“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 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

 

“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 1st 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 

 

“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 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

 

“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 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

 

“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

“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

“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.”

“Amanda was absolutely brilliant! So dedicated and capable plus a pleasure to deal with. You must use her. Give her a go, you won’t be disappointed.”  Danielle

“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

“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

“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
