I FINALLY have my blog back up and running.  It may take me some time to get into the habit of posting again, but I am so excited to try.  I cannot tell you how much I have missed this and I think it will be an uplifting thing for me to maintain.  (Let’s hope I keep this momentum!)

Here is the updated business info… as I am trying to update the blog!



Happy Anniversary to me!!!! (And the hubsterdude!hahaha)

Teacher and Sudents


For most of you that know me, you know that education is so so important to us.  Not only for molding your profession.  Professional Photographers go to school, executives go to school, and Teachers go to school.  In order to be a professional we ALL have to go to school.  This is how we provide either an awesome product or service to someone who has come to us and is relying on us to do just that.

For years we have complained that our school district does not bring in enough money to support programs and teachers that teach our children every day.  For years we know we have run short of funding for those essential programs for our children.  In the six years we have been in this school district we have seen HUGE growth for programs and teachers.  In 2005 our district held an Override Election to raise money to support activities and programs for our children.  This March we are doing it again.  The district is asking for a continuation of this Override to continue to fund essential programs such as all day kindergarten, art and music.

Please visit for more information on the Override and how you can help.

This sweet lady and her K-9 companion came in because she needed an image for a book cover.  I think that Surie did a good job modeling but Kim… what can I say?  She is just gorgeous!  She really picked out a lovely color combo that matched well with her pooch and really set her eyes off!  What a gorgeous couple!

Various Vacation

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

So I just do not have time to work on any of these… Is this going to end up like our trip to Hawaii?  Only the photos that go on the blog are edited and saved?  Hahha.  My husband is asking me the same exact thing!  Buuut…  While I am buried in seniors, commercial clothing shoots, and my normal clients… THIS teaser will just have to do!



The first person to call us (520) 568-5999 and tell us the NAME of the place in photo #3… (the one with the BROWN stuff in it)  gets a complimentary session with Amy Jamieson Photography!

Lady Liberty!

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Ahhh How can you NOT want to do this?  We drove to Jersey’s boats to head over to Liberty Island.  We bought passes to go up into the pedestal.  We were so blessed that our children got to listen to the audio recording and learn so much about Lady Liberty!  No one was in the torch room or in the pedestal while we were there… it was a dream!  It is just SUCH an amazing site!  I wish the sky was clear… but this is the best we could do!

They have started tours up to the crown again.  If you have the opportunity… do it.  It is an amazing feeling to capture!

Sorry for the delays!

We have been having Internet trouble… and I so wanted to showcase our family vacation photos and all the new sessions we have had in the short time we have been home!  It has been a whirlwind!  I wish I could say vacation was relaxing but visiting Maryland, Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and D.C. all in 12 days was pretty amazing and CRAZY!

Our kids were champs and even though we did not bring a stroller… we BARELY made it through the whining and crying that their feet hurt!  Hahah  Hubby realized that a stroller would have been the best thing, and when we got to a point where we could have grabbed one it was almost too late.  Oh well!  The memories they will have!  Sore feet and bunions by the time they are ten!

In asking the kids what they liked the best, we got a lot of: “I liked Time Square!”  ” I loved the American Girl store!”  and “Oh I loved love LOVED Lady Liberty!”  I know they are young but these memories will last them a lifetime!

My favorite memory?  Or at least one of my most favorite? I have been thinking long and hard about it, but my thoughts keep coming back to the same moment.  And I share it with my daughters.  We spent the evening picking out dolls, and outfits, and matching jammies… Boy do they have a variety there!  Believe it or not, but they have a hair salon (complete with an ear piercing room!) a hospital, a tiny silkscreen area, and snack concession stand and well ROWS AND ROWS of things to buy!  We had to get their hair done, and ears pierced and well EVERYTHING!   We had not been able to book a reservation online for a meal in the cafe, so while we were shopping daddy did it for us in person. 

So, the next day we head back to the American Girl store, and settled the girls and their “girls” at the table.  The waiter came around to tell us how the whole process works, and mentioned the story on the back of the menu.  The story (to make it short) is about a little girl who spends time with her mom in the city as a girls night out.  They enjoy their time and have cinnamon sticky buns (they bring these out as an appetiser so you can read the story.. haha) and as they are walking they share the hand squeeze code for I LOVE YOU (three squeezes) and then I LOVE YOU TOO (four squeezes).  Of course I breezed through the story and thought… oh so cute! 

My older daughter thought the story was cute and said… “AWE! MOM!!!”  Well, my youngest who just turned five is taking a little longer to read these 4-5 paragraphs of history on the back of the menu.  And when she is done, she turned to me and smiled.  “Awe Mom!  That is the sweetest story EVER!”  I hope my girls continue to squeeze not only my hand but each others for years to come!

(Disclaimer… these were taken with my tiny point and shoot!  I did not want to lug my big camera in there! haahaa)

So squeeze your kids!  They deserve it!
