11/ 31 EPIC SUMMER SESSIONS |Feature by Amanda Hall Photography


Is this session personal work or client work?

This session was a mixture of personal and client, as this is one of my best friends and her daughter. Their session was a gift.

Tell us a bit about the magic of summer + the connection to your lens?

I love summer – the colors, lack of clothes, dirt everywhere, finding every excuse to get wet. Capturing all of that is my happy place!

What about this session makes it an Epic summer session?

This was my first time shooting in a creek after yearning to for quite awhile. I loved just following this momma and daughter around. Watching them explore, hearing their laughter, seeing such tenderness all while stomping around in a creek – to me that is the epitome of summer-filled good time.

What else is on your summer bucket list to photograph this summer?

Naked feet, puddles, devouring watermelon, kites being flown, bonfires, camping… Really, my list just doesn’t end. Give me all of summer

What gear was used to achieve these?

I was using a Nikon D750 and was using my Nikon 35mm 1.4 for these images.

Any summer tips or photographer advice?

Goodness, I still have so much to learn! Me give advice?! LOL I guess something that I keep telling myself is to keep pushing and shooting. And enjoy it all while doing so! Oh, and get a DiCAPac cause it rocks!




Hello! I’m a wife, momma, and daughter lovin’ life here in the Midwest. A follow-your-gut, listen-to-your-heart, dance-to-your-own-beat lady who thinks nothing of new and wild adventures. Nothing puts me more in awe or sends my love overflowing more than witnessing our boys’ explore all that life has to give while loving on each other and my hubs and I. Volunteering makes my soul sing and feel complete in a way that nothing else ever has. I truly believe it takes a village to raise babies and I am so thankful for my parents, in-laws, adopted U.K. family, and my community of amazing mommas both near and far. My friends are gifts and chosen family members. I’m still my Dad’s Sunshine and my mom is one of my best friends. My husband is the very best man I’ve ever known, who tells me he loves me all day through and makes our life laughter-filled. I love grass beneath my bare feet, bonfires on a cool night, fishing in early misty mornings, road trips, playing card games, and family dance parties. To be honest, there isn’t much I don’t love.
