Hocus Focus Photography

Hello! I'm Amanda, and I'm the photographer at Hocus Focus Photography. I have three little girls of whom I love very much and photograph often, much to their refusal, so candid moments fill the walls of our home. They are my muse and my inspiration for all of my personal projects.

I strive to stand upon my own style of photography and create something new and fresh with every session. While I believe a steady workflow is important for consistency, I don't believe that should restrict the boundaries of my creativity. After all, creativity has no bounds.

Comfort is the enemy of progress and I love to push myself by entering photography competitions. While I am humbly thankful for the work I am able to do and appreciative of trust my clients put in me to capture stunning images of their loved ones, I am also proud of the level of work and commitment I put into each of my sessions; into each of my clients' experiences; into each individual photograph.

I like making people happy, but even more so, I love making them genuinely excited. I like meeting expectations, but I love exceeding them. I like taking pictures, but I love works of art. I like tradition, but I love the unexpected surprise.

If we've met before, I send a warm hello! And if not, I hope I'm one day lucky enough to change that!

What others are saying…

There is a reason Amanda fills up her newborn spots way in advance. Her talent is incredible. She was gentle, professional and calm with our 9 day old son. Amanda will be one of the first to know if we have another pregnancy.

We could literally go on forever about the Amazing experience we had with Amanda at Hocus Focus Photography. Not only were our newborn pictures out of this world beautiful but we have never received the level of service that Amanda gave us ANYWHERE! Our experience was absolutely exceptional from start to finish. Amanda is one of a kind and we could not be happier with our decision of choosing her to capture such a special milestone in our lives. Thank You.

I am thoroughly impressed! Amanda is so great with kids. Her perky personality won over my kids. Her studio is a reflection of her creativity. She has got an abundance of props, wraps, and everything else in between! She is one person who is truly passionate about what she does. I wish I had known about her sooner so she could have photographed my other two children. Amanda, I wish you continued success, the world is your oyster! Thank you for capturing such beautiful moments of my children. You have created sweet memories for our family.

I can’t say enough great things about Amanda. She is a baby whisperer and creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Thank you for the great pictures and for giving us living memories of our little one for life.
