the stuff that makes my heart sing...

“We love working with Amanda.  She always puts everyone at ease and manages to get great shots of four people- even with two wiggle worms.  The only difficult part is there are too many great photos to choose from!” –Alex


“Gosh, Amanda I can’t even begin to THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! These are just the most beautiful photos of my family ever, ever ever. And how did you manage to make it look like our house is calm and serene?! Ha, if only people knew. My heart could just explode.”  -Tracy


“Amanda is an incredibly talented photographer.  She is a master of light, angles, and making you look your best.  Most standout, however, is her unique ability to connect with kids and bring out the family’s best so that our photos aren’t only picture perfect, they truly depict the love and warmth between us.  Each time Amanda sends back photos from one of our sessions, I am brought to tears.  I feel that same way when I pass these special images, now on display throughout our home.   Amanda is kind, easy going and oh so gifted.  We feel lucky to have had her chronicle our family over the years and look forward to many more sessions together.” -Jenn


"I am so thankful that someone recommended Amanda Anderson Photography to me after the birth of my daughter. Amanda's presence at my house was calming and put my self-conscious nerves at ease. Her expertise regarding texture, lighting and position made for absolutely stunning photos that not only capture my child but also our home environment and family personality. I will absolutely ask Amanda to photograph any future children I have as well as any special life events I hope to remember." -Rebecca


"Amanda did an amazing job of capturing our boys individual personalities!  As a mom herself, Amanda knows what it takes to get the "perfect shots" that can often times be hard to get when working with young children." -Michelle


"I can't say enough about our experience working with Amanda. We have used her for newborn and family photos and have always been blown away by the shots she captures. I really like our photos to reflect who we are as a family; our true, crazy, reality, and Amanda nails it every time. She is the ultimate professional, patient and so sweet and loving with oftentimes less-than cooperative little ones. It is obvious Amanda loves what she does and it absolutely comes through in her photos. She is a truly gifted photographer and a wonderful person overall." -Tory


"I have worked with Amanda on everything from newborn photos, to animal portraits and photos for promotion.  She is amazing to work with and captures the best shots. The newborn photos she took for us are our favorite pictures we have to date! Her candid style and easygoing nature make any photo session fun and deliver unbelievable results." -Brit


"We loved having Amanda take our family photos after my son was born. She brought such a calming and fun presence to the shoot and our home. She also gave us some great suggestions for locations/backgrounds and activities to do during our shoot, (namely a walk and scoot around our local streets), which resulted in photos that I absolutely love and that really capture our family and kids personalities, as well as our neighborhood and daily life in such a beautiful and fun way. They are definitely photos that I will always display and treasure." -Becky
