Amanda’s love of photography started in the 80s when she bought her first SLR camera and studied photography in the good old days of film and dark rooms! Her interest then was in documenting her travels around the world, photographing beautiful landscapes and people from different cultures.
Since becoming a mum, Amanda has developed an even stronger desire to hold on to precious moments as she knows how quickly they come and go! “A photograph captures a moment in time that is lost forever… but gives a lifetime of pleasure” says Amanda. 
As someone who is truly passionate about capturing those lifelong memories that can be relived over and over again through a photograph, Amanda decided to launch her own business, specialising in Lifestyle Photography using natural light and backdrops ‘on location’ to capture beautiful timeless images for her clients.

A recent addition to her business is the ‘Elegant Seductive Boudoir Experience’. Amanda knew as a Photographer that she wanted to offer this to women, after she had been on the other side of the camera herself on a make- over shoot. “It was just a fantastic experience that helped me celebrate turning 40! It left me feeling amazing and I will treasure those images forever and look back on the experience as a celebration of who I am.

“I know we all have different perceptions about Boudoir Photography but I pride myself on making women feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera so I can capture the very essence of their female beauty through elegant, timeless images, using my photography skills, posing techniques and natural light. This is an amazing experience for women of all shapes and sizes and Amanda’s team of hair and make-up stylists will leave you feeling pampered and looking gorgeous … and capturing this in beautiful imagery is something that can be treasured for a lifetime.

Whether it’s a special gift for your partner or a self-indulgent confidence boost that you’re looking for, choose the Elegant Seductive Boudoir Experience with Amanda McConnell Photography and let’s celebrate a new you.

Amanda uses only natural light, a 35, 50 or 85mm prime lens for her Boudoir Photography. All with a wide aperture of f1.8 which gives Amanda the ability to work indoors with natural light whilst maintaining a good exposure and keeping ISO settings relatively low.
Since moving into the digital age, Amanda has done lots of training courses to help develop her skills and knowledge in the genre’s she works in … and also finds YouTube and Pinterest great sources for inspiration and tips!
Amanda is a fully insured, Lifestyle Photographer based in Chesterfield and is a member of the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
