More about Amanda D....

What do you love about your job?

I love how photography allows us to freeze a moment in time to be cherished forever. I love being a vessel to show people their true beauty, as seen from a perspective outside their own. Authenticity is my middle name--I love to capture real moments shared between people who love each other. I strive to encapsulate the real feeling, emotion and personality of every person who stands before my lens. I work to tell a story with my images, to earnestly know the people I am photographing, and to create images that reflect who they are.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I enjoy capturing couples the most, because their excitement and joy is infectious and makes my job easy. There is nothing to fake on a wedding day; everything is so genuine. After couples, my next favorite thing to shoot would be maternity shoots for a couple's first born, because again the anticipation and excitement is so transparent. I also enjoy newborn photoshoots, because that is truly a most precious period in time that flies by; if you blink you might otherwise miss it.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I have been featured by several blogs and social media accounts and recently interviewed and featured in Voyage LA Magazine. I am a proud member of the Long Beach chapter of the Rising Tide Society.

A fun fact about this photographer

In high school I was the school's mascot--Wilma the Wolverine! I'm a former barista and every morning I'm honing my latte art. I love the clean smell of bleach and would have it as an air freshener in my home if my husband would allow it. I'm a modern day cat lady with 2 little fur babies. I enjoy classic rock, Bikram yoga, and cooking dinners from old family recipes.
