ABOUT AMY

"I absolutely love photographing kids and teens. My heart is to connect with and draw out the beauty and inner spark that I perceive in each individual I have the pleasure of capturing. For me it's all about catching that expression in the eyes. I've been in business for twelve years and am still deeply in love with the magic of creating a portrait. It just never gets old."   - Amy Wenzel
