beautifully captured.

about me

Amy Hanen, of Amy Frances Photography, is a Brooklyn based family and lifestyle photographer. 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. 

what I want you to know...

Here is the one thing that another family photographer might have over me. Kids. That’s right, I’m not a mom, but a single gal in Brooklyn. That being said. I have a different perspective on kids and families. I am the cool aunt, the fun babysitter, and the silly friend. I know there are a lot of things you are looking for in these photos, and I understand this is an investment. But I want you to know that your business is in amazing hands. I really do get called the baby whisperer by everyone I meet. I am obsessed with your family, before I even meet you. To me, the connection and relationship comes first. Because after that, it’s all a piece of cake. Let me get down on your kids level. Let me try and be their friend. I mean, I have a fart noise maker that seems to make just about anyone laugh. I want nothing more than to make your life easier for the duration of our session. The moment you are able to sit back and watch your kid or kids be themselves, is the moment I can capture your true joy as a parent. You have a true and genuine love for these little humans that is the most beautiful thing to me. That’s all I need from you. I want to see your unconditional connection with them. Let’s work together to photograph your family how you see them in your mind and heart. That’s all that matters.

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.
