“Working with Amanda has been an incredible experience. Amanda’s extensive experience enables her to connect with people from all walks of life and capture the true essence of an individual. The photos Amanda captured of our school, staff and students have exceeded our expectations. She is an absolute joy to work with. Thank you Amanda for your contribution to our cause.”

“Amanda is a true professional, she made me feel at ease and made me realise that a photo session should be a joyful experience and this translates into the finished result – natural looking, amazing quality pictures. Amanda sees the most beautiful part of you and captures it with love. You will treasure her pictures forever and you will keep wanting to look at them. I wish I knew of her back when I got married but then again there are so many more memorable moments and special occasions to come where I will certainly call upon her services.”


“Amanda is both artist and muse, a powerful combination. With this gift she gently sees to the depth of you and your intention and this in turn inspires you to feel safe and authentic in your space. The definition of the expression ‘Salt of the Earth’ generally denotes a person that is reliable, trustworthy, kind, straightforward, brings flavour and of great worth. This in my opinion describes Amanda’s Salt Mama and as such I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a photographer for yourself and your business to be seen. “

“Oh I just love LOVE what Amanda captured for us. What an invaluable gift to see my family, MY boys exactly as they were at that point in time. I am so grateful to have found her to make such wonderful memories because she didn’t just take our photos, you gave us a warm, fun and loving experience to let my babies’ happiness shine. I can’t wait to do it again soon and in years to come! Thank you ♡”

“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.”
