“I never would have bought it for myself,” Amy Tripple said of her first DSLR camera. It was a gift from her parents—and a bigger gift than any of them could have imagined. As she started taking snapshots, friends began asking her to do the same for their kids. From there, the business snowballed, and today, Amy Tripple Photography
is thriving. She has her own studio in downtown Lemont, Illinois, and her images have won awards from the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. The wrinkled lines on a newborn’s tiny feet, the mischievous grin on a little girl’s face—all her shots are beautiful and packed with tiny personalities.
