I am not going to lie, I was so nervous about getting maternity photos done. My body had changed so much in just a short amount of time and I was extremely self conscious, even though I was proud and excited for my baby at the same time. Every step of the way, Amanda made the process fun and empowering. I had a blast, and my confidence has been up so much since getting my photos. I feel like I should have never had those thoughts about my body with how beautifully Amanda captured it. If you are thinking about getting maternity photos, DO IT. And book them with Amanda. Period.
"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!"
"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.

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

"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!"
