Hello, I am Amanda Maria.

As a kid I remember combing through old photo albums with my grandmother when she said, "Amanda, some days photos are all you have."

Now that I am older and have kids of my own and realize how much weight those words carry.

Photography freezes moments in time. Moments that might easily pass by. Details that can quickly be forgotten. During all of my sessions these are the moments I'm waiting to capture. As you comb through your own photo albums I want every detail to take you right back to the moments we all live for.

""A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.""
