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.

Unicorn Mini Shoots { South Louisiana Children’s Photographer }

April 8th, 2014 | Children

These are already half full! Get your spot today!
unicorn photoshoot Louisiana

 I am so excited to share this session with you! The idea came from one of my great clients and it has been our brain child for almost 6 months. Since the demand for theses sessions is high, appointments are first come first serve. If you want a spot, PLEASE PLEASE make sure you go to the  website to reserve your time slot, this is the only way to ensure that everyone fairly gets their appointments. If you call me or email me and I cannot get back to you for a few hours or the next day, then the appointments may be booked up. For this reason, I am only accepting appointments online for the unicorn shoot. Below is more info and instructions on exactly what to do. We are already considering some dates in June for people who weren’t able to get in on these dates.


 Due to high demand, we will have to be very strict about the length of the session. If you book 15 minutes, that is what you will get. So if you have a daughter who is shy and may take a while to warm up be sure that you keep that in mind with which session you choose. This session will work best for children over 2. Willow is a live animal, please take that into consideration if your child has allergies or is easily spooked.


 There are two different types of sessions:


Short Shoot- $200 this is a 15 minute shoot and includes 5 digital files or a $125 print credit.


 Experience Shoot- $350 this is a 30 minute shoot and includes 10 digital files or a $250 print credit.  This sessions allows more interaction with Willow (The unicorn). If you have more than one child, this shoot is ideal.


 One week after your shoot, the photos will be online! You will be able to choose your photos that are included with your package, and have the option to purchase more. You can share your gallery information with any of your family members and they can also order photos.


 The shoot will take place at a private residence in Zachary Louisiana. (exact address will be sent out once your payment has been received and your appointment is confirmed). There is a small barn on site that I plan to have tented on the inside with vintage sheets, we will have other outdoor areas that may have some different looks, and of course the option to just keep it natural like the sample photo.


 I will have a few accessories available (such as crowns)  that you are more than welcome to incorporate into your shoot but no costumes or wardrobe options. Everyone’s tastes are so different and kids are in all shapes and sizes that it will be impossible to accommodate everyone. I will send outfit recommendations to everyone who books an appointment.


 Sessions are Non-Refundable for any reason, in the event of inclement weather we will reschedule the date. If we cannot accommodate you on the rescheduled date, you will receive a studio credit that may be used towards a future portrait session.

So now that all of that business stuff is out of the way, here is what you have to do to get that coveted appointment.


 Step 1: You will need to go to http://amy-martin-photography.genbook.com


choose your session type and pick a date and time. Be sure in the notes section to put how you plan to pay (Online with Visa/MC or by mailing a check) and also the names and ages of the children coming.


If you are trying to book a 30 minute session and it won’t let you, there may only be 15 minute slots left.

Step 2 IMPORTANT! You will not pay on that website, once you have your appointment set you will go to www.amymartinclients.com and there is an option that says “make a payment” You will click that and in the notes section please put your confirmed date and time.  Or you can mail a check to me ( Amy Martin,6553 Maple Street, Zachary, LA 70791) . Payment is due immediately, if you are paying online with a credit card, you have 24 hours to make your payment, if you are mailing a check, you have 5 days to get it to me. After this time period, your appointment will be opened up to others who are waiting.

DO NOT PAY unless you have already went to genbook and received an appointment time.


 I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you!

Unicorn Mini Sessions { South Louisiana Children’s Photographer }

March 15th, 2014 | Children

More info coming soon on this exciting mini shoot! What I can tell you is that it will take place in Zachary and that these are really just a tease. We went to Willow’s (the unicorn) house to shoot a couple photos to show, but there will be much more flair on the set the day of the shoot. This shoot is ideal for a single child or sisters. It is more geared towards the imagination of little girl and not your typical smiling at the camera photo.
I will be updating you as soon as I have a date!


Johnny Come Lately { New Orleans Newborn Photographer }

I cannot take credit for that clever title, that is all his momma.
I had the privilege of shooting this little guy when he was 4 days old (i think) on a beautiful day, at Audubon Park  in New Orleans.

A fresh new life, beautiful afternoon light, gorgeous historic Oak tree…. What’s not to love???

Okay I know it is a little cheesy but I couldn’t help it!!  I had to edit this post to add that my husband was cracking up and said it was so funny because it looked like the chick to the left is telling the other one a secret! I burst out laughing.

Cage was nice enough to show me around his favorite hangout.  We had a great time exploring some wide open spaces in the country.
The picture to the left is just proof that I am hilarious :)

This may or may not be borderline cheesy, I am not in the loop sometimes, but I made him do it. Hopefully he doesn’t find it embarrassing.  Senior portrait photography Louisiana
