Please meet an amazing mentee, Amanda.  She is my California girl!  We had a crazy weird time scheduling her session due to our time difference!  I love it!  Amanda and I met a couple of years ago as we took a landscape workshop with the amazing Kelsey out in Yosemite, CA.  We definitely hit it off with our love for dark chocolate, having a good time, laughing at ourselves, hiking, shooting God’s amazing creation and just enjoying life.  She and I kept in touch over the last few years and I’m so excited she is taking her business to a new level.  As she is striving to implement new pricing, refine or might I say tweak a few things, I’m ecstatic to see where this takes her. Now lets hear a little from her!

Hi! I’m Amanda…the crazy California girl! I am paralegal by day and a photographer by nights and weekends. I L.O.V.E. the mountains, especially when climbing and photographing them. Cold cereal happens to be my comfort food, along with dark chocolate which makes me sneeze. If you look at my Instagram feed you would find I’m addicted to vanilla lattes and taking pictures of my feet. I am astounded by God’s grace and love everyday.


I always remember having a camera…my first camera was film (yes…believe it) when I was about 10 years old….and I pretty much spent all my money on prints.  About 4 years ago I began to get seriously interested in digital photography and took some workshops which only fueled my love for the camera.  I started shooting families and helping out at weddings…and soon decided I should turn it into a business. I have always done photography as a side job/hobby…but the goal is to one day have a full time business at it.

I met Erin at a workshop a few years ago…and am so thrilled to be one of her mentees.  Erin is great at helping me keep the big picture in mind while fine tuning the details to make the picture complete. Every week I am challenged, encouraged and excited to implement new possibilities.
