Amy Simkus Photography | About

Hi!  I'm Amy.  Thank you for visiting!  So ... you'd like to learn a little more about the girl behind the camera?  Well, I am happy to share my story! 

I was born and raised in an itty-bitty town in northwest Ohio.  I was blessed to grow up along the shores of beautiful Lake Erie. I am a proud wife to my Army veteran husband, and proud of our oldest son who recently enlisted in the US Army.  We remain busy raising our two little girls and our labrador retriever who is still working her way through the puppy stages ... ten years later.  :) 

I consider myself small, yet mighty.  My Pinterest board is overloaded with farmhouse DIY projects and countless recipes which would be impossible for me to attempt all in one lifetime. I am a member of the church choir and love to bargain shop ... for anything. 

Though I've spent most of my life with a camera in my hand, photography found me professionally in the spring of 2016.  In addition, I have spent sixteen years working as a medical social worker.  Helping others has always been a passion of mine, and it only seems fitting that the skills I have gained in both fields complement one another. 

I specialize in natural light portraiture photography of children, families, high school seniors, and weddings. My style is light and airy ... cheerful and clean while maintaining a timeless, natural representation of my client.  And I like to LAUGH ... A LOT.  I believe that every session should be comfortable and FUN.  I use strategic posing techniques designed to flatter every client and to capture many unique images during a session.  Each session is customized to suit the spirit and personal inspiration of my client. 

So ... let's chat!!!  It is truly my goal to provide you with images which capture the essence of YOU! Contact me today to discuss your goals, and we can together create memories to last a lifetime and images to pass down through the generations! I look forward to working with you!
