About The Photographer

Amy was born in Atlanta but mostly reared in East Tennessee. She is of Scottish and Italian descent who grew up in a small unincorporated town called Midtown, tucked between Harriman and Kingston, southwest of Knoxville. She currently lives in Lakeland TN with her husband Terry. When they first moved to Memphis, she lived in Midtown, oddly enough. There is a huge contrast between the two Midtowns. One a constant lively party, the other quiet, ‘tight-knit’ working class community.

She received a BA in Communications from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she concentrated on visual arts and photography. She was active in many university activities: WUTC 88.1 fundraising event and Admin Assistant, Student Orientation Board, Sigma Kappa and the College Access Program for students with physical and learning disabilities. She served on the board of the Smoky Mountain Professional Photographers, Currently East Tennessee Professional Photographers in Knoxville. Some of her wedding photography has appeared in local and regional publications such as Premier Bride and I Do for Brides magazine.

She has worn many hats through the years: darkroom manager, retail photo-finisher, sales, custom album designer, digital retouch artist, event photographer and a phlebotomist. Yes, a certified vampire for Covenant Health in Knoxville TN. She presently active volunteering at  Brooks Museum of Art as a Docent and Memphis Germantown Art League.

Things about Amy that most people don’t know about. In 1968, she is one of the survivors in a deadly gas main explosion at a daycare center in Hapeville Ga.
