I truly cannot wait to become your lifelong family photographer!

I feel that quality should be equally as paramount as the experience when working together! I know that being in front of the camera can be scary and you may think that you will feel uncomfortable. I want to assure you that I will be directing you every step of the way! I promise you'll never have a moment to feel awkward because I will be constantly guiding you and showing you exactly what to do. I want you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process.

You will have beautiful images to hang on your new gallery wall we design together or a breathtaking album to place on your end table! You will have high quality, tangible items, to see and feel every day in your home. I hope to follow your family's story throughout the years, beginning with your journey through motherhood, to watching your children and family grow year after year!

"We had an incredible experience working with Amanda! She made it fun for our large crew and captured some great moments. She worked quickly, which is absolutely necessary when dealing with a lot of kids and our pictures are gorgeous. We will definitely be contacting Amanda again!"

"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!"

"For the Love of Photography is is exceptional! Amanda takes her time with your child/family, she works hard to deliver quality photos. She is incredibly kind and patient. She also takes all proper COVID precautions and keeps your baby very comfortable during the entire process. I highly recommend using her as a way to create keepsake memories for you and your family."

"Amanda was wonderful to work with. Amanda was super helpful and responsive. I am clueless when it comes to coordinating outfits for pictures. Amanda helped me coordinate outfits for my three girls and husband. Everyone looked fabulous. She was great working with children. She captured some beautiful pictures of our entire family and me for my maternity session."

"Our family was so impressed with our For the Love of Photography newborn session. We felt comfortable that all precautions were in place to keep all of us safe and healthy during COVID. Amanda was extremely professional and so patient with our newborn daughter. And when our toddler son was a bit difficult for photos she welcomed us back to her studio on a different day and worked with us to get the best photos of our little family.  We are so impressed with what we have seen of the session so far and can’t wait for the final photos! Highly recommend working with FtLoP!"

"We had such a great time with Amanda! She was very professional and captured AMAZING pictures of our newborn. We felt more than comfortable and safe in her in-home studio especially during this crazy time. Thank you Amanda!"

"Amanda was so kind and easy to work with! We absolutely fell in love with the vision she had in mind for our maternity session. My husband and I both felt comfortable and directed for the entire shoot. For the Love of Photography made booking very easy. Amanda promptly answered any questions that came to mind and had great suggestions. Thank you, For the Love of Photography for making me feel so beautiful and capturing a moment in time that my husband and I will cherish forever!"
