tacoma senior portraits

hey there, gorgeous!

I'm so happy you found me!  I'm Amanda, and I love shooting high school senior photography all around the Seattle-Tacoma area, and heck, most of the Pacific Northwest too.
I even offer a few sessions a year in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area where I grew up.
 I want your senior portrait experience to make you feel beautiful, young, and carefree; who you are in this moment in your life. To represent the person you are becoming, to showcase what makes you, well, you.
 We will talk, laugh, and create ah-mazing portraits that will be cherished forever.
 This photo shoot is all about you, I can't wait to celebrate YOU!

I'm a Washington transplant, who has come to love the rain thanks to my husband Loren.  I grew up between California and Hawaii.  I love cats and Harry Potter.  Our cats are all Weasleys: Fred, Ron and Charlie. (sadly George has passed) & we now have Jasper too!
I believe in love.  I am outgoing, serious, and studious, yet I can have fun while shooting, when I am in my element. 
I have two BA's: one in Professional Photography, one in English.  I love books, reading and creative writing (poetry is my thing.)

more about me >


hi there!

My favorite color is purple (if you couldn't tell)
I am a natural redhead, so I am full of sass and personality.
I believe that girls and women can be ANYTHING they set their minds and hearts to.  I am all for supporting women, and I love participating in events and occasions that help women to succeed.
I have been happily married for 11 years now.

xoXo, amanda

"We were fortunate enough to stumble across Amanda for my daughter’s wedding. She did such a beautiful job and was so easy to work with that I knew I wanted her to do my senior’s pictures. The Senior pictures were incredible!! Amanda makes you feel relaxed and at ease and then captures your child’s true spirit. Her use of light brought out my daughter’s natural beauty and each picture was unique to my child and not just a canned pose.  I will use Amanda for all our family’s big moments."

"Amanda is absolutely the best photographer to work with!! She did our daughter's senior pictures, and we loved everything about the process and pictures. She is extremely passionate, caring, patient, and an absolute joy to work with. Our daughter was a little out of her comfort zone with having to "model" and pose for pictures, and Amanda is wonderful at making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. We would highly recommend her to anyone, and will definitely use her services again in the future!!!"

I recommend having your senior portraits done in the Spring or Summer of your junior going into senior year. Most schools need the yearbook photo by Halloween at the latest!

When is the best time to take your senior photos?





That's great, I am so excited to be your senior photographer! Please email me your info (your name, mom's name, phone #'s and address) and we'll go from there. Yay!!

I want to book my session, what do I do now?





We all know it rains in WA, but sometimes it doesn't rain too hard. We touch base the morning of the shoot and if it's really bad, we can totally reschedule. No worries.

What happens if it is raining on the day of my shoot?
