Year in Review
2018 was a great year for Amy Meng Photography. I continued to develop my voice as an artist and discovered my three words to describe my style as simple, timeless, and soulful. I took many online photography classes. I enjoyed offering more studio sessions. I was selected as a Qualified Newborn Photographer in the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International https://apnpi.com, and in the top 10% in the Shoot and Share Contest http://www.amymengphotography.com/blog/2018-shoot-and-share-photo-contest-video. I completed 42 sessions including 11 newborn, 8 family, 2 senior, 2 maternity, 9 headshots, 9 milestone sessions, and 1 graduation/engagement. I photographed a few events and lots of family and macro work. I even photographed my teenage son once this year (see photo below). Thank you all who entrusted me with your photos this year!
For 2019, my sessions have changed to offer a variety of options at different price points depending on your needs. If you are interested in viewing my availability, buying a gift certificate, or booking a session, please go to https://amymengphotography.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php. In 2019, I will also be offering a limited number of outdoor portraits. If you want to receive an email when these outdoor sessions become available, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and type Opt In. Please email me if you have any questions.
Here's to creating and capturing memories in 2019!
Did you get a new camera for Christmas? Are you making it your goal in 2019 to be more creative, social, learn something new, or just get outside? In 2019, I have decided to lead Photo Walks. I have been listening to Brene Brown who says, “Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgment, sorrow, shame.” To be wholehearted people, we must allow ourselves to create. Everyone has the ability to create. Photography has healed me in several ways. I want to share my passion for this art form with you and create a safe place for us to be vulnerable and use our creativity. On these walks, I will not be teaching photography. If you want to learn more about photography, I suggest taking a class with Scott Bean http://www.ufmprograms.org/ShowSchedule.awp?&Search=INSTRUCTOR&Target=U0NPVFRCRUFOMjEx&Title=Courses%20Taught%20by%20Scott%20Bean, checking out Creative Live https://www.creativelive.com, or ClickinMoms https://www.clickinmoms.com/cmu/. I will, however, be available to answer any questions you might have about photography. I plan to bring my kids with me on these walks and get them in the action too. You do not need to own a DSLR camera to attend the walk. It is all about supporting each other and your creative journey. I will be sharing the dates for the Photo Walk on Facebook and on my blog. If you are interested, make sure you are following me on Facebook so you do not miss out. https://www.facebook.com/amymengphotography/

Children are welcome. Our goal is to capture what we see in a creative way. You are welcome to join the Facebook Group MHK Photo at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mhkphoto/and share what you created.
