Hi, I'm Amanda!

I've spent the last four years in Santa Cruz, California (which is why you'll see lots of California scenery in my portfolio!), but now I'm back home in Washington state and currently reside on Bainbridge Island. It feels good to be back in the PNW!

I dig moody vibes, organic pops of color, and using nature as my backdrop. Shooting outdoors is where my true passion lies, and my #1 goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I hope you walk away from our session feeling like you just made a new friend. 😊

I believe that love is love, black lives matter, and everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect.

In my free time, I enjoy running, baking, brushing up on my Mandarin, and exploring the world with my husband and our daughter, Lily.
