Hey there, I'm Amber!
I’m happy, energetic, and love to laugh.
I’m a wife to an amazing man, who loves me for me.
I’m a mother to four crazy, energetic and happy kiddos. Our life is constant chaos, but I promise there is never a dull moment around here. They drive me crazy but I can't stand going more than a day without them...they truly light up my life & are my reason for everything.
I’m am also a nurse and have worked in labor and delivery for the last 10 years (yep - I get to snuggle babies in both my jobs!). I feel lucky each day to witness and get to be part of, possibly the most amazing moment in a family’s life.
I love chocolate, red wine & Starbucks iced white mochas. I love sunsets, summer, bare feet and thunderstorms. I am obsessed with beautiful light and live to chase it. I love the snow but hate the cold. I love to travel but at the same time am a complete homebody - I love throwing on some sweats (and my favorite, cozy, uber-ugly robe my husband still makes fun of me in), turning on Netflix, and just snuggling with my family. I treasure the quiet moments at home with my family. Sometimes boring is beautiful.
So why photography?
It’s always been a love of mine. Always. From taking Polaroids as a six year old (yep, I still have that one super awkward photo standing with my first grade "boyfriend" in front of our classroom chalkboard, hah!), to film developing in high school, to getting my first DSLR shortly after my oldest son was born.
I want to document what my memory can’t possibly remember. I want to document my children growing up, because as most of you know, it happens in the blink of an eye. I want to capture the memories, the details – both big and small – before they are gone... And I want to do it beautifully.
I want to be able to share my passion & love of photography with others as well. As much as I love documenting my own family, I want to be able to capture those moments and memories for you, too. <3
