About Me

             Hi! My name is Amanda Ruth Speakman, and I'm an eighteen year old portrait photographer currently majoring in art and design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Though I reside in the city of San Luis Obispo a lot of the time, I am based both in SLO and the foothills of Northern, California. 

              I've always been drawn to taking photographs. I started out capturing mostly landscape when I was really young, but began to pick up portrait photography throughout my years of high school. I can now proudly say I have been capturing heartwarming and authentic moments of wonderful high school seniors, the most loving couples, and the sweetest families for the last three years- just to provide a few examples! 

              Though I find the artistry aspect of photography super fun, and it is actually what got me photographing in the first place, I have grown to love making connections with those I photograph and snapping their most authentic moments. With that, I hope to be able to work with you soon!
