Hey, boo!

Hi! My name is Amanda. I'm the proud weirdo behind the lens who is going to make you feel like a ROCK STAR. I'm a Boudoir and Empowerment Photographer located in Dayton, Ohio!

When I'm not in the studio, you can find me soaking up the sun with my family and friends. I love going to concerts, traveling, caffeine free Coke Zero, and all things spooky,

I've strived to create a safe space at my studio empowering bodies of all shapes and sizes. I believe that we should celebrate every roll, dimple, ripple, crease, stretch mark, scar, and so on because this is the only body we'll ever get. Are you ready to see the part of you that you can't see in the bathroom mirror?

"Seeing these pictures made me see that I'm gorgeous..."

My biggest takeaway from the shoot is being comfortable in my own skin. I was raised that skinny = beautiful and I’ve been lucky to be thin most of my life. After 2 babies and eating all the things in quarantine, I’ve been trying so hard to loose the weight - diets, exercising, fad diet trends. Seeing these pictures made me see that I’m gorgeous just the way I am, right here, right now. I’m comfortable with how I look and honestly, I think this is the first time in my life I can say that.

Friends, book that shoot. You will not be sorry.


"I've never felt more beautiful and sexy in my life!"

I've never felt more beautiful and sexy in my life! The whole process was fun from beginning to end. Matter fact when it was over I was a little sad, I was enjoying feeling like a Queen. I walked out of my session feeling different about myself I can't wait to book again!!!


"I have never felt so empowered or so sexy..."

I absolutely love you for showing me through your amazing eyes and lens! I have never felt so empowered or so sexy and beautiful as I do in these pictures! I actually went to the photo shoot wondering how you were gonna hide my hideous scars and the fact of not having breasts but you didn’t make me or even let me hide them at all! You embraced me and opened me up to love and accept myself more! I will forever be extremely grateful! ML&R!!
