amanda brayton photography


I have been photographing newborns and families here in Wisconsin since 2009, and started photographing births in 2011. I still remember the amazing high I felt after photographing my first birth. I called my husband, Dan on the drive home and said "That was the most amazing thing I've ever witnessed! It was just so INCREDIBLE." 

My husband has been an amazing supporter of my big and sometimes wild dreams for this business I started nearly 10 years ago. 

Since starting Amanda Brayton Photography I have truly learned so much. I have found what speaks to me as an artist, and I have loved every minute of this crazy journey as an entrepreneur.


Want to know what makes me smile? My girls; Morgan, Mabel & Magnolia. My husband, Dan. Sunrises & Sunsets. Sunny days. Wearing black shirts & jeans (seriously this is what I wear basically every day). Amazing conversations. Adventures! I have a million and five hobbies. Paper crafting(card making and such), drawing & painting, sewing, and baking to name a few. 

I love being outside and enjoying nature. Being outside, walking through trails is when I feel most at peace. 


A couple years ago my family and I took a day trip to a campsite I had never been. I was captivated by the gorgeous lakes, the sun beaming through the gaps of the tall trees. We have gone back to Hartman Creek State Park every year since.
