choose your adventure:
Families are welcomed into our spacious, 1600sqft open-concept portrait studio nestled on the heart of our family's farm. A place I specifically designed and built for families just like you to come relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy capturing your little one's first year. It is the perfect time to spend together as a family away from the hustle of the city all while timeless heirloom portraits are being created and preserved for you and generations to come.
From those first few days welcoming that sweet babe home all the way through their first birthday portraits, I am honored and truly excited to be a part of capturing so many beautiful family stories.
Through sleepless nights, so many firsts, lots of laughter, and many happy tears, this first year is the most remarkable and fun to capture! Our most popular sessions, sitter and first birthday, are designed to capture all the little details of these milestones in your baby's first year.
This once in a lifetime moment is one of our favorites to capture. The newborn session experience here was created to capture all your little ones newness and tiny details while you can sit back, relax, and take a moment to soak it all in. It's a "home away from home" experience.

"Her COVID practices and cleaning procedures made us feel safe in taking our newborn in for photos.
She was quick to respond and her communication was clear and thorough. We got the photos back more quickly than anticipated and they turned out better than we could have ever asked for! We would definitely recommend Amanda for newborn photos!
"Amanda was an absolute pro and was amazing with our sweet baby girl.
- Lindy & Mike
Her studio is as warm and welcoming as she is, and we immediately felt right at home. We also loved the time and thought Amanda put in to each pose and outfit. She has truly has a gift, and we were completely floored at how amazing the sneak peek pictures turned out. We would recommend her over and over again."
"She will be our daughters photographer for a long time.
Her lighting is creative and her outfits are adorable. She is very professional and has a great artistic skill. We love ALL the pictures Amanda has taken for us. She is also a very sweet person and we LOVE to work with her. 120% recommended!!
"I’m not even sure how to put into words how awesome Amanda is!
She has exceeded our expectations every single session. She is so patient with us and our son and always captures some of the best moments and memories. I can’t wait to have full albums of her pictures all of our little one(s) growing up!
Somehow this first year is flying by and you have likely already begun to think about celebrating your baby’s first birthday. A cake smash session is a super cute, fun way to let your little one’s personality shine and celebrate just how much they’ve grown in one year!
It was fantastic to see this family again and catch up on how they've been. I've know them for quite a while as I photographed her parents' engagement session and wedding several years ago when I was a wedding photographer. Mom and Dad didn't want the traditional pink and white color scheme for this baby girl newborn photography session. Instead, they chose some beautiful, rich, non-traditional colors which I absolutely loved!
COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed our way of life and caused us all to reflect on what “normal” looks. My top priority has been and will continue to be the health and safety of families who come here. This article lays out the extra measures our studio will take to ensure that we all are staying as healthy and safe as possible.
