I am one of a few female photographers in Chicago area, specialized in fashion, models, weddings, commercial and events. I was a registered nurse with ICU experience. But with passion in art and photography, I quit nursing to pursue photography as a full time job in 2003.
As a woman, I know "make up" and "fashion" by nature. I style most of the photoshoot myself. In addition, I am highly skilled in photo editing.
And I was voted " The Best Photographer in Chicago" by the Knot Best of Weddings Magazine.
My studio is located near Gurnee area with great outdoors and a natural lake at backyard. Most of the outdoor images in the gallery were done here. Even the studio is an hour away from downtown, it is very easy to drive to. All models and make up/hair team I've worked with, expressed they enjoyed the drive from the city to visit the great nature by my location.
Models that are new or wanting to update their portfolio, please contact me. I also do comp card. I accept paid assignment only. Trade shoot could be considered under special project only.
Below are testimonials from great people I have worked with.

My first time working with Amie was a true pleasure. She is extremely professional, but keeps a relaxed environment in her studio. She gives you some direction but lets you branch out and be creative. Being an artist myself, that was very appreciated. She is very prompt about delivering the photos, so I was able to show them off in a timely fashion. I look forward to working with Amie again soon!

Amie is a breathe of fresh air!!!! She truly has such an amazing eye, and was so sweet and professional through our whole shoot. It was an honor to work with her. I loved the fact she is another female, she doesn't look to just shoot your butt and boobs like some do in the industry.
Through out the whole shoot she made it fun, along with making me feel comfortable. If you are looking to shoot with her... Do it! I promise you won't regret it!

This designer is impressed at how Amie knew just how to capture the essence of each look...to lovingly "herd" the whole crew to the exact spot for the lighting, backdrop, water, seagulls, tall "savage" grass, clouds...she has an amazing eye and the rare people skills to make everyone comfortable.
I am completely blown away by the results! You have excelled all our expectations....YES you Amie receive an A+ in J-na Couture Photography!

"I have recently had the pleasure of working with Amie and it was one of the best shoots I have every had. She is so easy to work with and so professional from the time I came in until I left she was kind and considerate. A rare quality these days! Her photography was even more spectacular. I have had over 250 photo shoots to my credits and the one with Amie resulted in some of the most spectacular images I have taken. When you combine her enormous talent with her down to earth personality she is a must work with anyway you can. I am so happy to have had that opportunity and hope to work with her again any chance I get. Thanks for being AWESOME!!"

"What an amazing photoshoot we had!!!
Not only did you come up with an incredible location but you also instantly knew which backdrop would complement a particular garment. I have no clue how you managed to create such perfect composition while shooting in the dark but you made it work!
Your work truly did justice to the whole team - Allison (the designer), Theresa (the MUA) and myself. You were also a pleasure to work with and I felt completely comfortable around you and the rest of the team. Thank you for an unforgettable shoot, hopefully with more to come!"
