finding beauty in the everyday

oklahoma city photographer

hey, i'm amy

Utah girl, born and raised, living in Oklahoma City with my husband Bruce and our sweet two year old boy, Jude.  

When I'm not photographing or chasing kids around, you can find me in the kitchen baking (usually something sweet #sweettooth) or snuggling up on the couch with my family.

My absolute favorite part of being a photographer is the connections I'm able to make with people. I love to capture the intimate moments of the day to day that give life meaning. From the excitment of a new birth to the tender touch between parent and child. These are the moments that matter. Moments you will treasure.

my philosophy

I strive to create images that will help you remember your why. On hard days, when you feel like giving up, and you're wondering what you've gotten yourself into (we've all been there!), you're able to look at the images of your family and remember your why. I want that love you have for each other to be felt through the images we create together.

“Amy was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer. She makes the whole process so easy, is great with kids, and has so much talent at capturing photos that feel real to us but at the same time like a work of art. I will cherish our captured moments forever.”

"Stop looking and book Amy today. Her warm personality and technical expertise always result in my favorite surprises of the year--family pictures! We are so lucky to have have seen Amy's natural talent and eye for beauty develop over the years. Through all our military moves we'd never go a year without her capturing our growing family even if it means a road trip to get to her. Worth it every time. Plus, our walls are now filled with beautiful and authentic reminders of our family history: from laughter to sibling battles and tender moments."

"Amy has created a photographic history of our growing family through the years. She has a warmth and a calmness about her that allows us to feel comfortable when we naturally aren’t terribly comfortable in front of the camera. She is patient and has lots of tricks up her sleeves to connect with the little ones. Her images are never trendy but have a timeless artistry and often captures a moment full of emotion and memory of that time in our lives. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Thank you Amy for not only the beautiful images but also your friendship."
