I see you, and you're beautiful.
My name is Audrey Amaro and I’m a Family and Wedding photographer living just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I don’t put a label on the art I make behind the camera. I’m inspired by Life- Life in all of it’s gorgeous, glorious, divine,hysterical, heartbreaking, messy, whimsical glory. I like my photography out of the box and living and breathing in the great wide world. I do not care if your children have matching socks for their pictures. We do not have to wait for teeth to grow in or for you to lose five pounds. Life is quickly moving and too damn short so let’s get out there now. You are glorious just as you are.
I’ve been working my life out behind the camera since my dad first handed me his Canon when I was sixteen. I learned the basics, and became obsessed with black and white film. I thought I would go to college, but met the love of my life instead. We married young and started having babies. It was when my kids were little that I would say my photographic journey began. I wanted to capture every second of their lives. Chubby fingers clutching cheerios- short little sundresses and bruised knees- bathtime, bed time, and everything in between.
I choose to see the beauty in ordinary moments; I choose joy, I choose happy, and I choose to see each and every miraculous passing day as a reason to celebrate. The connections that I make through this art that I love feels like the biggest gift to be given. My goal is to make images that look like the real you. The you that your children know, the you that everyone who loves the heck out of you knows. Forget the magazines that tell you how to be you. You know how to be you, I promise. And you are amazing right now.
I can tell you more about me when we meet, and I hope that you tell me lots about you as well. I'm here waiting, camera in hand when you're ready. I see you. And you're beautiful.
