Amanda's Story 

Once there was a girl named Amanda who lived in a small town by the mountains and adored all things artsy. She spent plenty of time in dance classes and exploring the outdoors. Amanda always had a camera in hand and was know for setting up photoshoots with her little sister. She met prince charming at 16yrs old the two love birds tied the knot a few years later. Together, they moved to the big city, adventured across the world, dabbled in real estate and adopted a couple of fur babies. Amanda lived out her dreams of becoming a teacher and cheerleading in the CFL before living her biggest dream of becoming a mother. The couple moved their little family back to a small community where they built a home and raise two little boys. 

A little more about me.....

I strive to live and teach positivity, kindness

and living by the golden rule. 

Home is my favorite place to be and I'm total home body.

You can find me curled up in front of my fire place

or on the deck during a summer day likely with a hot coffee.

I live for simple joys like family snuggles in our King

or Friday movie night.   

Sunshine and dance parties make me happy.... and coffee. 

I love coffee, enough said. 

I'm a creative soul. I love home design, a good DIY, painting an oversized canvas, designing flat lays and crafting with my boys.


I'm an early childhood and elementary teacher.

At the moment I choose to substitute teach. 

It gives me the flexibility to pursue photography and spend the time I want at home with my boys.     

My Professional Photography Journey 

I started photographing professionally shortly after my first born arrived about 7yrs ago.  

This was the beginning of

Sweet Pea Photography by Amanda Ross 

where I specialized in maternity, children's portraits, family and photographed over 40 newborns.  

All of this success through word of mouth and a simple facebook page.

It signifies expansion and furthering my photography venture.

I'm so grateful to everyone who has been apart of this journey so far and I hope you're as excited as I am for what's ahead.

I love to capture the real and natural moments.

I deliver memories that will be cherished forever and capture the everyday

as well as the milestones in your life.

can't wait to photograph your story.
