Brisbane Family Photographer | Micaela & Thomas

This family session gave me all the feels. It wasn’t just about the absolute adoration that this pair had for their little girl, but the love they showed each other spoke to me in a way I can’t even explain.
Keep an eye out for a cute gif of the two of them..

It poured down rain about 2 hours before we started and i'm not even mad about it because we ended up with such a beautiful sunset!

I mention a lot about why I love photographing raw and candid moments, I mean what photographer doesn't, right? But I thought i'd try and tell you why I love them and what it means to me…

I'm an absolute hopeless romantic. Love stories suck me in, hard. When I read a book or watch any kind of movie or tv show with romance in it, I easily become invested. I live and breathe their love. Their chemistry.. I'm talking Aria & Ezra, Jane & Rafael, Anastasia & Christian (you get the idea!)... These moments between these fictional lovers literally ignites something inside of me.. So when I meet a couple and they let their true selves unfold in front of me and they let their love for each other speak without any words being spoken, I get hooked. I'm immediately invested. I become a creeper standing in front of you yelling, "Yasssss, get it girl!" "Kiss her like you mean it!" I am 100 percent roaring for you and your love.. And when the sun sets and i'm driving home, i'll be thinking to myself, "HECK YES! That was mother loving FIRE" and my soul will literally be ignited..

..So how lucky am I, that this connection and this fire that burns within me, that I feel so strongly, is what I get to spend my days documenting.

A note from Thomas;
”I honestly can not recommend Amanda highly enough. When my partner told me we had a photo shoot I thought “oh great” but as soon as we arrived Amanda made it so comfortable and enjoyable.
The entire photo shoot was so fun and the memories we will now have forever are priceless. Very pleased with Amanda’s work”

Brisbane Family Photographer | The McDowall's

This particular family session (like many that I photograph) was one that absolutely fuelled my soul.

The golden light, the beautiful styling of their outfits, the connection.

The free spirited giggles that escaped their mouths, the completely genuine smiles.

And the love.
The absolute love and adoration that these four have for each other was just so incredible to capture.

Thank you for allowing me to photograph your family and to create timeless art from your moments together.

Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Jessika & Brent

I recently photographed the wedding of one of my close friends and to say the day was beautiful is an understatement! I’ve known Jessika and Brent for over 9 years now and i’ve loved being apart of the special moments in their life. Jessika and I were pregnant together with both of our children (I even had the honour of photographing her second daughters birth) and now sharing in their wedding day has been so amazing.

I’m quite an emotional person however I’m always so focused on capturing moments during a wedding ceremony that I don’t often get teary. However seeing how emotional Brent was when he finally got to see his beautiful bride (she literally looked like a princess, am I right!?) had me crying behind my camera (as well as all of their guests)! Their ceremony was short and sweet, but packed full of love and laughter.

Thank you both so much for allowing me to create these beautiful memories for you!

A few quick questions for the bride…

What surprised you about your wedding day?
It all went a lot more smoothly then I thought and I was a lot calmer then I thought I would be.

What was your favourite moment of the day?
When we arrived at the ceremony, getting out of the car, walking down the aisle and finally getting to see my husband to be.

What advice would you offer to other couples planning their wedding?
Take in every second, it’s all over so quickly!

Your experience working with Amanda Michelle Photography?
I wouldn’t go through anyone else, her work compares to no other! She was great on the day, capturing each moment big or small. Professional and friendly!

North Brisbane Maternity Photographer | Tennille & Brett

Back in February, I got to photograph this gorgeous couple before their sweet little baby arrived!

We were lucky enough to have a beautiful cloudy sky for their session and even luckier to have such beautiful golden light peek through towards the end! I absolutely loved being able to photograph these two and create some gorgeous images to document this incredible journey in their lives together.

See the way they look at each other as well? So much LOVE!

Did you know the best time to have your pregnancy photographed is between 30-35 weeks? Message me for more information or to book in your own session.

North Brisbane Newborn Photographer | Baby Sophia

Meet Sophia!

I recently got to photograph this little girls newborn session and i’m not going to lie, i’m a little sad that i’ve now finished editing her gallery of images! She is such a sweet, little doll!

When her Mumma came back into the studio to choose her images, she let out a few happy tears while watching her slideshow and I honestly think this is one of the best compliments I could ever receive! So much love goes into every single image that I photograph and retouch, so to see just how much these images mean to my families is so beautiful.

Have a look at that last image too! Best smile ever!

North Brisbane Family Photographer

I photographed this family recently and I just have to say, how stunning are their outfits! I love the warm, earthy tones and look at those matching fabrics on the kids, so darn cute.

These kiddies sure did keep me on my toes but how gorgeous are their sweet little faces! They had so much personality and I absolutely loved it!

I have some very last minute availability for these last few weeks of the year, so if it’s time to update your families photos, send me a message.

North Lakes Family Photography | Capturing The Candid Moments

I photographed this gorgeous family recently and they bought all the laughter and smiles to the table!

One of my favourite things to capture during family photos is emotion and candidness. I want to take the everyday moments with your children and create art pieces from them. The laughing faces, the kisses, the cuddles, the tickle fights and even the pouty faces.

I want to capture the genuine giggles of your children that result from your tickles and the glowing smiles that happen when you cuddle them. I want to create photographic memories of your children with YOU and capture the photos that you can’t.

I want you to have photos of your children that you can display proudly in your home, that you can admire daily. Even on the hard and long days with them, I want you to see these photos with their smiles and be reminded that it’s all worth it. And when those tough days are over and your children are grown up, I want you to be able to look back on these photos and realise that maybe those hard days weren’t so long after all.

So while your hustle and bustling through life, remember the importance of investing in your families photographic memories and have these fleeting moments of your children captured while they’re still young. Yearly family photos are the perfect way to document them as they grow.

North Brisbane Couples Photographer | Amy & Jim

If you can’t tell, I absolutely love capturing couples and engagement photos and Amy & Jim did not disappoint!

The love and connection that these two share is incredible and i’m so happy that I was able to document their story.

Enjoy viewing some of their beautiful images and if it’s time to book a couples or engagement session for you and the one you love, send me a message.

North Brisbane Family Photographer | The Bradley's

A few weeks ago I got to spend the afternoon with this beautiful family!

We had lots of fun with so many tickles, cuddles and laughs! I absolutely love capturing the candid moments and the genuine smiles.

Photographs are like a time capsule, they take us back to moments that we may otherwise forget. They remind us how little our babies once were because they will never be as little as they are today.

Don’t just book family photos for yourself.
Book them for your children.
For you’re grandchildren.
And for you’re great grandchildren.
Capture memories that can be handed down through each generation.

If it’s time to book in your family photos, send me a message for more information!

Tangalooma Island Resort Wedding Photographer | Kirsten & Nathan

This time, two weeks ago, we were all settled in at Tangalooma Island Resort and ready to photograph Kirsten and Nathans beautiful island wedding the following day! 

When we arrived at Tangalooma on Friday morning, we were greeted with cloudy skies and a fair bit of rain (actually, we were greeted with pouring rain when we arrived back in Brisbane on Sunday morning too!) but it didn't last long thankfully and the rest of the day was beautiful and sunny! We were even lucky enough to feed some wild dolphins during our stay as well! 

On the morning of Kirsten and Nathans wedding, we woke to a stunning double rainbow and it was such a beautiful way to start the day! The sun was shining and the weather was warm, I don't think we could have asked for anything more!

Kirsten and Nathan are such a beautiful couple and while listening to them reading their vowels, the love they have for each other was evident. 

Thank you again to both of you for allowing us to capture these memories of your special day. 

Enjoy looking at some of the gorgeous images from their day below!

North Brisbane Engagement Photographer | Louisa & Mitch

A few weeks ago I got to photograph Louisa and Mitch's engagement photo session and to say i'm in love is an understatement! 

I love being able to photograph the fun, smiley moments of my couples but I equally love capturing the raw, emotive and sometimes steamy moments as well. There's nothing quite like capturing intimate connections! 

To book in your engagement or couples session (you don't need to be engaged!) message me  for packages and information! 

In the meantime, enjoy looking through some of Louisa and Mitch's gorgeous engagement photos!
