I'm Amy Hicks, and I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based in Fredericksburg, Texas. I love natural light and photographing during the golden hour at sunset especially! My deepest desire is to create beautiful images that are classic, natural, and truly paint your unique story vividly!
     My hubby and I were married in March of 1999, and currently are blessed to reside in one of America's most iconic and loved small hometowns, 
Fredericksburg, Tx. I graduated nursing school later in life, as a registered nurse in 2010. We enjoy spending time with our 4 energetic daughters ages 21, 19, 9, and 7. We also are so very in love with our Yorkshire Terrier, Chuy, who loyally nannies our 2 youngest girls. When I am not photographing, I love scouting out new portrait locations in the Texas Hill Country and shopping with my 2 teen daughters. My time is filled with fun while teaching my 2 youngest to read and write, as well as helping to write social media posts for our local moms group: MOPS/MOMSNEXT. When I need some time to refresh my soul, I love getting out in God's nature and photographing landscapes, especially flowers and sunsets! On my best of days, I get to do this all! I am thankful you are here and would love to connect with you!

     From the moment I receive your contact form, I strive to provide the utmost of most personable experiences catered just for YOU! Let's meet over coffee or chai tea, and chat about your very own personal day! I would love to get to know you more by hearing all about you! If you are ready to book then, we can also discuss reserving your portrait session date, when to pay your session retainer fee, review the official contract to sign, and I will also gladly answer any questions you might have. I also would be more than happy and quite excited to discuss color coordinating outfits, and piecing accessories together!
     BONUS: I have a specialized style guide I email clients upon booking, for portrait sessions that helps guide my clients through suggestions about seasonal wardrobe, recommended stores for shopping, bringing pets to be photographed, ring cleaning, and much more! 


     Leave the location scouting all to me!  I am always looking for new and creative locations to photograph here in the Texas Hill Country and beyond. I carefully scout out the best lighting and location for the most beautiful backdrop. I also offer lifestyle shoots in home, outdoor sessions on client's property, and eagerly travel to new locations that my client desires. Upon my client's request, I make arrangements ahead of your scheduled shoot day to assess the lighting and new location.  I love to travel and am happy to discuss photographing at a location you wish as well! 


     This is the fun part! I get so excited to share my knowledge regarding what colors and types of outfits photograph well! I offer a style guide to my clients upon booking full sessions which give helpful advice on where to shop, what colors of clothing to shop for amidst the seasons, how to color coordinate for an entire family, and tips for choosing accessories even! 

The SEssion

     Time to relax and have some fun! I recommend to arrive well rested, and to enjoy at least a light snack if at all possible before your session. I will be there to  gently guide you along every step of the way through a handful of easy core poses! No previous experience in posing is a plus! I will kindly direct you how to stand in the most flattering way, and where to place your hands. Candid and pictures in motion are great fun as well! Feel free to let me know ahead if there is anything you would like for me to watch out for, or if you even have a preference on which side to be photographed on. I love to play your favorite music at your request! 


     Sneak peeks are delivered within a week of your photo shoot! Typical turn around time is 4-6 weeks, depending on session type, calendar, and number of clients booked ahead. I edit each picture with great care. High resolution JPEG images are delivered once they are all edited via an online private gallery for quick and easy downloading.  After you receive your gallery, you can then choose which picture is your favorite for your professional print that is included in your full session. All professional print and product orders can be submitted directly through me, and print pricing can be referenced via the online gallery. This ensures a more timely delivery than the online third party gallery. 


     One complimentary professional print up to a size 8x10 is included in a full session. A high resolution private gallery is delivered via email for downloading all of your images easily. A social media size option is also available online in the gallery for a smooth transition to sharing on social media. Clients can choose between different types of papers for professional prints(deep matte, silk, metallic, and more).I also offer professional print products such as canvases and metal wall art.   I am happy to discuss your portrait needs for specific wall arrangements in your home as well! 

Cherished Memories

     I am so very grateful for the career I have, and I absolutely love each and every client I am gifted the opportunity to work with! I love helping clients, who desire to capture their precious moments, and who desire to intentionally stop and pause from life's hectic merry-go-round. I find great joy in being able to give them beautiful photographed memories that they will treasure and keep for a lifetime.

Daus Peach Haus

location inspiration

     Located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Daus Peach Haus is uniquely nestled among tall pine trees, forming a perfect circle around a peaceful pond. A vast peach orchard sits towards the back of the property and showers the background with light pink blossoms in the spring. Wooden adirondack chairs are scattered all through out the grounds for those desiring to sip their wine in a quiet and serene setting. Flowers and meticulous landscape dot the property as well. Upon arrival,  an old model truck sits ready for a perfect photo opportunity.

     "All the World is Welcome Here" -Lyndon Baines Johnson
     Wildflowers put on a colorful show through ­out the warm months at LBJ park. In the spring, bluebonnets and Indian blankets fill the open spaces. Bison and long­horns, roam the meticulous grounds among the wooded creeks. Historic cabins built in 1800s serve as beautiful backdrops.  Giant oaks are scattered all along the relaxing Pedernales River. Pecan and live oak trees give the park their array of red, orange, and gold colors in the fall.

lady bird park

location inspiration

     The crown jewel of Fredericksburg’s recreational parks is the 150 acre Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park. Rolling hills and a rambling live oak creek set the stage for a beautiful day. It is a place to rest, relax and enjoy nature. I have a special spot I love here that allows for gorgeous, soft, and glowing backlit photos at sunset. 


Look and feel your best


One outfit change is included in all full sessions. I recommend saving your most dressy outfit for the second half of your shoot, closer to sunset.I have a specialized style guide I email clients upon booking, for both portrait and engagement sessions that helps guide my clients through suggestions about seasonal wardrobe, recommended stores for shopping, choosing accessories, ring cleaning, and much more! 

For the Littles

It is best to photograph little ones after they have had a restful day! If at all possible, it is also wise for them to have had a meal or a light snack before they arrive as most shoots are close to the dinner hour. It is a great idea to bring something to keep little girl's hair pulled back away from their face, especially if it is a slightly windy day.
