I love getting my picture taken. I know. I’m weird. Someone in my family reminds every once and a while in case we all forget. Last year we had our pictures taken professionally and this year I wanted to get some new ones done since we now have Wyatt. Since having Wyatt I’m still kind of in-between sizes so I used this as a good excuse to go shopping. It worked out so well because my sister-in-law was in town and she’s got a great sense of style. So, Katie, my sister Kelly, and I went shopping. Sans kids. It was great. Both of the outfits that I chose were a little out of my comfort zone. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, so the skinny jeans, boots and dress I ended up wearing was me trying to branch out. To all my clients who I say color looks great; see, I went with color for the dress and doesn’t the color look amazing?!

I will be honest, I had a hard time deciding who to use. I’m picky and there were certain things I wanted. Some photographers that I liked were way out of my budget, or I had to spend an arm and a leg to get the files thus making them out of my budget. I knew I wanted the files – for the same reasons that everyone else does.

I remembered seeing an image from a facebook photographer friend. I really liked it and went to check out the rest of her work. I loved it and decided she was the one for us.

I enjoyed my session with Amber, she was down to earth, casual, and I think we are similar in a lot of aspects – which is probably why I liked her photography. So, without further ado, here are my top favorites from our session with Amber McDowell Photography.
