Hello, I’m Amber. A mother, wife and lifestyle + documentary artist living in rural North Texas. My love for moments and art started in my childhood. My grandmother was a big VanGogh fan so our house was adorn with admirable pieces of his work and while I don’t try to create it in my own work, I am thankful to be blessed with such history of art and its impression on me at such a young age.

In my teens I stumbled upon my grandfather's Canon AE1 and I spent my days documenting my siblings. I dressed them up. Dressed our dog up and snapped away with no real technical skill. Since then, my life has been blessed by six beautiful children. Four years ago my husband bought me my first  DSLR. It wasn’t long after that someone had made a comment about my work and how it wasn’t any good. I'll be honest, I was crushed. I put my camera down and didn’t touch or even look at it for a year. I let my ego and feelings get the best of me. Needless to say, I eventually picked it up again. I dove in headfirst absorbing everything I could to  improve my craft and make meaningful photographs. I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and as I look back on my journey it proves more and more everyday. At times, I have lost myself only to find a different version of "me". Here I am today, an eclectic soul, using my work to create memories, mostly inspired by my childhood memories or lack there of and therapeutically shooting my way through motherhood. The good and the bad, knowing it all passes so quickly. My heart is each one of my photographs; warm, bold, and emotional.
