Hello! I am Amanda Abraham, and I’m a creative Newborn & Family photographer in Berkley, Mi. with a passion to photograph babies in particular. There is something about big toothy smiles, small toes, and giggles that just make my day. When I’m not trying to make your little peanuts laugh in photos, you can find me reading a great novel, or at home in sweats, working on some other kind of creative project. My passion is to give you memories you can look back on and remember all the little details from your child’s life.
Photoshoots with me include: Maternity, Newborn, Infant/Milestone Age Sessions (3, 6, 9 and 12 Month), Cake Smash, family, etc. with a bohemian, creative flair.
My styling as an artist uses a more relaxed, lifestyle posing in a rustic and boho atmosphere, where families are interacting with each other more than being super posed. This will mean less “looking at the camera” shots, and more emotional connection between family members. I’ll help give you prompts into moving and playing with your kids in the photoshoot, and will work around you to get some beautiful authentic moments of you guys doing your thing. Kisses, hugs, dancing, games, picking flowers are just some of the fun things we can do to really get those memorable moments captured in your session.
Since my sessions have a rustic and relaxed style, clothing styling in all my sessions as a brand use more of the neutral, earth-toned color schemes instead of bolder or bright colors. Earthy colors in your outfits will complement the location you’re in, and create an overall softer color scheme for your photoshoot (think colors that you’ll see out in nature, as well as anything close to the skin tone). You will want to wear something that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful, and I can assist styling if you need help! This rustic style will be incorporated throughout the session in terms of the locations you choose and/or props used.
Sessions are booked Monday-Friday only, and times may vary according to your needs and seasons.
*Newborn sessions are to be booked while pregnant for best availability, looking at your due date to schedule and set with a deposit.
