what you receive:

"Amber was wonderful from our very first correspondence to the finished product. She was very responsive and accommodating. She came to Hilton Head to photograph our large (15 people, including 7 children ranging in age from 6 months-10 yrs old!) family while we were there on vacation. It was SO windy that night (she said it was the windiest shoot she’d ever done) but you’d never know it from the pictures. She somehow still managed to get the perfect shots. She was wonderful with all of the kids (and some of the adults too). I would highly recommend Amber to anyone in the area. I only wish we lived closer so we could use her more often!"


"i would highly recommend amber to anyone!"

"Loved working with Amber. We did family photos on the beach in Hilton Head and she picked a perfect time for light, location and weather. I typically hate photography but she made it fun and easy for the four of us. The picture turned out beautifully and better than we hoped. Thrilled to have found her. Highly recommend!"


"she made it fun and easy"

"Every moment of working with Amber of Glowing Amber Photography was a delight. From the scheduling process to some weather issues, she was wonderful in terms of communication. Ours was a large group spanning small children to grandparents and Amber handled it beautifully. She was warm and fun, which brought out the best in all of us. I absolutely LOVE our photos! We all look forward to working with her again in the future!"


"i absolutely love our photos!"

what makes me different?

You will leave me feeling closer and happier together than when we first met. I capture your family connection, not only cheese filled poses. Little details, smiles and frowns. Hands, feet, and hair in the sun. Extended family photos plus mini family sessions for everyone. All you do is show up, and I'll handle the rest! I don't make you choose between the 10 precious shots of your baby, or the ones of your parents hugging versus laughing, you get them all. Everyone gets the whole experience and each time you look in the gallery you will relive all the love and happiness you felt that day. They are yours forever!

I love my job - being a beach family photographer makes me happy, and it shows! I take great pride in my work, and I want to make you happy, too. My hope is for this experience to be one you will fondly remember, and have beautiful images to cherish forever. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!

I provide you with a totally FUN-FILLED photography experience! Joyful, patient, people-pleasing, accommodating, dependable, relaxed, and thorough...
are some words to describe me!
