Join our weekly coffee meet up community over at Grounded Moms of the West Valley!


Hi, I'm Amber! Lover of blueberry pastries and good coffee in the morning with my better half, Michael, and our Dutch Shepherd Chewbacca. (Somehow) I manage to be an avid runner and weightlifter. The simple things in life make me happiest, like music to suit the mood of the moment and bingeing  The Office. 

Aside from food & coffee, time with family, working on other forms of art, or  spent outdoors is usually what I'm up to. Naturally, I bring my love of art and being outdoors into my work and I love every second of it.

Photographing families and couples is my way of making small moments
meaningful for others, with their closest and favorite people. The truth is, nothing will be faked or forced, because it is all real laughs, snuggles, and fun. Time with people you love is time worth spending, and I am just there to listen, laugh with you and capture all the feels so that make your favorite people your home

The best part about being a photographer is creating moments with you and for you. And I love it! I am so excited you're here and I can't wait to bring this entire experience to you. 

Let's meet, already!

Get to Know Me!

My Life Behind the Camera

M and I met in our high school years, and became great, nerdy friends before dating in college. After a year and a half long-distance while he kicked off life in Arizona, I officially became a transplant, too! In 2019 we brought Chewie home! This adventuring, nerdy, and game loving bunch will do anything to get out and explore some place new! Stopping at coffee shops and local restaurants is always a must because we simply can't do without coffee. We love the friends we've made along the way!


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.
