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.

 Nov 30th The Christmas Horse  $225 ( Includes 5 digital files or $175 print credit): These are 15 minute shoots in Baton Rouge. There will be a horse, should you decide you don’t want him or if your child is afraid, then we can omit the horse. We have shot families with the horse but this is most ideal for Children. The example picture is from the shoot we did 5 years ago. The new session will be in Baton Rouge (you will get an email with the exact location a couple days before) and the horse we are using is a brown horse like the one pictured, he will have a deep cranberry red blanket draped over his back with an evergreen wreath on his neck.  This is the only day for this shoot, so book asap if you want a spot, they will fill fast.

No Mo Chemo { Baton Rouge Children’s Photographer}

October 21st, 2014 | Children

A friend of mine is a nurse at the St Jude affiliate here in Baton Rouge at OLOL, she has been part of Lily’s nursing team. Lily is a 5 year old girl who was finishing her last round of Chemo and at their  clinic, on a day as special as this, they throw a “No mo chemo” party. Lily loves unicorn and had a wish to ride one. Joan knew about my unicorn shoots and contacted me to see if I could help her make it happen for Lily.  Of course Renee (the owner of Willow) and I were thrilled to be asked.  Renee loaded up Willow at  Wildwood Farms and headed down to Baton Rouge.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity and had no idea how far the story would travel. Our local news station wafb  covered the story and Good Morning America picked it up. Check out the story here

July 7th, 2014 | Children

Now booking Sept 6th!! Schedule NOW!

Cherished Portraits will be joining us this time for the unicorn shoot. You will have the option to schedule an Appointment with me ( Amy Martin Photography) or with Cherish.

 We are so excited to share this session with you! 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. We are only accepting appointments online for the unicorn shoot. Below is more info and instructions on exactly what to do. 


 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.


This time around we are only offering the 15 minute shoot, if you want to have a longer shoot, you may book two sessions in a row. If you want to do a change of clothes, you need to book two appointments.


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


 2 weeks 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 Cherished Portraits in Central (address will be provided after you have booked and pay for your shoot).


 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, so please be aware that you have to provide your own clothing/costume.


 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


You will see 2 options for the Unicorn shoot, one for Amy Martin Photography and one for Cherished Portraits. Select which photographer you want to book a session with, then go to Sept 6th and choose a 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.

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!
