Lifestyle Film Photographer

Celebrating life through joyful, colorful art

hi, i'm amy!

I’m a lifestyle film photographer, but really, I’m a dreamer, a seeker, and an artist. This isn’t just my business, it’s my passion. I’m never content to stand still, and I want to invite you along for the ride. I believe there is an artistry to a photoshoot, and it goes far beyond posing or angles or even beautiful lighting. That smiley, happy picture with everyone looking at the camera? I believe that is a byproduct of an experience that cultivates happiness, and doesn’t just fake it. I don’t want to give you just another pretty picture – I want to turn your feelings into art.

your joyful vision

My approach to a session is that of collaboration. 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.
