HELLO! (you started singing Adele didn’t ya!? )
It is very evident that I love photography, so let’s skip that stuff – let me introduce you to the face behind all of those images!
I’m Amara. I laugh a lot, I hold VERY lengthy concerts in my car, I was born and raised on a farm with oodles of animals my entire upbringing. I rode horses, quads and anything with a motor, showed cattle, had an array of animals from hedgehogs to sheep. I love coffee, popcorn, snowboarding, anything vintage, and am a very distracted cook. I own two purses, but I can’t tell you where they are as I carry my wallet (which I lose frequently) under my armpit. Clutter gives me anxiety, I sweep the floor perhaps all to often, I don’t own a TV, and I feel like I go through a break up after each series I finish on Netflix. My family is large, loud, hilarious and beyond talented (I am almost sure we were all destined to be artists), I have four beautiful nieces and two nephews, and the most incredible man, Shawn, by my side on this journey they call life. We reside in the middle of nowhere, with 7 beautiful quarter horses, 4 mini horses with big personalities, one lovey pup named Penny, 2 cats (Toby & Johnny), 2 budgies, and 8 chickens. I LOVE being outside, mowing the lawn, riding horses or elbows deep in the garden.
Ten years ago I graduated from The Western Academy of Photography and made this my life. I never dreamt for one second photography would take me all over the world, introduce me to such amazing people and fill that cup so full. So, if you feel like laughing, getting your photo taken, and becoming a part of my photo family, send me a message. OR, if you want to see how random my life really is, head over to my personal instagram account @amaradirks and more work stuff @amaradirksphotography
Thanks for stopping by!
Oh, and I love to travel. Anywhere. Let’s go!
