I would be honored to tell your story.

Hi there! I'm Amanda and I am based in Youngstown, Ohio. My style is inspired by film photography, poetry and human connection. I aim to capture emotion and the atmosphere that surrounds you. I bring out the depth and mood of my images in post production while keeping colors soft and true to life with a hint of nostalgia. I also can offer on location, in home and studio session,

I love creating experiences with my clients. I want to get to know you and your loved ones and capture your lives in the most honest way. Our legacies live within photographs and I want to make sure your story is told for many lifetimes to come.

Some fun facts about me: I am a mother first and foremost. My beautiful daughter is named Margot Louise. I also have three cats, a dog, a few chickens and my house is full of plants. When I’m not taking pictures you can find me making herbal wellness products, buried deep in the pages of a novel or running around in the woods. Early Summer and Autumn are my favorite seasons and more often than not you'll find me barefooted and covered in dirt from the garden. I graduated from Kent State University with a degree in photography and graphic design and have been capturing beautiful stories for 12 years. My dream is to finish restoring my old century farmhouse with my better half and to have a few more barefooted babies running around the yard.
