meet amanda.

Hi!  I'm a Goochland and Richmond, Virginia based lifestyle photographer.   


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 sewing cloth masks, starting a 30 day yoga challange, mountain biking very slowly, reading classic books with my kids, creating watercolor gift tags, sipping sugary coffee, and listening to The Moth podcast.  


Common feedback that I get immediately after my sessions is "That was so easy!" and I am thrilled when I hear that because that's what it should be.  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 you feel comfortable.  

Let's take the images today that you will want for tomorrow!

COVID-19 Policy

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.
