I'm Amanda, a 25 year old graduate from the University of Houston.
From as far back as I can remember, I've had an obsession with documenting events and moments to look back on. Through out middle and high school, I was always taking pictures of even the smallest of moments with friends and family because to me, they meant something. I truly fell in love with photography when I began learning about my family history. My grandma would always pull out these dusty, tattered photo albums and tell us stories about family members we had never met, and the incredible lives they led. Looking at the photos, faces and stories that lied beneath them, I began to realize how valuable memories like these are. From then on, I took up photography in high school and never looked back!
Aside from just loving the art of photography, running my own business has been so natural and exciting. Not only am I loving the thrills of creating memories for others with my photography business, I also run a tutoring center with my mom! During high school, we started Aspire Advancement Center (shameless plug: www.aspire-now.com) where I fell in love with tutoring kids and watching them find confidence in themselves. I give all thanks to my mom for introducing me to the idea that I could do what I love and work for myself!
My dream is that my work is something people treasure and look back years and years from now to come and remember this time in their life- a moment in time captured to live on forever.
