I'm Amber, and I'm so happy you're here. This blog is a journal about my life, travels, and the beauty I capture. Stay a while and say hello!
As soon as I pulled into Jamie’s driveway, her oldest son Wyatt peddled out to meet me on his bike. I think we were best friends from that moment on… As I was getting out of my car, he was already offering to show me his favorite climbing tree and asking if I could take […]
