say hello! »

Hi I’m Amanda and welcome to my page! I am a wife, a mother of two, and a newborn, child and family photographer based in Marshall, Minnesota. Ten years ago, after my first child came into the world my love and passion for digital photography was also born. I became obsessed with capturing every little detail from her tiny little toes to the cute way she scrunched her nose when she smiled. My family has always been my driving force and my two wonderful littles are always front and center in everything I do.

I have been in the photography business over eight years now. I am trained in newborn safety and posing as well as gentle soothing techniques. I am also experienced in working with children who have disabilities. My photography education over the years includes workshops, trainings and mentorships from experts across the US. I bring passion, joy and creativity to my photography, reflecting the joy I see in you and your loved ones! 

When not enveloped in all things photography you will find me reading; paper books only, you know, where you can actually turn the page, NOT drinking coffee (although my beautiful children sometimes make me think I should!) and engaged with my loving family.

Here's a snapshot into my world.

A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life

Hello, fellow bookworms!  When I am not editing all your amazing photographs you can find my head in a book, and a real book not a tablet.  I love feeling the pages in my hand and escaping into another world with my favorite (or sometimes least favorite) characters.

I know it sounds cliche but my family is my entire world.  They will always be  my reason why. Nothing inspires me more than watching my children grow (way to fast by the way), learn and use their imaginations.  Without their love and support I would not be where I am today.

My Family

Another one of my favorite things to do is go on adventures with my family. Whether exploring our local parks and eateries (we have a big sweet tooth) or traveling somewhere new I know we will always have fun!

My Favorite Things

My family looks forward to working with Amanda every year & every occasion! She’s fun, spontaneous, & you never know what she’ll capture but the pictures are always the best! She’s open to suggestions and is up for new & unique locations & ideas. She always makes us feel special. We just keep inviting her back and are always excited to see what is next!

Amanda was absolutely amazing to work with! She really thinks of everything to make a newborn session go as smoothly as possible, not to mention the pictures turned out amazing! Will definitely be coming back and would recommend to family and friends!
