2018 Favorite Portraits There is a second branch to Amanda May Photos, and that is portrait photography. Portrait photography includes seniors, families, newborns, maternities, birthdays, headshots, fundraisers, anniversaries, and more. It’s pretty much anything I shoot that is not a wedding or an engagement, which are the main purpose of AMP. Sometimes, it means shooting […]

He just ALWAYS comes through with parting the […]

Mom and dad were married the day before yesterday, her newborn pics were yesterday and her 6 month pictures were two hours before this session. Obviously I’m exaggerating, but seriously, that’s what it feels like. It is incredible getting to watch […]
