Little Bray is in my first year program Baby Program in Madison, Indiana and I’ve been loving watching him grow over the past 6 months. I photographed little sister last fall not long after mom here found out she was expecting little Bray and we started planning his sessions then! I love all of the ideas that Sarah and I collaborate on for the sessions — and those glasses? we used them at the newborn session too!
This little sweet pea is my precious niece Allison. I’ve been photographing this sweetie since her newborn session and I love making special time each year to capture the little ones in my life! Here are my favorites!
I was so thrilled to partner with Cara, who owns the Little Golden Fox (a swank little boutique filled with unique finds, upcycles, handmade goodies and classy gifts). Together, we hosted our Amy Horn Photography’s first Christmas mini sessions. The two of us came together this fall to bring the community Halloween mini sessions and due to popular demand, we noodled our brains to create a classy, vintage Christmas set. Almost all of these items are available for purchase in Cara’s shop (and some things are from our personal collection of goodies).
We greeted 17 families for a day filled with smiles, giggles and amazing memories. We had amazing weather for these Christmas Minis, which were held in Milton, Kentucky (just across from Hanover, Indiana) at my family’s farm. I’ve put together a lengthy collection of my favorite images from the day. I hope you enjoy, find inspiration for your sessions and feel the love that is shared between all of these families.
Thank you all so much for making this season truly a blessed one for me. It’s been quite a year for AHP and I’m so excited to see what 2014 brings!
Jamie and Paul came out to my farm for their beautiful golden hour maternity session. Jamie and I have been besties since my sophomore year in college and this stunning momma was the maid of honor in my wedding. I couldn’t be happier for her and Paul and little man Brisby!
I met Cindi and Beckey downtown Cincinnati and drove a short skip over to Friendship Park, which is apparently a part of Sawyer Park along the Ohio River. This mother-daughter duo not only kept me laughing the entire session, but they also showed me the most humbling example of a beautiful relationship. The connection between these two is unmatched, as is their humor. Thanks for letting me capture this special relationship. I’m so honored to help preserve these memories for the amazing people that I work with.
(PS – one of me and the lady herself at the bottom!)
I am just giddy over James and Mollie’s engagement session. They came up to my farm in Dillsboro for their engagement session and we planned a gorgeous country date and sunset summer picnic with an amazing prop of the old Ford! I am so excited for their 2014 Louisville, Kentucky wedding. Between the field, creek and the beautiful golden hour, I’m very excited to share these!
I wanted to share a few photos from when my little California nephew came to visit us earlier this summer. This little sweetie and my husband’s sister live in San Diego, so we only get to visit with Nate a few days of the year. He just finished his first year of kindergarden and started first grade this week. We love this little guy to bits and he’s always so well behaved for his Auntie Amy’s photo sessions! 🙂 I’ll post more from his 6 year old pictures (camping themed!) in a few weeks.
Here are some that we snapped under my favorite walnut trees on the farm. I’m always preaching about taking quality photos of family, so it’s so great when I get to share the photos I’m always taking too!
I loved meeting this sweet little foursome for our mini-session in beautiful Madison, Indiana. This session was at the Lanier home. These cousins were entered into one of my giveaways and received the most votes. I loved their coordinating outfits and the love they have for one another. Here’s Sarah’s heartbreaking (and heartwarming) entry for the contest that she submitted with a photo of then five cousins:
On October 29th, 2012, the lives of these 5 cousins were forever changed. Caroline (striped shirt), was killed in a head start bus accident on her way home from school. Each of Caroline’s 3 surviving siblings (Clara, Cyrus, & Celia) and her cousin (Matthew) have had to learn too young that life is short, and to savor each moment and memory while they can. Photographs are the best way to capture and preserve a moment in time, so please vote for these cousins to win a session with AHP Photography.
I felt so honored that Sarah entered the contest and even more touched by my fans (even other entrants even voted for these kids!) and their response to this entry.
I loved photographing Donatta and Josh’s special wedding day this summer. The wedding ceremony was held at the Milton United Methodist Church in Milton, Kentucky with the reception at the Moose Lodge in Madison, Indiana. It was a simple wedding on a warm June Saturday. I photographed Josh’s younger brother’s wedding almost two years ago (they’re now expecting their first child!) and it was wonderful to see the entire family again. I love all of the details that Donatta and Josh used throughout their day — so much that I decided to do a little blog post about them! I’ll share more pictures from the day in another post.
I was very excited to work with Sandy to plan Reagan’s six month photos. I loved using the fire helmet in our newborn session and was so happy that we used it again! These images were taken at the beautiful Lanier Mansion in historic Madison, Indiana. Here are a few of my favorites.
