Introduction: Hi! I’m Amanda. I dig moody vibes, organic pops of color, and using nature as my backdrop. Stiff, studio poses aren't my jam, so I hope they're not yours, either! Shooting outdoors is where my true passion lies, and my #1 goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I believe that love is love, black lives matter, and everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. In my free time, I enjoy running, baking, brushing up on my Mandarin, exploring the Bay Area with my husband, and updating my travel and lifestyle blog, Little Tranquility. P.S. I recommend visiting my website for better quality photos, and clearer information regarding pricing! Thank you!

We absolutely love working with Amanda! We had our family photos taken by her the last two summers and have been very, very happy with the results! Amanda is great with our children (and this year, our new puppy)! She's gifted at finding great candid shots as well as making posed shots seem natural and not stiff. Both of our sessions have been at local parks and she scouts the park out beforehand to find perfect picture backgrounds. Amanda has been amazing and we would recommend her to anyone!

Amanda is incredibly talented at her craft. She was responsive and courteous from the start. She was willing to take time from her family’s thanksgiving weekend to drive to SF to photograph my family. She arrived on time and ready to shoot. She was creative given the rain, and the kids all felt comfortable with her photographing her. The results are priceless. She is upfront on her turnaround time. Once we saw the final result, we can see the work that went into it. We will have and cherish these photos forever. If you are looking for a professional, kind and expert photographer, look no further. We cannot wait to work with Amanda again in the future !

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For weddings, I ask for a 10% reservation fee upon booking to secure your date, and for all other sessions, the reservation fee is $50. For weddings, the remaining balance is due one week before the wedding, and for all other sessions, the balance is due the day-of. A travel fee will be applied to any session outside a 30-mile radius of my home in Santa Cruz.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Chat via email, phone or text, discuss photo shoot, arrange meeting time, location, and payment. After our session is complete, I will edit your photos and then send you the full resolution digital copies for easy download. I use Pixieset, a website that showcases your images in a beautiful gallery. You can download, save favorites, and share the gallery with family and friends. For an additional $20, I can also mail you a thumb drive of the images. For weddings lasting longer than 6 hours, I offer 25 free 4x6 or 5x7 prints - all photos of your choice that I mail to you after the wedding. Wedding and elopement photos will be available within 8 weeks of the event date. All other photos will be available within 4 weeks of the session date.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've loved photography since high school and have been taking photos nearly every day since then. I'm a travel blogger in my free time and love sharing my travel photos. You can find me by searching Little Tranquility on Google - I rarely leave the house without my camera! :)
