Picture of AmyWelcome to my blog…

Thanks for stopping by  and welcome to my blog. Here I chronicle the images & stories behind the images taken by me, Amy Martin. I also like to humor you with the “never a dull moment” everyday life of an artist trying to make a living doing what she loves while juggling 3 kids, a husband, & a growing business (and a small zoo).

My hope is to brighten your day & inspire your life.

2018 Valentine’s Day Short Shoots

January 10th, 2018 | Children, Studio News

This year we will have two different backdrops to choose from. One is “Love is Sweet” and the other is “Picture This” you can choose one or both for your shoot. I still have finishing touches to make to both sets (especially picture this) but I don’t like to book appointments without you being able to have an idea of the sets. For the picture this, I will have several prop options, such as a letter board, different heart signs, and some fun Photo Booth-ish props. It can be as classic or as fun as you choose, based on your outfits or props.
We will also have real cotton candy on the day of the shoots! Include them in your photos or have as a sweet treat when you’re done.

Jan 19-21 (If this books up we will add some additional dates)
$70 – 10 minutes 3-5 images. (one backdrop)
$95 – 15 min 5-10 images (both backdrops)
Prices are for one child, please add $15 per additional child for siblings for either option.

After almost 10 years, we said goodbye to our studio downtown at the end of the year. Our new studio is not ready yet, we expect to be in there for March. It will be in Mid City on Government street near Baton Rouge High. In the meantime I am working from home, which means that these shoots will take place in my home in the garden district. Disclaimer: it is not big, it is not fancy, but it will get the job done.

To book an appointment, please email me at amy@amymartinphotography.com or text/call 225-235-4999.

Cajun Christmas Minis { Baton Rouge Children’s Photographer }

November 7th, 2017 | Uncategorized

Due to the big set up using live cypress trees inside the studio, there will not be a sample of the backdrop. However, think of the beautiful, moody, moss covered swamp with it’s cypress trees, old wood and add a little splash of red, this is the inspiration for this shoot.

These shoots will be Nov 17-20 at our studio located downtown in Baton Rouge. 667 Laurel street, on the corner of Laurel and 7th.

These are true mini shoots, it means that they will be around 10 minutes each with additional time added for sibling groups. The photos will be online within 2 weeks, you can download them directly to your computer and purchase prints if you choose to! The price for the shoots include digital files:
$75 for individuals
$125 for a sibling group
up to 3 kids, add $10 for each additional subject (this will include a group shot and individuals).

The great thing about having an indoor studio set is that we are not limited to daylight and aren’t at the mercy of mother nature! These shoots are prepay, once we set a time, you will receive an invoice for the shoot, once it is paid you are officially booked. The shoots are non refundable but if your child gets sick, you can keep the amount paid as a credit towards a future shoot.

To reserve your spot, email us at amy@amymartinphotography.com with your date and time preference. We will get you as close to your desired time as possible or email you with the closest available times.

BONUS: If you refer a friend who is new to Amy Martin Photography and they book a shoot, you and the friend will also get a $20 print credit (this doesn’t sound like much, but the print prices are super cheap ex: $2 4×6, $5 8×10 etc). Just have them tell us your name when they email us and you also email us to let us know!


Introducing PlayDates { Louisiana Children’s Photographer }

September 20th, 2017 | Children

Our first open Playdate will be on October 8th in the evening. It will take place at a farm in Slaughter, Louisiana. Please make sure that you read the description below on what to except on a PlayDate shoot. The shoot is limited to approximately 15 children. The farm shoot is $75 per child or $125 for sibling groups (up to three kids), there will be a 4:30pm & 5:15 time slot available. If you have a group of friends and want to schedule a private shoot, this location is available for that as well. Please send us an email if you would like to schedule a shoot!
amymartinphotographer@gmail.com

What is a PlayDate?
A PlayDate is not a structured photoshoot. It is a get together of friends or strangers for a period of time while I shoot them documentary style. Letting the kids be kids results in interactive candid moments. And, if we are lucky, we get a few of those genuine smiles that cannot be forced when we are telling them to smile at the camera.

Where are PlayDates?
Generally a PlayDate will take place at a playground or park where there is a place for the kids to be engaged without adults involved. Occasionally we will have special location playdates such as a farm, museum, zoo etc. If you book a PlayDate with a group of friends you can choose the location.

How much are PlayDates?
The prices range depending on the location, and number of children attending. Generally the price ranges between $50- $100 per child or $100-$150 for a sibling group.

What do I get?
The price you pay includes the digital download of your files. Approx 2 weeks after the shoot all of the photos go online together and you can download the ones you choose.
