I'm Amanda Kamppinen, a born and raised Midwesterner. Photography captured my heart at a young age, and it's been my career for the past 20 years.

Grand Rapids, Michigan, is where I call home, living here with my three darling children, my husband Tim, and our beloved pit-bull Zoey.


I've carved out my niche as a photographer with a keen eye for food and headshot imagery. My approach is all about leveraging the interplay of light, texture, and movement to craft images that aren't just seen, but felt. These are the kind of photos that tell a story, capture a mood, and leave a lasting impression.

I thrive on collaboration, working hand-in-hand with businesses both big and small. It's all about showcasing you and your brand in the best possible light, whether that means nailing the perfect set of headshots for your team, stirring up some mouthwatering food visuals for your blog or restaurant, or capturing the essence of your entrepreneurial journey with vibrant lifestyle shots.

Consider me an extension of your team. I'm here, ready to roll up my sleeves and dive into the creative process alongside you. Let's make some magic together and bring your vision to life in a way that resonates and engages.
