my story

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 sweet and wild boys, wife to a vegetable farmer, a homeschooling mom, and a portrait 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.
