The thing is, I hadn't had professional photos taken of me since I was a senior in high school. Without going into detail, that was way too long ago. Of course, my family takes snapshots of me all the time, but I didn't have any photos that stood out as a "headshot." And certainly nothing from a smartphone that works for a high res situation.
Thankfully, I know a local photographer. I've known Amanda from Amanda Mae Images for a few years now. Amanda was incredibly flexible and available to help me with my tight schedule. Fitting me in for a quick shoot right away.

During the shoot in the park, she helped me relax and be myself. And not be as awkward as I felt. On top of all that, she got the photos to me the very next day. That's some seriously fast service.
Back when I had those high school portraits made, it was difficult to pick photos to keep. There were hardly any decent ones. Really, truly. But with the shots Amanda got, it was hard to choose just one.
In addition to the headshots, she did a few fun photos too. It's nice to know I've got those pictures in case I need one in the future.
Amanda travels all over doing wedding photography. She does family shoots and portriats. Her photos are gorgeous. Seriously. Go check out her website and see for yourself. You can even see the beautiful way she has captured her journeys to Uganda. She has a real heart for missions.
Bottom line: if you need a photographer, talk to Amanda. She is an artist. And she is wonderful.
