About Us

Hi beautiful people.....

I'm Memories by Cheryl Mays, award winning photographer based in Amherst, Virginia but service all over Central Virginia and I am always willing for a road trip anywhere.

I absolutely love photography.  I’ve loved photography for over 40 years but just started my business in 2014 with my friends and family saying “you have something special to share”.  I am a lucky person....I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, 3 beautiful children and a "Nana" of 1 jewel.  Plus our newest addition "Ace" our very silly and lovable boxer.  They all mean the world to me.  As you would guess they are my photography subjects most of the time. 

I strive to capture natural expressions and spontaneous moments. My objective is to produce breathtaking photographs that are meaningful to you.  I love making those "I wish I had a camera" moments a reality.  I put as much love into each image no matter what type of photography I am doing. 

Believe me you are gonna have a blast with me.  I am always laughing and I make you relax and have your natural beauty shine thru.  All of my clients tell me how much fun they had.  I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Have a blessed day,
