Nice to meet you! My name is Amanda, and I have been a hobby photographer for over 20 years. I have loved taking pictures of my family and pets for the longest time. A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to combine my love of photography and crafts. I started creating props to use in my photos. About 3 years ago, I bought my first photo studio kit and backdrops. I was instantly in love! Soon I was hauling my studio to family gatherings and insisting everyone pose for pictures.

As I continued to learn and improve upon my scenes, I realized that I wanted to share my ideas with the world. This is where the idea for “A Moment Stopped” came from. A place where photographers (professional, novice, and everyone in-between) could come to get inspiration or learn. I believe that anyone who wants can create their own photo setups.

I hope today that you find something you enjoy on my site, and that it inspires you to create something fun for your own photos.

Me when I had my baby bump. Even my bump got a fun setup!
