AmberSky photographers are professionals in the field who have the purpose to help you capture your important family events. They strive to keep your family happy and looking their best while doing any photography session.
As mothers, they both understand the patience and finesse required to create a photography session for children that is a positive experience for all. They love photographing their St. Louis family clients.
I grew up in a house where my father always had a camera taking pictures of my sister and I. It was rare to find my father without his camera. He wanted to be sure to capture all those special moments of his two daughters growing up. Before I was even walking (well almost) I knew how to use a camera.
My father had instilled the importance and value of being able to stop a special moment in time to me. I have grown up and now have two beautiful boys of my own. It seems like everyday when I wake up they have changed so much. I now understand why my father always had his camera. I feel like I am instilling these same values into my son, Dmitri. He has one of my old film cameras that he enjoys pretending to take pictures. His favorite thing to take pictures of his thunder when storms come. He will stand inside at a window and pretend to document the storms as they roll though.
Children hold a special spot in my heart – they are so sweet, innocent, and precious. Part of why I became a newborn/family photographer. As a mother I understand how fast time speeds up and it seems like a day when really two weeks have gone by. Taking pictures and stopping those little moments in time so that they can become lasting memories is so important with our little ones.
Being a mom myself I understand the importance and safety of newborn photography. It is so important to find a professional photographer that has training specifically in newborn photography when searching for a newborn photographer. This is why I attend workshops and classes so that you can be relaxed knowing your newborn is safe during our photography session.
Hey, I’m Michael! Photography has been a passion for me since my wife and I first embarked on our cross-country trip to adopt out daughter. My little camera documented the scenery, the long winding roads, and the antelope beside the highway as we entered the Northern states.
It captured our first moments as a family, the tears, the joy, and the milestones as she’s grown up these past nine years.
It’s never been about capturing posed families for me. The true joy has always been about the real-life moments that tell the stories of our life RIGHT THAT SECOND. Sure, I’ve posed and photographed families for years, but have decided that’s not the route for me. There are countless photographers in the area that will take a photo worthy of the front cover of the Reader’s Digest if that’s what you are looking for, and they’ll probably do it better than I could. But if you’re looking for someone to anticipate and capture the moments you cherish, the looks that define your family, and the spirit you share, I’m for you and you’re for me. Real life captured beautifully is my passion. So, if that’s what you’re looking for, we’re a perfect match. I’d love to chat with you and start planning your perfect photo experience. It’s going to be a blast!
