My Services Include

Children’s Portraits

From the First Year Portrait all the way though High School, I want to help you celebrate all that your child is – because they matter. Are you looking for a photographer who will take the time to listen to your child in order to photograph them as they truly are?

Family Portraits

More than just a photo shoot, this unique experience is for those parents who want to slow down and capture their relationship with their children, just as they are now. It’s for those who’ve always wanted a beautiful family portrait for their wall that honours each individual.

Professional Portraits

Your Image Matters. Your online presence needs to remain an authentic representation of you and your brand – no matter what your Profession. How much would it mean to have an anchor to your truth? Stand up to stand out.


“I have never known a photographer who is as smart, creative, thoughtful and down to earth as Amanda. She works hard to make sure her clients will be happy with their portraits, and her attention to detail is what sets her apart from the others. She makes you feel comfortable in your sessions, and she is terrific with kids. Amanda’s talent is such a gift to the world.”


“Amanda made me feel comfortable throughout the process and I am very happy with the end result. She has photographed my children and captured their essence in a way that no photographer had ever done before. I can now see the difference between the branded baby mag photography and great artistic photography. I only wish I knew Amanda when my girls were born.”


“Amanda’s ability to capture the personality of the individual is remarkable. Her creative eye for composition and natural gift with the camera is evident in the quality product she is able to deliver every time. This is something many photographers dream about but Amanda makes it a reality.”


“Amanda held my hand, taking my children and I on a journey of rediscovery. I will forever be grateful.”

The Magic of Christmas Event

I absolutely love this event because it enables me to share in a little magic at this time of year. Not every child loves Santa “in the flesh” and boy, I’ve seen my fair share of children being dragged up to a stranger 3 times their size, in a red suit with a big white […]

Photographing the Photographer

I’ve had some lessons in vulnerability lately. As a Mama, a Wife, a Friend and a Professional Portrait Photographer it’s very easy for me to see the spark in others.  I can find something beautiful in everyone I meet. To me, beauty is something you feel; not something you see and “seeing” you is an […]
