and she soon had my newborn asleep and ready for photos. Truly a baby whisper!

So happy we had the opportunity to work with Amanda! She is so warm and inviting that we felt very comfortable at the photo shoot! Our little man was very fussy, and she had so much patience with him that she still got amazing shots!

Hi, I’m Amanda.


As a mom myself, I know we all have HUGE to-do lists, especially when you have a new little one.

As a trusted newborn photographer, let me take one thing off your plate, your newborn's photos. I guide my clients through the process step by step. So all you have to do is show up and enjoy the day.
