My Blog bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    You found me! I started business in September 2009 after working with newborns for 6 months but wanting something more. I wanted the freedom to flex my creative muscle and also do more than just newborns! Almost 5 years later I'm back at where I started, specializing in newborns but adding kids and families in there too :) I have retired from weddings and occasionally mentor or teach a workshop by request. Ever since the day I started, even before calling myself a business, I have worked at bettering myself through various mediums of continuing education in my field. I believe that no matter how long you've been perfecting your craft, no matter who you are, you are never done learning, and you will never know everything :)

    I'm a mother to 4 beautiful little girls, and have been married to my high school sweetheart since July 2009. I am a mother, and I am a photographer. But I am not a "mom with a camera". I am a photographer who also has children ;) I take my job- my CAREER, very seriously and respect the industry in everything I do. I'm also a pretty bad blogger, so that will explain why it's constantly out of date, but I try!! :) Visit my website or connect with me on Facebook to stay up to date with session sneak peeks and vital information. Thanks for stopping by!

Kent’s 1st Birthday {Findlay Toledo Ohio Baby Toddler Child Photographer}

The last time I saw Kent, for a session or in person was for his newborn session. Although I’m friends with his parents, Brittany & Nathan, I watched him grow over the past year on Facebook- and grow he did! Kent went from a few weeks premature, to a 27 pound 1 year old! He’s grown into a sweet, smiley boy and you can tell that his parents are just over the moon to have him:)We had fun recreating a few setups from his newborn session just to compare size and how much everyone has changed:)He also KILLED his birthday cake (that mama made!) and was probably my best smash-cake baby to date. It seems like I always end up with littles that aren’t interested in the cake and hate getting dirty- but Kent devoured his:)We are going to do some more after the weather straightens up too- out on location. Enjoy these pictures, along with some of the “Then & Now” comparisons that we did! Happy birthday Kent!! Oh yeah- and the ultrasound shot is NOT an indication of a sibling coming- LOL!! After I shot it, I told Brittany that people may get the wrong idea, but that’s NOT what it is!! Haha!!:)It’s Kent’s ultrasound picture:)Okay that’s all!

30,000 Facebook Fan Giveaway!

I am crazy excited to announce a spontaneous giveaway in honor of reaching thirty THOUSAND Facebook followers! Dudes!!! I don’t know where you all came from over the years, but I am BEYOND privileged to have so many awesome people knowing who I am, and wanting to follow my work. So, so awesome. I’ve been in business for about 4 1/2 years, but this particular Facebook page is only 3 years old (as of a couple days ago). When I went from Photography by Amy Cook, to Amy Cook Photography back in 2011, I created a new page at that point- so reaching 30k in 3 years, is just mind boggling to me. I must be doing something right, so thank you SO much:)

In honor of this insane milestone (I’m still wrapping my noggin around it, especially after just hitting 20k back in November) I’m going to give away a couple of prizes. I think there may be something for almost anyone:)

1. One free copy of my Newborn E-Guide. The guide is 154 pages including my favorite vendor list, 19 poses covered, sections on props, lighting, white balance and more, 28 videos including some covering Photoshop, and free future updates as they come available. It is absolutely the closest thing to an in-person workshop, and was designed as such. The guide is protected by copyright and is not to be shared with anyone else. You can earn extra entries if you purchase the guide this week- a refund will be processed if you win! Valid for purchases during the giveaway only. Click here to be taken to the shop to purchase the guide- it is $400 but can be purchased this week for $350 with code “30kfans”.

2. One free portrait session with 30 digital files. Limited to maternity, newborn, infant, child, family, senior, couple. I do not photograph parties, boudoir, pets (unless included in a family session). Session will take place in July, August, October or November 2014 based on current availability, or you can save it until Spring/Summer 2015.
Session will still be subject to any regular booking policies including:
-current availability (Mon-Fri only, will not be shooting during already-booked periods or maternity leave, etc),
-I will not travel more than 45 minutes to a location of our mutual choosing,
-unedited files will not be released,
-and any files beyond the 30 included will be subject to charge of $15/file or $200 for all if you wish to purchase them.
-no call no shows will forfeit session and will not be rescheduled
-may only be rescheduled once due to client needs- bad weather doesn’t count, don’t worry:)
-reschedules will be subject to availability at that point in time and may be forfeit if availability doesn’t line up due to client canceling.

3. One free 1-hour Skype session- this can be questions about newborn photography, business in general, Photoshop, a portfolio critique, or whatever you would like to “pick my brain” in.

*********
Pay extra attention to this part- there is a different widget for each prize, so you only need to enter for the prize or prizes you are interested in! That way, I’m not drawing a free portrait session for someone who lives 1000 miles away, or an E-Guide for someone who isn’t even a photographer but was interested in a portrait session, etc:)You may enter 1, 2 or all 3 of them if you like and the prizes apply to you! YOU MAY ONLY WIN ONE PRIZE so if you are drawn as winner for more than one, you must choose:)

This giveaway will end at 12am on Saturday, March 22nd. Best of luck, and than you again so much for being a fan:)Add amycookphotos@gmail.com to your email address book to make sure you get my email if you win, and it doesn’t go to your Spam! A new winner will be drawn 48 hours after the first winner has been notified if they don’t respond. Winners will be notified on Saturday, March 22nd at 12 Noon EST.

So much love,
Amy Cook

Max, 6 Months Old! {Ohio Baby Photographer}

Sweeet sweet Max:)I’ve already called dibs on this little boy to wed one of my girls! Bahaha:)Isn’t he precious? And he’s got two super adorable older brothers too. Good genes, I tell ya:)Max is one of my sweet baby plan babies. He keeps changing so much, every time I see him. It’s such an amazing feeling to document these sessions!

2-Day Newborn Photography Workshop {Ohio Newborn Workshop Mentoring}

When I scheduled this class originally, I think I overestimated how good I was going to be feeling at 34 weeks pregnant:)It was still an AMAZING 2 days and the 3 super sweet ladies that attended were wonderful and eager to learn.

On Friday, we had 2 full newborn sessions with Selah and Emery. Then on Saturday the girls got to assist and do some hands-on posing themselves while we worked with Noah and Harper.

We worked on beanbag and prop posing, parent and sibling posing as well, and talked about safety, props, colors, studio and parent prep, and more. It was fabulous and I’m honored that they all came to work with me:)Thank you ladies!! Also enjoy some behind the scenes that Amanda sent me!

Darick & Jamie, Awaiting Baby Girl Cook {Ohio Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

I was honored when my husband’s cousin and his wife asked me to document this precious time in their lives, along with their upcoming newborn session:)It was a chilly day, but definitely could have been worse, considering we live in Ohio and winters here aren’t very kind lately!

I can’t wait to meet this little girl and learn her name- dying of curiosity here!!:)Congrats again guys, and see you soon:)
