Welcome to Amanda Mae Photography

The Chaco wearing photog boldly going... anywhere

My biggest priority of every session is to have fun. When you enjoy the process it is easy to be in love with your images (and who wants to hang images up on their walls from when they were miserable?!) My second goal is to help make you comfortable. Most people aren't comfortable in front of the camera and that is ok, we will get there! So, one must ask… How does one have fun and be comfortable during a photo session? It’s easy! First, I will help you find some great light, then I will pose you loosely and then we will have some fun! I will give you prompts to talk about and get some ‘naturally posed’ images,  as well ones where everyone is looking. 

After that we will play some games or read books or whatever it is that you do best. I always help to educate my clients on how sessions run so that I don’t throw you any curve balls; but because I have been doing this for awhile if anything unexpected pops up we will make it into an awesome opportunity!! (ask me about the sessions I’ve done in the rain, fog and other inclement weather sessions!) Being a photographer capturing snippets of people’s lives as a time capsule is a great privilege and one that I do not take lightly. I work diligently to provide the best and most quality images for my clients. 

Meet Amanda

Wife. Mom. Workout Enthusiast.  Good human.

Hi! I’m Amanda.  My family calls me Mandy, but when I started my business I felt like Amanda was more professional... after the last 10+ years I’m growing into it. I am passionate about a lot of things: the sun, social justice, Chaco sandals, national parks, great light, being active, emotion, relationships, vulnerability… above all that my husband and three kiddos. I’ve been in the photography industry since 2005 and feel so privileged to do what I do. I work hard to grow my craft and never be stagnant. I love what I do!!  Everything from working in challenging situations to catching up with repeat clients and their fabulous life!  Watching families grow is such an honor, one that I do not take for granted.  Photography has brought me to some pretty amazing places and given me the opportunity to meet stellar people.  The latest addition to my business of working with brands has allowed me to meet driven entrepreneurs and growing businesses!  I can’t wait to get to know you and hear what your photography needs are.

clients are saying...

Amanda is a true professional and a very talented photographer. She makes everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and was able to capture the essence of our family in each of the sessions we've done with her. Time moves so fast when kids are this little and she's managed to make it stand still mid-giggle--something we'll always treasure. I can't sing praises for her work high enough. I strongly recommend.
-Diana, Lifestyle client 2016, 2018

I love the photos you have captured of me through out the years. From senior portraits, engagement photos, and now wedding pictures, I have enjoyed the most having you through out my milestones. You have always made me feel comfortable and your work has always been amazing. I had SO many compliments on my engagement photos it was unreal! I loved using them for my scrapbook. Cannot wait for more milestone photography moments to come.
-Catherine, Bride 2018

My husband and I usually feel awkward being in the spotlight, but Amanda helped us feel at ease in front of the camera. The results were great, from posed family portraits to candid shots of intimate moments. The photographers were punctual and professional. We are very happy with our choice of Amanda Mae Photography for our wedding photographers.
