My name is Amanda and I am a natural light photographer based out of San Diego, CA. I found my love of photography in high school and I really haven’t even considered anything else since. Over 20 years of photography experience and schooling will ensure that you get the most amazing shots from your photo session. From developing my own digital editing style, macros and scripts, technical skills, to artistic expression, my knowledge encompasses every aspect of photography.


To tell the story of a thousand other moments, a thousand other words, I begin my tale by documenting your family as you grow.  There is just something about capturing that perfect moment in time...such as your baby’s smile the first time they step their feet in sand, or smash that cake when they turn a year old, or capturing the beautiful smile of your child when they look up and see your face. I might get you sandy, I might get you wet, but I am going to get you--because I get you!


I recently started a family of my own, and with the help of my loving model's (husband and daughter), I get to explore my passion of self portraits and documentation of my own family in my favorite place, Julian, CA; and that has further stoked my passion for capturing those special moments that happen when family gets together.
