Hi, my name is Amanda and I am a portrait photographer specialising in children's photography and actors' headshots. I am also a mother of two boys, who together with family and friends have inspired my love for photography. Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site.
I set up Amanda Pepper Photography 10 years ago, having worked previously as a Dutch translator and family lawyer. After the birth of my first son, I decided to study photography in Bristol. Alongside running the business, I have continued my professional training through the Society of Portrait and Wedding Photographers and won Gold Awards from this organisation for my child and baby photography. I also volunteer as a child minder for St Marys in Ealing, and in the evenings teach the piano.
I specialise in black and white photography, but all photographs are available in colour. My style is classical and timeless. Most of my baby work is done in an upstairs bedroom of my house where I have studio lights and backdrops By contrast I like to take photographs of children having a good time, so enjoy photographing children and families outdoors where possible. Theatre headshots can be either or both. I aim to capture natural shots, and family relationships but also some more contemplative portraits. I am always open to any ideas you have, and do not rush my sessions. I will advise you on what type of clothes to wear and how to prepare for the shoot if you are unsure.
Do feel free to contact me through the website if you would like any further information. I look forward to hearing from you.
