My first photographs were taken with a Kodak Instamatic with black and white film. My subjects were my Barbie dolls. They were perfectly posed, having a picnic outside or riding horses. My subjects now move around a lot more (and have bendable joints, thank goodness). I've always loved photographing people. From an early age I understood the importance of making memories and capturing a moment in time through photography, either for yourself to look back on or for future generations to enjoy.
Photography only recently became a career for me. I was blessed to come to a place in my life where I was able to really think about what I wanted to be when I grow up and I landed here. I'm so glad I faced my fears and took the leap of faith to pursue a lifelong love of mine.
If you choose me as your photographer, you will invest in someone who takes their job very seriously. I put my heart and soul into every session. I want you to come away from our session with images that really reflect the true nature of those being photographed and, most importantly, for you to FEEL when you look at your images.
I don't strive to be the busiest photographer in town. I'd rather create quality work for one happy customer at a time, learning more and more about my craft as I go and always improving. I never want to lose my passion for photography and the joy it brings me.
I am playful, intuitive and very patient. Our time together will reflect that. I love to have fun during my sessions! I like to put you at ease. I put my experience as a mother of three, stand-up comedian and volunteer phone counselor to good use! I want your session to be as painless as possible.
Thank you for your interest in Amy Hendricks Photography. I hope we can work together to capture your memories soon!
