When I hired Amanda to shoot images for our magazine’s annual beaches shoot, all that I asked was that she deliver photos of people frolicking and enjoying San Francisco’s popular Baker Beach. She went above and beyond on the job, recruiting dancers from her community of artists, and delivering beautifully composed images full of movement and joy that far exceeded my expectations. She thinks outside the box of traditional photography, has an energy that’s infectious, and delivers quality work... making my job that much easier!
I have had two photo shoots with Amanda over the last decade and of the many shoots I’ve experienced in a lifetime of dance and yoga, Amanda stands above the crowd as a true artist. I found myself able to let go and reveal my deepest self. This is a rare gift. The photos from my sessions with Amanda embody who I am as a healer, dancer and human being, recording for all eternity, precious moments of sharing from my heart. This has been invaluable in my promotional flyers, web sites, newsletters and networking efforts. I urge anyone who wants to collaborate art, spirit and truth, while actually enjoying the process as effortless an flowing, to work/play with Amanda.
