Hey there! It’s Amanda from Gdtography and Kim from Beauty & A Bunny! We’re teaming up for an exciting offer! This is for anyone who wants to improve their confidence in front of the camera and feel better about the pictures they take. We have been creative partners-in-crime since our MySpace days and have (thankfully!) grown as a professional photographer and model duo.
Over the past few years, we’ve found ourselves taking pictures of our friends and helping them feel more confident when being photographed. This is something we truly have fun doing and we want to make new friends doing what we love!
A working pro employee by day and camera holding hipster by night (or anytime when I am free). Photography plays a huge role in my life and it has been something consistently positive. I knew I had the eye for it as soon as I got my hands on my first camera in high school. Ever since, I have gotten into the niche of city, people, and portrait photography. I love the hustle and bustle of city life, but I also appreciate those moments to pause and take in my surroundings.
Kim has been an amazing model and source of inspiration for me. Without her, I wouldn’t have been able to learn and try different things.
I’m one of those really extra people who believes fashion is art. I began modeling professionally in 2013 for runway shows, photographers, and other campaigns throughout the Midwest. My experience really helped build my self-confidence and I learned a ton from others in the industry. Modeling is something I still enjoy as a side-hustle (how millenial of me, I know). I currently work full-time as a Marketing Coordinator for a local shoe store to feed my shoe addiction and blog (inspired by my pet rabbit!) to show off my favorite outfits & styling skills. I’m looking forward to helping you find the perfect outfit and finding your best angles!
Working with Amanda has given me the chance to test my limits and challenge myself creatively. Most of my portfolio and blog photography is all done by this magical woman & her camera!

WARDROBE CONSULTATION | WHAT TO EXPECT FROM KIM
I can do these in-person or virtually! I recommend scheduling your consultation 1-2 weeks prior to your photoshoot. Once your consultation and photoshoot are booked, I’ll provide you with advice on what kind of wardrobe options will be best for your vision. Please have these options ready before our consultation. We’ll go through your options and make some magic together! I promise it’ll feel like shopping with your BFF!
PHOTOSHOOT | WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AMANDA
I am here to capture your moments, to make you laugh, and to make you have fun while feeling comfortable in the environment. From styled to candid, I do it all by using unique angles, backgrounds, and lighting that compliment you and/or the group. Natural light is used in many of my photos when it can be utilized, but if enhancements are needed, I will do those in Lightroom. When editing, I tend to keep a clean natural look to the photos with some minor changes to lighting or color. I do take requests for additional editing of your choosing. Whether it’s blogging, modeling, portraits, or events, I will make sure you’re looking your best!
PHOTOSHOOT | WHAT TO EXPECT FROM KIM
I’m basically your personal assistant/cheerleader/coach for the day! At the beginning of the shoot, I’ll give you some direction on how to stand/sit and we’ll even practice a few basic poses. There also may be a lot of corny puns and crazy dance moves to help you smile & laugh off the nerves. Throughout the shoot, I’ll make sure your clothes are perfectly in place for each shot or even powder your nose if you need me to! I’ll let you do your thing while directing you (ex: where to put your hands so you don’t look awkward). By the end of the shoot, you’ll know how to nail the infamous Tyra Banks smize.
