Hi, I'm Amanda.

I'm really happy you found me.

I'm a natural light, lifestyle photographer based on the beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State.

As your photographer, I want to tell your story. The story of your love, of your growing family; of you.

My passion is creating portraits that evoke emotion. Showcasing connection. Capturing all the details you don't want to forget from this time in your life. Your son's crazy long eyelashes, your daughter's dimple, the chubby little ankle rolls your baby has, the way your wife's hand fits so well in yours. 

I want your moments. 

I'm going to have you running after your kids, dancing with your husband, tickling the bellies of your babies and hopefully, forgetting that I'm there. Because my job is to make you comfortable, put you at ease so that you can be real. Connected. In the moment. Present with your family and significant other. Having fun.

If this sounds like what you're looking for, I'd love to work with you.

Let's create some memories together.

We had our sons senior pictures taken, he has autism, but she did a great job with him and we are over the moon with our pictures. We also got a good deal and all in fast time, she is wonderful to work with and a great person!
