Your life is worth documenting. This is your legacy. We turn your family into art. Display it proudly. We believe in dramatic black and white imagery. That one magnificent image is worth more than 100 mediocre ones. That simple and timeless is always best.

Welcome.

You want bespoke, creative images that speak to a classic and timeless style, and one-of-a-kind printed art you can display in your home and pass down to your children in an heirloom form.

But you're over the whole DIY route, you have zero time for planning and researching products, and you just want someone to hold your hand and guide you step by step to amazing portraits of your family.

That's where I come in, sweet friend.

Fine art Maternity, Newborn, Child & Family Portraits in Northeast Ohio

You're ready for a luxurious experience that takes the guesswork out of having Portraits taken

I help busy moms document their legacy and turn their family into works of art to display proudly...and I make you look damn good in the process

At Amanda Ellis Photography, we start with the end in mind and what the end result will be, first. Where do you plan to display your portraits? What does your home design look like? What colors are you drawn to? How do you want to see these priceless images 5, 10, 20 years from now? Asking these questions at the beginning always results in an incredible session that gives you exactly what you dreamed of - a printed treasure you can hold in your hands or pass by on your wall.

As your fine art photographer, I work alongside you to create a custom portrait experience. From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, I answer ALL your questions. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be. Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed.

a step by step look

01. THE PRE-CONSULTATION

First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be. Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.

02. THE SHOOT

Some people feel a lot of anxiety about this part. We know you’ve put in a lot of effort to make this happen. Gathering clothing, wrangling all of the people, delivering the baby. We applaud and appreciate you. And now you can relax. Now is when you sit back and revel in your family and what you’ve created. Now is when you enjoy this process. Take some deep breaths and feel all of the love that went into the making of this one unique family of yours. We’ve got this; we’ve got you.

03. THE ORDER APPOINTMENT

We’re going to show you your images and sometimes people cry. We like that part. We’ll have snacks and drinks and you can relax. We’re going to help you sort through all of the images that you’re going to want to keep. It’s going to seem impossible choose, but we know you can do it with our help. Together, we’ll curate a beautiful collection of images that tell the story of this particular time in your life. We’ll help you decide where that story is going to go and how it’s going to be displayed for you to remember as you move on to your next chapter.

We’ve partnered with the best professional printers, craftsmen and artists to create exceptional works of art for your home. From giclee to traditional silver halide photographic prints and hand-bound albums, your images are printed in a technique rated to last for generations.

04. DELIVERY & PLANNING

And my images are fabulous!!!

Artful nude Maternity Session

Amanda is positively phenominal! I was very on the fence about making an investment on newborn photos. Amanda provided me with plenty of information to help me make an educated decision. She offered options and was incredibly responsive. Amanda made us feel at ease and was so gentle and loving with our little one. She was positive, fun and sweet throughout the entire session. Her disposition makes it easy to talk to her and I find her to be an amazing human being. I left the session feeling like I made a best friend. I am so glad we chose Amanda and to make the investment. The photos she captured are remarkable of a very special moment in time capturing some of the most amazing memories my life has to offer. Amanda and the service she offers is unparalleled in my opinion and worth every single penny. She has found a life long customer and referral in our family. Thank you, Amanda!

Amanda is so talented, professional, and warm. We used her for maternity and an in home lifestyle newborn shoot, both sessions were great. She makes you feel so comfortable and at ease in front of her lens. The first time meeting Amanda, it felt like we had known each other for a long time....she is so kind. Definitely book a session with Amanda!

Maternity & Lifestyle Newborn

Not only is Amanda extremely talented, but she is also so unbelievably patient and kind. I have a 4 year old and she didn't seem bothered by him and his million questions in the least bit. She photographed my maternity and newborn sessions and did phenomenal. People who saw my maternity pictures commented that it looked like the cover of a magazine. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. If I could give 10 stars, I would!

Awards/Features/Accolades

I'm a wife, mother, fur mom and artist. My favorite place to be is on our couch with all my loves, sipping coffee and watching movies. That is my happy place.

As a new mom myself, I realize now more than ever just how important photos of my family are. I look back at the images of my daughter when she was just new, and tiny and it takes me back to those early days of being completely smitten with every single detail of her. I remember my heart bursting with love for my husband who saw us through 25 hours of unmedicated labor and welcomed our daughter into the world right along side me. 

Photos are the one thing you can spend money on that becomes more valuable as time passes. Invest. If not for yourself, for your child, and your child's child. Those images will be passed down for generations to come and become priceless works of art.
