My name is Amanda Miles, but some people call me Mandy. I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. I am an easy going mother of three wild boys, wife to a vegetable farmer, a homeschooling mom, and a photographer. I'm always exploring new interests like taking classes on-line, doing a 30 day yoga challenge, trying recipes from the Great British Baking Show, mountain biking very slowly, reading adventure books with my kids, creating watercolor cards, sipping sugary coffee, and listening to This American Life.
Common feedback that I get immediately after sessions is, "That was so easy!" and I am thrilled when I hear that. I want to be able to document your story through my eyes, your story of love and connection, chaos and laughter...all of it... in a way that feels comfortable for you.
what people are saying
“Amanda is a very creative and skilled photographer. We had such a good time during our family photo shoot and the pics turned out beautiful! Highly recommended!”
what amanda has been writing about
More than ever before, these stressful and uncertain times remind me how grateful I am for family and the friendships that make life so colorful. I am so excited to again start offering outdoor sessions, so that we can create meaningful images in a safe and responsible way. Here are a few guidelines for our upcoming session:
Social Distance: During your session we will maintain a minimum of 6 feet distance at all times. Deposits and final payments can be made electronically.
Location: Outdoor sessions in rural areas are ideal. If you would like location suggestions, I can help.
Face Mask: Upon request, your photographer will wear a cloth face mask.
Cancellation Policy: If you or any member of your family feel ill before your session, please stay home. We can reschedule or refund your deposit (whichever you prefer). Because the state guidelines for businesses are continually adjusting, changes may need to be made for future bookings. I will communicate directly with you if changes need to be made.
