I'm very excitable, love to be outside the house doing things, and would prefer to take on any DIY project over hiring a professional. In my spare time you can often find me either on the couch with a book or on my road bike in the county roads of Livermore. Alex (the guy on the left) is not really any of those things, and I love him all the more for it! We've been married since 2015, and our relationship constantly teaches me more about how to love well.
I could go on with things about me, and you can find some of them below in the "fun facts" if you're interested, but the most important thing about who I am is that I believe in a Creator who made me to be creative. I love making beautiful things, and I love the process of creating, whether that be in my house, in crafty art projects, or in my photography.
P.S. The yellow? It's my favorite...always has been.
I am passionate about ethical living, using what I've been given for the good of others, and loving people well.
This means three things:
I love supporting small businesses that give back, or non-profits that are committed to helping people - including fair-trade and ethically sourced companies. Ask me about my favorite places to purchase clothes, jewelry, or even wedding related goods!
I believe in using what I've been given for the benefit of others, and it makes me happy to give back to causes that I believe in! I have a few favorite charities that I would love to tell you about if you're interested, and I always love to hear about your favorite organizations that do good.
I try my very best to serve my clients and to put them first. It's my hope that you leave your session feeling encouraged and uplifted.
I desire to showcase God's designs and use the creative skills that I've been given to bless others. When I have good pictures of myself with those that I love, I can look back and remember what we looked like and where we were, but also the emotions that we felt. The memories that come back with a good photo are irreplaceable, and I love being able to preserve them.
This is my cat and she is five year old Amber's dream come true. She's beautiful and fluffy and she plays fetch with hair-ties and straws.
I was in marching band for 4 years in high school, and played the baritone horn. Music and band classes have always been a big part of my life!
I graduated from UC Davis in 2013 with degrees in math and philosophy, and a minor in computer science. Photography is one of my creative passions, but during the work week I'm an engineer!
I love love love Joshua Tree National Park. I've lost track of how many times we've gone, but every time I just think to myself, "Man, that's beautiful!"
I have sort of an obsession with Dairy Queen - we have been to a DQ in 13 different states and counting in the last 5 years! Yes, that was definitely planned on purpose.
Alex and I started dating during our senior year of college, about a month before graduation. We got married on our old campus 2 years later, and have been married for 4 years now!
