Columbia Tennessee senior photographer providing a boutique photography experience  12 south mural

HI YA'LL!


Let's be honest. You're here to figure out if you want to book muah for your session. You've gotten this far and wanna know a bit about me. So here goes.


I am a lover of life. I juggle a million things but I believe we get one life - live it. I also believe my purpose in life is to use my creative eye to capture life and beauty and give it back into the world. From the moment people step in front of my camera I go from laid back me to high energy hype woman because behind the camera I see beauty that sometimes we ourselves don't see and I want you to know it! Talking about me here - I hate being in front of the camera and in my life outside of photographer I can be shy and reserved so I'm gonna make sure you look and feel amazing during your shoot! I seriously become a different person but they say we all were different masks throughout the day. I get excited about each client because I know we are going to create something unique that captures your beauty and personality while covering you in self confidence. Seriously - I wasn't always the most confident person in what I looked like and still have my struggles so if you're showing up in front of my lens I know what you may feel like and I got you girl!


So the personal stuff. Originally from North Carolina I found Tennessee by way of Florida 16 years ago and have never looked back. I am a life long learner with a background in elementary education, event planning and interior design. I'm a mom to two girls who are yin and yang. I'm a fan of all music especially Dave Matthews Band - yes showing my age. Yoga in the morning keeps me grounded and creating art, writing and gardening fills my soul. I thrive in the summer. I've been called a modern day hippy and my dream car is a CJ7 Jeep (dream it is because to own one of those you need to know a mechanic). I seriously think about just buying one and using it for photoshoots...it doesn't have to run. I'm one of those weird people that likes to clean and organzine. On the side I dabble in real estate and am the owner of Steel Magnolia Creative in Columbia, TN. I am also a real estate agent and professional juggler of many hats.


I do believe that when the client and photographer get to know each other magic happens so get ready to tell me all about you!


chat soon,

Amanda
