About Amanda

About Me

I laugh. A lot. Maybe too much, and maybe at inappropriate times on occasion.


When I was working in the corporate world, I never wanted to “waste” vacation time that wasn’t spent scuba diving with my husband. I am a sucker for fine paper – but hey, I spent 10 years of my life as a fine paper rep, so that’s bound to happen. I play the piano, and at one time, the violin.


Mexican food is where it’s at. I love roller coasters but am scared of heights. I have a slight obsession with the smell of Lemon Pledge, Murphey’s Oil Soap, and Lavendar Pine Sol. My favorite aisle at any store is the office products aisle. Someday, I’d like to move to San Diego, but my favorite city in the world is Cusco, Peru.


I have a wonderful husband and son who is just like him. I have a daughter who, bless her heart, is just like me.


Life is amazing.

My Photography Journey

My photography journey started with an old Pentax Honeywell 35mm camera my father taught me how to use. It was his first camera and then became mine.


I studied photography all through high school and worked my way through college at the local paper on the photo desk. I am the sappy girl who has to wipe away tears when I look at images from my favorite photographers, most of whom are photojournalists.


I still have that old Honeywell. It sits on my desk where I can look at it and remember how I got here.
