Ordinary moments.
Extraordinary photos.

Film photography that celebrates the the joy of your beautifully imperfect life.

Family photos shouldn’t be a chore. You don’t have to make your children dress up in clothes they hate and go stand still in a field. Family photos can just be your best day ever. I want to photograph you with the people you love in the places you love. I want sand in your toes, wind in your hair kind of fun. Picture your best day, then invite me along!

I believe that color brings joy. Bright blue skies, yellow flowers, green grass…these are the things that make me happy, and the things I want to give you. There’s no need for matching white outfits for a session with me. Just grab your favorite clothes in your favorite colors – some comfy jeans, a colorful swimsuit, that super soft t-shirt you’ve had forever – it’s all about you and your family, just as you are.

Your session will be full of laughter, tickles, and a whole lot of hugs. No yelling and forcing kids to look at the camera – I’m just here to make art and memories of your family while you have fun!

Here’s how it works: pick a place you love to be, and let’s hang out. That’s it! No need to spend hours stressing about matching outfits, no worrying about the kids being a bit wild. I’ll bring my camera (or, let’s be honest, a lot of cameras), and in a few weeks, you’ll receive art that shows real memories of your real life, in fun and vivid color.

“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!”
