When it comes to having photos of our loved ones, it is more than just a picture, it’s about capturing a moment or documenting an experience. And that is what Amy Slusher does.
Amy is a photographer that specializes in Senior portraits. In writing this blog post, I realized that this is a full circle moment in my friendship with Amy. We met when her youngest, Sage, and my oldest, Carson, were in preschool together. It’s been fun watching the kids grow, and now they are Seniors in High School. How did that happen? Where did the time go? Seriously, I’m wondering how these two little people grew up and are almost out of the house??
When starting a new business, it’s not uncommon to take a subject, such as photography, and start out broad….just taking photos. However, becoming successful is often the result of finding a niche that works for you and honing in on it. This is particularly important when it comes to being a photographer. Becoming a Senior Portrait Photographer was a natural progression for Amy. She has alway been very involved with her children’s activities and volunteering at their schools. So, not only does she know the students, but their parents know and trust her! Plus, Amy has the perfect combination of talent, creativity, vision and patience (which is often needed when working with teenagers)!
What Inspires Amy:
- Family…She tries to hold onto every memory she can. The present becomes the past too quickly, and it’s important to cherish those images through the years.
- Everything! Seriously! She can drive down the road and is constantly taking snapshots in her head and scouting locations. Her kids are sooooo tired of hearing her say how great location after location is.
- Other photographers and creatives! Amy feels so lucky to live in a place with so many incredible artists and creatives! She truly loves the opportunity to get to work with them, firmly believe in Community over Competition.

In looking at the future of “Amy Slusher, Photography”, Amy wants to do more than just portraits. Senior year in high school is all about experiences. How fun would it be to document those experiences with friends and teammates? Think about homecoming tailgate parties or a trip to the pumpkin patch or Christmas tree farm. The possibilities are endless.
