The Amanda Ellen Photography Experience


During your session I will guide you through poses while also giving prompts for natural candid reactions.  Don't worry about "knowing how to pose".  I will be with you every step of the way.


Once your session is through, sit back and relax while I edit your images to perfection. I can also help select and order display pieces and prints for your home.


The first step is simple I promise! Take a look around my site to see if I am a good fit for you and your family. Then go ahead and fill out my contact form at the bottom and say hello! I want to hear all about your session needs and ideas. I look forward to getting to know YOU! Contact me today and let’s get started!

Say Hello

Step 1 of 5

Are we a good fit?  Then lets get you on my calendar! Once you reach out I will send over full session and investment details and you can choose which option is right for you. We will find a day and time that works for both of us and I will then send over a contract and invoice to finish your booking.


Step 2 of 5

Time to get excited! You are on my calendar so now what?  I will ask a few questions to assist me in planning a session perfect for you.  I have many props and a client closet available for use during your session for some creative sessions (such as couture gowns, mermaid tails, and superheros). I also provide styling assistance for all sessions if desired. A day or two before your session I will send a reminder with the location

Preparing for Your Session

Step 3 of 5

Yay, the day of you session has arrived! We will meet at the chosen location (this will be included in your reminder). I will have your session set up and ready to go. If using wardrobe from my client closet I will have it ready and steamed for you. I will guide you through posing while keeping things light and stress free. You and your loved ones are in good hands.

Session Day

Step 4 of 5

You did it! Now that we had fun taking some amazing photographs for your family to treasure, what can you expect? After your session I will email a proof gallery within a couple days. This gallery will be unedited except for one or two. You will select your favorites and once you finish let me know. I will then begin the editing process and you will have your finished portraits in 2-4 weeks. I will email over the final gallery for you to download. If you wish to order prints and products we can do that at this time.
