About Me

Hi I’m Amy and I have a love for capturing and appreciating moments.  I went to Villanova University (Go Cats!) and took a life-changing Japanese elective my Junior year which put me on a path to teaching English in Japan after graduation.  I attribute that “fish out of water” year long experience of travel and discovery to be the thing that solidified my adventurous free spirit and love of teaching.  I got my Masters in Elementary Education and Masters in Educational Leadership from TCNJ and spent 11 incredible years teaching in Hillsborough, NJ. I felt an inexplicable yearning to step out of my comfort zone once again so I took off on this venture in 2012 leading to the creation of Amy Pinard Photography, LLC. I'm blessed everyday to work and collaborate with inspiring people. I'm very excited to be sharing some of those stories with you next month in a podcast called “Champagne Dreams” with my co-host Kelly Gorel. I live in Long Branch with my dog, Brielle (loves to nap) & look forward to having you join my journey through this site.  Let’s work together soon; I would love to help you tell your important story!

When not taking photos I can be found sipping lattes and looking longingly out windows (see below).

"The mission is to help entrepreneurs and families tell their stories through artfully captured moments that reflect their authentic selves.  

All images are

a celebration of life."

"Aside from taking amazing photos with a smile, Amy has an eye for capturing the beautiful moments in life you can never plan or stage. I would highly recommend her for any photography needs you may have." - Yosef H.
