a new approach to family photography…

EMBRACING SINCERITY TO PRESERVE MOMENTS THAT MATTER BECAUSE THERE’S MAGIC IN THE ORDINARY

When you think of family photography, you probably imagine coercing everyone into their fanciest (and most uncomfortable) clothes and trekking to the local portrait studio for an hour of fake smiles. Well, crumple up that idea and toss it away! Because I want to introduce you to an uncomplicated, fun new approach to family photography. One that’s dynamic and delightful. One that documents your life as it really is. Maybe that means we’ll get a little bit muddy or navigate a tantrum here or there. But that’s alright! Because even though family life can be messy at times, that’s part of what makes it so beautiful. Together, let’s turn the mile-wide smiles, cosy cuddles, and even a bit of the chaos that decorates your days into art your family will cherish for generations.

The great thing about lifestyle sessions is that there’s not much you need to do to prepare. There’s no need to call in a cleaning crew or go shopping for new clothes. Instead, think of activities you’d like to do together as a family, like planting bulbs in the garden or playing around the house. Then, I’ll do the rest!

THE “TOOTHBRUSH SESSION” COLLECTION

lifestyle portraits

Imagine if the fly on your wall had a camera! The photos taken when you’re not staring into the lens or posing for the shot are lifestyle photos. They are meant to preserve the reality of a moment—from spontaneous laughter to even a little mess sometimes. They give you a window back into life as you lived it!

What is “documentary style” or “lifestyle” photography?

I love to give you a bit of everything! As I edit your gallery, some images will strike me as perfect for a dramatic black and white edit while others will look best in vibrant colour. So, look forward to finding a fun mix of the two throughout your final gallery!

What is “documentary style” or “lifestyle” photography?

No! And, in fact, please don’t! Remember, we are gathering to document your family and your life, not someone else’s. The best way to ensure a true-to-you gallery is to enter into your session ready for anything, game to embrace the spontaneity of a moment. Shot lists and expectations can hinder that approach, so let’s just let your session day and your family’s dynamic lead the way.

Absolutely! I offer both—along with design services—as optional add-ons to all of my collections. I love helping busy families by choosing the images, laying out the pages, and sending the albums off to be printed, so you don’t have to lift a finger. Just promise me you’ll pass them around every Christmas and relive the fun we had together telling your story!

"What can I say!! Amanda came to our home and captured some beautiful photos of me and my little girl. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and I am so glad I didn’t put it off. We will treasure these photos forever and already have some of them printed and displayed in our home. Thank you Amanda for capturing such special memories for us!"

amy charlotte reedie
xo,

We had a family shoot done with our little boy, and I was worried he wouldn’t stay still/not cry in all the pictures. Amanda was incredible with him (and us)… She put us all totally at ease, and got family shots of us that we will treasure forever.
If you are worried about having to “pose” for pictures (as we were), DON’T! We barely knew Amanda was there, and so the pictures are natural and perfect
