Hi, y’all! I’ve been so busy with wedding after family portrait after engagement session, that my personal life has taken up any time left over that. But with Bubs back in school (hallelujah!!) and before I return to school (WHAAAA…?!), I’ve got a window of time to catch up on everything… and you along with it all! So that I can give you guys a sneak peek at what I’ve been up to professionally, please enjoy the following: I’ll post an update on my personal life shortly, but this is generally what’s been going on around here… so apologies for the crickets! OH! One more thing – the October dates for my Disneyland Portrait Sessions are coming up (whee!!), so if you’re going to be in the Southern CA area the first full week of October and want to get those fall portraits in at the Happiest Place On Earth, I’ll be opening up time slots shortly.
Amber (big fan of love)
I love to laugh with my couples. My favorite work has been with couples that aren’t afraid to be dorks with me… because I’ve got too much to love to share to spend time worrying if I’m not being “proper" enough. ;D
I like to work efficiently - getting things done right and within the least amount of time. Capturing people off enjoying life is way more fun for everyone than forcing them to begrudgingly pose for pictures.
I love being surrounded by love. Weddings are a difficult place to find anger and bad stress (I leave Hangry Amber at home those days)… it’s hard to let something like anger get in the way when you’re so knee-deep in smiles and love.
I spend my personal time with my amazing family and attempting to figure out what to do with my 30’s.
I also have a love for...
5k/10k fun runs and obstacle races
kate spade ANYTHING
exercise fashion (I should be sponsored by Nike with how much head to toe street wear I run around in)
eating to offset my workouts (you read that right... hahaha!)
gold and magenta
bows, stripes, polka dots and other girly things
physics, human physiology and biomechanics (once upon a time I went to UC Davis to become a sports medicine physician. whoops!)
restaurants where you cook your own food or it’s cooked in front of you (shabu shabu, teppenyaki, korean bbq, etc)
