savannah portrait photography

through all seasons of life

I absolutely love photographing families and couples in and around Savannah. I will ask you to look at the camera and smile at times (the ones grandma wants!), but then it's time to play! Be prepared to swing, spin, dance, and laugh! How about let's throw mom up in the air!?!? If you have fussy kids (or husbands!) who hate photos, it's ok, I'm your girl! I'm patient with the kids, and I make it fun for the guys.  You will leave me feeling so excited, relaxed, and even closer together! 
 
My bright, airy, playful, and true to life style will produce some gorgeous images you will be proud to display on your walls year after year! Savannah is one of the most beautiful places in this country- we can create some stunning wall art just for you! Can you envision that huge Kirklands-worthy family photo above your fireplace? Tell me your ideas and let's do it! 

let's capture the love and joy of your family from birth and beyond

I am always searching for the most perfect light and location for my portrait photography! Sessions are held on-location in downtown Savannah and surrounding areas, including, but not limited to Effingham, Statesboro, Pooler, Tybee Island, Hilton Head, and Richmond Hill. Wormsloe? Bethesda Academy? I would love to hear your location ideas!

I also offer beach sessions on Hilton Head Island during specific times of the year. Click here for more information on my Hilton Head family photography.

"Glowing Amber Photography was recommended to me by locals in the area and I decided to make the call. Little did I know,that call would lead us to such a beautiful person and a beautiful experience. My fiance and I have never received professional photos in the five years of being in each other's lives. Amber greeted us with open arms. She captured photos that could be worth millions in our eyes. Her passion truly shines though her work, and I would choose her every time. Thank you again for giving us such a beautiful experience, and capturing our moment of pure love and happiness. We found a lifetime friend and photographer!"

"we found a lifetime friend and photographer..."

"My family and I loved Amber from the moment we met her. She greeted every one of us with a hug. She was patient with my two kiddos and with our requests. She is fun and personable. She called us when she had a cancellation because she knew we were on a tight schedule and worked us in. And lastly, we ran into stopped traffic on I16 and I knew we wouldn’t make our appointment. We were an hour late and she waited for us and shot pictures for about twenty minutes before she had to leave for another appointment. I would recommend her over and over again. Thank you Amber!!"

"LOVED AMBER FROM THE MOMENT WE MET HER"

"Amber is THE SWEETEST woman who has SO MUCH passion in what she does, and it shows in her work. She did our gender reveal and absolutely blew us away with her photos. We had specific things that we wanted, and she completely exceeded our expectations. Will not be using anyone else for photos! She is absolutely wonderful."

frequently asked

1. Why in the world would someone want to hire a birth photographer?

I thought the same thing before I became one! Now I wish so much that I could go back! I capture the sweet and tender moments not only between you and your newly born baby, but also the connections and love between you as a couple. The loving touches, encouragement, hugs, smiles, the closeness you feel during that super emotional time. The first moment that you AND your partner lock eyes and touch that precious baby. You cant get those moments back, and they wouldn't be captured otherwise! Don't worry, I won't get any graphic photos or your "lady parts"... unless you want me to!

2. What is a Fresh 48?

It is also known as a "First 48", where I visit you in the hospital within 48 hours of birth. I take photos of the baby with you guys, alone, siblings, and any other family members you choose.

3. What is a "lifestyle" newborn session, and how is it different?

A typical studio newborn session includes posing, wraps, backdrops, and positioning the baby into specific poses. My sessions are in your home, in your own surroundings, and include the family. The point is to focus on the family interacting together, where everyone is comfortable. All of you piled on the bed, cuddling in your favorite rocker, baby in his crib, even the dogs!

frequently asked questions

1. How would you describe your photography style?

My style is a mix of lifestyle/journalistic, with some classic photography mixed in. I get the posed group shots that grandma will want on her wall. Then we get a little more playful, and I photography you laughing, interacting with each other, playing, hugging, and just being yourselves. I will check with you first to see if you have a preference, and make sure we get all the shots you want.  Be thinking about what you want for your walls-- these beautiful images need to be seen and enjoyed every day!

2. We don't know what to do with our hands! Can you help us with posing?

Of course! Gentle and natural posing is one of my specialties! I have taken education courses that have taught me posing for flattering all body types. You will be comfortable I promise, and it won't feel like work at all!

3. What happens after our session?

When your photos are ready within 2 weeks, I will email you a link and password to your personal gallery. You can share this with friends and family. From there you can view, download your favorite 20 images, share on social media, and order prints, products, and extra digitals. You can also download your print release.
