About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Everything, but mostly I enjoy capturing those moments that are fleeting and making them last forever. I love when you get that adorable expression, or the picture of interaction between people that might be easy to miss. I just love all of it. I love working with people. It's my dream job!

    I unfortunately did not have a great experience. During our photo session I had to ask the "photographer" where we should stand/pose. No direction was given and I felt like I had to be the one the to direct where we should be taking pictures at. We had about 5 good photos out of about 35. When I say good I mean good for what we had to look at. The ones we ended up with That were "edited" are almost embarrassing to say they were taken "professionally". I didn't want to write a review because I didn't want to speak negatively about the photographer, BUT, I just ordered prints of these photos and they all have a blue tint to them. It's just disappointing and frustrating, I'm sorry but I do not recommend this photographer.

    I'm so impressed with the work I've seen Amy coming out with. She really seems to instinctively know how to bring out the best in her subjects - although I've never met her in person, I feel like I know her children's personalities so well, she really lets them shine with her photography. I can only wish that she lived closer to me, I'd so love to have her do my family shots!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm always reading. I search things everyday to try and learn more and improve wherever I can with my photography. There's always something I didn't know (of course) and I love trying new techniques and adding new ways of doing things to my list. I'm hoping that all the work I do trying to learn will add to making me a better photographer.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've loved photography since I can remember. I've always had a camera with me, whether it was a disposable, a cheap point and shoot, or now my Canon DSLR. I always try to find things to practice on. I've done nature shots, I take tons of pictures of my 2 girls, and family is always asking me to bring my camera to take pictures or asking me for prints of ones I've taken. I feel like photography is my "niche" and it's my dream to have it be my source of income someday.
