Your Photographer

Hi! Welcome! – I am Amanda, Photographer and Owner of Still Shots. Here is a little more about me…

I am a small-town girl from Missouri who moved to California three years ago in search of more opportunities and adventure. I got JUST that! I lived in beautiful Rancho Santa Margarita for my first year but now I am based in Huntington Beach. Although my dream was to live in Santa Monica, I fell in love with Orange County and I feel I am right where I am supposed to be.

I like to think I started my photography career in high school when I was obsessed with taking pictures of my friends and pinning them on top of my roof in my car. I also took many pictures at sporting events, I was and am a tomboy at heart.

I made the decision my Senior year to go to college for photography to learn and grow. I attended the University of Central Missouri where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Science and Technology. I continued taking pictures through college but it wasn’t until after college I started my own business. I always had a full time job and my photography was a side business that did keep me very busy.


Fast forward fifteen years later, I now reside in beautiful Orange County running my photography business full time. I am happy and excited to learn and grow even as a full time self-employed business owner. I look forward to creating the perfect Still Shot for you in any event or milestone.

“Still Shots is the place to go if you want quality and professional looking photos at a great price. Amanda is super sweet and a blast to work with. She did my wedding pictures and my baby’s newborn and first year pictures. She was very patient with us and the pictures were amazing. Thanks to Amanda at Still Shots, I can forever treasure precious family moments.”
