MY WORK & STYLE
I'm a Canon girl. I shoot on Canon bodies with a mixture of Canon and Sigma Art Lenses. I shoot with mostly prime lenses, which means I zoom with my body, not my camera to create a beautiful separation between my clients and the background to create a desired blur . Hello cardio!
LIFESTYLE + AUTHENTIC
I won't leave you out to dry during your session. If you NEED posing, I will make it happen. However, it's often the in-between moments that I'm capturing that we fall in love with.
CLIENTS AND FRIENDSHIPS
You matter to me. We don't have to be besties, but I take my client relationships personal. I spend time documenting you and your family so I hope you don't become a stranger when the experience is over.
MORE ABOUT ME- AMANDA
Being a mom is my favorite. I have 3 incredible kids and a rockstar husband who keeps everyone alive while I'm off photographing the world, and who keeps me grounded when I'm home.
GIVE ME ALL OF THE DOGS - OR JUST LET ME PET THEM. WE ALREADY HAVE THREE.
I'm always going, going, going. Caffeine is probably my favorite food group, follow by sushi and pizza. I'm not very picky at all, I love food.
YOU'LL FIND ME IN THE GYM. FITNESS IS MY HAPPY PLACE WHEN I NEED ME TIME.
Autism awareness and advocacy are very important to me. Our youngest was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum and when I'm not photographing amazing clients, or editing, I'm probably at one of his therapies making sure he's getting the best life.
Houston / Galveston Area + Central California + Destination
I'm sure "Houston and Central California" sounds a little odd to most, but if you know my background, then you know that I spent the last 3 years meeting some incredible clients and people in California before moving back to Texas. I travel back to California often for sessions. I'm currently based out of Texas City, Texas with the ability to travel anywhere a plane will fly me.
For newborn sessions, I offer an in-home lifestyle sessions, which means I will come to your home and document your family in your element. After years of photographing babies in-studio and in-home, I can confidently say that, without a doubt, I love in-home sessions and have found my style within that atmosphere.
MEMORIAL PARK - STUDIO
For certain session types, I do offer sessions in an indoor lifestyle studio.
While still utilizing natural light, this all white studio with large windows gives a very light and airy feel without environmental complications.
maternity + lifestyle newborn + minis + milk bath + cake smash + boudoir + holiday
Mention during inquiry if you'd like to talk about a studio session.
An important topic to note.
Diversity, Equality and Inclusion are very important to me.
I do not discriminate, period.
Your race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status,
sexual orientation, or military status will not alter the services you get from me.
If you or someone that I will be photographing has a disability, hidden or not, I will do anything
I am able to do so that accommodations are made to make the session successful,
safe and a good experience. Please know that I am a small business so I am limited to my own abilities.
As a mom of 3 children, with the youngest being on the Autism spectrum, reading kids to make sure they feel comfortable is a big deal to me. My goal is not to push your child into a situation where they don't enjoy the experience and are no longer showcasing their personality. Typically this is achieved by stepping back and giving space when needed, redirection, engaging in topics that the child prefers, playing a game, listening to silly music or allowing the parents to soothe the child to showcase that they are in a safe space.
I started to learn sign language a few years ago and can communicate if you, a family member or child are hard of hearing or deaf and use this as your method of communication. Please know that I am always learning and practicing my skills. I'm just self taught and slowww so bare with me.😅
