Skipton Family and Commercial Photographer
Amy Pitfield is an award-winning photographer passionate about storytelling and known for her colourful, natural family photography and her relaxed, informal branding photography.
She has 7 years of experience photographing families and business owners, many of which come back regularly. Amy offers family shoots either on location or in the family home and commercial photography including personal branding, lifestyle product photography and interior shots.
Amy is based in the Skipton area of North Yorkshire but covers Ilkley, Settle, Harrogate, Barnoldswick and the surrounding areas.
"Growing up in The Yorkshire Dales, I was forever snapping my family in the beautiful surroundings and always knew photography was going to be a big part of my life. While studying at Sheffield Hallam University I developed my passion further and acquired the technical skills essential to produce timeless images.
In 2015, after spending some time nannying, I started photographing families. Through working with young children, I realised just how precious childhood is and how quickly it passes so it's vital to capture it through beautiful images that tell the story. This love of storytelling slowly progressed into not only telling the story of childhood, but a business owner's story too so I expanded my services to include relaxed commercial work for small businesses.
My goal is to make people feel good about themselves; from the initial buzz during the shoot, to the elation and emotion experienced when they see their photos to the sense of content and happiness at the fact that these memories are now documented and can be shared and enjoyed again and again.
I strive to make the whole photography experience an enjoyable one and aim to provide photographs that bring joy for years to come."
So much fun"You have created some amazing memories for us and those photos we will always treasure. During the photography session we felt at ease with you and it was so much fun. You have such a way with children and my baby boy absolutely loved you."
