Hi, I am Amber Reid.

I'm a traveling photographer who happens to call the Midwest region of the United States home. I enjoy being a wife and life partner to my awesome husband. We are the folks next door. 2 kids (CJ, 9 & MJ, 2) furhuman (Cecil, 8), fishies, and we all live in a house with a picket fence. That's about all that's average about us. Growing up, I wanted to 'fit in' like everyone else, but that's almost impossible when you are a mixed kid, adopted, have 14 siblings spread out across the globe, play 3 instruments, sing, dance, pursue acting across the country, model, have a wonderlust for travel, play volleyball, speak in funny accents randomly, attend 4 different colleges, get a cosmetology & barbering license, volunteer as a youth & worship leader at church, bake all the fattening goods, and I'm such a sucker for DIYs... oh and did I mention I take pictures?

Trying to condense all of who I am into a biography feels odd. When we die it's not the little obituary written that people tend to remember. It's the moments you lived with them. My photographs share pieces of those memories you simply can't capture with words. The smell of the lake after the 4th of July, the bitter cold that froze you to the bone when you went ice skating in Central Park, or that awesome anxious exhilarating thrill that made you question if you had a heart attack on that first rollercoaster. I'm here to help you reminisce all of those memories, the life you're living now, and the stories you've yet to tell. So what is the first chapter you would like to start with?

“From beginning to end, Amber is the BEST for the job. Any and every shot, she takes pride in. Even in the stressful moments of preparation, her attitude of servitude makes her an even MORE intricate piece of the puzzles. Her warm smile, soft tone and even softer touch on what she does behind the camera allows for a VERY easy time and DEFINITELY worthwhile. Thank you Amber!!!”
