Let’s tell your story.
Films + Photos that capture the real moments in your life.
…and I help families document life’s biggest milestones through the power of visual storytelling.
Whether you’re expecting a baby, celebrating your child’s first birthday, or you want to be able to hit pause on a day in your life to record your family’s memories and be able to replay them whenever you like, I’m here to help. Let’s ditch the “Everyone smile and say cheese” JC Penny Portrait experience and create soulful images full of emotion, love, and authentic moments that are timeless and classic.
My studio is located in Akron, Ohio but I also serve most of Northeast Ohio including: Canton, Hudson, Stow, Fairlawn, Bath, Cleveland and Wadsworth.
Are you newly pregnant?
I make expecting mothers feel beautiful and empowered throughout their entire experience with me. Being in front of the camera during a time when your body is going through so many changes, can be very intimidating, but I believe that my methods of artistic poses and collection of gorgeous gowns available for your use will make you look and feel your very best!
If you value the special memories that accompany motherhood, I want to work with you!
My ideal clients…are probably drinking an iced vanilla latte right now.
They’re also unsure of how a session with me works, but they believe in the power of photos to tell a story. They want everything spelled out for them including suggestions on what to wear and locations and poses. They love binge watching Netflix documentaries and home improvement shows (Hellllo Joanna Gaines!!). They love neutrals and texture with a little bit of rustic charm! They’re busy moms that need to document this time in their lives but have no idea where to start. They’re struggling to find the right fit for their family that’s not boring, inauthentic, or cheesy. They love podcasts and yoga pants and pretty florals. They need someone to create beautiful images for them without feeling pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They love the idea of preserving memories that can be passed down to their children and their children’s children.
What people are saying about me:
“I couldn’t say enough nice things about Amanda. I am always hesitant meeting new people. I was worried how my maternity session would turn out but it was everything I could ever want and more. Being almost 9 months I wasn’t feeling all that beautiful but she made me feel absolutely gorgeous. Her work is beyond stunning and she works so hard to perfect that picture for you. Not only did she do that but all along the way she was constantly telling me how great I looked and it was so encouraging. I definitely hope to work with her in the future.” – Abigail Laughery
“Amanda is a very talented photographer. She really takes the time to get to know what you like, what you don’t like and what you want from the session. She did an amazing job with our maternity photos and an even better job with our newborn shoot. Her studio was warm, calm and inviting. She provided all of the fabrics and props, while allowing us to bring in a few things of our own. She was really good at handling our little one when she was fussy. Amanda is patient, kind and easy to work with. I look forward to working with her as our little Claire grows! We love all of the photos and videos Amanda created.” – Natasha Krys
“I do not think I could say enough wonderful things about Amanda. From the moment we walked into her studio I felt completely at ease. She was so warm and comforting and made you feel right at home. The way she handled Brinley was amazing. She was so cool calm and collected throughout the entire shoot. Not only is she incredible at what she does but from the time I spent there I could tell she is an absolutely amazing person. Everything she does is with such ease.” – Taran DePaul
