My name is Amy, I live in Portland, OR and I am a Freelance Portrait Photographer .

 There is nothing better than taking a photo that tells a beautiful story. This is why I am a photographer.

I often get asked where I came up with the name of my company. It is my play on the derivation of photography.”Photo” is derived from Greek – the Greek word “phos” means “light.”

The word “graph” also comes from a Greek word meaning “to draw.”
A Photograph is therefore a drawing made with light.

I always like to create a beautiful story in a photo shoot that expresses the moment in a aesthetic manner unfolding like a story. I thought writing with light sounded cooler than drawing with light.
