Hi there.

For as long as I can remember, I have spent my adulthood life falling in love over and over again with photography. Just some background info... my love for photography began at the age of 17 while photographing for the Lakewood Lancers Yearbook. I then continued my love for photo at California State University of Long Beach, where I received my Bachelors Degree is Studio Art with an emphasis in Fine Art Photography. The rest is history! :)

 1. I am a middle child 

2. I prefer rainbow sandals but if I must wear shoes its my Vans or Chucks

3. My husband is my bestfriend and we are highschool sweethearts

4. 93.5 is my #1 on my Radio

5. My main goal in life is to make sure my kids are always smiling from life adventures 

6. My favorite food in the whole wide world is TACOS.. mmmm actually now I want some!

“mandalophoto is like a dream come true! Amanda has captured memories and details in an unimaginable way for me, my husband, our extended family and even our pups. Every shoot is fun (Amanda can light up anyone's day), easy and the pictures turn out beautifully. There is never a question on who to call for the best pictures - it will always be mandalophoto!”
