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 three beautiful children, so I know first hand, how important it is to capture all of your special moments! Time is truly a thief! The long days turn into short years and seem to slip away all too fast! One minute you're soaking in all the baby snuggles and the next, you're waving goodbye to your kiddos on their way out the door to school! The only thing that can take me back to those days are the photographs I hold near and dear to my heart.

Those moments forever gone, but forever living on through captured moments in time. Let that soak in just a bit...

A daily reminder of the most precious things in your life is what I provide for each and every family that walks through my doors! My exclusive maternity wardrobe, handmade newborn props, and family style guides allow you to relax knowing I have everything covered! 

Now is the time to embrace every little flutter, snuggle, smile, and little giggle, while I create memorable images for you and your growing family! Come be in the moment with this one of a kind and unforgettable experience with your family. Enjoy a calm and relaxing newborn session, where I provide custom props and styling or, enjoy a fun and energetic family session where we get play outdoors and capture silly giggles and snuggles with your children.  This is the moment you, momma, have worked so hard to get to! Every milestone is worth documenting! 

Whether you're having an intimate gathering in my beautiful, private studio or out on nature's path with me,  I want you to look back at these memories we create together  as if they happened yesterday! Let's turn your family's story into beautiful, one of a kind, handcrafted art to pass down from generation to generation, together!

Surly, bringing a new baby into the world, celebrating your baby's first birthday, or just growing together year after year, can be an emotional journey! I want to be with you every step of the way, telling your family's unique and real story!

We would definitely recommend Amanda and would use her again in the future!"
