Black Cat Photos bio picture
  • Welcome to Black Cat Photos!

    I'm Amy Tolbert, a New England native who ventured to San Francisco over 20 years ago. Wow, how time flies when you’re having fun! The Bay Area immediately captured my heart and I've considered this ‘home’ ever since. I have spent these past 20 years pursuing my passions – photography, travel, and people. After studying photography at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, I went on to produce corporate events which I've been happily doing for the past 13 years. During this time I began to shoot many of my corporate client’s events -- around the world! I then started shooting my coworker's and friend's growing families which led me to branch out and start my own business, Black Cat Photos, my own “baby” that I have been building over the last 7 years.

    It has been a great balance for me to produce and photograph events and the little ones! I love little kids (and big kids at heart!), as well four-legged family members – pets of all kinds! What I enjoy most is capturing memories for my clients that will last a lifetime.

    I hope you enjoy visiting my site. It will be updated with new photography on a regular basis so be sure to visit often! Or better yet, leave me a message on my contact page to let me know a little bit about your family photo or event needs. I look forward to making some photo magic with you!


“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism

and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality..

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word”

~Martin Luther King


Every year there are companies that congratulate their top sales people with a special trip for them and a guest. I am fortunate enough to have been a part of these elite groups of people and to have had the opportunity  to travel to some amazing places with them to be their personal paparazzi! These trips are a tough thing to win for these sales people. They work hard and have earned every minute of fun and relaxation. This is a small sample of some shots from Cayman Islands, Hawaii, Los Cabos and Monaco, Costa Rica & Ireland Leave a message on my contact page to inquire about pricing for photography  for Corporate Sales Incentive Trips.
