"Do not hesitate to contact Nice Life Photography!! Amanda is personable, professional, and a true artist. From beginning to end my boudoir photo shoot was an amazing experience. In my first call to schedule the shoot, Amanda listened to my thoughts and desires and then worked to ensure those desires were met. The day of the shoot Amanda and Desiree made me feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful. There was nothing cheap or derogatory about it. The entire experience was liberating, empowering, and a whole lot of fun! The photo reveal was just as wonderful. I am so pleased with the photos and Amanda’s artistic eye. This is something my husband and I will treasure for a lifetime. Amanda, thank you for helping me celebrate love, life, and the next chapter in my journey!

After two back to back heartbreaks, I contacted Amanda about a photo shoot. I had previously heard her describe why she was drawn to boudoir photography, and now I felt I truly understood what she had expressed. I needed someone with her vision.I was in the midst of what St. John of the Cross originally penned “The Dark Night of the Soul.” Some may assert that I am too young to use such a phrase, but age is determined by more than mere years. A lifelong romantic, I doubted love and outright turned my back on romance. I was jaded by my heartbreaks.On the one hand, I no longer wished to be merely an emotional fixer. I had more to offer than picking her up when she was hurt and reminding her she was beautiful. I too was beautiful, with arms to hold her and fingers to run through her hair.On the other hand, I no longer wished to be merely a challenge or a trophy to be won. I had more to offer than simply pinning her against a wall. I too was a whole person who needed a safe place with someone who cared about my pains and my joys.I gave in to believing this false dichotomy; that I would only ever be one or the other – and something to be used either way. I needed help seeing myself as a cohesive whole again: a beautiful soul housed in a beautiful body.Amanda gently directed me through what I never thought I would need. I had previously taken“revenge body photographs,” but they were mostly focused on my body – what one could have had.She showed me my soul as reflected in my eyes at the same time that she captured the natural beauty of my body without any gimmicks.Amanda played a significant role in reminding me that I am not one or the other, but the whole package – a gift whose value is not decreased simply because others did not see it or value it. I am extremely grateful for our session and her talent.

Taking pictures of special occasions was always my Grandmother's specialty- she would buy film for her little film cameras and get them developed regularly- they were nothing super professional but they meant a lot to her. After she passed, the photography of celebrations with friends and family no longer happened - and moments are not relived in photo albums like they were before. 

Amanda approached us about photographing our couple maternity photos and honestly I was not thinking about getting anything done professionally before she asked. After we talked with Amanda, we both knew that she would be the perfect photographer for us and that she would be able to create meaningful photographs for us. 

Amanda made us feel so comfortable and special. She not only captured our love and joy for the baby that is coming but also the love that we share with each other. Amanda created such a calm space for us and was very prepared with ideas for our photo sessions. She is unbelievably easy to work with, both in setting up the maternity couple shoot and the Vogue maternity shoot, the day of and when she delivered the images. She is super responsive over text and provided our photos ahead of schedule. 

Most people might feel uncomfortable being vulnerable in front of a camera but she made it so easy and did I mention that the pictures came out flawlessly? She even surprised us by having two photographs printed for us. We framed them and they light up our little apartment which makes us smile every time we see them. She created beautiful photographs that the whole family enjoys and something we can share with our son when he is older. 

We are so grateful for her creativity, authenticity, drive, and passion to create beautiful pieces of art that we truly relate to and want to share with others. 

We could not recommend Amanda more!
