beautifully captured.

about me

Amy Hanen, of Amy Frances Photography, is a Brooklyn based family and lifestyle photographer. Having gotten her start in the wedding industry as a second shooter, Amy’s focus has always been the moments in between. The little flashes of emotion that you might miss if you aren’t paying attention. Her passion lies in documenting her families exactly how they are, right now.  Amy’s photos aim to capture real emotions in an artful way, rather than posed portraits. She meets her clients as they are in their most comfortable space to become part of their world, and not the other way around. She sets the scene and documents your connection in the most natural way possible. 

about the sessions

These portraits aim to capture your true expressions in the moment. Everyone is photogenic in my eyes, and my goal is to show that to you in your session. This is the story of your family, so let it reflect you. I will help the process along and set the stage for you, but after that I fade back to let you be you. You'll want to look back at these photos and remember exactly what that tight hug felt like. You want to remember how those laughs and giggles resonated throughout your home. This is a chance for you to connect as a family and not worry about everything being perfect.  If you are looking for some sit and smile photos, we may not be there right fit. If you are looking for something more real that captures your family how you are, we might be new best friends. But for real, most of my families become my friends. We grab brunch, I watch their kids, it's the best.
