Creating beautiful artwork for your family to cherish is more than simply pushing a button on a camera. I offer wardrobe consultations for all sessions to ensure that the results of your session match your vision. Wardrobe can make or break the overall look of a portrait, but doesn't have to break the bank to be beautiful! I will help you make selections from your own wardrobe, curate outfits from online shops that meet your budget, or even share from my client closet. 


In this digital age, it is so important to remember to print your portraits. Custom portrait photography is an wonderful investment in your family's legacy. It is so sad when these images stay stuck in a computer! I always encourage each client to order at least a 4x6 print of each session image while they think about other artwork purchases. ALP offers a range of professionally created wall art and books. These come from my chosen print lab to which my computer is specifically calibrated, ensuring color and tone accuracy of your products. Printing on your own can be tricky at times, especially when attempting to print sizes that are a different ratio than your delivered files. ALP takes time to extend backgrounds when needed, or make any other changes to ensure everyone's heads and toes are in the appropriate spot on your final artwork! This is just a quick description of our services above and beyond the creation of the original portrait image. Please                  to learn more. 

Amy Lachney Photography is a full service photography studio here in Moore County, NC. The studio is located near Vass. ALP is licensed and insured. 

As a specialist in posed newborn photography, I understand that you are entrusting me to safely photograph your most precious new little one. In order to ensure that your sweet baby is in the best of hands, I have taken a number of online and in person posing and safety courses from some of the top newborn photographers in the country. I am always continuing my education in an effort to bring you the and your baby the best experience and the most safe and beautiful poses.

Because newborn babies create families and grow into little kids, I also offer milestone and family sessions. These sessions may be done outdoors or in studio. 

All sessions are customized to meet your vision, though I do specialize in fresh, neutral palettes to create timeless portraits that will never go out of style. Special care is taken during each session to ensure happy smiles from children and flattering poses for everyone. It is always my goal to capture the loving connection among family members at each session.

     Newborn sessions take place in my studio in Pinehurst. 

Newborn sessions last from 2 to 4 hours, including a short viewing of your baby's images immediately following your session! 

All props, backdrops, outifts for baby, and accessories are included with your newborn session.

Maternity and Fresh 48 add ons are available!

     Family sessions take place at any of my carefully chosen outdoor spaces, or outdoor location of your choice.

 Outdoor sessions typically last up to one hour. This includes plenty of time for me to get to know your kiddos so they can be relaxed for the camera. It also includes the use of Amy Lachney Photography client closet for moms and small children, if desired, as well as complimentary outfit curation if you are struggling to coordinate your family.



Studio milestone sessions are a great way to celebrate those little milestones of baby's first year. Come in for a quick session to document tummy time, sitting unassisted, and first birthday!

 (Cake Smashes are booked as full portrait sessions; see above for pricing.)

Milestone studio sessions are also a great alternative to school pictures for toddlers and beyond! Skip the cheesy school photos and come have a fun one on one session that will result in fabulous portraits of your child! 

Pssst...this is what I do for my own kids! ;-)
