Hey there,

I'm Amanda, the lady behind the lens. You're here because you want to capture the soul of your family OR have a fun portrait session for your kiddos. I'm here to help you....as I dust confetti off my computer from this morning's studio session.

These moments pass and as time passes they can only return when a memory is evoked. That is the power of photography. It is my mission to capture the true essence of you and those you love - regardless of age. Baby to senior - I love something about every age. Each photo that leaves the studio leaves is unique as every one of us is unique. Our connections to each other - one of a kind. I believe in capturing the real and authentic- your true spirit - and I find passion in doing that with my camera. I also am not just a point and shoot kind of photographer. I'm active in my sessions (running, laughing, rolling in the grass....) and after your session I don't want to just hand you your digitals to be lost to the depths of your hard drive. I'm a full service photographer and I offer everything from digitals of course to heirloom albums and fine art prints. So grab a minute or two or three along with your favorite beverage and relax into my little world here at Amanda McNeal Photography.

Our pictures are absolutely stunning! She turned them around so quickly. Of course we had to purchase the whole gallery because there is no way to pick just five. The candid pictures of the boys are just priceless and accurately capture their spunk and personality. She is so talented and we love being able to have a session with her every year to capture our family as we grow up.

When should I book?

I typically book two months out but do have openings pop up due to life changes. The busiest time of year is spring and fall so if you want a session then it's never too early to book.

Do you do mini sessions?

We absolutely do! I offer mini sessions throughout the year. They include creek sessions, sunflower sessions, fall, Christmas tree and Santa to name a few. Join our newsletter to be the first to know.

Do you provide wardrobe?

We love to assist you in choosing your wardrobe! I do not have a studio wardrobe however I will work with you using your pieces to create a session wardrobe that will reflect you.

Do you offer hair and make-up?

Well yes we do. We have a list of preferred hair and make up artists we can recommend. Some of our sessions include hair and make up as well!

When will we get our photos and how long do we have to order?

Upon completion of your session you will receive a sneak peak within 24 hours. You will receive your full gallery within 2 weeks. Once your order is placed you will receive your prints and products within two weeks.

How many pictures will we receive?

Your gallery will hold 20-60 retouched images depending on your session. These images will be fully retouched when you receive them.

Do you have payment plans?

Please email to discuss our payment plan options. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, Venmo and PayPal.

Do you do headshots of large groups?

Yes. When a photographer captures an entire office or company it gives their website a more professional and cohesive look.
