Amanda Nicole Stoufer-Owner/Photographer
Let me introduce myself, your photographer....
I am a local to Richmond, Virginia. I see the beauty Richmond holds and am organically in LOVE with this city! Naturally, I want to have it as my canvas through not just my personal life, but also as well as my work. I am a momma, a wife, a gatekeeper for my home, and photographer! I love my little family moments, learning/telling others' personal stories, and I LOVE light!!! The little flares of sun that hits our eye at the right moment in the day. It is refreshing to have the play with light like shadows and depth. Even the rise and fall that makes our days timed are something I value in life not just by its visual gift but by its purpose. I chase light like I chase moments to photograph, purely with my heart!
The emotions and steps in our journey are what make us who we are each day forward. I love that I can really look back at that and soak those moments in by using photography. I feel nothing more than to be honored to have the chance to capture life and to create stories unique to each client. There is a link between each person and the world around and its an obsession of mine. As I seek the raw and real moments of your story, I offer a professional eye for little details and give direction while allowing you to be comfortable being in your true form.
From life inspired (my favorite to my heart) to portrait and posed.... I LOVE it ALL! I am trained in newborn photography and have a small studio space filled with props and tools to keep the session options successful. From training on techniques and more importantly safety, I am highly dedicated to the world of newborns. I am fully licensed and insured as well as having many successful learning moments. My days not filled with work or family times gifts me access to continued career education. It is an honor to work with community projects when life allows and I value those opportunities just as much as my time with all my clients.
I do offer a small studio area as well as an office for any needs outside of a sitting. Please keep in mind I am more than happy to consult more locally to you, the client. I adore that sessions are unique, so I spend much time researching and exploring for locations throughout the vast amount of space in Richmond. It is also a pleasure to work with anyone in their own home or on a location of their choice and special to their story.
Life happens so fast, and changes occur so often that we find ourselves filled with so many memories and stories. As a photographer, it is my job to secure those in printed form so that you can forever keep that close and are given the chance to share those galleries with generations to come! Photography is like capturing a story that needs shared! I want to capture your story. I want to tell your story through your images I respect that each and every stage in life deserves to be remembered and valued. I have this thing about life where it is just too short and why would we ever want to let it fade away in our memories as we age? Why would we not want to save them in the most beautiful perspective so that our moments last a lifetime? Our baby's tiny toes and nose. Our wedding tears and the smile on our faces at the " I do". The first year celebrations. The high school graduation pride. Engagement excitement. The birth and new life we create. Sweet animal companions. The list goes on. Your images at my session represent YOUR little printed love.
