I am a lifestyle photographer based in Eugene, Oregon. I specialize in candid family and maternity sessions set against stunning locations like the Oregon Coast or Cascades. I also have a big love for intimate in-home family and newborn sessions.

In cultivating a lighthearted and welcoming atmosphere, my goal is to foster a relaxed and friendly dynamic during your photo session. My interactive and joyful approach focuses on capturing genuine moments. Parents who encourage their kids to be kids and explore nature, while trusting in the beauty of authentic connection, are my kind of families. I will provide direction as needed, but I will also step back and photograph your family not just for what you look like, but for who you are. Resulting in imagery that illustrates your family's unique story as masterful works of art. 

I am also a wife, mama to two wild little things, yogi, nature lover, and dance party enthusiast. To me, family is everything. It's my main inspiration in life and I absolutely love connecting with others who share the same view.

I'm Amanda

Hello & welcome! 

of Lux Marina Photography

"Amanda is unbelievably talented & also very down to earth. She took the time to make my shy children feel comfortable & they had so much fun during the shoot. I feel so grateful to have these beautiful photos to treasure as my babies grow older. If you are thinking about booking a family session I highly recommend Amanda. We will definitely be booking more photoshoots with her again in the future."

Rachel - Motherhood session

What clients are saying

"We loved our experience with Lux Marina Photography. Amanda put the whole family at ease. Which is no small task with my photo-resistant husband and two young children. The whole morning felt so much like a playful romp in nature, I almost forgot we were doing a shoot. Which I realize now must have been her goal - she captured such wonderfully candid and tender moments between us!"

Aidan - Family session

What clients are saying

Amanda is such an amazing photographer! My husband & I can be pretty awkward, but she made us feel so comfortable like we were just hanging out with a good friend while getting pictures of us taken. She was open to all of my different location ideas& very quick at responding to questions. I highly recommend her for your intimate family photos & I am very much looking forward to doing our newborn photos with her.
