Photographers Who Inspire: Getting to Know Amanda Barrick

What got you started in photography? 

While I've always known the importance of taking pictures, when my son was born in 2013, things got real. My own parents passed away when I was 9 years old, and growing up, photos of us became incredibly important to hold on to the memories of the details of our everyday life. Becoming a mom made it even more important to capture memories for my son to look back on in the future. Eventually I started to fall in love with the art of photography and I've been trying to capture our memories with that in mind ever since.
