I'm super excited you're here and I can't wait to get to know you! Oh, me?  I am a maternity and family photographer with just under a decade of portrait experience. I'm also a coffee-addicted, fitness junkie who could watch The Office on repeat, forever. I come from a big, but tight-knit family where I'm the oldest of 3 siblings. My love for photographing families cuddled up and giggling together, started with them.

 Living in west valley Phoenix, Arizona, I thrive in sunny mountain foothills filled with saguaros and sunlight! I love helping families hold onto sweet moments for a lifetime...and then some. I can't wait to do the same for you! 

Your Phoenix Maternity and Family Photographer.

Hi! I'm Amber




When it comes to something as valuable and timeless as portraits,  it's about making every moment count. Personally, my time with my family is sentimental for me, and I want to provide that same experience for other families.

The photographer you need makes you feel comfortable and prepared. You just want to know what to wear, where the best scenery is, and how to not look awkward while getting your kids to smile. Well, welcome, friend. I've got you covered! 

The goal is authentic smiles, hugs and lots of movement! Silly and wiggly kids are not just welcome, they're encouraged!

My Method for Your Portrait Session


Contact Me

I started my career with the biggest set ups and best professionals under a nationally known studio company. I knew the main ingredient was missing, though - that emotion and connection between families.

When I set out on my own, I brought those years of experience into the desert and family homes. Over the last decade I've brought out connection, play and authentic smiles with every session. Making moms feel beautiful and powerful, letting dads relax and kids be kids is my super power!  Swapping stories, experiences and struggles, judgement free is just a side effect of my career. I love every second of being a maternity, newborn and family photographer in Phoenix. Building amazing relationships with my clients is simply an added bonus. 

My Background as a Phoenix Maternity, Newborn and Family Photographer

My experience


I am so thankful to have found Amber!! The images she took of our family are beautiful and she was even able to make my stubborn toddler smile! Amber is so easy to work with and she provides great feedback if you have any questions. I can’t thank her enough for helping to capture images that I will cherish forever.


Amber is the sweetest human. She is so much fun and makes you feel so comfortable throughout the entire session. She is so encouraging and reassuring that everything you are doing is perfect (even when you feel it’s not). She has such an eye for where the sun light is and her photos turn out breathtaking. She is wonderful through and through!


Amber was exactly what our family needed! From the start she has been incredibly responsive and delightful to work with. Even with our super awkward group, she made the whole experience light and fun while somehow capturing beautifully candid moments.

We highly recommend Amber!


When we moved to Arizona we had this vision of family photos we wanted. Amber made that vision come to life and then some! Her work was more than I could have asked for. She made the session seamless and I couldn't ask for better family photos.


She's so wonderful and easygoing, we laughed through the entire session. The pictures came less than a week after our session and they're beautiful. I'll be using her for all of our pictures from here on out!


My pictures turned out AMAZING!! Amber was so great to work with. She told me exactly how to pose and where to be, while also getting my feedback and doing any poses that I wanted to do specifically. I would highly recommend Cactus & Pine Photography and will be using her again in the future!


The session was AMAZING! Amber prepared us well for the photos. She knew different areas to go that would get great pictures. I couldn't have asked for better natural photos of my family!


My husband is NOT comfortable in front of the camera so we don't have many pictures just the two of us. We had SUCH a good time and they were better than I could have ever expected. We just had her shoot our maternity pics and they're even better than the first set.
