Amanda must have emailed me about a year ago now, just to say HI! She's this amazing birth photographer based in Raleigh and she just wanted to chat. I was super flattered, just because she's just so talented. Wondered why on Earth she wanted to meet me, responded, we met for lunch at Guglhupf (which is one of my favorite places to nibble on delightful treats) and I liked her instantly. She is so easy to talk to and we must have chatted for three hours. We mostly talked photography and babies but the whole time I was thinking she could totally be my new friend. It's so great to meet people who share your passions. Anyways, so we kept on chatting. She had her new little sweet baby and I got to go over to her place for some sweet mommy and baby shots (again, flattered!!!). I really love these images because I just find them so touching. She is such a great mother and you can just see how truly happy her babies make her. Being around her with her babies brings me joy. There is so much emotion. Because of it, I have a ton of black and whites. They are not all b&w, just the ones I blogged.
Anyways, when you are done looking at these go check out her work. You'll love it. Oh, and she makes these incredibly beautiful babies. That is a special talent right there.
