Amy Cooke Photography

"My favourite photographs are always the unplanned ones; the ones where the person completely forgets the camera is there. The ones where people are truly in the moment with their loved ones.

For me it’s about taking genuine and authentic photographs, capturing a truthful image of what it feels like to be there. Quite often surroundings such as a person’s home, or favourite family spot are where people can be themselves, tends to capture a scene more honestly. It also makes every shoot I do unique

I think it’s a real privilege to be invited into the important occasions in people lives, and to offer them memories to keep. I hope it delivers the same precious feeling I get when I look at those photographs that my dad took – all those years ago!"
