Hi and welcome! If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ve probably noticed my new digs! I’ve been working hard on a website redesign and am so excited to finally be blogging in the new space!

For my first post, I just wanted to introduce myself and Amy Boyd Photography. I wasn’t always a photographer; my first life was as a lawyer trained in human rights. During my work and travels, I picked up my first “real” camera to help me capture some amazing memories. I even took a little free photography seminar at an art gallery near my apartment in Thailand! When I settled down with my husband in the beautiful Temecula Valley and welcomed our daughter, I discovered a brand new passion for photography to document my precious girl and our life.

That soon became a passion for capturing special memories for others, and thus Amy Boyd Photography was born! I specialize in lifestyle family photography because I love real moments and real connections. In later posts, I’ll dive more into my philosophy and what lifestyle photography means to me, and I’ll be blogging plenty of client sessions to share more of my work!

When I’m not photographing families, I love to travel and adventure with my little family of 3. We are obsessed with Hawaii and Disneyland and love to go hiking. I like to garden and teach my little one to grow our own fruits, veggies, and flowers. I also have a true crime addiction and especially podcasts! I fall asleep listening to murder podcasts, which is probably weird but hey, whatever works, right? Coffee and wine are my love language, and I could probably eat sushi every day for the rest of my life.
