My first love is photographing sports, and as a mom myself, know how important photos of our kids are. They help us watch them grow, preserve "that age" forever, and remind us how much we love our kids.
I grew up in central Pennsylvania during the 80s and 90s as the youngest of four kids. We played outdoors, had to be home "by dark," rode our bikes all over town and loved snow days! As an adult living in Northern Virginia, most of that's the same! I have a wonderful husband, a teenage son and a very fluffy cat named Lexi who has no time for nonsense.
I am based in Ashburn, Virginia, but can travel outside this area, depending on the distance. For the highest quality photos, I recommend photographing newborns mid-morning (around 10:00 am), toddlers after a nap (either mid-morning or mid-late afternoon), and families about two hours before sunset. I am also fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, but more than happy to wear a mask at your session so you and your family feel safe.

"Mandy was the absolute best. I wanted to get a series of professional head shots taken but I absolutely hate having my photo taken. Mandy made the whole experience fun and I'm honestly looking forward to the next excuse I might have to use her services! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"Amanda was the most wonderful photographer for our son's one year old photoshoot! She was great with our son, captured the most beautiful images and was open to all our outfit/backdrop/prop ideas. I was blown away with how quickly I was able to get the photos back and they are just SO beautiful. We will treasure these photos forever. Thank you Amanda!"
