Capturing Life's Most Awesome Moments


"Around here however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening
new doors and doing new things..and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths" ~Walt Disney

Why I do What I Do
I am moved by all the moments I capture for people through my photography. A husband and wife's first kiss, a baby being born, families enjoying time together…these beautiful wonderful milestones are what my job is all about. I want to tell your story and have it all exist in awesome moments captured by my photography.
Who I Shoot
I am often asked what genre I shoot the most of and honestly that is hard to say. I shoot everything from weddings, families, events to beautiful little babies. And honestly I love them all.
Mini Sessions

I will have posted Mini Session dates (usually once in the Spring and once in the Fall) those will be only times you can book a mini session. I do not offer mini's except for selected dates or if you have purchased one through a package.

Graphic Design
While I do a degree in Graphic Design and love graphic design but due to my demanding schedule with photography I am not currently taking on any graphic design clients.
Turnaround Time

Family, Children, Newborn, Seniors please allow 4-8 weeks for your session to be complete.

Weddings please allow 8-14 weeks for your wedding to be complete.

These times are Not set in stone, I could be done sooner. Insistent emailing doesn't get your portraits done any faster

We meet up, we have fun, I take photos and make you look awesome! I edit the photos and give you great memories that last a lifetime!

I reserve the right to use any and all pictures to advertise, network and add to my portfolio unless a copyright has been purchased, or you can discuss the situation with me.

I offer a print release only. This is intended for private use and your images may not be used for any other purpose with out permission. You may purchase complete copyrights to your session upon request.

If you receive your photos and would like to post some on Facebook, you MUST credit myself or my business! Or you can ask me to post them including my logo.

I am very happy with all my clients I appreciate being part of something special with you, with that being said I do realize however that there are instances when I won't and probably can't please someone. Understand that I am more than happy to make it right for a customer and resolve any issues. However, I do not give refunds of any kind, I will work with you to resolve any issues. Any threatening or harassing communications or any verbal abuse will not be tolerated. I am one person working very hard at giving you the best images possible, but I have more than one client and a family that needs me. I will give you a time frame for when your photos will be done, and please allow any extra time during super busy seasons. I assure you you will be very happy with all images you receive.

Photography: I do not charge session fees or print minimums. You are not forced to print through me, although in the future it will be an option if you so choose. I charge a flat rate and provide you with an online gallery full of your edited high quality images and the rights for Printing.

I do not currently have a studio, I have a studio that I may rent from time to time, be on the lookout for those dates, always posted to my Facebook page. So if you would like a session we need to find a location for the shoot either at your home, outdoors or another location of your choosing.

All Sessions require a NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT, this secures your session spot! Also I totally understand that life happens to everyone, if something comes up contact me to reschedule.


I work on planning the session with you to suit your needs. I find a location and prepare props if needed for the session.
The session is here! Let's party! Sometimes parents can get stressed but I guarantee we will walk away feeling good and getting shots!
I go through the tons of photos I have taken to give you the best image from every pose making sure you have well rounded gallery and make your pics look great!
I provide you with an online gallery that is free for 30 days, (you have the option to purchase) And then I give you your cd with your Fab images!

My name is Amanda Monday. Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

Born in Omaha Nebraska, moved to Iowa City when I was little tike and have lived here ever since. After high school I got a job at a preschool and thought teaching preschool was exactly what I wanted to do. After a number of years and an Early Childhood Education degree later I became an Assistant Director at a Preschool. But my life changed when I quit by job to go back to school full time for Graphic Design. (Best thing I have Ever done!) While back in college I found photography. Of course having two boys made me enjoy it even more. My dad bought me my first dslr and the rest is history! I am constantly growing, learning and Loving my business.

Documenting life is such an important thing for me. And I just love taking photos, whether it's my iphone or film camera or polaroid or my canon I am always snapping something. I try to find the beauty in Everything. Thank you for following along!
