Client Praise

Amanda is a wonderful and talented photographer to work with! Our newborn baby photo session was one of the most pleasant photography sessions I’ve ever had. She makes the entire experience feel like you’re working with a friend! Her studio is meticulously organized and filled with the cutest baby props and clothing. She works with you to plan everything ahead of time, so she can take as many pictures as possible! There is so much attention to detail, it shows how passionate Amanda is about what she does!

We just received our album and we can’t wait to share it with our friends and family! If you’re considering a photo shoot for your little one, you won’t regret choosing It’s Sunny in Seattle!

We had our newborn baby photo session with Amanda, everything was smooth and perfect from the first email. She was able to fit us in on day 6 for baby, made the experience very memorable even when my first child was resisting taking pictures. She managed to warm him up and give us the great family memories we wanted. Seeing the pictures 2 weeks later had me so emotional as i couldn’t believe this was really us and not a model family on Pinterest! I definitely recommend her to anyone in the Seattle area and we will be coming back.

Amanda is a fantastic photographer! It was a pleasure working with her on my son’s 3 month milestone photoshoot. She has a way with babies and it’s amazing how she got my baby to sit through the sessions. The end product was just too good. She managed to capture some precious moments and I can’t be more satisfied! Her work is of superior quality and I highly recommend her and her work. I hope to work with her in the future too.

Amanda is a phenomenal photographer and does a terrific job. Maternity and Newborn Photography is her passion and it shows in every single photo she takes. We worked with her for our first and second child (both maternity and newborn) and have been extremely pleased with the results. It’s Sunny in Seattle Photography is the Best Newborn Photographer in Seattle. I would highly recommend her.

My wife and I went to Amanda for the 1st year photo for our baby boy. We heard good things about Amanda from friends already, so we actually had high expectations for Amanda before we met her. I have to say that our experience with Amanda absolutely exceeded that high expectation!

During the session, Amanda was really welcoming, professional, and showed a LOT of patience with our 1-year-old (I believe every parent knows how out of control they can be). More importantly, we totally felt her efforts on accommodating to our needs. From my past experience, it’s really common that customers and photographers share different opinions on many many details. The great thing about Amanda is that she showed the same patience with our 1-year-old to us and explained everything to us, and she was willing to work with us on adjusting things to our personal preference. I am really happy we did it that way, we LOVE the final pictures since they fit our personal preference but look totally PRO! As an evidence of how much we love the final photos, we upgraded our package to the 15-photo one to the 40-photo one, which was totally out of our budget, but we just loved her work too much.

We definitely recommend Amanda to those seeking great photographers for preserving your precious memories with loved ones. We had an exceptional experience full of joy and warmth with her, and most importantly we are extremely satisfied with the results! Good photographers are rare, those ones easy to work with are ever rarer, Amanda is definitely on the top of our list!

I had a newborn photography session with Amanda at her Issaquah Sammamish studio, and she is just so fun and amazing to work with. She truly is talented and loves what she does. It shows in her personality, and her work. She is very good about talking beforehand, preparing you, and giving you all the information you need! (But yet I still managed to come unprepared) She really takes matters into her own hands and does what’s best for you and your baby, so you can just sit back and relax! And not to mention she had the best price points in the Seattle area. I cannot express how HAPPY and GRATEFUL I am for everything she’s done. I will forever cherish these wonderful photos of my first baby, they will last a lifetime! Thank you Amanda!

We had a maternity photo session with Amanda and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. Not only did our photos turn out amazing ( I am still getting messages from friends and family and stopped in the halls at work with people raving about how great they look), but Amanda was absolutely delightful to work with. We met a couple of weeks before the photo session at her home studio, which is gorgeous btw, and were able to talk about style and location. She also has tons of maternity dresses that you can try on and borrow for the sessions and I was able to find a stunning red dress that I fell in love with. The whole process was very simple and Amanda made me feel so comfortable from the beginning. On the day of our photo session Amanda was right on time and very organized. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Out of all the photos my husband and I have together, our maternity ones are by far my favorite!!! Thank you so much Amanda!

Amanda was absolutely fantastic! I had a newborn photo session and a maternity photo session with her, and both were wonderful!! These were performed at her Sammamish Issaquah Studio and I was happy to drive out from Seattle as I specifically wanted to work with Amanda. She is extremely personable and pleasant to work with and her work is so beautiful, I know I will cherish these photos for years. I can not recommend It’s Sunny in Seattle Photography enough! The maternity dresses she offers to her clients are perfect and I was happy I didn’t have to purchase something extra that I wouldn’t be able to wear often. For the newborn photos, she has so many adorable props, set-ups and super cute outfits, I was blown away. I am beyond grateful that we came across her information and am so fortunate for this wonderful experience!

I told her my idea of creating the lasting classic gallery of images which requires lots of setting and changing props. I couldn’t believe she pulled it off creating a very special piece of my recent passed away dog. Everything about the photo session was smooth and easy process. She offered her Signature Painted with Sunshine art pieces. Of course, they all were so phenomenal that we couldn’t be happier to purchase.

– MAY

We had an amazing experience with Amanda. She runs the session really well from start to finish and tells you exactly what she needs from you. The photos turned out amazing and we recommend her for anyone who wants to capture this special moment.

– ANDREA

I talked to 5+ photographers about newborn staged photos of my son until i found Amanda. She is the sweetest person, was so easy to talk to, and was so good at managing my son (he was a little fussy). I had to change our day because of our pediatrician appointment and she was very flexible, understanding and accomodating and got us in the next day. The photos turned out AMAZING, i couldn’t choose the best ones cause i loved them all and ended up buying all of them. Her home studio is very cute and cozy. I will definitely go back to her with my son and future babies.

I’m so glad I found Amanda for our new born session! She is extremely talented and made this mama very happy! Our photos turned out so beautiful, I’m glad I chose to do this and have these memories forever! Highly recommend!! The whole experience was amazing and comfortable.

– MIKAILA

Amanda is a highly talented professional photographer. She took great care of our new born during the session, patiently waiting for the right moments to capture. Love her studio set up and props used. She’s very detail oriented and had an amazing overall experience. The pictures she took are priceless! Highly recommend her if anyone is looking for newborn photography.

– PAVAN

This is the second newborn baby photo session that we have with Amanda at the Sammamish Issaquah Studio, and again we loved all the photos! She is amazing and so easy to work with! I highly recommend her !

– AMIR

We absolutely loved our newborn photos! Amanda is an awesome photographer, we really enjoyed working with her! We were very impressed with the quality of the photos and how easy to work with she was. She is flexible with her photo shoots, which, with a newborn baby is what you need. She really takes her time with the whole shoot, and each individual photo. I highly recommend It’s Sunny in Seattle Photography!!

– ANNIE

I can’t begin to describe the amazingness that is Amanda’s work!!! Leading up to our newborn session, Amanda and I exchanged many emails so that she could get a feel for what we wanted and our style. The photo session itself was very relaxing and it was so exciting to see Amanda do her work. When we reviewed the final prints, Amanda took the time to ask what we liked and didn’t like about certain images and when we finally got the prints, I was blown away at how BEAUTIFUL they turned out. I can’t wait to have Amanda take our daughter’s one year photos! If we ever have more children (which honestly, Amanda’s work is so amazing that it makes me want to have more babies just so that we can hire Amanda again), we will absolutely use Amanda again! LOVE LOVE LOVE her work!!!!

– KATJANA

Amanda has magic hands, both for handling our twins and taking mind-blowing pictures. As a twin parent, it’s a hard task to keep your babies calm, especially both at the same time. During our session the babies spent 4 hours in peace resulting in some amazing pictures.

Preparation – Amanda has been super engaged from the get-go. From the first phone call to her detailed preparation email guiding you about every second of the logistics for the picture day is amazing.

Studio – Clean, comfortable and equipped with an exhaustive and exquisite collection of baby outfits and props.

Pictures – Sharp, well edited and great timing for each click. We opted for a 40 picture package and had a very hard time cutting down. It is really hard with the quality work she produces!

Professionalism – She is super flexible and will accommodate your requests, anything to make the parent happy. We were able to request props of our liking, poses, include parents, in-laws, get the time and day we want. To top it all she is prepared, thoroughly! At no point did we feel rushed, the safety of the babies and keeping them comfortable was her number 1 priority.

If you are anywhere in the Seattle vicinity, she should be your only option!

Amanda is amazing! I am SO happy with our little man’s 6 month milestone photo session. Amanda was easy to communicate with, so friendly and warm, and great with our baby! He can be shy with new people, but he was already smiling at her as soon as we walked in to her studio. He was instantly comfortable with her and it shows in the photos! She captured our baby and his personality perfectly, and we will always treasure the images. We are so grateful to Amanda for capturing this time in his and our lives!

– TINA

Amanda is patient, professional and kind! She squeezed us in last minute for a newborn session during the height of the holiday season. Despite an amazing newborn-friendly environment, my sweet baby girl cried the entire session. I was so worried the pictures wouldn’t turn out. I came back to view them and was blown away at how perfect and angelic the shots of my family were! I actually shed a few tears during the viewing. After my viewing Amanda turned around and got them edited ahead of schedule. She is really wonderful to work with! Highly recommend!!

– MARION

Amanda is amazing! Seriously took the most amazing photo of my baby girl. Loved her communication, professionalism, and positive energy throughout the whole process. Looking to utilize services for future family photo.

We booked a session assuming our baby was coming on time. I was overdue by two weeks and was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to get in for a session. However, that was not the case. Amanda was so supportive and checked in to make sure everything was okay. Her communication was great and her willingness to reschedule on short notice was even more helpful to us.

During our shoot, as new parents we were able to chill out and take a nap while Amanda did her baby whisper thing. The results were amazing, with a quick turnaround.
