The first year of your baby's life is going to be over before you know it.  You will spend 9 months in anticipation, wondering what they will look like, yearning to look into their eyes for the first time.  Then just like that your baby will be here and you won't know how you ever lived without them. 

The first year is a roller coaster of emotions.  Time drags on and time flys by almost simultaneously and before you know it your baby will be celebrating their first birthday. 

Savor every special moment before they are gone forever with the first year collective. 

Only 24 collective memberships are available annually

What you can expect from your baby during their first year

Milestones

let's talk

THE BEGINNING OF YOUR BABY'S STORY

MATERNITY

The positive pregnancy test, sharing the news with friends and family, finding out gender, feeling those first little flutters that will soon turn into full blown kicks are all part of not only your story, but your baby's as well. 

It's why I encourage every mama to document the short season that is pregnancy. Your children will want to see photos of you with them in your belly, after all their story isn't complete without it.  

I believe wholeheartedly that expecting mamas deserve to be pampered which is why your maternity session can be included in your first year collective membership.

The tiniest your baby will ever be in your arms

Newborn

The moment you have waited for, prayed for, wished for is finally here and there is nothing quite like looking into your baby's eyes for the very first time.

When they are this tiny they quite literally change every single day right before your eyes. By 2 weeks old your baby will start waking up from what I call the "newborn slumber" and be much more alert and aware of their wants and needs. It's why I love capturing newborns in that first two weeks of life. They are sleepy, bendy and oh so squish-able.

It goes without saying that newborn is an absolute must age to document which is why it is included in your first year collective membership.

Tummy time & gummy smiles

3 months

By 3 months your baby will start to showcase their budding personality and give you those coveted gummy smiles. They will go from spending most of their time in your arms and on their back to beginning to master the art of tummy time.

I am convinced babies learn to intentionally smile just when mommin' feels so hard and exhausting that you just want to throw in the towel. It's like God knew we would need just that little boost of encouragement from our babies to keep pressing forward.  

While 3 month photos are absolutely precious they are what I would consider to be an "in-between" milestone. Simplicity sessions are the perfect way to capture this stage of your little ones development and help complete the story of your baby's first year.

Sitting, laughing, & finding their toes

6 months

By 6 months your baby will have doubled in size! 

Six months is my absolute FAVORITE milestone to capture aside from newborn. While every baby is different, many will start sitting independently at this age. Having the core strength for your baby to be able to hold themselves up is HUGE, not to mention really stinking cute to photograph. Instead of always staring at the floor or the ceiling they are finally exploring the world in a whole new way and it's precious.  

Your baby's personality is also now on full display and most laugh and giggle at just. about. anything. Trust me when I tell you mama, it's simply the best. 

6 months is an absolute must age to document which is why it is included in your baby's first year collective membership.

Crawling, pulling up on things, & first teeth

9 months

Your baby spent 9 months preparing to make their arrival into the world and now 9 short months later they are already mobile! (believe it or not some babies will even take their first steps around this time!)

While every baby is different, most are in full exploration mode by this age and will likely be crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything. I love capturing images of this age from the perspective of the ground looking up at them as they crawl around.   

While 9 month photos are absolutely precious they are what I would consider to be an "in-between" milestone. My short & sweet simplicity sessions are the perfect way to capture this stage of your little ones development and help complete the story of your baby's first year.

Celebrating their first birthday & standing/walking

One year

Your baby is ONE! This is a huge milestone not only for your baby but for you mama! If you are a first time mom, you made it through your first year of motherhood. If you are a seasoned mama you survived the chaos that is adding another baby into the mix. You deserve to be celebrated too!

By this age your baby will have really started to gain independence. While every baby is different, most have started walking/standing in some form or another either by holding mom or dads hands or on their own.  

1 year is an absolute must age to document for the entire family (not just baby!) which is why it is included in your baby's first year collective membership.

- HARRIS FAMILY

"WE’VE HAD THREE SESSIONS SO FAR IN OUR BABY’S FIRST YEAR COLLECTIVE AND WE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER!"

Kind Words

We love shooting with Amanda! Her photos are beautiful and she is amazing at capturing all the little details. She is so patient with all of our family members and is wonderful with our boys!

She has an incredible moms closet, filled with gorgeous dresses to wear during shoots! Ladies, it is so nice not to have to search high and low for a dress being pregnant and afterward when you are seriously sleep deprived!

We are so excited to see our baby’s next few sessions and watch our baby grow over this first year. This is such a precious time in our little boys life and I’m so glad that we are able capture it with Amanda!

- KEETON FAMILY

"I WAS LITERALLY STUNNED BY ALL OF OUR PHOTOS. ALL OF THEM. I WISH I COULD PRINT EVERY SINGLE ONE."

Kind Words

We LOVE our photos from Amanda. Over the years we've worked with many photographers, and she is one of THE best!

I am especially sensitive about my body after having a baby, so I love that Amanda goes the extra mile by providing flattering photo-ready wardrobe options for her moms and styling advice for the best look.

Usually during photo sessions I feel a bit awkward and posed but she made all of us feel at ease and we had fun!

We treasure your work and couldn't give a higher recommendation.

- SCARMARDO FAMILY

"THEY SAY “A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS,” BUT TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE PHOTOS AMANDA HAS CAPTURED OF MY FAMILY HAVE LEFT ME SPEECHLESS AND IN TEARS, ABSOLUTELY IN AWE OF THEIR BEAUTY."

Kind Words

Aside from being gifted behind the camera, Amanda has a fun and nurturing character that makes her maternity, newborn and family shoot styles unique from each other and so so special.

Her session styles are centered around familial needs, which allows her to capture beautiful, natural moments.

Amanda has put the tender, freely given, love and care of Christ on display from the moment we met her, and is a true joy to spend time with. We are thankful, grateful and blessed for and by Amanda!

- SCHROY FAMILY

"AMANDA RADIATES A CONTAGIOUS JOY AND FUN PASSION WHEN SHE IS BEHIND THE CAMERA. IT WAS A BLESSING TO HAVE HER AS OUR PHOTOGRAPHER FOR OUR FIRST FAMILY PHOTOS WITH OUR DAUGHTER."

Kind Words

We are SO grateful for Amanda! As soon as I reached out to book a newborn session with her she was very helpful, personable, and flexible. I could tell right away that she really cared about us and our story behind the photos.

My husband & I were both so impressed with how much time and effort she put in to think through the details for each step of the process for her clients. With a new baby around, this made everything super easy & enjoyable for us! And our photos turned out so perfect!

- Henderson Family

"I left our shoot amazed by the experience. THEN I saw the pictures. And I cried. She captured each of my children perfectly."

Kind Words

She captured their natural smiles, their personalities, our relationships with the kids, all of it, beautifully. 

Because of Amanda I never have to stress about finding outfits for my family of 6 or spend time figuring out what to do with my images.

Amanda walked me through her custom design process which allowed me to use our favorite photos from sessions with her over the last couple years to create 2 wall galleries in our new home... she even installed them herself!

- DIPRIMA FAMILY

"NOTHING WOULD PREPARE ME FOR THE OVERWHELMING RUSH OF EMOTIONS SEEING HOW PERFECTLY AMANDA CAPTURED OUR LITTLE ONE."

Kind Words

When I found out I was pregnant with my third I planned everything ahead of time. I knew I wanted to document it all. However, as baby's do, she had her own plan. She arrived premature, weighing only 4 lbs 9 oz.

Despite the change in timeline with my little girl's arrival Amanda made it so EASY and got baby in within days of her NICU discharge.

I would 100% recommend Amanda.

- BEILMAN FAMILY

"AMANDA NOT ONLY CREATES PRICELESS IMAGES, BUT SHE CREATES PRICELESS MEMORIES TOO."

Kind Words

Amanda Carter is hands-down the BEST photographer that I've ever worked with. She is very kind and funny, which puts the whole family at ease. And as a bonus she is wonderful with children!

When I look back at the photos that she's taken of us, it brings back such good memories of a fun day together with my family. 

I cannot recommend her enough!

- RAY FAMILY

"IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE IN LOVE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, IF SO WE TOTALLY ARE!"

Kind Words

From beginning to end Amanda was so thorough, easy to work with, and the best part, a beaming light.

The dresses she had for me to try on for pictures, props, wraps, and all the bows for my daughter were just an added bonus! We spent 3 hours together and time passed quickly because we were having so much fun.

As a new mom, you can easily get a little squirmy watching someone else with your 9 day old baby. However, Amanda made me feel the opposite. My husband and I cannot wait for the upcoming years so we can document all of our daughters milestones with Amanda.

- BONEAU FAMILY

"EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT TO HER TALENT IS HOW PERSONNEL SHE MAKES THE SESSIONS AND YOUR EXPERIENCE. HER ATTENTION TO DETAIL BLEW MY MIND AWAY."

Kind Words

I had an instant connection with Amanda and I knew God crossed our paths intentionally. Amanda is an absolutely phenomenal photographer. She is intentional with the entire family.

I was so worried about how my 4 year old was going to act during our session and Amanda made a point to focus on him and he fell in love with her from the moment we opened the door.

- DAVIS FAMILY

"SHE MADE US FEEL INCREDIBLY WELCOME IN HER PERSONAL STUDIO, SHE WAS SO WARM AND KIND, AND SHE IS A BABY WHISPERER. I LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS SHOOT WITH HER."

Kind Words

I just got my newborn photos back from Amanda and I’m speechless!!

I told her I was wishing for a picture of my toddler and new baby together but didn’t think it was possible...she didn’t just get me one she got me several gorgeous photos!!

The sweet moments she captured I’ll cherish forever.
