My Man: Dorian Hargrove

I am so proud and amazed at my husband's strength and progress following the Traumatic Brain Injury he suffered two months ago. He has been asked by the organization, Think First, to speak to children and teens about his story.

I started documenting his experience when he was a patient in the Intensive Care Unit. Even then, in the back of my mind I envisioned one day his writing and my photography could be used to help raise helmet awareness, I didn't think the opportunity would come so soon. Dorian has been amazing in many ways throughout this experience. He has allowed me unfettered access to his journey, even though he says he has not had much of a choice. His openness and strength in sharing his vulnerability is poetic, artistic, and inspiring. Now, more than ever, I am so proud to be his wife and best friend. Yesterday, I staged an impromptu photo session of my man, here are some of my favorites.
A full photo story is in the works!


Family Portrait - Christmas Cards

Its hard to believe that Christmas is almost here. We love taking creative Christmas family photos and turning them into cards. We found the cutest fairy inspired Christmas cloths for the Hamel clan on my favorite site etsy.com and had a magical afternoon at the park. Here are few of my favorites.


Say Hello to My Little Friend, Joey Neves

This blog has a new home. Check out my latest work at: www.capturedbyaimee.com/blog

Abby and Gus were one of the first friends we made when we moved to San Diego. They are some of the funniest people we know. In fact, not long ago at an Ethiopian restaurant they had me running to the bathroom from their antics. We were so happy when they told us they were going to have a baby and while they kept the sex a secret we had a feeling it was a boy. Joey Neves entered the world October 23 at 7:47 pm. I had the opportunity to photograph this handsome guy 9 days later. Here are some of my favorites!

About Me

My photo
San Diego, CA, United States
I like wine on the porch, my best friends laugh, sticky canoe rides in the muggy South, my husbands heart, Wilco, my dog running in his sleep, capturing a moment that someone will remember forever.
