Client Praise

Amanda was amazing! She made sure that all the details of the newborn photo shoot was taken care of so that I didn’t have to worry or plan anything. She was sooo incredibly good with soothing and caring for my newborn during the photo shoot that I was even able to take an hour nap! She is definitely a baby whisperer. Aside from her incredible nurturing skills, her photos were jaw dropping amazing! The way she captured my baby in the photos felt super natural and she looked so peaceful and in her element. The colors and props she used complimented her so well! I’ve received so many compliments on my photos already! I’ve seen many newborn photos, and one thing that separates Amanda’s newborn photos from others is the artistic element she adds to her work. I’m absolutely in love with the photos!!


I wish I could give a thousand stars! Amanda, I am giving you and your talent all stars in the Universe! You are an amazing person, very talented artist and I am amazed by your optimism and approach to life! Hugs from me and baby Feliks! P.S.: I did 3 photoshoots with Amanda: maternity in studio and nature, and newborn shoot. Pictures are stunning!


We had our newborn baby photo session with Amanda, everything was smooth and perfect from the first email. She was able to fit us in on day 6 for baby, made the experience very memorable even when my first child was resisting taking pictures. She managed to warm him up and give us the great family memories we wanted. Seeing the pictures 2 weeks later had me so emotional as i couldn’t believe this was really us and not a model family on Pinterest! I definitely recommend her to anyone in the Boise area and we will be coming back.


I can’t begin to describe the amazingness that is Amanda’s work!!! Leading up to our newborn session, Amanda and I exchanged many emails so that she could get a feel for what we wanted and our style. The photo session itself was very relaxing and it was so exciting to see Amanda do her work. When we reviewed the final prints, Amanda took the time to ask what we liked and didn’t like about certain images and when we finally got the prints, I was blown away at how BEAUTIFUL they turned out. I can’t wait to have Amanda take our daughter’s one year photos! If we ever have more children (which honestly, Amanda’s work is so amazing that it makes me want to have more babies just so that we can hire Amanda again), we will absolutely use Amanda again! LOVE LOVE LOVE her work!!!!


Amanda is amazing! As first time parents we couldn’t have asked for a better person to photograph our son and capture memories for us. Our son decided to make his appearance early at 36 weeks and Amanda was awesome at working with her schedule in order to fit us in during her preferred window. She provided so much detail about what to expect and how the session would go that by the time we arrived there were no surprises and we felt right at home. I still can’t believe how she was able to position him and keep him happy and still for a couple hours in order to get such great photos. Her years of experience photographing newborns was evident and we weren’t surprised to see how amazing the photos turned out when we received our gallery. The hardest part remains choosing which of the photos to use for announcements and prints because there are so many great ones to choose from! We really appreciated the personal touches she added, surprising us by including baseball themes and puppy stuffed animals as we talked and described all of our interests and our two dogs at home. She went above and beyond what we could have asked for and we will definitely be going back with any birthdays or future newborns down the road!


My wife and I went to Amanda for the 1st year photo for our baby boy. We heard good things about Amanda from friends already, so we actually had high expectations for Amanda before we met her. I have to say that our experience with Amanda absolutely exceeded that high expectation!

During the session, Amanda was really welcoming, professional, and showed a LOT of patience with our 1-year-old (I believe every parent knows how out of control they can be). More importantly, we totally felt her efforts on accommodating to our needs. From my past experience, it’s really common that customers and photographers share different opinions on many many details. The great thing about Amanda is that she showed the same patience with our 1-year-old to us and explained everything to us, and she was willing to work with us on adjusting things to our personal preference. I am really happy we did it that way, we LOVE the final pictures since they fit our personal preference but look totally PRO! As an evidence of how much we love the final photos, we upgraded our package to the 15-photo one to the 40-photo one, which was totally out of our budget, but we just loved her work too much.

We definitely recommend Amanda to those seeking great photographers for preserving your precious memories with loved ones. We had an exceptional experience full of joy and warmth with her, and most importantly we are extremely satisfied with the results! Good photographers are rare, those ones easy to work with are ever rarer, Amanda is definitely on the top of our list!


We loved working with Amanda for both our maternity and newborn photos! She was incredibly responsive and walked us through the entire process. For both photo shoots, she has everything laid out clearly and we could mostly just show up. Especially for the maternity photos, it was so nice to not have to attempt to order a dress and make that work. During Covid, Amanda had great safety protocols in place. So we felt very safe!

I would highly recommend for your maternity and newborn photos! You’ll have a relaxed, calm experience and get incredible photos!


I’m so glad I found Amanda for our new born session! She is extremely talented and made this mama very happy! Our photos turned out so beautiful, I’m glad I chose to do this and have these memories forever! Highly recommend!! The whole experience was amazing and comfortable.


Amanda is a gem! Not only she provides excellent quality photos and props and make you look so wonderful in pictures, she also makes you feel so comfortable as a mom who just went through the birthing and who might still have aches. She offered me water, coffee and comfortable lounge chair while I wait during newborn session with ability to snooze if I chose so. Amanda is so passionate and enthusiastic in what she does, both my husband and I admire people who excel in what they do with love ! Thank you Amanda.


Amanda is a wonderful and talented photographer to work with! Our newborn baby photo session was one of the most pleasant photography sessions I’ve ever had. She makes the entire experience feel like you’re working with a friend! Her studio is meticulously organized and filled with the cutest baby props and clothing. She works with you to plan everything ahead of time, so she can take as many pictures as possible! There is so much attention to detail, it shows how passionate Amanda is about what she does! We just received our album and we can’t wait to share it with our friends and family! If you’re considering a photo shoot for your little one, you won’t regret choosing It’s Sunny in Boise!


I cannot recommend Amanda at ‘It’s Sunny in Boise Photography’ enough. I had a maternity photo shoot whilst pregnant and then a Newborn Baby Photo Session after my little one had arrived. Not only are the photos amazing and memories I will treasure forever, but Amanda is so kind and welcoming – she manages to make you feel like you’ve known her forever after just a few minutes. My husband absolutely hates having his photo taken and I dragged him along to the sessions under protest and Amanda even managed to get him onboard and capture some great shots (even a few of him smiling which is no mean feat if you know my husband!!) The studio in Boise is also amazing and like a little Aladdin’s cave full of gorgeous props and backdrops. I can’t thank Amanda enough and will definitely be back in a years time for more family pictures to capture our little one’s first birthday.


This review is way long overdue. Life has been quite overwhelming as a new mom of twins to say the least, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Amanda is warm and friendly, so easy to talk to and really made our whole experience memorable. She provided us with clear and detailed newborn session prep guide from the start, which shows that she’s a professional and has been doing this for a while. She’s very accommodating, since the twins arrived earlier than expected. And once we actually arrived at her studio all I can say was WOW! Wall to wall of beautiful newborn clothes, costumes, wraps, backgrounds and props. It was a sight to see. I also love that she has a little cozy nook for the mama’s where we can nurse, rest and maybe snooze a little during the session. She truly is a baby whisperer, I don’t think my Littles made any fuss. They were so comfortable in the warm studio and slept through all the costume changes. We are so so grateful to have worked with Amanda! Every single one of our photos came out so beautiful and she has given us a gift that will last us a lifetime. We will treasure these moments forever! Thank you so much again, Amanda! You are truly amazing at what you do!!

Amanda has magic hands, both for handling our twins and taking mind-blowing pictures. As a twin parent, it’s a hard task to keep your babies calm, especially both at the same time. During our session the babies spent 4 hours in peace resulting in some amazing pictures.

Preparation – Amanda has been super engaged from the get-go. From the first phone call to her detailed preparation email guiding you about every second of the logistics for the picture day is amazing.

Studio – Clean, comfortable and equipped with an exhaustive and exquisite collection of baby outfits and props.

Professionalism – She is super flexible and will accommodate your requests, anything to make the parent happy. We were able to request props of our liking, poses, include parents, in-laws, get the time and day we want. To top it all she is prepared, thoroughly! At no point did we feel rushed, the safety of the babies and keeping them comfortable was her number 1 priority.

If you are anywhere in the Boise vicinity, she should be your only option!

I told her my idea of creating the lasting classic gallery of images which requires lots of setting and changing props. I couldn’t believe she pulled it off creating a very special piece of my recent passed away dog. Everything about the photo session was smooth and easy process. She offered her Signature Painted with Sunshine art pieces. Of course, they all were so phenomenal that we couldn’t be happier to purchase.


Amanda is patient, professional and kind! She squeezed us in last minute for a newborn session during the height of the holiday season. Despite an amazing newborn-friendly environment, my sweet baby girl cried the entire session. I was so worried the pictures wouldn’t turn out. I came back to view them and was blown away at how perfect and angelic the shots of my family were! I actually shed a few tears during the viewing. After my viewing Amanda turned around and got them edited ahead of schedule. She is really wonderful to work with! Highly recommend!!


I talked to 5+ photographers about newborn staged photos of my son until I found Amanda. She is the sweetest person, was so easy to talk to, and was so good at managing my son (he was a little fussy). I had to change our day because of our pediatrician appointment and she was very flexible, understanding and accommodating and got us in the next day. The photos turned out AMAZING, I couldn’t choose the best ones cause I loved them all and ended up buying all of them. Her home studio is very cute and cozy. I will definitely go back to her with my son and future babies.


Amanda is a wonderful person to work with and I’m glad we found her for our newborn photo session.  We scanned a lot of portfolios while deciding the photographer and Amanda’s work stood out as the pictures not only looked beautiful and artistic but kept the focus on the people even with the props
and background. She maintained a very clean safe and comfortable environment for the entire session and she’s very professional. We just got our gallery and its gorgeous and speaks volumes about her work. We are happy that we were able to get our session with Amanda and they will be wonderful moments that we would keep looking for the rest of our lives. She was kind enough to accept our last minute request for a Signature creation and it is one of the best pictures we got. Totally recommend her and I can see we will be working with her again. She has the most amazing collection of props that anyone could think of and it shows how much passion and dedication she puts into her work. It’s Sunny in Boise is the place to go for any of photography needs and Amanda is the perfect combination of art, passion and talent. Thanks a lot for the wonderful moments you have created for us.


We had a maternity photo session with Amanda and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. Not only did our photos turn out amazing (I am still getting messages from friends and family and stopped in the halls at work with people raving about how great they look), but Amanda was absolutely delightful to work with. We met a couple of weeks before the photo session at her home studio, which is gorgeous btw, and were able to talk about style and location. She also has tons of maternity dresses that you can try on and borrow for the sessions and I was able to find a stunning red dress that I fell in love with. The whole process was very simple and Amanda made me feel so comfortable from the beginning. On the day of our photo session Amanda was right on time and very organized. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Out of all the photos my husband and I have together, our maternity ones are by far my favorite!!! Thank you so much Amanda!


After doing research on photographers all across the Pacific Northwest, my wife stubbled upon It’s Sunny in Boise Photography and started to talk with Amanda about what she wanted. We had everything planned out with her and booked, but then our baby came early and had to undergo heart surgery. Amanda was purely amazing with working with us to try and figure out when we could schedule a Newborn Baby Photo Session with It’s Sunny in Boise Photography. She was responsive and understanding as we battled our daughter’s recovery and balanced everything else that comes with being new parents.

When the time came for our photoshoot, Amanda treated our little princess as if it was her own child. She was patient, caring and detailed. She even included a personalized custom photo which captured the bravery and journey of our little girl. The photograph was of her laying on boxing gloves (tough little fighter) and was centered upon her chest scar that she wears so proudly.

Overall I was speechless at Amanda’s work and how beautiful everything turned out. Amanda is now my go to photographer since my little girl deserves the best and Amanda is the best. Thank you Amanda for all your hard work and to all the new (or expecting) parents out there…go with Amanda, you won’t regret it.


We booked our son’s newborn photos with Amanda and we could not be any more happier with our experience before, during, and after our photo session. Amanda was very thorough in explaining her services and what we should expect, welcoming upon our arrival, and professional. I ended up purchasing the whole gallery because I loved every single photo. She captured our newborn perfectly and produced a gorgeous gallery of diverse photos of our son and our family. She charges reasonably, had a quick turnaround time for our photos, and was very responsive. I highly recommend booking your photos with Amanda. You will not regret the photos she captures of your precious little one!!


Amanda is a beautiful soul, and it shows in her patience and work. She is so thorough in her details, and it showed in preparing me for the captivating photos that transpired. I researched a lot of newborn photographers and I can honestly say there is no one like Amanda out there. I even went back for the 1 year milestone and will continue with our family photos too. Her studio is so warm and welcoming and she has adorable outfits and accessories galore! She is a true gem and you will be grateful you choose her with your precious ones photos.


Went to have my newborn session with Amanda at her Boise Studio. One of my coworkers had recommended her and I am so happy she did! Not only is her work a piece of art in itself, she was one of the sweetest and kindest people I had ever met. She was very quick spoil me as new mom as well, I spent most of my sons photo shoot asleep on her arm chair in the studio and she took care of everything. Including changing my sons diapers ☺️ What really won me over was how careful and considerate she was with him.

Highly recommend Amanda. She is super patient and talented. Could not be happier with our photos!


Amanda is a phenomenal photographer and does a terrific job. Maternity and Newborn Photography is her passion and it shows in every single photo she takes. We worked with her for our first and second child (both maternity and newborn) and have been extremely pleased with the results. It’s Sunny in Boise Photography is the Best Newborn Photographer in Boise. I would highly recommend her.


Amanda has taken both our daughters newborn photos and family photos over the last 4 years and she is understanding about the challenges of working with a newborn and young kids at many stages in between and I have felt completely safe with her handling my two week olds. Amanda takes beautifully lit photos with portrait style along with the artistic photojournalism so you get both and executed exceptionally. She provides good instruction on locations, dressing, and general tips to get the best photos. I literally cannot find a photographer that is better and her prices are reasonable too for such great quality.


Amanda is amazing! I am SO happy with our little man’s 6 month milestone photo session. Amanda was easy to communicate with, so friendly and warm, and great with our baby! He can be shy with new people, but he was already smiling at her as soon as we walked in to her studio. He was instantly comfortable with her and it shows in the photos! She captured our baby and his personality perfectly, and we will always treasure the images. We are so grateful to Amanda for capturing this time in his and our lives!


We booked Amanda for our maternity and newborn baby photo session after we quickly fell in love with her online portfolio. I could not be happier with our decision!! Amanda is such a skilled artist with impeccable attention to detail. She made the maternity session so easy – I even got to pick from her many maternity gowns and save on buying my own! They turned out so vibrant and beautiful. Nothing compares, however, to the marvelous way she captured our newborn son! I am over the moon at how adorably cute and special they all are. I think it was the hardest decision I ever had to make when narrowing down the photos we wanted to purchase. Amanda is a complete natural with newborns. I was shocked at how calm and happy our baby was during our four-hour session. She is truly talented, hard working, friendly and so easy to work with. You will NOT be disappointed with her work!
