About me


about me

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive: to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
--Marcus Aurelius

Hello!  I’m Amy Albertson, a Ventura, CA-based photographer.

What moves me?  I live for my family & friends, the sun, rain, night sky, delicious food, coffee, wine, travel, laughing, my dog, movies, trees, the ocean, dessert, home, music, creating and art—mainly photography.  I love my art.

Be. Here. Now.

I value photography because you can, in essence, freeze a moment in time, so that you can look back on it forever.  I want to document that everyday magic in your life.

Your portrait should tell a story, whether you’d like to be surrounded by nature, enveloped in gorgeous light, or in your kitchen baking a cake, I want to give you a finished product full of emotion—feeling—and uniquely you.

Contact me and we’ll come up with something creative and beautiful.  I love to photograph couples, singles/headshots, engagements, weddings, high school seniors, children, food, families, boudoir, pets, and equestrian or anything else you can dream-up.
