when was the last time you were photographed?

"When we fall in love with someone there's a moment when we take a picture of that person...that we carry with us forever."

let me introduce myself...

Hi! I'm Amie, and I am a portrait photographer based outside of Philadelphia, PA.  I have photographed mothers, sisters, wives, and friends for years. Women of all ages, shapes and skin tones—women exactly like you. But I have a secret, I hated being photographed.

I know what it's like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty. I would see an unflattering photo of myself, and it would ruin my week. It wasn't until I had my own portrait taken by a professional, that I actually liked seeing my photo. That's why my mission is to help women see their own beauty, to prove that you can love having your portrait taken and ADORE YOUR PHOTOS. 

No matter your age, weight and body shape, you deserve to have gorgeous photographs of yourself which you keep forever and proudly display. You deserve to be seen. You deserve to be remembered. 

I would love to photograph you.

what kind of portrait are you?

NO MODELS. JUST REAL PEOPLE.

 

"having never done a photo shoot before..."

"Amie's coaching was amazing! She helped guide me on adjustments and movements that were the most flattering for my face and body. Amie truly enjoys what she does and it comes through as she cheers you on from behind the camera. Kind of like your own personal fan girl! It was a lot of fun to work with her."

f.a.q.

I feel so self-conscious in front of the camera. Will this even work for me?

I understand how you feel. Honestly, I never liked having my portrait taken. It wasn't until I trusted a friend of mine, a professional photographer, to take my portrait. I'm so glad I did.  I finally loved a photo of myself. Finally, I had photos of me alongside my family that I was proud to be in. I realized the recipe for a beautiful portrait: a skilled photographer and trust. It's that simple. And I want to offer that to you.

You don't need to worry about a thing. We will have a professional hair & makeup artist there to get you ready for your shoot.  We will stye your shoot with our wardrobe full of gorgeous outfits. Then I'll  be there to help you pose in the most flattering way and under the most flattering lighting. During the session, you will be given very simple directions on how to pose. Trust me. This will be the best portrait experience you've ever had.

I really want a digital version of my images. Can I have them?

Of course! Every image you purchase, I give you a digital copy. So you want to share those images on social media - have at it! They won't be water marked - so they'll look great on your instagram feed.

I want to book a session! What is your pricing?

Wonderful! Please fill out the contact form below and I'll send you our current pricing and packages.  There is a session fee of $350, that is due at the time of booking - that reserves your day and your hair & makeup artist.  The rest is up to you.  You are under no obligation to buy any photos. A la carte pricing starts from $275 and collections start at $1200. Only purchase what you love.

 How do I prep for my session? Can I bring my own makeup?

We're so excited to have you come in an have this amazing experience.  We don't want you to worry about a thing!  Just show up with a clean face and hair - we'll take care of the rest.  If you would prefer our artist to use any of your existing makeup (foundation, etc.) please bring it along. I have sensitive skin - so I understand the need for special products.  

I've never had a makeover before. Will I look like myself?

We want you to be comfortable with the makeover process. Love makeup and glamming it up! We are there for that.  Prefer a more natural, minimal approach - we love that too. Either way, we want you to feel beautiful, feel confident, and, most of all, feel like yourself.

What if I don't like my photos?  Do I still have to buy them?

Yikes! No! We want you to love your photos, so if there is something you don't like about a photo - please, let us know.  We are here to help. But there is no minimum purchase.  Only buy the photos you love.  Most people love too many : ), BUT If you don't like any, no worries, we can reshoot your session free of charge.  If you don't want a reshoot, we will gladly refund your money.  We want you to love your photos - and love the experience of having your photo taken.
