I had the privilege of shooting Kylie’s pregnancy announcement photos, maternity photos, and now her mommy + me newborn session photos. How sweet it was to watch watch a family grow by 2 hands and two feet from announcement to arrival. Tinsley Pearl turned 3 weeks old the day of our mommy + me newborn […]

Meet baby Sofia! This red headed beauty was born at only 34 weeks gestation and was 4lbs 9oz of pure perfection. While she had a brief stay in the NICU this strong girl hit the 5lb club the morning of our session at only 12 days old! You “grow” girl! I like to think its […]

Kylie’s Studio Maternity Session. Picture this: I started my photography journey knowing zero other local photographers. If I had a question, google and my Facebook photography education groups were my only friends. I prayed and prayed for a community of like minded photographer friends since launching my business in June of last year. Community starts […]

Texas Bluebonnets, the Lone Star State’s pride and joy all wrapped up in one little flower. ¬†Truth be told, I have lived in Texas for the better part of 10 years and I have never so much as looked at a Bluebonnet. I blame Facebook. You see every year in March a video circulates of […]

Getting a request for an in-home lifestyle newborn session is quickly becoming the highlight of my day over here at Amanda Carter Photography.

High School Senior pictures are a BIG deal! In fact, I still remember taking mine 15 years ago! It was a bit of a scandal at my house actually. You see, the Lord did not see it fit to give me much to work with in the chest area. I never so much as graduated […]

Extended Family Session. I gifted one to my mom and dad this year for Christmas. I truly can’t think of a better way to say “I love you” then gifting them a family session with the people they love most… Especially given that time flies so quickly, it feels like you blink and your children […]
