the Hinders | Amarillo Family Photographer

i can remember sitting in amanda’s living room before her engagement session like it was yesterday.

“maaaaaaaaaaaaathew!”  she sang from the back room… it was cute. and endearing.

and that was probably the first time i declared my secret love/infatuation/obsession with amanda.

in the past four years, i have seen amanda and matthew for family photos, wedding days, just cause… and everything in between. My fascination with this beautiful family is unmatched, and i get giddy at each meeting with them. These three, and their families, are truly some of the most loving people i have ever met… and i, for one, am glad that the scales tip in my favor and i am able to capture memories and milestones for them.

amelia…. you little heart thiefamanda has a most beautiful voice. even when she sings the “itsy bitsy spider” on the side of the street while real estate conversations are happening right behind her. but in this exact moment… i was more captivated by watching amanda in this new role as a mother. and how effortless and beautiful she makes it.this should wallpaper a wall in your home. just saying.matthew and amanda… and little millie ray…. photographing you the last four years. you will never know what it means to me. what it does for my heart. how it inspires. and motivates me. how i walk away feeling refreshed, energized, loved and happy again. you are the world’s greatest people…. and i am humbled to know you!

India | Amarillo Newborn Photography

one of the best feelings in the world for me, is to have my wedding clients return to me for photos of their babies. When Ben and Amanda asked me to photograph their family again when their daughter India arrived, i felt so honored to pause this very special time in their lives and interpret it in photos.

Kyndall is already an amazing big sister. she was so eager to hold her baby and beamed the entire time.sweet baby girl India. what pure perfection.Ben, Amanda, Kyndall and India… your memories are so precious to me. i am so honored to be alongside you as you united yourselves to each other and again now that this precious little girl has extended your family. you are all such treasures and i am thankful for each and every time i get to photograph you!

be infinitely blessed
