Hi! I’m Aimee Hernandez. I’m a dreamer with a strong case of wanderlust in love with the perfectly imperfectly thing we call life. Not long ago, I was a project coordinator for a landscape architecture firm. I loved the creativity of designing beautiful spaces, but I was missing my two beautiful babies! I wanted to see every moment of their lives, capture every instant, every snapshot in time, and hold them close to my heart. Taking that passion and my knowledge of design, I became a documentary and portrait photographer.
Most photographers specialize in weddings or newborn and family photography. I specialize in life moments – all of them! My clients invite me into their lives and trust me to capture memories for a lifetime. That’s a deep responsibility and one I don’t take lightly. It didn’t feel right to abandon them, photographically speaking, after the wedding. Ever the idealist, I threw industry wisdom aside and decided to follow couples through life’s stages, weaving a silver thread of memorable moments for them from engagement, to marriage, birth and family, and every adventure in between.
Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls. Dreamcatchers, macrame and 100 Days of Summer. Anthropologie trips and walks on the beach, love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Salvage denim, antique leather bags, and the first time we watched Moonrise Kingdom.
