You know how when you're little and you loved animals, you always thought "I'm gonna be a Veterinarian when I grow up." Yep that was me, growing up on a farm in Lodi, WI.
Being out in nature was, and still is, one of my favorite things to do!
Instead of a Vet, I became a Labor & Delivery Nurse at St. Mary's for 18 years,
one of the coolest jobs ever! I honestly thought I'd retire there...
until I picked up a camera!
I've been married since 2001, and we have 1 amazing teenage son and a spoiled Labradoodle Rescue named Gus.
When my son was about 7 years old I bought my first DSLR camera. I was trying to pick up a new hobby, and was deciding between a camera or a guitar. I'm so glad I picked a camera, little did I know how much I would LOVE it! What started out as just for fun has now been a growing business for over 11 years! In 2019 I quit my job at the hospital to take AmyHeltPhotography full-time, and I'm loving every minute of it! I'm the type of person with a lot of patience, and an eye for detail and I want to connect with you to make heirloom quality art for your family. It's so much fun!!!
Want to know what my favorite photos are? When I capture you feeling relaxed and enjoying yourself! I want to help you create your vision, and capture all the details. From couples loving on each other, to quickly growing little ones, stolen smiles and silly laughs, that's the good stuff! I can't wait to work with you and get to know you.
Thanks for checking out my page!
The sweetest rescue you'll ever meet!
Gus is a Labradoodle who was surrendered by a Breeder when he was 1, and then had a wonderful foster Mom who loved on him and house-trained him. He was a year old when we got him and our Black Goldendoodle Jax taught him how to "be a dog". They were the best of friends for 3 years! Sadly we had to put Jax down at 5 years old due to Cancer, and now Gus has learned how to be a single dog, and he's really good at it! He loves playing with his ball hardcore, begging for human food, going for walks, and following me around 24/7! He's pretty shy to strangers, but oh so soft and snuggly! I hope you get to meet him sometime!
