Celebrating life through joyful, colorful art

hi, i'm amy!

Imagine family photos full of joy, color, and real, genuine laughter. Imagine a family photoshoot that feels like a fun adventure with the people you love most. That is what I’m after with every single family I photograph. My approach to family photography is that this isn’t just about pictures – it’s about feelings and turning those feelings into art. It’s about creating real moments with your family and cultivating real happiness, not just faking it. When you look at your photos a decade from now, I want you to feel like you are being transported back to this one magical moment in time. 




your joyful vision

My approach to your session is one of collaboration and co-creation. I am the artist here to bring your vision to life. I want to help you weave together a story through art – and have fun doing it! We’re talking wind in your hair, sand in your toes kind of fun, where we let loose, get a little messy, and color a little outside the lines. No forced smiles allowed!

how this works

You do the dreaming, I’ll do the creating. Together, we’re going to dive deep and create something special, something true. Whether it’s inside your home, at your favorite place, or inside my studio, we’re not just photographing a moment, we’re photographing a memory. I want yours to be beautiful.

“Amy is an absolute angel to work with! She is so professional and makes you and the family feel comfortable in every shoot and situation. Her patience with the little ones is that of a saint. I won’t let anyone else photograph my family since I’ve met her!”
