Amanda is incredible to work with! During a recent photoshoot with my 6 month old baby, Amanda was professional, flexible, patient and determined - she took over 500 pictures to ensure that she captured the essence of my happy, smiling baby, which she did beautifully. The turnaround time for picture delivery was very quick, and I am SO pleased with the images. I highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to work with an experienced and professional photographer. - Madeline

We really like the photos.  We feel like you did a great job at capturing "us."  - Siri & Leigh

I have worked with a handful of different photographers and Amanda is by far the easiest to work with. She will work with the model on the how to best capture the look or concept, and is open to different ideas. Her eye for lighting and depth has given me some of my favorite pictures to date. If you are questioning whether to work with her or not, I would highly suggest it!! - Jeff

Amanda did such a nice job during our family photography session. I'm sure It wasnt easy capturing two adults, a grumpy toddler, and a puppy in family photos - but we loved the finished product! Amanda is professional, calm, and has a natural talent in photography. She was also very flexible with timing and ventured to our home in a Chicago snowstorm. She puts the client first! Amanda photographed a few friends and their babies, and I loved their photos too. I highly recommend Amanda for family photography sessions. Two thumbs up! - Kristine

I needed some new headshots and working with Amanda could not have been easier. She was meticulous but very friendly and helpful throughout the entire shoot. The pictures came out beautifully and the entire process was seamless. She's also hilarious. Highly recommended! - Frank

"Taking Amanda Mausner's Chi-Town Cultures & Photography Workshop was a great departure from our daily life. We got to enjoy our incredible city...all from a unique perspective with a wonderful guide. Amanda brings her passion and  enthusiam for Chicago and its diverse people into her workshop. She planned a fun and informative day, showing us handy photography skills while sharing insights about the different neighborhoods we encountered. She introduced us to some great web apps to help everyone document the day and create lasting memories. We look forward to our next excursion with Amanda."  - Steve and Felicia
