Last summer we chose Amy for our engagement photos and absolutely LOVED working with her! Prior to our session she was able to answer any/all questions we had about her services. She suggested unique backdrops based on what we were looking for, and the time of year. During our shoot she was punctual and her attitude made us feel relaxed enough to capture genuine candid photos. She helped pose us but was also open to any ideas that we had seen or thought of. Our pictures turned out awesome and we cannot wait to work with her again for our wedding this fall! More...

Working with Amy was great! Her passion for her work was evident, from our interactions with her to the finished product. She has a soft humor about her that made me feel comfortable with her right away. The photos turned out so wonderful, were easy to access, and I received them faster than I anticipated. More...

Q&A

The secret to a great photograph is capturing the emotion of the people in front of the camera. Amy makes sure everyone feels comfortable during her sessions so their expressions are genuine and relaxed. When people are having fun and truly enjoying what they are doing, that comes through in each photo.

Family sessions: How many people in your family and ages of children? Does anyone have any sensitivities that I should be aware of before our session begins?
Newborn sessions: Are there any siblings and if so, ages of each child? Do you have any questions about my style of newborn photography?
Weddings: What is your wedding style? Do you have a venue reserved? How many people in your wedding party and how many guests? What do you hope for out of your wedding photographer?
School Photography: Who did you work with last year for your school photos? What worked and what needed to be improved in the photo day and ordering processes? Do you feel parents were happy with the photos they received last year?

I love capturing the changes in families and kids each year. Capturing a couple's wedding and then as new parents is such an amazing experience as a photographer. And families with older children, seeing them each year and witnessing the kids growing up and hearing about all their experiences throughout the year between photo shoots is so awesome. I treat all clients like dear friends, so sharing in their joy is really the best part of my job.

I was inspired to start my own business after I started doing photo sessions for friends. They began referring my services to their friends and since it was gathering some speed, I decided to make it a little more official with a business. For school photography, I found a love of portraits and a need to provide a more personal experience to schools.

My clients will receive a very personal experience when working with me for photos.
For families, I can help decide on outfits for the session and what type of location would be best (park setting vs. urban).
For engaged couples, I can help create a timeline of events for the wedding day that will help get the best photos without having it take up too much time out of their wedding day.
For newborns, my easy-going and low-key approach keeps new parents at ease and doesn't put stress on a new baby.
For schools, I provide an exclusive experience which results in a happy administration for how smooth photo days go and happy parents for the quality of the photos they receive.
