Hey y’all! I am Amanda, the owner and sole photographer of A. Keen Photography. If you are a coffee, wine or dog lover we are sure to be best friends.
When I am not behind the camera, I am a mom to two tiny humans who constantly keep me on my toes. I have a psychology degree from the University of Alberta but decided it wasn’t really what I wanted to do. Instead in 2011 I started snapping photos, and well I haven’t really stopped since. After my second daughter was born, I took the leap into photography full time, quit my job and opened my studio space in April 2017.
I am a self-proclaimed work-a-holic and enjoy being busy. Don’t get me wrong I love a good night in with Netflix and a piece of cake but I can only sit still for so long. I am an advocate for cleaner living and am a Young Living Essential Oil distributor. I am trained in Chakra healing and love yoga and puppy snuggles.
I have been asked many times what my specialty is, or what is my favorite thing to photograph, and the honest truth is, I LOVE IT ALL. My biggest desire is to capture those fleeting moments, whether it be the look of the groom seeing his beautiful bride, a momma kissing her brand new baby or an insane tickle fight out in the fall leaves. A photo can capture the moment that is otherwise gone. Let me be along side you through all of your greatest adventures <3

"Amanda was great to book a maternity session with and on photoshoot day she was personable with just enough no nonsense to get us into the poses she knew would flatter us. We received our proofs and are blown away by the quality and warmth of them."

"Amanda is such an incredibly talented photographer! We found her when looking for a newborn photographer but we’ve now used her many times. She has the most extraordinary way of making families look perfect (not easy with young kids)! She has done multiple studio and outdoor session for us and she is equally as skilled in both. I constantly look at all our photo sessions and am amazed at their beauty, the lighting, and style. I always look forward to our next photo shoot with her!"
