Hey There! I'm Amanda

You could say that I am the ultimate baby whisperer! From a very young age, there are two things that I have always loved, taking care of babies and taking pictures! Kids and babies just gravitate to me naturally, so it's no wonder that I find myself here owning a business doing that exact thing I love and chasing a passion of mine that started so many years ago!

Fun fact time... I earned my Bachelors of Nursing degree at the University of Michigan! I am also a pediatric RN and worked at U of M’s Pediatric Cardiothoracic ICU for over 3 years with a ton of very ill newborns! I then practiced in pediatric and family medicine for a year after leaving the hospital!  After having my first baby, I decided nursing could wait, so we sold our house and made the big move to the Lansing area to be closer to my husband's work!
 
We are a household of all ladies + 1 dad lol! We have Zoey the labradoodle, and 5 chickens! We have a love for camping and just spending time as a family! O... and we all share an absolute love for  ice cream!

When I am not behind the lens, you can find me hanging out with the family all cozy on the couch watching the latest movie or running outside on a nice sunny day with my crazy kiddos! 

Call me crazy, but I have expensive taste as my husband likes to say haha! Filet mignon is one of my favorite meals ( I mean, what's wrong with that??)! A warm chocolate chip cookie is my kryptonite and I literally have no self control when it comes to them or any other sweets!

"We had a wonderful experience with Amanda for our newborn session! From the start of the process; she was quick to respond, friendly and professional. 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!"
