My name is Amy and I am the one behind Artistically Amy Photography. I am a mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Photography became a hobby of mine in college. I was always trying to catch my friends when they were least expecting it; I wanted to capture their faces truthfully, honestly, beautifully. As an Elementary & Special Education major, photography was my creative outlet.
It didn’t turn into anything more serious, a business, until 2012. Two of my best friends became mamas and I was able to do some portraits of their babies. I realized that photography was more than just a creative outlet; it was a passion. Suddenly, I was shooting anything and everything. I photographed individuals, babies, families, couples, even a wedding!
My style emerged, and I realized which sessions were my favorites, and my best work – maternity, newborns, and children. Once I entered motherhood myself, this realization hit home and I jumped all in with my business. I want my business to truly represent what it meant to me – capturing mamas and their babies. That is the core of my love for photography.
PS – I also love red velvet cupcakes, iced coffee, and pasta.
