Hi! I’m Amy Hill. I am the owner and photographer behind 627 Photography in Cary, NC. I love to help women business owners tell the story of their brand and business through photos. It’s more than just a headshot, it is a way to show visitors to your website why they want to work with you. In this digital world where we meet so many online, you have to standout and you have to connect!
In addition to beautiful branding photos for women, I also love to photograph + empower high school seniors. I love to make them feel special, confident and happy with who they are. I take time to learn about them and create a fun, custom session that results in the most beautiful pictures they’ve ever seen of themselves!
I am a boutique wedding & family photographer who believes in providing a one-of-a-kind, personalized session experience and artwork that you will love forever. Since 2009 my goal has been to photograph families and couples in a relaxed, joyful and artistic way.
I began studying photography when everyone shot film (remember film?) and I learned the classic art of black & white film processing & printing. There is something so powerful about making each print by hand, each result a unique piece of art. When I switched to digital in 2005, I brought to it my love for honesty in the images I create for works of art you will treasure.
My life with 2 children (12 & 9) and two large dogs is usually pretty crazy, but it’s also full of love and laughter and I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. Next to photography my favorite thing in the whole world is chocolate. Ok, and the beach, and pretty much anywhere there is good food & good friends- life is meant to be enjoyed!
