About Me


Amanda Dale

Hi there!! Thank you for stopping by to check out CharCole Photography!!

My name is Amanda! A little bit about me?  My love for photography first started in the dark room of my high school photo lab and in the studio of my Aunt’s photo biz where I assisted her often.  After HS, I attended college and got my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree.

Though I have been a pediatric hygienist for 15 years, my love for photography has only grown over the years.  In 2013, CharCole became my official side hustle/weekend warrior job.  A little over a year ago, I was fortunate enough to be able to step away from my dental career to focus more on my family, and hopefully grow CharCole into much more than a side hustle:)

I have an amazing, supportive, super smart, smokin’ hot husband who is my biggest cheerleader in all of this. We live in Frisco with 2 of our 3 kiddos! (The oldest has already graduated HS!! I feel crazy old!)  When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me working out with my Camp Gladiator crazies, talking & teaching Essential oils to all of my crunchy friends, and driving my kids all over town to soccer, taekwondo, gymnastics and more!

I hope you enjoy the website and you find my style compatible to what you are looking for in your next photo shoot! I look forward to hearing from you!
