Who’s seriously nervous about getting in front of the camera? Come on raise your hands! 🙋🏻♀️ Some of the excuses I hear ALL the time- ➡️ I’m not photogenic, when I lose some more weight, I can’t take a good picture, I’m awkward in front of the camera, I’m not like you Amber, I hate my _ (fill in the blank), I’m too busy, I don’t have the money, I don’t know what to wear, I can’t do my makeup like you, my hair needs to be cut then I’ll do it, and the list goes on. 🤦🏻♀️ Ladies I’m here to tell you - that’s all bullshit. There I said it & I’ve called you out! Today’s tough love. 💕 Stop being so dang hard on yourself! Stop being your own harshest critic! Give yourself the grace and love that you give so freely to everyone else. 😍 If you’re a business owner your clients need to see you represented in your business. As you are now NOT who you were 5 or 10 years ago! If you’re a mom your kids need to have images of you. And I could give you 500 more reasons that you should step in front of the camera. ✨ You know I have your back and I’ll help you look your very best in your photos! I’ve got you covered for hair, makeup, clothing, posing. No more excuses beautiful! 🤩 Big shoutout to the amazing Katrina of @giannagracephoto. Isn’t she beautiful!!! Inside and out.
A little peek at yesterday’s amazing shoot for @shoptailor ‘s holiday lookbook!! 🎄 I love creating images for brands and collaborating on projects! It’s fun and creative and so fulfilling. 💕 What’s even better is that when you bring a creative group together and collaborate everyone wins! The ideas snowball and the energy is amazing. 🛍 Thanks @taylorpitera for entrusting me with your vision & brand!! Can’t wait to see the lookbook put together.
It’s Fri-yay! Time to celebrate!!! With new headshots!!! 🙌🏻 Girl let’s be real...how long has it been since you’ve gotten some new images of you? If you can’t answer that question without serious thought then it’s been way too long. 🤦🏻♀️ Getting in front of the camera is not something that everyone loves. But...and it’s a big but...it’s so important if you’re running a business!! How are your clients going to know who you are if you’re showing an image from 5 years ago or a fuzzy one taken with your iphone? 🤷🏻♀️ Whether you hire me or another photographer you owe it to yourself & your business to have amazing visual representation of you and all the aspects of your growing empire. Do yourself a favor and update those photos! 💕 Photo by @giannagracephoto
How cute & cozy is this sweater that Sarah @lifebythesee is wearing? 👚 Sweater weather is here to stay friends so make sure you’ve got your cozy sweaters & coats! 🧥 Sarah is the owner of @theseeboutique and one of my photography clients. (& friend too!) Love her & love her store! Soooo many cute things. A girl could get herself in trouble there. 💕 In fact sometimes you might even find me working in the store. A girl has to work for her sweaters sometimes. 🤣 FYI— I have an opening for one more monthly/bi-monthly photo client! If you’re a blogger, influencer, or small business owner looking to up your social media game with better pictures & consistent content I’m here for you. ⌨️ Email me- info@amberkayphoto to chat about your photo needs
Oh D.C. I had forgotten how beautiful you are!! 💕 A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing a lovely couple who had just gotten married. We did some portraits and then headed to their official wedding reception. 😍 It was such a low stress time for them and they just soaked up the love between each other and the love of their family and friends. ✨ It had been a little bit annex I had ventured into D.C. for a wedding and it did not disappoint!
