about me

Hi there! My name is Amy Haehl and I'm the artist behind the photos you see here! I guess since you are here you would like to know a little about me! Well, my mom taught me how to use a 35mm camera at the age of 8. Yes, that would be a FILM camera... not digital! So, needless to say, my love of photography (along with camera technology) has continued to grow through the years! When I went to college it didn't occur to me that my love of photography could also be a career, so I decided to become a nurse. I worked as an ER nurse for 11 years before deciding to commit myself 100% to my photography business. It was a tough decision but one I'm very happy with. I love being a nurse but I know without a doubt that being a photographer is what I'm meant to do. In college I also did some modeling (I can't believe I'm admitting this!) but quickly figured out that I much preferred to be the one behind the lens rather than in front of it!
I have a wonderful husband named Mike and I'm a "bonus mom" to two boys. I also have 3 littles of my own that keep me super busy (and on my toes...always haha)! I love life, and I know all too well that life is a gift to be cherished. As those cherished moments in life pass us by, our photographs are all we have left to show for it. When asked "If your house was on fire and you could grab only one thing (other than your children/pets) what would you take?" I would without a doubt take my photographs. I think most people would say the same.
I'm glad you found me and I hope you love my work! Please feel free to contact me via the contact page of this website if you would like session information!

Coffee Creek Studio is located in Shelbyville, IN...just southeast of Indianpolis
