The artist behind the camera...

In 2011, Amy's husband gave her a Nikon as a Christmas present and a seat in a beginner's course in photography where she learned photography is "painting with light". That sparked a new passion that still grows stronger by the day.

​As a landscape and nature photographer, Amy has a keen eye for spotting beauty around her, sometimes in the things others miss in a busy life.

She is fascinated by the energy of ocean waves, loves to chase sunsets, and has a knack for spotting and capturing exquisite light. She has a love for wildlife and a heart for conservation.

​A 6th generation native of California, she has photographed many iconic places and hidden gems, especially near her home in the Monterey Bay area. Through her photos, Amy hopes to inspire the same awe she feels on location and invites you into her "happy place" and stand next to her while she witnesses and captures God's wonders one moment at a time. In her words, "I want people to be able to feel transported into my photos for a momentary pause and feel the peace and appreciation I feel in the moments I capture". 

​Amy is a lifelong artist. Her mother once said, "She was born with a paintbrush in her hand". She is fluent in many artistic mediums including china painting, mural painting, cake decorating, and sewing, and had a 20-year career in the face and body painting industry as an artist and instructor both in Southern California and in the Central Coast/Bay Area. While Amy still loves to paint, she now mostly wields a camera to pour out her inspiration. Her painting background has influenced her photography style towards painterly.

​When Amy isn't taking photos she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter along with her cats, pet bunny, and gardening.
