Cira Photography and Design was founded in June of 2013 by Amy Morris, a freelance photographer and graphic designer. Her goal for Cira is to have a place to share photographs capturing the beauty of historic locations and cultural events from around the world.
In 2012, her images of the Sun taken with a program called MicroObservatory, were included in a special exhibit at Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, GA. This inspired the name Cira which means Sun. Her love of photography spills into
her hobbies of cooking and astronomy (Yes! She cooked the food, photographed it, then her family ate it)!
She has a great passion for studying religions, science, history and archaeology which has driven her to travel extensively throughout the US visiting National Parks, Monuments and historical places of significance for Native Americans, colonialism and history of the US. Her travels also include several European countries, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.
Amy Morris has a B.S. in Psychology and holds certificates in Graphics & Animation and Print Media, all from Kennesaw State University. She is currently a student of photography with Southeast Photo Adventures and is in her first year of a four year program called Education for Ministry. Amy is very active in her community and church- she is a Stephen Ministry Leader, an Archaeology Merit Badge Counselor with BSA and a dedicated volunteer in her children's school. Amy is a member of the Lower Muskogee Creek Tribe in South Georgia.
