Eugene Oregon In Home Newborn Session

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
