A little bit about Amanda’s journey
Amanda’s journey as a photographer started over 10 years ago. She is very proud of every step she took and thankful to all the clients that trusted her to share their memories!
GRADUATED IN PHOTOGRAPHY AT USF
Amanda studied photography at the University of South Florida (USA) in 2010/2011 and she first started working as a wedding photographer.
SPECIALIZED IN NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
Since early 2013, newborn photography is Amanda’s specialty and she also enjoys capturing expecting moms-to-be, babies and families. She is constantly learning and improving her skills through photography workshops and in-person and online classes. She had the opportunity to meet and learn in person with some of her favourite newborn photographers around the world: Marta Ponsko, Caralee Case, Jennifer Nace, Luisa Dunn and Stephanie Robin.
SPEAKER AT TWO PHOTOGRAPHY EVENTS IN BRAZIL
In 2015, Amanda had the honour to speak at two of the most important events about newborn photography in Brazil, “O2 Desafio Newborn” and “Newborn Secrets”. The theme of her presentation was creativity and how to create an effective session workflow
RESTARTED THE BUSINESS IN VANCOUVER BC
By the end of 2015, Amanda and her husband Ricardo moved to Canada, and together, they opened their first photography studio in Vancouver BC the year after.
SPEAKER AT LUME
In 2018, Amanda also spoke at the largest photography conference in Latin America, LUME, for about 600 people. It was definitely an incredible experience to share her knowledge with so many amazing photographers!
MOVED TO CALGARY AB
After six successful years working in Vancouver, Amanda and her family decided to move to Calgary. In 2022 they are starting fresh, with a new branding, a new website, and a beautiful photography studio in one of the most popular neighbourhoods of Calgary, Beltline.
In the Media
My work was featured on TV, in magazines and 2 of my images won the Baby Photo Awards international contest in 2018. I made it to the top 100 featured artists by NAPCP in 2018 and 2019. I was also rated as the best 3 newborn photographers in Richmond from 2017 to 2022 by Three Best Rated. In 2021, 3 of my images won the AFNS Award.
Newborn photography is my pride and joy. I feel so lucky to get to do what I love and I feel honoured to capture these once-in-a-lifetime memories for wonderful families.
If you like what you see in my portfolio, you are going to love your photos! I can’t wait to meet your family and create unique memories for you!
London Drugs’ Campaign
Back in 2018, London Drugs was interested in using one of my newborn photos in their marketing campaigns. Dad brought his hockey gloves for the newborn photoshoot and the photo was perfect. It was displayed on Billboards, buses, social media and flyers.
