Hello!

My name is Amy, and I see in photos. I see incredible backgrounds, lighting, expressions, interactions, colors, humorous events...all day long. I love creating. Touching others' hearts. Most of all, learning about you.

I am often asked how I got into photography. My journey began when my grandmother, an artist herself, gave me my first camera on my 10th birthday. Since that time, I have had the privilege of building my education and experience.

What I have discovered is that my training in design and art direction helps me create and see photos, compositions, the best colors – quickly. Exactly which backgrounds to use; how to pose, coach, frame, and capture you with ease (and some silly jokes). So we can keep moving, and your expressions and interactions will be fresh and natural.

I would love to share these gifts with you.

Let's begin,
