I was honored that these beautiful women allowed me to capture their generations in a mini session at my home studio. There's no mistaking these beauties belong to one another.
Family photos with lil Audrey 6 months old. We ventured to Ronald Reagan Sports Park for a beautiful golden hour photo session with the whole family this time. Audrey was so cute in her little 1/2 years old shirt & accessories. She's all girl with her pink & fun bows momma puts on her.
Grandma joined in too for some sweet moments.
I adore this beautiful family!!! Being 8 months pregnant & not wanting to venture far from home, we decided to try out my home studio for their family photos this year. On the day we planned there happen to be a flash flood, so the clouds had rolled in & it was too dark inside. Problem solved...we headed right outside my front door & a short walk around the corner to capture these beautiful images for them to share & cherish.
7 months is such a fun age! Wyatt you were such a good boy for your photo session. You will soon be crawling all over the place to keep up with your Big Sister. She was such a great little helper for your photo session. She made you smile, held you, laid down next to you for a couple photos & even held my reflector. Thanks for being my little photographer side kick Shellby! We couldn't have gotten all the great photos without you.
I had the opportunity to go over to Little Leland's home & capture some great moments of him at 5 months along with his 2 older siblings who are ages 2 & 4 years. Their mommy is an amazing decorator. She always has herself & home looking amazing!
Oh these two! How I love them so. They are my amazing grandparents. Their influence in my life has been irreplaceable. Capturing their love for each other was one of the best experiences. I believe they had a great time too! Climbing up a lifeguard tower, dancing on the rocks & taking in the sunset. Love was in the air.
Deciding what to have the whole gang wear in Family Pictures can be a daunting task. What colors to wear? How can we coordinate, but not be matchy-matchy?
I have our family photos taken at least once a year usually in time for our holiday cards. Some years I find myself running all over town looking for the perfect items to wear, but often times I try to use what we have at home for a casual look that really reflects who we are in that moment in time. My husband always likes it when I choose from our current wardrobe, because that equals comfort & saves on the pocketbook. However, I do have a weakness for getting something new from the current trending fashion. To keep it simple & inexpensive, I try to focus on just a couple new tops & accessories that make it feel new & exciting for all, without breaking the bank.
This was our 2012 Holiday card.

These three beauties are a delight to be around, photograph & look at. I love each of their personalities & enjoy watching them interact with each other. It reminds me of my relationship with my two sisters.
Love this Family! Yes, he did chop all that wood! They have a beautiful home & he prepares for the winters by growing his beard out & grabbing his ax. His hard work made for an awesome backdrop for their Christmas photos.
Amazingly beautiful family inside & out. Funny how we met. We were all at the same Birthing Class & recognized each other from church. We ended up switching due dates & both gave our little girls the same middle name without even knowing. The girls are now best friends & well, so are the mommies:)
Welcome! Thanks for reading...My name is Amanda, my inspiration for photography stems from the desire to capture my daughter and her friend Ellia, the "Two Roses". They have their own language, watching the moments they share created this yearning to preserve these raw times in their lives.
