About Happy Moments

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. As our name suggests, we want to help you to forever remember your cherished times with family and friends, whether it be your wedding day, the birth of your first child, or any other moment you wish to remember. Although our company is relatively new, it really started many years ago with a little girl and her very first camera. Well, that little girl grew up, and so did technology, but at the heart of it all, the most important thing was, and still is, a passion for recording life’s happy moments.

Our little photography company was started by Amanda Raines, that little girl with the camera. In high school, she took photography classes to continue learning how to perfect her passion. After a number of years, Amanda got married. Unfortunately, the one thing she really wanted for her wedding, she couldn’t afford, a good professional photographer. A family friend was used and did a decent job, but like any business, there is a difference between amateur and professional. That was when Amanda decided that she must start her own company and help people get professional quality photos at a rate they can actually afford. That has and always will be the goal of this company.

Though she has taken professional level photography training and most of her competitors continue to charge high prices, she tries to keep her prices low. You shouldn’t have to be wealthy to get beautiful photos of your family. You also shouldn’t have to settle for that cold, staged, studio look. Located in the center of Niagara, we have at our disposal an almost endless supply of natural backgrounds for your pictures. For indoor shots, we use a small, in home studio. For lighting purposes, we prefer to do indoor photoshoots there, but we do have portable lighting and can make house calls if needed. Though Amanda has a special affinity for photographing babies and small children, she does weddings, engagement photos, families large and small, and even business photography if you need pictures for marketing your business.

It’s been a long road to get to this point, but we’re not done yet. We certainly hope you will join us as we continue to capture life’s Happy Moments.
