She was so creative during our session and I was blown away with the portraits. Absolutely amazing! The art turned out so beautifully. If you are looking for a baby and family photographer, look no further. This was easily the best professional photography experience I’ve ever had.”

Best experience ever with this photo shoot! She was so patient with all 3 of my kids(4yo,2yo,2weeks) and got all the shots I had imagined up from pinterest and then some I didn't even know I would like until I saw them😍 She had some many options to pick from for props and wraps. Thank you so much for capturing my important life milestones!!! 6 out of 5 stars all day!!!

Amanda is a reliable photographer; she was prepared, fun, and personable, making my family feel comfortable during our photo sessions. My niece and nephew are active and love to run and play! Amanda was exceptionally nurturing to them and us during our time with her. She had creative tricks up her sleeve to keep my niece and nephew's attention on the camera. Her skills and patience made us love her even more. She was wonderful, and I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to work with her. This photo session was fun, interactive, and creative! She took captivating photos that we will treasure forever.

Amanda was wonderful to work with. We were so pleased with how all the pictures turned out. We communicated back and forth about different locations and she was such a big help finding the perfect spots. We will definitely use her for all future pictures!

We loved working with Amanda. She took both our girls 1 year old pictures and did an amazing job. We definitely plan on using her again in the future.

I don’t have enough words to tell you how amazing Amanda is. She is truly passionate about what she does and you can see that in her work. She took the time to listen to my ideas and make it happen. Not only was she able to connect with my family and capture who we are, but she made sure we were comfortable through the whole process. I will forever cherish those beautiful moments and memories from that day!

Amanda Barrett is just amazing. She is so talented at taking pictures and also made us feel really comfortable behind the camera. We are awkward and have never booked a photography session ever so didnt know "what to do". She was very patient with us and we wound up actually having fun which I was nervous about. We were very impressed with the final outcomes of our pictures as well - She did an awesome job of editing them (not to change us but to make the picture just stand out). We couldn't recommend her more - an absolute great experience, I wish I would have done it WAY sooner!!!
