Spring is my FAVORITE time of year...by far. It is time to celebrate new beginnings, set intentions, cultivate your goals and enjoy mother nature. As women, we tend to put ourselves at the bottom of our priority list when doing those things and I want to invite you to bring yourself to the top.
Celebrate this season of life. No matter how messy it may look at times, it is YOURS. These sessions are taking place in one of my absolute favorite places....a greenhouse. Gardening to me is the perfect symbol of life. You set intentions for your garden, you cultivate the land, you get your hands dirty and sometimes things don't turn out how you plan but you're in it and you've got this. You pull weeds to keep the negativity out and let your plants thrive. Then you sit back and take it all in and see where this intentional, dirty, messy work has gotten you. A greenhouse isn't just a pretty space. It's a symbol of how I choose to live my life, and I want to invite you in to celebrate this joy with me.
While motherhood is absolutely a major part of my life, I don't think you need to be a mother to celebrate women. I want this to be open to all women, of all ages and stages of life. Bring your best friend or your partner. Bring your sister, your cousin, your aunt, your mother, your grandmother, your children. This session is about celebrating you as a woman and what and who is special to you!*

The Face Behind AMP
I've been photographing children, moms-to-be, newborns, couples and events since 2006 just before receiving my bachelor's degree in Photography & Digital Media. I have a passion for documenting life in an authentic and artistic way so that my clients can be present and soak in this season of life.
In case you're wondering what's making me smile...it's watching my 5 year old take photos of my 1 year old with my very first DSLR. Proud mama moment!

Celebrating Women - Limited Edition Sessions
Reserve your spot today!
Click the button below to view available spots, and to book your time slots. Payment due in full to hold your slot. Due to the nature of mini sessions, session fee is non refundable but can be gifted to friends or family if you're not able to attend.
Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early so we can keep things on schedule. If arriving late, your session will still need to end at its original scheduled time since others will be booked after you. Because of this, I cannot guarantee meeting the minimum of 5 images when not given the full 20 minutes. Of course I will always do my best to be accommodating and work to deliver the best images possible in the amount of time given.
