“Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. Be silent.” Rumi
Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Amanda Waschevski and I’m on a mission to help you exist in print, just as you are. I want to help you understand that you matter enough to have a portrait of you hanging on your wall. I especially want to photograph the Mother who looks through their family albums and sees they are missing because they avoided the camera – I know exactly how that feels. Love and celebrate who you are right now for the people who love you – your family, your friends, your children, yourself. Let me show you that “unphotogenic” is not a real word.
I’ve found that creating art enables me connect to others on a very real level. There is a quietness to portraiture, it fills me with peaceful stillness in an increasingly hectic world. My favourite subjects are children…and I love to photograph them just as they are, everyday. I believe that everyone is a work of art when they allow themselves to be seen honestly and wholly.
Authenticity, Substance over Superficiality, Self-Worth, Value, Integrity, Individuality, Strength – these are all traits of my brand, myself and my clients.
My hope is for everyone to have an anchor to their own truth hanging on her wall – a truth that you love and love to look at so that you can show your children how to love themselves for who they are, not just how they are.
Accreditation is important to me. I am a Certified Professional Photographer and current President of the Professional Photographers Association of Queensland (P.P.A.Q.) and a current Blue Card Holder.
Giving back keeps me connected to my heart. I am proud to be a photographer with Heartfelt – giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births or have children with serious and terminal illnesses and personally founded People of Ipswich – the gift of powerful, uplifting portraits to those fighting or surviving cancer and other life threatening illnesses during their most fragile time.
Thank you for visiting my website.
