    What We Do

    We have structured our signature experience very intentionally. Everything we offer and recommend is a strategic part of an overall experience that leads to what our amazing clients ultimately desire: genuine, timeless and purposeful images. Our most intentional aspects of this Signature Experience include: 4 Sessions per year, Personal Styling and Image Implementation.



    You're stronger than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your super power to the next level. You just want and need to outsource the 'unfun' stuff!

    Our philosophy begins and ends with loving on our clients by creating an experience. We don’t believe in snapping pictures and delivering a gallery. It goes well beyond photographs for us. Amanda Richardson Photography is built on relationships. We would never claim to be a one-stop-shop for just anyone interested in having their picture taken. Instead, we take pride in building our education to serve a special kind of clientele.

    your in the right place!

    “Amanda is a delight to work with! You can tell she really cares about every detail and really gets to know your culinary brand before taking photos. She is so fun and spunky. My team and I had a blast shooting with her and were really happy with the end result.”   Fort Worth, TX

    I'm nervous BUT
    lets CHAT about the next step!


    But what you may not realize is that you need a great experience with your photographer more than anything! That is exactly what we promise to give you. Over and over and over again, our clients rave about their experience almost more than their images! Why? Because in order to get those natural, genuine portraits that truly capture who you are, you have to feel comfortable with the person taking them. The way you feel while you are having your pictures taken heavily influences how you feel when you see yourself in the final images. I can honestly say it is 100% possible to love how you look in your images if you feel comfortable while having them taken! Creating comfortable, joyful and genuine client experiences is what we specialize in and we are excited to share more about what the Signature Experience includes!

    YES! It really works!



    "When I changed my profile pic to one you took, I have 250+ views and a boatload of engagement - Thank You!"



    "Amanda is so worth it! She listens to you and your vision of your brand, and if you are not sure what that is yet, she can also help you solidify your dream and make it a reality! I have worked with Amanda on two different shoots and will be bringing her along on multiple other events! Having a great photo library of your work is imperative!! And by the way this is completely unsolicited ... I just saw her post and wanted to chime in! Instagram Sept 2, 2021



    “I love these! Thank you again so much for just such a wonderful experience from start to finish. Personally, I just feel so lucky to have met you!”

    NEXT, it is all about you! We dig deep after you are booked with a lengthy branding questionnaire and then a 60-minute Shoot List Planning call where we create a detailed shoot list for your shoot so you are fully prepared. As a business owner, you are likely the face of your business and we want to tell the story of who you are and what you do in images. There is a time and a place to put you in a business suit and heels, but if that is not how you show up to client meetings, then we are going lean into that look for you!


    LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! I think it is really important to offer you variety, after all, we are setting you apart from your competition and you can’t do that if you are sitting in the same chair in every image! Just my personal opinion 😉​

    Any of my Branding Sessions I pre-select and scout each location to determined it is the perfect fit for my clients. For those of you who know me, you know I’m picky! This means there are several options in each spot for different looks and scenes, I am insistent on giving you a unique style.


    YOUR UNIQUE BRAND - From Bakers and Caterers to Business Coaches and Event Planners everyone has branded material and colors and I will capture it all in unique and exciting ways!

    Keep in mind we are going to “stage” everything, so if you want to “frost” a cake or even someone to sit in as your client, you will be surprised how much we can accomplish.


    THE DETAILS can easily be overlooked during a photoshoot. Actually the first thing I am going to ask you about on our call are your ‘details’ which will also be your props during our shoot. Details are anything from your branding materials to your computer and iPhone, especially things that include your brand colors. You will even need to think about this for a studio shoot, but don’t worry, you will get a whole list of ideas of what to bring and what to expect.

    Feel free to email me directly any time with questions!



    Yes, professional photography is an investment BUT not only do I take your picture, that's a given! I also give you the tools and coaching on how to PURPOSEFULLY use your images to make an impact with your audience! 
    As you stand out more, you book more, when you book more, well, you make more $$$

    How will these photos help me make more money?

    Absolutely. But, I will also give you my opinion if I feel it is the best option for you. Depending on the event, there may be a professional photographer onsite, other events may not be the best way to build your brand, I want you to maximize our time together during these sessions!

    Can I use these sessions for an event?

    I suggest 2-3 outfit changes. But if you are going for more than that, I would suggest wearing layers. For example, if you are a Chef, I suggest wearing your Chef coat first with a neutral top on underneath that we can also use. These suggestions are outlined in more detail after you book your session. 

    How many outfit changes do I get during the shoot?

    LIGHT! Whatever we do, I will pick places with lots of natural light! I am a natural light photographer, but also am skilled with artificial lighting if needed. We will go into detail on locations and what will resonate best with your brand.

    How do you decide on the locations?

    Yes, it actually is! In order for me to fully understand you and your brand it is imperative that we talk through your dreams and goals for the year. We will craft your brand message and likely talk about how we can market upcoming campaigns.

    Is the pre-shoot planning session required?

    Consistency is the key to a strong online brand. Your headshots will only take you so far. Your ideal clients want to get to know the authentic you. Offering impactful images that show who you are and the story of your brand will grow your audience and build a quality online brand.

    How will this improve my online presence?

    If YOU're still on the fence...

    After a decade of serving the Charlotte, North Carolina community, Chef Lisa Brooks is growing by leaps and bounds, stepping outside the kitchen and into her role as Chief Executive Officer of Heart and Soul Personal Chef Services.

    If you are a Personal Chef and you wonder if it’s possible to carry the title of C.E.O. Lisa is here to tell you it is! Her passion for southern cuisine ignited her culinary journey, but perseverance and grand vision has created a space for these passions to take on a life of their own.

    Okay, I took sooooo many pictures while I was in Texas it actually crashed my computer at one point 😉 That is going to be my new bar for excellence, I need to get so many pictures that my computer goes into overload! Well, maybe not, as it is, I need a new one lol

    I will warn you, there will be a couple of articles about this trip because it was so amazing and I met so many wonderful people along the way, I just can’t fit it all into one!

    I am head over heels for Chef Keisha! I had the pleasure of getting to know her through another client and was so excited for this photoshoot! Keisha was the first to jump on the Mini Branding Sessions when they were released and then we extended it a bit to fit in some food shots as well!
    Keisha’s business is in full bloom right now, she is in the midst of building a new website to offer her gourmet dishes while also learning new and advanced techniques and business practices under Executive Chef Lisa Brooks!

    Chef Monica Thomas of Tailored Taste took some time to sit down with me and chat about how things have been going in her business since Covid began, how she has made some pivots, what is in store for the future and of course where she got her inspiration for the Preserved Lemon Bucatini recipe she has been so generous to share with us for the the month of June!

    I cherish the work I do with my clients. My style of photography is editorial meaning my entire purpose is to tell your story. I won't lie, it takes some work on your end too, but by the time you reach this stage of business, you are ready and excited to jump, dig deep and show the world what you are made of (even if you are hesitant to get in front of the camera)!

    One of the best parts of what I do is coming TO YOU! I travel the country to capture you in your environment. Not only is this the best way to show off what you do and who you do it for, but it gives you a sense of comfort and makes all the images more natural and relaxed. 

    Enjoy the gallery scroll, I can't wait to get to know you in this same way!
