Who am I?
i am:  all or nothing. passionate. intense and silly at the same time. a photographer. a musician. a mother of four.
i know: life is a journey, and no one gets out alive.
i want:  to visit Switzerland. to raise my boys to be happy and secure. to live in love.
i wish:  cardio was easy. i could clean my house Mary Poppins style. i could find the remote.
i hate: broken crayons. mouth noises. the word “moist”. that i am disorganized. legalism.
i miss: seattle. living in a college dorm. my uncle.
i feel: everything
i crave:  mexican food. connection. warm fuzzies.
i wonder:  why popsicles and wonderbread have similar logos. if there’s something to astrology after all
i love: the smell of pine trees. walking the waterfront in seattle. steamed clams. brand new crayons. my jeep wrangler. ellipses. the memory of Peter’s airplane. the smell of my grandparents house. my portrait lens.
i always: overanalyze. order fajitas at a mexican restaurant. tilt my head to the side when i look in a full length mirror. forgive.
i am not: organized. laid back. patient.
i believe: in art. in impulsiveness. in self-exploration. that God uses a Mac.
i dance:  with my boys in the kitchen.
i sing: a funny version of “take me out to the ballgame”
i cry:  when i remember the day Dan Marino retired. when I am sleep-deprived.
i don’t always:  put the coffee creamer back in the fridge. know where my keys are.
i write: on napkins. a blog.
i lose:  everything.
i never:  get as much done as i think i will.

What’s in My Bag?
I get asked a lot by fellow photographers, aspiring photographers and even clients… What’s in my bag? What kind of gear do I use? What lenses? Here’s the list!

Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 7D, Canon XTi, Poloroid One Step (I got this camera when I was in second grade. I enjoy taking pictures with it here and there at creative sessions or for personal projects, and then editing digitally.)

Lenses: Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, Canon 85mm f/1.2L II

Computers: Mac 20 Inch Display, Macbook Pro

Bag: Lowepro sling back pack

Other Stuff: i-phone (until I get an iPad, this is a way for me to show images to potential customers when I’m not carrying my MacBook Pro), Lightroom 2.0, Photoshop CS3 Extended,  Aperture 3, ProPhotoBlogs (my new weblog template! coming soon!), Simplenet (my favorite hosting company)


All sessions, weddings & events are booked on a first come first serve basis upon receiving the reservation fee and the contract. Reservation fee/deposits are required for all sessions & weddings to reserve your date & time. Deposits are 50% of the total package value and are needed to secure your date. The remaining balance will be due 2 weeks prior to the date of your session or event.

All reservation fee/deposits are non-refundable.

Due to the nature of photography services, there are no refunds, or re-shoots. All sales are final.

-Artistic Reservation Policy-

Artists reserve the right to edit and release only those images deemed creditable as professional in quality and within the Photographers’ artistic standards. Images are selected and edited at Photographer’s discretion.

-Session Cancellation Policy-

Two days (48 hour) notice must be given in order to re-schedule a session. There is a $50 fee to re-schedule and any deposit made will be transferred to your new date & time.

Please be on time to your session. I cannot always guarantee being able to stay longer for a scheduled session that is late. Your time will not be pro-rated.

-Copyright Notice-

Please note that it is illegal to scan prints, right-click or screen shot online proofs or other online images featured on the web site or the blog, make copies from prints, sell or alter images received in CD or print format.

All images indefinitely remain under copyright of Amy Zumwalt Photography unless otherwise noted under contractual agreement.

Booking and Investment

In order to book a session and reserve your date, a $200 reservation fee is required. The reservation fee covers the time and talent of the photographer. All portrait sessions include up to 2 hours of shooting time.

Two to four weeks after your session, we will set up a viewing appointment to go through your images.  At that time, you can order your prints, album, and/or digital files. Packages start at $350.
