LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER SHARES SOME OF HER GREATEST CAREER MOMENTS
AURORA–Amy is inspired by everyday people who utilize their talents to encourage others and add value to their communities in genuine, big hearted ways. As a hobbyist turned professional photographer, she forever captures passion through her camera lens.
“This summer I was able to snap a few photos of Buddy Guy performing at Rivers Edge Park in Aurora,” she says. “As I watched him, I could only think, gosh I hope I have as much zest for life at 86 years old as he does!”
On another shoot, as she was setting up the shot of Breyannah Tillman, who plays Effie in Dreamgirls, she asked her to just sing a little something to encapsulate emotion in the photograph. Breyannah’s little something was such a powerful and beautiful sight and sound, Amy felt lucky to be there to document such talent!
In business now for 4 years now, Amy loves the variety of her job. One day she’s photographing actors on stage, the next a local musical festival. Some of her major clients are Paramount Theater, Aurora Area Convention and Visitor Bureau, Renew Salon & Spa, Aurora Chamber of Commerce, Aurora Downtown, The Cotton Seed Creative Exchange.
“It is a great way to get to know my community, and the awesome people who live, play and work here.”
When not working, Amy and her husband Curtis love spending time with their young son and family, and visiting some of their favorites like Blackberry Farm, the rocketship park at Hope Wall School, ice cream at Deri Delight, La Quinta de Los Reyes, kayaking on the Fox River, strolling the Gilman and Fox River Trails, and some social time at Society 57.
