I was given my first camera when I graduated from college, a Nikon FG 35mm film camera. I had several lenses, filters and other gadgets in my camera bag. I spent a great deal of time hiking around New York photographing nature and landscapes. I took a hiatus from photographing nature when our children were young to only snapping shots of messy children faces and special occasions, often setting aside my Nikon 35mm film camera for the easy pocket digital camera.  As our children became active in sports the pocket camera could not capture the fast-paced action I wanted.  In 2010, I received my first Nikon Digital SLR and my enthusiasm for photography was renewed!

The capabilities of the digital cameras were overwhelming! I wanted to better understand my equipment so that I could take advantage of the technology.  It's one thing to know how to use an advanced camera, but it's another to understand the art of  photography: composition, lighting, depth of field, etc. To enhance my knowledge, I completed a one-year program at Middlesex Community College and earned a Certificate in Digital Photography. I am continuing my development by participating in workshops and courses, including the New England Camera Council Annual Conference at UMASS Amherst.  I am a member of the Merrimack Valley Camera Club and the North American Nature Photography Association.

I enjoy photographing nature, landscapes, wildlife, pets, special events, sports action and casual portraiture.  My absolute passion is photographing sports, especially my own children in action!

Just received pictures from Amy and we love them. She photographed my daughters hockey game and then provided great action photos for us to choose from. Odering was very easy. So happy with the entire process. Thanks Amy!

I’ve had the pleasure of having Amy photograph my children in various sports from youth to high school over the past few years. Recently she took action shots of my daughter’s hockey team, the images she captured were amazing! Amy’s prices are very reasonable and photos are delivered in a timely fashion. I’d highly recommend Amy... five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amy did a fantastic job with my son's Senior pictures and captured some really amazing shots. She made the whole experience fun and relaxing and was very flexible with scheduling and accommodating a time that worked for us. I highly recommend Amy to anyone searching for an exceptionally talented photographer. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you Amy for such a wonderful relaxing and fun experience. You have such a
talent for capturing the perfect picture. We loved all the pictures of Bret and the
hard part was choosing only one for his yearbook.
