Get To Know Me »

Super excited that you're here! I specialize in newborn, maternity and family photography in the Greater Lansing area, but families travel to me from all over the state!! ..... Fun fact about me is that I am actually a pediatric RN and worked with very sick infants at U of M's amazing children's hospital in their cardiac ICU! 

I am a wife and busy mom to two beautiful little girls, so I know first hand how important it is to capture life's greatest moments because they truly do slip away all too fast! I find myself looking at my girl's images on my walls and wondering where did the time go.  I am so thankful I am able to have these special memories on my walls to remind myself to live in the moment and love life.

Having a daily reminder of your most precious things in life is what I provide for your family! My exclusive maternity wardrobe and family style guide allow you to relax knowing I have everything covered! Now is the time to embrace every little flutter and baby kick, while I take care of the rest and create memorable images for you and your growing family! My calm and relaxing newborn sessions, where I provide custom props and styling, is the icing on the cake, the moment you, momma, have worked so hard to get to! All you have to do is follow my preparation guide, come and be in the moment as you experience this one of a kind and memorable experience with your new family. And, my fun and energetic family sessions are where we get to capture those ever fleeting moments to be remembered every time you look at your walls.

Whether you're having an intimate gathering in my beautiful, in home studio or out on nature's path with me,  I want you to look back at these memories we create together just as if it happened yesterday! Let's do what I love and turn your family's growing memories into beautiful, one of a kind framed art, and create heirloom albums to enjoy and love every single day! Whether you're bringing a new baby into this world, celebrating your baby's first birthday, or just growing together year after year, I want to be with you through it all, telling your family's unique story! Let's do just that <3

During the session, she made us feel very comfortable in her in-home studio and explained her process along the way. Amanda was very gentle with our little one and she captured some amazing pictures. We would definitely recommend Amanda and would use her again in the future!"
