About Me

Welcome to my photography blog! I’m amanda cook, a pet lover, accountant and photographer!! Yes I know, strange combination right, I like to think of it as just keeping both sides of my mind busy- the creative and the smart ! I work for a small accounting firm 2 days a week and the rest of the time I get to do what I love! 

Why do I love photography? Well because I love meeting new people and their adorable families. While I may not have kids of my own yet, I tell everyone I will be pro by the time I do. I love working with kids! Weather their grumpy, shy, hyper, joyful or ecstatic- I love capturing that perfect image that shows who they are!  To me photography isn’t just the perfect smile and the perfect pose, it’s photos that remind you of the person & the moment.

What else do you need to know about me, we’ll my dog Titan is my little pal and we are eagerly building up our agility skills! He is also the lucky subject of all my “test photos”.

I have always loved photography, I took my first photography class in grade 9. I got my first slr camera when I was in high school and soon after that I was taking my first course in professional photography. I have taken numerous classes but I find you learn the most by just getting out there and practicing. Of course google, Pinterest an online learning forums can be quite addicting and inspirational.

That’s me in a nutshell, Can’t wait to me you!
