That desire to know where you come from still rests heavy on your heart.
It’s not just another project on your bucket list, nor something to pass the time
...but rather something Sacred. Life-changing. Necessary.
You’re realizing that now is the time to curate the story of your history not only so you can organize all the beautiful stories, photos, and records that are collecting dust.
But also so you can find belonging, understanding, and healing in your relationships with family members and most importantly….your understanding of yourself.
It’s no secret that life is fleeting. And as you think about the legacy you’ll pass down you often wonder, “What stories will I leave behind?”

"Amanda is a good storyteller and a visionary. She has a clear vision for the final product that I don't have, which makes her the right person for me to learn from. Amanda's expertise as a geneticist also enables her to understand the science behind genealogy. She has advice on where to begin in order to create a tangible takeaway from the experience that has that sophisticated and elegant style. I trust Amanda with my family history."
"Legacies Untold is painting a story with moments, capturing the beauty others may struggle to see, creating a vision and walking people through it, and creating art at the intersection of experiences."
"Amanda is sooooo heartfelt and focused on creating a GOOD, MEANINGFUL, beautiful life. She is the opposite of shallow. She cares about diving deep and being authentic. Amanda is good at making people feel cared for and like their stories are important and worth sharing."
"Amanda is so good at seeing the large scope (the big picture) and then breaking down the smaller steps to get you there. She is kind and good at reminding her clients that they are important and valued. Amanda is patient and handles frustration with patience and grace, which is so important in a long process like this. Her background, as a scientist and a photographer, brings such a unique aspect to the process that others won't. She is also a very detailed and disciplined person, and a person that I can trust to get things done."
"Amanda is obviously an expert in genealogy AND photography. She doesn't just understand storytelling, but understands it from a generational and scientific perspective that gives insight into the history and legacy of a family and their stories."

These two worlds may seem very different, but they both make me whole. My Ph.D. in Genetics helps me understand and appreciate the beauty of photography, and my photography helps me value the art of science more.
What does that mean for you?
Well, I know how to study and organize your family history with a tack-sharp eye for detail, ask the right questions to evoke stories from your family members (that you might never know otherwise), create a cohesive timeline of events from scattered genealogy information, and put it all together in an heirloom volume that is not only deeply meaningful...but crafted to be a treasured piece of art that is worth passing down for generations.
Since studying my own family history, I’ve realized that genealogy isn’t just a niche interest. It’s a sacred, life-changing, and necessary experience that allows you to find peace, belonging, understanding, and healing in your relationships with family members and your understanding of yourself.
One of my own ancestors compiled a family history book called “A Trunk Full of Memories” and inside she quoted, “We are the product of our past- the eternal link that binds us all.”
It’s so true. We are a product of the ones who went before us and somehow... in learning those untold stories, our lives become richer and we feel this sense of coming home.
