Hi, I'm Amanda.
I'm a Wisconsinite at heart, but have been on the move for quite some time. After spending two years in DC, I found myself longing for a change of scenery, so I did what all Midwesterners dream of: I headed West! After living in Seattle for six years, my husband and I now call the Bay Area home.
My love for photography blossomed in high school; it was there that I discovered how powerful art can be. I was quiet, listened to a lot of Bright Eyes, and found solace in creating images using only my imagination and a camera.
Nearly 15 years later, not much has changed (except my playlist, I suppose!). It’s rare you’ll find me without a camera in hand. There’s nothing I love more than capturing special moments you can cherish forever.
In my free time, I enjoy barre, baking, exploring the world with my husband, and updating my travel and lifestyle blog, Little Tranquility.

Dream Dinner Date?
Coffee or Tea?
Antarctica. I really hope to visit someday! I would love to photograph the penguins, whales, icebergs, and seals! It's so remote and beautiful. I have a wild fascination for unique islands and far away destinations.
“I'm super awkward in front of a camera but working with Amanda was awesome. It felt like just hanging out and walking around - the resulting photos were totally natural and candid shots that glowed with natural light. I highly recommend Shutter Pine!”
