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.

Blue Ridge Mountains { North Carolina Children’s Photographer}

July 29th, 2015 | Children

As many of you may know, I spend about a month each summer as the photographer for Camp Highlander . This year I had the privilege of photographing a family from Baton Rouge when I got here (they are camp people too). About 2 hours before the shoot it rained, which of course left it muggy and wet outside. Add in 4 children, one who decided to have cheetos and chocolate milk in the car on the way to the shoot. The heat and humidity would remind you much of a Louisiana afternoon, we shot for 2 hours in grass, waterfalls and dirt paths. Against all of those odds, the results were pretty great! Here is just one for you to see. (because lets face it, in 20 minutes 350 campers will be waking up and there mommas will want to see their faces.)

Cara + Mike { New Orleans Elopement Photographer }

April 23rd, 2015 | Wedding

It was such a treat to follow Cara and Mike around on their wedding day.
I met up with them at the Audubon Cottages (By the way they said it was an amazing stay, so if you need a place to stay while in New Orleans, you should definitely check it out). We headed out on foot towards the ferry and photographed them along the way.

We missed the ferry, but we met Irvin Durand who drove us to the Algiers Courthouse. Irvine is a NOLA cab driver who is the self proclaimed ambassador of NOLA Goodness. Please click on this link to watch a video of him showing @GoodTraveler some of his favorite places.

Lambs, Pirates & a Unicorn { 2015 spring short shoots }

January 23rd, 2015 | Studio News

What do lambs, pirates and a unicorn have in common? They are all a part of one of our upcoming short shoots.

You can visit this website to book any of these shoots:
Your fee will be due at the time that you book your appointment. Once you book, we will send you an invoice.
Approximately a week and a half after your shoot, the photos will be uploaded to a gallery and you will be able to use your credit to order prints, digital files or albums.

January 31 – Valentines Shoot
This year we have finally scheduled a time for a Valentine’s Day short shoot. Above is a basic sample for the shoot. I have ordered some giant heart balloons to use on a simple black or white brick background as well as the shown (btw this is just a small section, this background is much bigger than shown) Due to the messy nature of glitter, I cannot set that up in it’s entirety. It is tons of red glitter ribbon on a white background with the red glitter sprinkled on the floor.
You will view the photos immediately following your shoot, and take them home that day on a thumb drive. The $75 includes 3 digital files and you will have the option to purchase them all if you like them. You can use those digital files to order custom valentines online (we will give you some suggestions of vendors).

March 7th – Spring Short Shoots – $250
Sample photo coming in about a week! Imagine your precious kiddo(s) in a field playing with a precious baby lamb. These photos will be simple, natural and so so beautiful!
The price includes your 15 minute shoot and a $200 credit towards your order.

March 15th – Pirate Shoot – $200
Look for a sample photo soon! Think pirates of the Caribbean with some south Louisiana flair. We have a big wooden boat and are in the process of making some really cool sails. The sessions will be shot in Zachary. The $200 fee includes your 15 minute shoot and a $150 credit towards your order.

April 12th – Unicorn Shoot – $250
Willow is back for this shoot which will take place at a new location in Zachary. Your $250 includes your 15 shoot with Willow and a $175 credit towards your order.
