About

“The perfect photograph is not singularly created by the background, lighting or even the subject, but all three miraculously intertwined. And when you throw in authenticity and emotion to the mix, you now have created a memorable piece of art from a split second in time.”

I, Amanda Sitterding, am the one behind the camera at Cyprus Photography. I live in a small town in Indiana in between Rushville and Greensburg. We have a small hobby farm that is always growing. I am the mother of two crazy handsome boys, one darling little girl, and one more baby on the way. My hobbies include baking and being outside. The smells of nature make my soul happy! Its crazy how much peace and quiet amongst the trees and birds can soothe a hectic day. I would say I am reserved and quiet until you get to know me. I enjoy uncomfortable conversations and tend to be a deep and analytical thinker which has led me to be a perfectionist. I have a nerdy side and love scifi/fantasy such as Star Wars, Marvel/DC etc. My favorite color is pink, I am an avid coffee drinker and my favorite months are Spring and Fall. I started out with a BA from Purdue in Natural Resources, then eight years later earned an MBA from Ball State and worked in the accounting field for five years. Once we had our third child, I decided to stay home to be with my kids and pursue my lifetime hobby as a professional photographer. Our family is a circus but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

I am glad you are here and wanting to learn more about the face behind the camera and I hope we get to meet!
