Hey there sunshine! We are so very happy that you came to our online home to look around at what we do, who we serve and what we are all about! We're a husband and wife team who took a sign from our first little girl, packed up everything we had, moved to the Outer Banks and changed the course of our entire lives. We believe in salt air breathing, sea glass hunting, in our three tiny daughters that we lovingly refer to as the Mermaid Mafia and that the nerd really can get the girl...
or so Mike says :)

Welcome!

welcome!

Behind this incredible business we adore is one heck of a support system. We are lucky parents to three wild little free spirited girls who make all the hard work worth it! We're a salt air loving, coastal dwelling, sand in every single car seat kind of family...so we nicknamed ourselves "the five waves!" We believe that it's EASIEST to work with clients when they know who we are. How could I expect clients to be themselves in front of me if they know nothing about us?! Come see what we're all about, meet Amanda, Mike and our mermaids! And can we all agree Mike is a saint for putting up with four women? You're the man, Mike!

GROWING! 

A few years ago, Mike and I found ourselves repeatedly in the same arguments. It wasn't over one big thing, rather lots and lots of little things that added up to FEEL big. We were frustrated. We were confused, because we know that's not us. We finally decided to pinpoint the issue and realized it was lack of communication when it came to GENERAL life tasks. Out of this tough place in our relationship, our LISTS were born and they have helped hundreds of other women & families get on track with all of the day-to-day, weekly, monthly and yearly things that are forgotten about, done too late or expected to be done by the other adult in the house! We also created lists for new moms, lists for traveling and MORE! Head to the Five Waves Shop to browse...we even have some free downloads & phone backgrounds there for you, too!

Amanda is absolutely incredible! The second you meet her it's like you've known her forever. She is so kind, accommodating, and thoughtful! On your wedding day you spend a good amount of time with your photographer and I can tell you there is no one I would have rather spent a lot of our day with then Amanda and her husband, Mike. We were staying in the Outerbanks for the week before the wedding and when our section of OBX flooded earlier in the week she was the first to message me and check to see if everything was OK and if she could do anything for us. She goes above and beyond to make your day as amazing as it can be. Our pictures are ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! There are so many for us to look at and share with our families and friends. She is an incredible person and you would be so lucky to have her be a part of your special day! Could not recommend her more!
