Amanda has been a very close friend of mine for 7-8 years. We’re both photographers so it is really helpful to bounce ideas off of each other. She has been very supportive of this project from the beginning and has come to every session so far to take ‘behind the scenes’ photos for me and to help me around the set. I couldn’t do this project without support from good friends and family.

Here is a bit from Amanda E:

“My name is Amanda Dian. I am a maternity and newborn photographer. I’ve worked for various corporate studios across North Texas and Southern Oklahoma. With the support of my husband, I started my own business in April 2006 and shortly after I met Amanda in her early years in fashion. We’ve been friends and supporters of each others work ever since.

We’ve also traded many photo sessions for one another, including my bridal portraits and a family session with a former foster son. The most meaningful session to date was a practice session for her new style of beauty photography.

After a bought of depression caused by the loss of my mother, I gained back all the weight I’d worked so hard to lose. The last thing I wanted was to be on the other side of the camera. But as usual, we had a lot of fun and laughs.

I was anxious about to see the finished images and I wasn’t dissapointed! I was blown away and tearing up at the inages in front of me. I didn’t see the weight gain. I saw the wrinkled nose that my husband loves when I laugh. I saw pieces of my mom looking back at me, showing me that she’s still with me, and always will be.”
