Hi there!
I'm Amanda...
your photographer!

I'm also an educator to thousands of other photographers, Momma to my incredible son, fierce special education advocate, proud blue line wife & daughter, and so much more.


My love for photography was born when my son was born... I wanted to learn how to take better pictures of him & our lives changed forever.

I didn't know it then, but God had plans for our family that rocked us to our core. We found out that our amazing son had special needs & because of photography, I was able to quit my full time job as a Juvenile Probation Officer and be the Mom he needed me to be.

Since then, we've been on this incredible roller coaster ride and I wouldn't have it any other way!

In 2007, I graduated with two Bachelors of Science degrees from Sam Houston State University: one in Criminal Justice & one in Psychology. 

When I began my photography career, I was working as a Juvenile Probation Officer when I noticed that a severe lack of confidence was a common factor among my female juvenile probationers. I decided right then and there to make my goal for the AHP senior portrait experience to infuse confidence into my clients and help them realize how beautiful they really are. It’s amazing what gorgeous images can do for a teenager’s self esteem! Since then, I’ve become a leader in the senior photography industry and even help other studios nation-wide to help bring their seniors an amazing senior portrait experience unlike any other.

Enneagram 8, type A as they come... but I live for my family and swear I liked blush pink before anyone else.
