When you walk into a home and see breathtaking photos of their family hanging on the wall it's a true reflection of that moment in their life. I want to be that photographer and family friend that captures those moments for you and so I strive with each client to create art for their home they can cherish for years to come.

Family & Lifestyle Portrait Photography 
Lifestyle photography is geared towards clients who want to preserve milestones in their lives. These milestones are important to artistically capture so that they can be displayed in the home, or shared with others at holidays.

Dripping Springs and Driftwood

Some of my favorite places to capture  is in nature or at the family's favorite venue. Dripping Springs and Driftwood offer gorgeous locations full of character and charm. Urban settings, the home, or nature are often the backdrops for such sessions. Location scouting is also included in any of the packages.

Maternity & New Beginnings Photoshoot
Motherhood is quite the journey. As you prepare to welcome the new addition to your family it's important to reflect on who you are and who you will become as a new mommy or welcoming a new child to the family.
Maternity sessions are called New Beginnings because they are the beginning of the next chapter in a family's life. This gallery displays some of my favorite images throughout the decade in and around Dripping Springs of women who have entrusted in me to capture these special milestones in their life.

Senior Portrait Photography

Senior Portraiture work is often done with several wardrobe changes at a variety of locations. Natural lighting as well as studio lighting is used for these photos. It's so fun to capture Seniors before they go off to college or onto their next adventure. 

Yes! The gallery we send you will give you access to download all the images from the session.

We like to really get to know each of our clients and truly tell their story. We photograph at a variety of different locations. We have several locations that are brimming with a variety of beautiful spots that will truly inspire you.

The most important thing to remember during a session is to be yourself and enjoy the moment. Trust in me to bring capture the moments and the inner you.

Gypsy Pearl Studio prides itself on creating unique, one of a kind sessions that truly capture the emotion and spirit of the lifestyle session. I like to take the time to bond with each family, Senior or couple to really get to see what their vision is. 

All of our sessions include an Online gallery with your edited images and access to download all images online. A custom USB can be purchased as well as albums and prints. Session turn around time is normally 2 weeks.

Contact us at or through the contact form and we can give you more information on setting up a call and chatting about your session. From there we send a link to book the session.

Yes, we do travel within 50 miles of Austin for a small travel fee. We love photographing in Dripping Springs, South Austin, Driftwood, Buda, Kyle and San Marcos.

We highly recommend ordering prints through our professional vendors, but it is not required. The difference in quality is HUGE when it comes to ordering through a local print company and a professional lab, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints! The photo sessions are hosted on an online gallery that also has ordering options.

From our first email down to the finished gallery you can expect professionalism and true artistry. Attention to details and lighting is key in getting a beautiful moment captured, but making sure you and your family are comfortable in front of my lens is truly the secret.

"Our photographer for life."

Amy is by far one of the most talented photographers we have worked with. Not only does her talent capture the perfect moments, she makes the experience so enjoyable. Her ability to make you laugh, relax and have fun behind the camera is unmatched. We have used her for our family pictures, daughters senior pics and our business headshots. All of the photos turned out stunning! Her work is impeccable!"

Pardinek Family

Let me tell you-she was a breeze To work with and made me feel so comfortable."

"As any 7-8 month pregnant woman in Texas, I was a nervous about how this shoot would go and the photos would turn out. She is so good about posing you, right down to the details- chin, lips, hands, hair, whatever! She brings out the beautiful in all of her clients and makes all of the photos look so magical! These are by far the most beautiful photos we have ever taken. Super impressed with her ease, professionalism, and control during the shoot. Plus she's the sweetest person! I CANNOT recommend anyone more highly than Amy.
