Amanda Kramp lives in Parker, Colorado, where she wrangles a baby, two cats, and a dog (with varying degrees of success). She was on Jeopardy! once; it didn't go great, but Alex Trebek was nice. Her favorite things in life include cheeseburgers, cats, Harry Potter, and going for drives in the country so she can have twenty minutes of peace and quiet, goddammit.

You can find her swearing about motherhood on Twitter and Instagram, and occasionally on her blog, Gainfully Something.

Amanda Kramp on Motherhood, Burlesque, Body Image, Politics

I'm so excited to have had the chance to chat with Amanda Kramp! We met when I was a photographer years ago, when we were both in Madison, WI, and I would take pictures of the burlesque troupe she was part of (among other things!) Now she is a mother of a sweet baby boy who hates sleep, and she's an honest, outspoken, feminist force of nature. And there's a lot of very cute baby noises in the background that even barren old cynics like me find very heartwarming. This convo goes in a lot of directions, and I considered breaking this into two parts, but screw it: We're going all in! Strap in your butts and get ready for this mommy party!
