Aside from having a passion for photography, I have a passion for my faith, my family, friends, and fitness. Photography is the fifth “F” in my life that brings color, joy, and excitement to my little world.
I just adore brides and babies and everything in between! I love chasing the moments. I love finding the emotion. I love capturing memories. And I love using and learning new techniques to do just that. I am a light chaser and light maker (when it’s dark!).
I am here for YOU to capture your memories. It is an investment that will last a lifetime! I am here to create these memories for you that will protect the investment. I am committed to giving you great value for your dollar.
It’s always so hard to talk about oneself…so I created a special survey to help you get to know me a little more.

Name: Amy Atkins
Favorite Color: Yellow, mint, and light soft grey!
Describe Your Style: I like to chase the sun and create timeless photos with clean and sharp edits. I like my images to be something you want to see on your wall in HUGE prints and canvases!
Describe a moment when you are happy: Snuggling all the kids on the couch on a rainy day. Church! Times when I realize something I have been trying to learn and I finally “get it”! When the house is clean, the kids are in bed, and I have some Food Network shows saved up to watch with my hubby! Playing with the kids when is pretty fun, too, when they are getting along. I love being with my friends and laughing for hours on end. I love cooking Pioneer Woman recipes!
Favorite Food: It really depends but typically one of our home meals usually wins…Taco Salad, pizza, or steak and potatoes
Recent Hobby: I like to grow food and garden. I would love to grow a one-ton pumpkin one day to win a prize!
Equipment I use: I am a Canon girl! Two 5D Mark III, 50mm 1.2, 30mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8, 100mm 2.8 macro, two speedlite 600ex-rt
Biggest Regret: Passing up opportunities to grow because I was afraid!
Biggest Accomplishment this year: Running the Nike Woman’s marathon in San Francisco!
Favorite Coffee Drink: Plain ol’ coffee! Or a Mocha or Dirty Chai as a splurge 😉
Secret Weapons: My husband to be the stabilizing force in my life. And…A whistle necklace for children sessions, dog toy squeaker, and my crazy noises and a prize box for all ages! 🙂
Confessions: I cry behind the camera during most father daughter dances, and all of the mother son dances. I don’t think I could ever live without mustard as a sandwich option. Or pickles. Wall-E is one of my favorite movies.
