hi there, I'm amy

All I need are a good pair of boots, warm sunshine, my camera & some paintbrushes to have a great day! When I'm not hosting a workshop, painting, or on an adventure with one of my favorite families you'll find me in my barn with my little menagerie of animals...all minis & short like myself! To say I’m a little animal obsessed would be an understatement! Summer is my favorite time of year & I love to sit out in the yard with them all in the sunshine with a good book! When I’m not with all my furbabes I’m doing life with my love, Bo! He keeps things running around our mini farm when I’m out shooting! He’ll tell you we have too many animals but he secretly loves it! We love to go camping & even then we’re still surrounded by animals!

If you love to have a wild & fun time with your kids I can’t wait to meet you! Your family becomes my family! And if you want to bring your furbabe along, even better! I’m excited to be YOUR LIFE photographer! So let’s go create something FUN!

I'm mommy's first & only baby, she tells me so everyday! She loves me sooooo much! I'm the oldest & was found on the side of the road when I was a baby! I'm the most spoiled dog you'll ever meet! I like to ride everywhere, chase squirrels, look for deer & bark at big birds flying! Touch my mama & you may lose a hand! 


HI MY NAME IS SOOIEE

I'm Downtown Leroy Brown! My mama had a crazy idea she wanted another dog! I'm a lil Jack Russell! I was the runt in my litter & didn't like to leave my furmama. Mama brought me home & I loooove my big sister Sooiee! I love to snuggle under the covers & lay on the pillow, chase frogs & rip their legs off, nap on the porch in the sun, play in the mud, dig holes & chew on all my toys! My teeth chatter when I get so happy! I have such a great life! 

HI MY NAME IS LEROY

I'm Leroy's sister! Mama came to pick him up but I had other plans for her! I wanted to go home with her too! So I turned on my puppy charm with my long eyelashes & pretty brown eyes & it worked! She brought me home too! I love being in the pool with mommy! I even have my own boogie board! I'm a nervous happy tinkler so I might pee on your foot when you come over! I LOVE to be anywhere my mommy is, I'm her lil shadow! 

HI MY NAME IS Loretta

I was a stray who walked up to my forever home! I'm mama cat to J.R. & Sue Ellen, who I cant stand! When I was 2, I threw a blood clot from my heart causing saddle thrombosis, which paralyzed me from the back legs down. I'm a fighter! Now I see my kitty cardiologist once a year & am on the same heart meds as humans! Mama says I'm the most expensive outside cat ever!  

HI MY NAME IS Lucy

Hi, I'm J.R., one of Lucy's daughters! Mama thought me & my sister were boys at first when she named us so I'm named after J.R. Ewing (my mom is obsessed with the show Dallas!)! I'm rather annoying & like to sleep all day! My mama tries to make me go outside but I don't like the sun & act like a weirdo when it touches me! So I run back inside before she can shut me out! 

HI MY NAME IS j.r.

I’ve been a Nikon girl from day one! They’ve always just been my favorite cameras! I currently shoot with the D750 with the D600 for backup! I sold my favorite D4 to go opt for a lighter camera! But I secretly miss it so much & am coveting the D5! My favorite lens would be the Nikon 35mm! I love those gorgeous close ups with the 85mm like most do but there’s just something about the 35mm that brings life to my images! And if you’re wondering…I’m a Mac girl too!

Yoga & Pilates have always been favorite workouts of mine! I do my Pilates on a reformer! But there’s just something about hitting the mat & taking 20-30 minutes to just let you mind zone completely out! If you think it’s easy, don’t let it fool you! You’ll wake up muscles you didn’t know existed all while trying to keep your mind zen! My cat Smokey knows when it’s yoga time around here & tries to sit on my mat with me! As you can tell by the teeth marks in my block when he doesn’t get his way!

Yoga Practicer

My Carolina home away from home! I love Charleston for it’s southern ways, rich history, good seafood & life on the water! Just like here in NC! I travel there a few times a year for fun & for work! It’s a quick 6-7 hour trip from home! And no matter how many times I go there’s always something new to do!

Give me a good book & comfy spot & I won’t move for hours! I’ve always loved to read! I get so swept away in stories! You’ll find a mix of business, fiction & non-fiction on my shelves! Authors from Jackie Collins, to Zig Ziglar, to JFK memoirs (I’m obsessed with the Kennedy family!), to Joy Fielding & everyone in between! I have about 12 books on my nightstand on any given night!   

bookworm

In my quest for more zen, less stress & a lot of relaxation I started trading my coffees for caffeine free herbal teas! I still drink a coffee (half decaf!) every now & then as a treat! But teas have become some of my favorites! I love to try different ones! Peppermint tea, orange & spice, & apple & cinnamon are some of my favorites! A Ginger tea with some honey & lemon is great after meals for digestion!
