Thank you so much for your interest in choosing me to capture this season in your life!

my approach:  I believe in capturing authentic images that showcase your families true personalities!   

I provide a laid back and relaxed experience for my clients -- from upfront planning, to chaos coordinator at your session, through delivery of your images -- I'm here for you!  Photos are never easy - let me help with the heavy lifting! 

Non-compliant toddlers and grumpy teens (and/or dads!) are my specialty.  Don't wait another year for the "right time" for family photos -- trust me, every stage has its challenges, and I can handle them all.  

Relaxed Family Portraits  

They grow up so fast. We hear that so much it’s become cliche. But it’s so. dang. true. As a mom of three crazy kids — Max, Ryan and Baer — I have walked in your shoes. We walk around capturing everything on our phones — but those photos often stay right there on the screen. Never printed or hung on the wall and likely not taken to be passed down to our kids one day. And we are the memory keepers (add that to your long list of responsibilities that come with being a mom). 

I provide a fun, laid back and easy photography experience for your family. I love to hang out with the crazy kids who have way too much energy (i’ll try to tire them out for you too!). The ones that laugh at my bad jokes (or stare blankly at me, that’s fun too). The shy kids, the loud kids, the funny kids, the bossy kids, the sweet and kind kids — I love them all. I love to capture their personalities and share those preserved moments with you to cherish forever. To print and pass down. To update those photos on the wall. To share with friends and family.  


Hey there,

I'm Amanda

I’m a laid back mom, rarely the “better half” to my husband, and a beach loving photographer. I grew up in North Jersey and moved to Connecticut for college where I studied psychology. Unrelated to my major, I worked for 10+ years in the finance industry and after 15 years of living and loving Fairfield County — decided to pack up our 3 kids, dog and 2 cats, sell our Southport home, and head down the shore! We now spend our days on the Barnegat Bay enjoying the simple pleasures that most people only get to enjoy for a week or two while on vacation.
