Hi. My name is Amy Masser. I am the mother of two really great kids. I opened Baby Face Photography in 1997 when they were one and three. What was I thinking? Actually, I know exactly what I was thinking. I couldn’t find a reasonably priced creative photographer in the area who specialized in children. So I started taking my own creative pictures. When my friends saw the pictures, they asked me to take some shots of their children. Pretty soon, strangers were calling for pictures. I took a few classes to learn the basics of studio photography and Baby Face Photography was born! I have filled my studio with child-sized props and wardrobe, many of which are original pieces I designed and created myself. BFP was designed to cater to young families. At BFP, it is understood that sometimes it takes a lot of patience to get the perfect shot..
I think what sets me apart from other photographers is my personality. You can see it in my children as well. We are a perfect mix of goofball and rockstar. My sister says I relate so well to children because I refuse to grow up myself. That coupled with my ability to appreciate the moment at hand. Just because the shoot isn’t going as planned, doesn’t mean I am not taking pictures. Sometimes a great pout can be the perfect shot. I love to read people and engage them. I try to open them up and bring them out. I do this even when I am not behind the lens. I love to get a reaction. I entertain myself by giving the perfect compliment to a complete stranger and watching their body language change. I am always looking for the most beautiful angle or expression on every face I see. Children are by far my favorite subjects. I think it’s their honesty that is so beautiful to me. A close second would be a parent holding their child. That is the picture of true love.
I absolutely love my job. Thank you to all the parents who continue to bring their beautiful families for pictures. Watching your little ones grow has been a constant joy. Thank you for sending your friends for pictures and allowing me to continue to do what I love. See you soon.
