He likes to photographs plenty of different things, but his favorites are definitely pets, especially when they are at their most relaxed and comfortable.

His in-studio package includes the sitting fee, a link to a private online gallery and a disc which contains the photos from the session.

Portraits by Amber

Amber believes that unpredictable situations and moments make some of the best images. This applies to people but even more so to our pets, as some of the best photographs of them are when they are being curious, exploring, or are being playful in front of the camera which Amber is excellent at capturing.

You can choose from different sessions, depending on your budget and time you want to spend. What matters is you will get images that will save those precious moments with your pets forever.
