“Amanda’s talent in finding beauty and interest in everyday life and people is inspiring. Her images capture personalities and shares a love of the world around us.”   Jennifer

 

“Amanda recently photographed our daughter as part of a newborn collection and we can’t say enough good things. From the time we arrived, her friendly, calming and professional nature put us and our baby at ease and we were able to jump straight into different staged shots depending on how bub was feeling. The whole shoot ran very smoothly and her attention to detail shows in the wonderful quality of our photos. Best thing is Amanda prepares the photos in a number of formats so we could easily share them with family and friends overseas. Thank you so much Amanda and we can’t wait to book in our next shoot soon!”  Rosalie

 

“Amanda is absolutely amazing! I recently had the pleasure of having Amanda photograph my daughter at her studio for her first birthday. She also photographed my daughter’s first birthday party. From the moment I contacted Amanda she was lovely to deal with, highly professional and was always available to respond to any questions. Throughout the photoshoots, Amanda was so calm, patient and made the whole experience such a fun one for my daughter and I. Nothing was rushed and nothing was too much trouble. Amanda really goes above and beyond and always makes sure everything works in for naps with a little one. I was so surprised how quickly Amanda got our photos back to us. They were exceptional and my absolute favourite photos of my daughter so far. They capture her personality so beautifully and are absolutely amazing! Everyone has commented on them.”  Karen

“The favourite part of the wedding was that you captured such stunning, natural shots and you seemed to be here, there and everywhere taking all the photos that mattered without anyone noticing. The online gallery was sensational and available so soon after the wedding – it was amazing!”  Lauren

 

“We can’t Thankyou enough Amanda for capturing this incredibly precious time for our family. You came into our home and managed to allow us all to feel at ease whilst you took photos! You captured each member of our family and it was so special to have this done in our own home. We absolutely LOVE the photos and would highly recommend you to any future families – so worth it! Thankyou so much.”   Sami

 

“Everything was so easy and enjoyable! It didn’t feel like a photo shoot- it was so natural ! The photos are awesome and we received them very shortly after the shoot. I’ll definitely recommend Amanda for all my friends and will be using her services again! Thank you so much !”   Bojana

 

“Amanda is a brilliant photographer! Amanda captured beautiful photos of our young family once our newborn arrived.  We really enjoyed our session. It was relaxed and comfortable. Amanda was even able to charm our 2 year old!  The packages Amanda provides are fantastic. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”   Logika

 

“Booking my son in for his first birthday Cake Smash was one of the best things I’ve done! Amanda is so fun loving and easy going, we all just had a ball during the photo shoot! My baby had so much fun and the photos and slide show we received turned out amazing! It was just beautiful watching his reaction to the cake and I will cherish these memories forever! I love Amanda’s style of photography and am so grateful for the lovely job she did.”   Tennille

 

“I am so impressed with Amanda and her professionalism. Not only does she have creative ideas, the photos are amazing. She also sent them back to me edited within a really short time. Amanda has completely exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend her.”   Catherine

 

“We recently had the pleasure of doing a newborn photo shoot with Amanda. What a great experience! She was so lovely, calm and accommodating. The twins were a little unsettled during the shoot which did not phase Amanda at all. She even took one of the babies, wrapped him up and rocked him until he was calm enough to take some more shots. And the photos were amazing!!! Thanks again Amanda.”   Mary

 

“I have worked with several photographers over the years due to my line of work and I have to say, Amanda is definitely one of the best! We did a studio style shoot on my daughters first birthday and then an ‘on location’ shoot at her first birthday party. I’m so glad I did both, the photos are amazing and something I will look back on for years to come … Amanda has a soft, lovely manner that immediately puts you at ease when the camera is rolling. Our shoots were seamless, reasonably priced and best of all there are no restrictions on the photos, what ever you need it is all included. If timing permits, I will be booking Amanda in for many more of my daughter birthdays in the years ahead; she is so well priced its doable!”  Corrine

“My biggest fear was that my son wouldn’t sit still or behave for any photos. He didn’t, but Amanda was so great and just went with it. She ran, crawled and swam around after him to get the perfect shot.”   Bel

 

“Amanda has recently photographed my wedding, she was amazing! From being there at the start to the finish capturing the most special moments of our day. We have our photos back & honestly can’t pick our favourites, there is too many we love! Her photos are extremely natural & not over edited/photoshopped. She was extremely professional & we 100% recommend her for any event!”   Kady 

 

“Amanda recently came to Berry for a family weekend away to celebrate my fathers 70th and my birthday. We had family visiting from overseas, babies and toddlers in the house for the weekend, Amanda was amazing at organising ( without us realising ) to get some great family shots to commemorate a great family weekend. We all enjoyed ourselves and relaxed. Photos are great, capturing some special family moments.”   Jessica

 

“Wonderful experience with simply gorgeous moments captured. Amanda was brilliant and so helpful, she opened her home up and made us feel so welcome and accommodating of the unpredictability of a 1 year old. The mess my daughter made of her cake smash didn’t seem to phase Amanda at all. The pictures will be treasured for years, we can’t thank her enough and will be back for some more pictures in the future.”   Jenny

 

“Amanda recently photographed my mother’s 90th birthday celebration. We are more than happy with the photos; the way Amanda used the existing light and gardens for natural backgrounds really helped to bring an extra something to the photos as well as capture the happy atmosphere and love expressed throughout the party. We highly recommend Amanda to capture the true spirit of your next special event; you won’t be disappointed in the finished product or her lovely approachable manner and professionalism.”   Judi

 

“If you are wondering whether to choose Amanda to photograph your family or not, don’t hesitate. Do it! She is brilliant! We had a family photo shoot with her at North Curl Curl beach and were blown away by the photos she took. We have three teenage kids and she had fabulous suggestions on great shots to take that really showed us off at our best. I will treasure the photos forever.”   Fiona

 

“Amanda did an amazing job with a newborn shoot for our son. She captured exactly what I wanted including both natural and posed shots. She was so patient with us and our six week old. The photos were amazing and loved by all!”   Miruna

 

“If I knew it would be that easy to get family photos taken, I wouldn’t have waited 18 years! From the first time I spoke to Amanda on the phone, to the numerous emails I sent back and forth with dates and times, nothing was ever a problem for Amanda and she was happy to fit in with my busy family. The photos came back and I can actually say I don’t have a favourite, I actually love them all! Give Amanda a call today, don’t wait like I did for 18 years to get family photos taken.”   Jo

 

“We recently had a cake smash with Amanda and it was such a great experience. She welcomed us into her home and it was so relaxed and easy. She provided everything for us so all we had to do was turn up. The photos are amazing and it’s really hard to choose which ones to frame. Thanks Amanda, we look forward to more sessions with you in the future.”   Caryn

 

“Amanda has just photographed our children in a Christmas Mini-Shoot for the 3rd year running and as always we are really happy with the shots. There has been a different theme each year and it is now part of our Christmas tradition to send photos to our family. Amanda has such a calm but fun nature she really gets the best from the kids!”   Louise

 

“Great value for money! Amanda made our newborn photo shoot relaxing and fun. She had set aside the day for us as she appreciated (more so than we did) that we may arrive a little late and have to stop for a feed. Our little one cried and didn’t settle easily but Amanda was a pro. Love our photos. Recommend getting photos done in first 2 weeks when baby still sleepy newborn.”   Kerry

 

“I asked Amanda to do the photography of my daughter’s 1st birthday party, based on my friends’ recommendations and seeing the photos she shot for them. She was brilliant and I am so happy with the photos. She captured the essence of the day perfectly and I would not hesitate to use her services for future family shoots.”   Amy

 

“Amanda was absolutely amazing for my daughters first birthday cake smash. She was so relaxed and extremely patient. Although my daughter wasn’t that into the cake she was able to work around it & got the most beautiful photos. As well as a quick turn around of the photos so I was able to show them off at her birthday party. I just love love love love them & have had so many comments about how gorgeous the photos are. I cannot recommend Amanda enough – extremely talented photographer!”  Aimee

 

“We recently had a newborn and family photo shoot with Amanda. She was fantastic! So relaxed and easy to work with on the day. It helps that Amanda is a bit of a newborn and toddler whisperer, she was able to keep both our little ones calm and interested which meant beautiful pics. Thanks so much Amanda! We love our photos and will happily recommend you to others.”   Melissa

 

“Amanda was amazing with us and our Bub Harvey. We felt very welcome in her home for our Christmas photos and Harvey was smitten with Amanda. Pics look amazing. Will definitely be back in future for more family photos.”  Stacey

 

“We absolutely loved the cake smash with my twin girls. Amanda was fantastic at working with them and she really knew what she was doing to try and get great shots whilst keeping them in good spirits. She got the pictures back to us in good time and was happy to make any little Photoshop changes I asked for. Getting two 1 year olds to face a camera together is definitely an art. We will definitely be using Amanda for some more family shots in the future.”   Natasha

 

“We worked with Amanda for our newborn daughter’s photo shoot. She was lovely to work with and had the magic mum touch with our daughter and settled her to get some amazing photos. We would recommend working with Amanda for your treasured family photos as her style is very natural and we were thrilled with the finished product.”   Leila

 

“Amanda recently photographed my daughter for her first birthday and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.  She was very accommodating when I had to postpone at the last minute due to my daughter getting sick, her communication was great throughout the whole process. Amanda was also amazing with my daughter who gets quite shy around strangers. She didn’t rush her at all and bought out some toys and played with her until my daughter was comfortable to start the photo session. On top of all this the photos came out amazingly – I couldn’t be happier with them. I’ll be using Amanda for more photos in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”  Kimberley

 

“Amanda recently photographed my newborn daughter (and our entire family + pets!) at our home. Amanda is such a pleasure to work with, very professional and very, very patient. Her packages are absolutely fantastic and the photos were beautiful. Simple & natural, which is exactly what we were after. Would definitely use Amanda again.”   Rhee

“Amanda was amazing from the moment we contacted her. On the day she was warm and welcoming. Our little kiddies were happy and relaxed around her and loved her! Such a wonderful session and our photos look amazing.. within a few hours we were given a preview and the excitement levels tripled. Thank you Amanda.”   Tracy

 

“We were lucky enough to have Amanda say yes to being our birth photographer! She had taken beautiful pics of my first son throughout his life so I knew her photos would be amazing, ones that I could treasure forever. Her calm and loving nature made me feel at ease. I didn’t notice her in the birthing space, as she quietly observed, capturing the moments perfectly. Our newborn and family shoot was fun and easy! She was easy going and understanding of toddlers and babies needs/ wants and worked in with the whole family. I recommend Amanda for any type of photography work, I look at my beautiful pictures daily! Thank you.”   Bel

 

“We had such a great experience with Amanda. I contacted her very last minute to take photos for our wedding and she got back to me very quickly and was so easy to deal with. On the day she made everyone, including me and my husband who aren’t super comfortable in front of the camera, feel very at ease. The photos themselves are beautiful and we’ve had so many comments about how lovely they are.”  Sarah

 

“Thank you Amanda for our cake smash session! We had a lot of fun with it, Lucy was so comfortable with you and we couldn’t be more pleased with the images! We loved how you captured the essence of the shoot – natural, relaxed, simple yet beautiful and elegant, really bringing out the best of our cheeky little daughter. We highly recommend Amanda and can’t thank you enough!”   Melanie

 

“Amanda recently photographed my Grandfather’s 95th birthday celebration and it was excellent. Amanda’s service and professionalism was exceptional and she provided us with many beautiful photos to remember the special day.”   Shevaun

 

“Amanda did photos for our boys 1st Birthday Cake Smash. She is so super talented and couldn’t speak highly enough of her and the photos that she took. 
Amanda was more than willing to work with me to get the photos edited and back to me in less than a week so we could have them before his birthday. Will definitely be going back any chance we get! Thanks Amanda!”   Rachael

 

“Amanda has photographed my kids over the past few years as part of her Christmas mini sessions! She is naturally wonderful with children so instantly my kids were at ease. The backdrop, props & Christmas music created a wonderful mood which I believe was key to getting my kids to stay still (and smile)! Not to mention Amanda’s excellent photography skills which captured some gorgeous moments I will treasure always! Thank you Amanda….. we thoroughly recommend you and look forward to seeing you again next year!”   Christina

 

“Recently worked with Amanda, she is engaging and puts you at ease immediately. She is excellent with her craft skilfully capturing relaxed shots for me. Loved my pics and appreciated her super quick completion and preparation of my pics. I value her skill and the way she captured me to highlight warmth and connection for my website. Highly recommend Amanda for value and professionalism, with warmth and ability to put you at ease. Will be working with her again for both business and some family shots.”  Cindi

 

“I am a celebrant and worked with Amanda at a home wedding, she was slick, and I hardly noticed her taking photos during the ceremony. This to me is very important that the photographer gets the shots without getting in the way of the special moments of the ceremony. I would highly recommend Amanda to take your photos, the results she came up with were beautiful, natural and fun. She was also able to give the couple lovely printed photo cards which they used as thank-you cards. The couple received their USB of the photos very quickly.”   Cate

 

“Beautiful photos, wonderful patience (we have twins) and great value. So important to capture these magic early moments!”   Danny

 

“Once I explained to Amanda the circumstances behind our family photo shoot she totally got it. I now have photos of my family that are beautiful. Thank you Amanda.”   Nikki

 

“Highly recommend Amanda! She shot our yearly family xmas pics where we feature our shots on a xmas card. We were so happy with the results. She was warm, welcoming, efficient and so great with the kids. No doubt we will be back again next year – thank you!”  Sarah

Amanda Naylor Photography family car-1

“Our first ever photo shoot, prompted by the sale of our beloved family car and Amanda couldn’t have made it more relaxed, fun and enjoyable. Despite a hot day, the evening weather turned in our favour, as did the light (assume Amanda arranged this too) and the results are amazing and precious memories are preserved forever. Thank you Amanda so much. You are amazing.”   Lucy

 

“Amanda is the official photographer of the Manly Soft Sand Classic and every year she captures this community event with an extraordinary eye for detail. Her images reflect the spirit and sporting achievement of the entire field as she focuses her lens on every runner. Her photographs actually make you want to run it and that says a lot as it’s a gruelling 21km on sand! Amanda is extremely professional and prompt with her work and every year she produces amazing memories of race day that runners can keep forever.”  Hilary

 

“Amanda was fabulous, her calmness, patience and natural talent with children makes it easier as a parent not only to capture those precious moments but enjoy it on the day. I highly recommend Amanda.”   Berna

 

“We recently participated in one of Amanda’s Mini Christmas Kids Photography sessions. The photos of our 6 month old and 2 year old are fantastic. We love, love, love them! We hadn’t met Amanda before and from the minute we walked in the door she made us all feel so comfortable – the kids loved the toy box. Amanda turned around the photos so quickly and was also quick to get back to my initial emails. We will be engaging Amanda again for some family photos and have recommended her to friends. Overall an easy process, value for money and great quality photos.”   Therese

 

“Amanda was so amazing, I could not recommend her enough. Her skills and experience meant our cake smash with 10 little one year olds was so much fun and the parents were all super relaxed. The photos are better than I could have imagined too and she is really great value for money too. I can’t wait to have a reason to book her again. Thank you Amanda x”   Katy

“My favourite part was the kids running after a ball. They had a great time and weren’t even aware that they were part of a photo shoot. The kids look natural and in their element in the photos.”

“My 16 month old daughter recently had a Christmas mini shoot with Amanda. This year was much harder then last year when she wouldn’t sit or stand still. Amanda came up with lots of ideas for us to continue with the shoot. We got some amazing photos of our lil girl. Highly recommend and will be definitely be using Amanda for our next photo session.”   Alison

“Amanda is excellent. She is very easy going, relaxed and unhurried, but very professional. Have a look at her Blog pages on her website, or her Facebook page, as that gives you a really good idea of the broad range of photos she takes. This is important as other photographers just have a few galleries on their website to view.”   Jen

 

“Amanda has photographed our kids twice and we couldn’t have been happier with her beautiful work.Amanda is also so patient with kids and gets the best out of them. Highly recommend.”  Gabrielle

“My favourite part was the unique interaction Amanda had with my kids and understanding my son’s needs, being very shy and embarrassed in front of the camera.”   Kemily

“You managed to get around and capture all the guests at my 50th party without being intrusive. I never had to worry that I would not have a record of the occasion. My favourite part was at the end when you got key friendship groups together for team shots.”   Richard

 

_AUS2412

“I enjoyed the in-house studio session. I think one of the reasons you hire a photographer is to come away with professional looking photos, as we don’t have access to professional backdrops and lighting when we are taking everyday photos with our iPhones.”   Jen

“I loved everything from start to finish and thought it flowed so nicely. You just simply arrived and knew exactly where and what to do! No fluffing around”   Danielle

 

Amanda Naylor Photography reviews 2016-1

“I would recommend Amanda to my friends in a heartbeat. She provided an excellent setting for the shoot with well thought about props and was very sensitive towards the timing due to my son’s nap times. The whole session was so fun all thanks to Amanda’s warm and personable nature. Lastly, the photographs we received, were fantastic! We could not be any happier. We are so thankful to Amanda.”   Nichola

Amanda Naylor Photography reviews 2016-2

“My biggest fear was my daughter would misbehave & you may get annoyed that she wasn’t co-operating. That totally did not happen-she did get upset a little but you were so warm and welcoming and made me and Isabella feel at ease that she calmed down quickly and we were able to continue. You didn’t push her when she’d had enough, just went with the flow which made this whole experience that much more fun and special.”   Leanne
