Amy's Story

"Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart." - Rumi

 I photographed Weddings and Portraits for many years. I loved every beautiful couple and family that I worked with. This also allowed me to continue upgrading my photography equipment for wildlife and our beautiful planet. 
​ Most recently, I have moved to Kalispell, Montana and opened a gallery and gift shop. It is called Mountain Vibes Gallery and Gifts located in downtown Bigfork, Montana. If you are visiting the area, please stop in and say "Hi."

Thank you for viewing my website!

 As a little girl, I began taking pictures of the animals on our family farm in Ohio. I loved making everyone laugh by capturing the cuteness of kittens playing and pigs rolling in the mud. This fascination in photography carried with me through college where I bought my first manual 35mm camera with a 200mm telephoto lens. After graduation, a move to Wyoming opened up a new door in photography. My career in Wildlife Biology led me to such places as Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and the National Elk Refuge where there were more photo opportunities than I ever dreamed possible. Wyoming has also been a great central location for me to travel to many other areas in the West. My passion for our beautiful planet and all the living things on it is captured in every image. Each picture that I take is with a "love for nature" that is evident wherever they are displayed.
