Hey Friend! I'm Amanda.

See this girl ?.that’s me. I am a Palmdale California family photographer. I am a free spirit,  I have an old soul and I wear my heart on my tattooed sleeve.

Some other things you should know about me:::

-I tell a lot of corny jokes and can pretty much turn anything into a "that's what she said" statement.

-cannoli's should be included with all meals but my waistline is super glad it’s not.

- I collect coffee mugs which my husband is not super thrilled with.

-We have 2 boys and a boy dog so it’s safe to say that testosterone fills the house, but lucky for me, I am what others would call a 5'0 fireball of sass.

-I hate the word moist. A lot.

-I am an extroverted introvert, meaning I can be adventurous and outgoing in social settings but I also really enjoy quiet time and being alone. I need both, but typically only when I want them.

Newly located in Palmdale, California I have been a full time photographer for 10 years. I started photographing just about everything but over the last couple of years, I have focused on families and take a few select weddings. I feel this is me and what I truly love photographing and I have never been happier. I believe your happiness and pride shows most in doing the things you’re most passionate about. This is it for me.

Photography is more than snapping a photo you and your kids standing and smiling at the camera. It means so much more to me! It’s about finding the right light to show you and your beautiful family off in. It’s about focusing on the true connection and unconditional love between you and your spouse. It’s about showing the sillyness, the messyness (cause that is part of life, too) and joy that having kids (human or fur-baby) has brought to your life. When your family and friends see these images, I want them to immediately nod and say “that is 100% you.” Being a photographer isn’t about just looking through the camera….it’s about seeing you and your life and freezing those moments in time. It sounds cheesy perhaps, but you only get one chance at life so why wouldn’t you want it captured authentically? 

Let’s grab a drink and talk! 



“Amanda is simply the best! She is fantastic with children and definitely captured my kids' personalities perfectly! Turn around time on photos is super quick too”
