Denise Maternity Session (favorites!)

To celebrate Denise reaching full term *today* I thought I’d post some of my favorites from her maternity session. We met just outside of Lawrenceburg, Indiana at the couple’s home. Denise and Zak drove me down a windy little road to a beautiful covered bridge with a babbling creek behind it. After they got their feet wet with a few test shots, the tension disappeared and it was like Denise and Zak forgot I was there.

We arrived back to their home just in time for the sunset to blanket us in warm light. It was here that Denise really let her personality, and her deep love for baby Grace, shine through these photos.

Congratulations to Denise and Zak, who will be expecting little Grace at the beginning of June, when I will visit the family again for some newborn photos. (can’t wait!)

Baby Paityn

I had the pleasure of meeting this tiny baby girl when she was just 10 days old. Her grandmother and mother arrived a little early at the photoshoot with this wide-eyed little girl and we spent some time snuggling and doting over Paityn.

I met them in Milton, Ky., near Madison, Indiana, where I do most of my indoor infant shoots. I was finally able to try out some of the headbands that I made a while back and my pink tutu on a newborn!

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. For all of my favorites, visit the Imagine Photography page at www.facebook.com/ahornphotography

Thanks, and enjoy!

A big thanks to my friend, Robin Hampton, who made this adorable hat!

davis family (sneak peek!)

The best part about the weather breaking for the season? Well, it is certainly not all the rain we’ve been having! But the rain has helped the beautiful flowers come into bloom and the grass be extra green. Although we had to rearrange this shoot last minute to miss the rain, my session with Alicia and her beautiful family went off without a hitch! The weather was perfect, the family was up for anything and these awesome children had the best smiles for me! Between playing dress up and racing monster trucks, this was a fun-filled session!

We met at the Historic Lanier Mansion in Madison, Indiana for this Saturday evening shoot. Although the river had flooded the back lawn of the mansion and high school prom go-ers in eccentric dresses were abound, there were still plenty of great nooks in the gardens as backdrops.

I loved working with these guys and hope to again in the future!

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

He LOVES monster trucks! 🙂

I have so many favorites of her! She loves to play dress up and put her tinkerbell outfit on for our session.

megan’s mini-session

What’s not to love about a sunny Sunday? Well, there’s even more for me to love when I got to spend it outside photographing a mini-session for Megan! Walking through crowded downtown Madison, Indiana.

This graduating art major needed some headshots for her final portfolio. After we captured the obligatory headshots, we ventured around the block for some more artsy, fun ones that really captured her personality.

Here are some of my favorites:

spring has sprung!

I love that spring is finally here! One of my favorite parts of spring is being able to have photo sessions outdoors again. The grass turns green, the flowers bloom and the kids LOVE running around.

Here are a few of my favorites from an impromptu session at a birthday party for these three children in Bedford, Ky. My cousin throws a party celebrating all three birthdays at once. I didn’t have any photos of little Ryland yet, so I took the opportunity to rally the kiddos. I’m hoping to have the same success at this year’s party (which happens to be tomorrow!)

If you are wanting memorable family photos, I will travel within two hours of Dillsboro, Indiana for family photography sessions. For booking and rates, please email at amyjohorn@gmail.com

schafer family favorites

Here are a few of my favorites from my Sunday afternoon session with the Schafer family. The session was at the Schafer home in Canaan, outside of Madison, Indiana. It was the first time in several years that this entire clan came together in the same place! It was great to watch them all smile at one other and enjoy one another’s company.

introducing mr. and mrs. hill

I’ll admit. (sometimes) I cry when editing wedding photos. Not all the time. But it’s happened at least once for both weddings I photographed in February. (seriously)

There was someone so special about the way Josh and Velvett looked at each other in these photographs. Their intimate get-a-away wedding to Gatlinburg, TN was so sweet.

Despite all the chaos of traveling, out of town guests arriving, hotel issues and forgotten wedding sand (Josh was a hero for going back to the hotel and getting it!), this couple stayed so focused on the reason they were there in the first place. 🙂

Here are a few photos that I’ve processed that I’m pretty in love with.

groom and a go cart

I feel so blessed to have been chosen to capture Madison, Indiana couple Josh and Velvett’s special day in Gatlinburg, TN. I was invited to a pancake breakfast with the girls the morning of the wedding (delish!) and was in for a real treat when the groom and groomsmen informed me they’d like their “getting ready photos” riding go-carts! After photographing some from the safety of the observation deck, I ventured into a double cart to have some “live-action” I haven’t jumped head-first into editing this part of the day, but did enjoy this shot of the husband-to-be.

Look for more to come from this wedding. What.A.Blast!

beauty meets ugly

Sometimes it’s not just the subject that makes the photo, it’s all of the other elements contrasting with her! This is Laura’s favorite photo from our session together. Maybe it’s her natural body language or maybe it’s her unmistakable beauty paired with the dingy alley surrounding her. Whatever it is, she shines in this photo.

who had the best christmas card this year?

How many times do you get a Christmas card in the mail and it’s off-center, over-exposed, the dog is licking the baby and junior has his eyes closed? Okay. Maybe that is an exaggeration, but you get the drift. Now, think of the cards you’ve gotten over the past year that made you stop and smile. Or better yet, say, “That’s a great picture!”

Family photos are not just a great way to share cheer during the holiday, they are something to be treasured. My heart literally breaks when people share with me that they haven’t had family portraits since a child was a baby (or before others were born!).

I believe everyone has a right to great photos to share, display and cherish. Family photo sessions are particularly popular in the fall and book fast with the upcoming Christmas card rush. Take advantage of the fall foliage or even the spring blooms by booking early. Photos can be an intimate family photo, extended relatives or even with pets!

childhood photography is a must

Although it is pretty common for many mothers/father to own a digital camera (either in person or on a phone), there is still a need for fine photography of a child. Mom or Dad can be in charge of the day-to-day candid capturing, but there’s something magical that happens when I photograph children. I have a tradition of photographing a nephew of mine each year on or near his birthday. Then I make a photobook of the session. The two-year photos he painted pictures for his mother and grandmother and I captured it. The canvases made great Christmas gifts and Cody had a lot of fun doing it! I’ll post more from the paint session later.

I wish more parents, aunts, grandparents, etc. would adopt this tradition. Although Cody is only two, our family had a wonderful time looking at this year’s album compared to last years. This is a great tradition to start early – or anytime. My biggest regret is that I didn’t do a newborn session with him to start off the collection! If you’re interested in a session, don’t hesitate to e-mail. Photobooks can be included in a package, if you’re interested.

put a ring on it

kissing is fun

One of my favorite awkward moments in photographing couples is getting the kissing photos. Now, this isn’t awkward for me, I love it! The couples, however, have a more difficult time adjusting.

I’m lucky to have such great, in love, clients. After a few initial giggles and nose bumps, the kisses get longer and sweeter.

Hats off to my kissing couples!

Welcome!

First of all, I want to thank you for visiting Amy Horn Photography. You’re here for one of three reasons 1.) you love photography 2.) you need photography 3.) you love me! Well, you may be visiting this site for all three reasons, which is perfect in my eyes.

This Website has been a long time in the making. I want to thank my good friend, Mike Brennan, for designing this beautiful, user-friendly site (for me and viewers).

Let me introduce myself, I love photography. I often use the word “Imagine” to describe my craft – I want my clients to imagine photography as an art.

I live outside of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and am a photographer and marketing associate for a company outside of Cincinnati, in Northern Kentucky. A lot of my sessions are in Madison, Indiana, which is near my hometown.

To start my site, I’ll be updating several blog entries at once to build my photos for the home page. So I’m dedicating them to the types of photography I do.

You can always interact with me on www.facebook.com/ahornphotography or you can e-mail me at amyjohorn@gmail.com.
