The Story of a Photographer


My name is Amanda Hughes, the owner of Amanda Hughes Photography. I am an Alabama native but now a proud momma of 2 precious boys, 1 little girl and a military wife. We are currently stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. This is a little about me and why I started this business.
When I was younger I was always painting and creating crafts. One Christmas my dad decided to buy a Canon Rebel film camera. I loved it I couldn't put the camera down. In 2010 I purchased my Nikon D3000. I started to take photos of my surroundings and of my close friends. As time went on and I started learning more about my camera I fell more in love with photography. I first established True Love photography in 2011 and went by that name until I moved to Manhattan, Kansas in 2014. Kansas is where I met my amazing husband, who might I add is from upstate New York, and we have two handsome little boys and a beautiful baby girl. Of course after getting married I changed my photography name to Amanda Hughes Photography. At the beginning of 2017 we moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado and the time is coming near that will move again! We will be headed to Lawton, Oklahoma at the beginning of next year.
I have a Bachelor’s in Psychology with a minor in Sociology and currently pursuing a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, with specialties in Military Family & Culture and Trauma & Crisis. I have also taken some classes in photography but I have mainly self-taught myself when it came to photography. I currently am a stay at home mother which I love dearly. Spending time with my kiddos is one of the most rewarding things I have been able to do so far.
Art is near and dear to my heart. I feel that art captures a moment in time that we can't always get back. May that be through a painting, music, or a photograph it is a moment in time that has been stop just for that second. This is why photographs are so important to me because the hold so much value.
Now that you have learned a little about me I would love to hear from you and be a part of your special moments in life. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will gladly answer them for you. Can't wait to hear from you!
