Hi there! My name is Amanda Brooke and I am a natural light photographer based in Loudoun County, Virginia. I am a wife to my wonderful husband (a charming Englishman!) and a proud mama to two amazing little ones. Our daughter, Charlie, is 3 going on 13 and our son, Jack, is a small but mighty 18 month old. The two of them are the most beautiful things I've ever laid eyes on and my biggest accomplishments in life; although I know most mothers feel the same way about their kids - and that's how it should be! My family inspire me more than anything else. We love travel, adventure and food. I am an art teacher by trade, but after having my daughter I decided to focus on starting my own business doing something creative that would allow me to stay at home with my children. I absolutely love all forms of art, but photography has always been a passion of mine and it became even more so after having my children and developing this burning desire to document everything and to be able to do it as beautifully as possible. I feel so lucky to have a career that I am so in love with!
I recently attended the most amazing workshop (a genuine dream come true!) with two photographers who I admire on so many levels: Sarah Hill of Sarah Beth Photography and Sarah Cornish of My Four Hens Photography, and it was simply incredible. At one point during the workshop Sarah Cornish said, "I want your moments, not your poses." YES! Those words spoke straight to my heart and are what I'm all about! At every session I strive to capture each family as authentically as possible. Your photo session shouldn't be stressful and it's my job to ensure that it isn't. I want you to be you and I want your kids to be kids. I promise that I will capture moments that you didn't realize even existed because those are the ones that matter most. My clients are near and dear to me and capturing their family memories is such an honor for me. If you think we would be a good match for one another, then please get in touch and contact me about booking your family's session!
