Hello, I'm Amy!

A Yorkshire photographer, a wife and a mother. As you've probably guessed, I prefer to tell stories through images so I've included a few that sum me up quite well.

I grew up in North Yorkshire, moved to Derbyshire for ten years and now back to where I started, in Skipton, where I live with my husband, two children and the laziest hamster I've ever known, Max.

I'm happiest when I'm on a beach, exploring nature, watching a sunset, dancing, or throwing myself into something creative like painting, cake decorating or striving to get a perfect photo of the moon through a telescope (one day!) I get goosebumps multiple times at every wedding, get totally swept away with the emotion and will probably secretly cry at some point too.

Growing up in The Yorkshire Dales, I was forever snapping the beautiful surroundings and always knew photography was going to be a big part of my life. I developed my passion further at Sheffield Hallam University and acquired the technical skills essential to produce timeless images.

In 2015, after spending some time nannying, I started photographing families and realised just how precious childhood is and how vital it is to capture it through beautiful images that tell the story. This love of storytelling naturally led to capturing beautiful wedding day moments before, more recently, telling the story of businesses too and expanding my services to include relaxed commercial branding work for small business owners.

My goal is to document memories with feeling. I want people to look back on their images and relive that moment all over again. I aim to make the whole process a happy one; 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 moments in time are now recorded to be remembered and enjoyed for years to come."

 

Now you know about me, I'd love to know about you...
