I’m Amanda, blessed with a big personality + express my love through sarcasm. I spend most of my days creating, overdosing on caffeine, flexing my home improvement skills, editing, and managing the life bits that fall between. With my husband, Mark, and our three cats, we live a cozy life on the lake and if we’re not traveling to a shoot or venturing around Michigan you can find us on the pontoon with a vodka tonic in hand.

I can’t wait to hear more about you and talk about how we can collaborate to make your vision come to life! Maybe you’re trying to boost that amazing business you just started, or need an MVP at your wedding, or maybe you just need help getting one step closer to hanging that -long overdue- family portrait on your wall, any way you shake it, count me in.

In my opinion, there is only one way to start a great conversation… over a splendid beverage. If you agree, pick your poison, and lets get started!

Kind words

Amanda is wildly talented and incredibly hilarious.
She captured my personality perfectly and we had a lot of fun in the process.

I would highly recommend working with Amanda. She was creative, efficient yet thorough and a pleasure to be around. She made the whole family so at ease and the pictures reflect that. I will definitely be booking her for our next family session!

THANK YOU!!!!! These are all so so GORGEOUS, seriously I (I guess I should say we...) am in love with the whole album and Gregg is too! Thank you so so much for being such a perfect part of our day, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be part of the whole day!
