Amy Tripple

Amy is the creative heart and mind behind Sweet Shots.  She sets the tone and casts the vision for providing the best DSLR photography training for parents anywhere.

She is a nationally recognized, award-winning child and family photographer with a client base of well over one thousand satisfied families. Trained as an educator, she was a professional teacher prior to becoming a mom, and enthusiastically weds her passion for teaching and photography in her Sweet Shots classes for parents.

Amy approaches photography from the perspective of a camera-crazy mom, because she’s been one since the day her first baby arrived in 2005. Three children and a booming photography business later, she is one of the foremost experts on child and family photography, and has a deep desire to empower parents to capture their own families.

Amy believes the fleeting moments of childhood are precious memories waiting to be captured, so why not capture them beautifully?

Amy lives in the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove and her studio is located in the nearby village of Lemont.
