Mandeville Family Photographer- Sutton’s 6 Month Session I think I am the luckiest girl to be a Mandeville family photographer. I get to meet so many sweet families. I was really excited when Sutton’s mom, Nikki, asked me to do his 6 month session. I have known Nikki and Danny for a long time. I […]

Mandeville Newborn Photographer – Prescott’s Baby Session I truly love my job as a Mandeville newborn photographer. I enjoy all those sweet snuggles and feel blessed. Little Prescott was a dream in the studio. He even let his big brother lean in for a kiss!  Want to see other Amanda Hodges Weir Photography newborn sessions? […]

Mandeville Baby Photographer- Rowan’s Studio Session I was so excited to be Rowan’s Mandeville baby photographer. He was such a sweet boy in the studio. He is the first boy in the family, and his sisters are so excited!  This was our first session in the new studio and Rowan helped me break it in! […]

Her dad and my dad are best friends, and once owned a color lab together. As many people know, my dad is a photographer, and so was my grandfather. Well, Laura’s dad, […]

Mahitha and Pavan brought family and friends together for a New Orleans Indian Wedding at the Hyatt Regency. We celebrated over a few days and it was a beautiful experience. Both Mahitha and Pavan’s family were so kind and friendly. I don’t know how many times Cyd and I were asked if we ate, and […]

I was so excited to do the Mandeville birth photography for Lauren’s sweet baby boy, Jaxon.  Jaxon is what we call a “rainbow baby.” A rainbow baby is the blessing that comes after the loss of a pregnancy. My oldest child is a rainbow baby, so I understand the meaning and significance of little Jaxon’s […]

I was so excited to shoot the Autin family’s documentary family photography session in Mandeville. I have known Mandy since high school, so it is always fun to visit with her sweet family. What I love most about documentary family photography is having the opportunity to see how families interact with one another, instead of […]
