Photography has always been a passion, but before I knew it could become a career I went to college to be counselor to young women, & marriages. Listening and executing a plan is something I love, and I would love to mentor you in this crazy industry that can sometimes seem overwhelming.

In my two years of mentoring other photographers I have learned so much myself. Yes, while teaching others I learned as well! I learned to be selfless. That it is never about getting the shot for your own sake, but that others may learn how to get the shot from you. I am so excited to bring to life my revised mentorship. An in depth teaching from class time in a quiet quaint area to going out on location to capture a gorgeous editorial to enhance your portfolio to reach your dream client. You will not be alone in this experience, come with pages of questions, a creative mindset and together we will create the portfolio of your dreams!

I am a firm believer in community over competition, along with teaching! When I was first starting out I wish I would have had someone be there to show me right and wrong - to guide my in this huge and overwhelming industry. That is what makes me so passionate about teaching other photographers! We never ever stop learning, I am still learning to this day too! In saying this, I one hundred percent believe education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving the community better than where we left it. If you are interested in learning more about photography, or even film photography I would absolutely love to meet with you!

I have felt so blessed to have the opportunity to second shoot with Amanda and to be mentored by her as well. She has given me the best gift as I have started my own photography business through her kindness and willingness to let me pose clients and try out new creative ideas. Working together and sharing ideas has grown my creativity and we’ve become friends too! It’s so fun to see how a passion can bring people together! I have greatly appreciated her advice and guidance.

I have learned so much more than I could have imagined. What I really appreciate about working with Amanda is her ability to teach me something new every time. She is so positive & encouraging while still being able to be constructive and provide helpful tips to improve upon my skills. One example, in particular, is when we did our editing mentor session to show me a glimpse into what happens during the editing process. She showed how best to enhance my editing skills & how to take pictures in such a way that it even cuts down my editing time. For someone who's still learning, building my portfolio & taking on my own business venture it was extremely helpful to see how to run a photography business & all that goes into it from behind the scenes. I can't recommend her enough, she has really been a huge help in so many different ways to me & she will be for you too!
