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

Embrace your wild babies with tickles, giggles and hugs in this gorgeous Arizona desert - yes, even your older babies! From first steps to first dates is like you blinked and they're not so little anymore. So, it's important to celebrate every part of the journey!

I will share wardrobe ideas for the whole family! You will also have access to my client closet, if you choose. We'll look through beautiful locations and settle on your favorite. As your photographer, I am there to guide you through every step, from planning to posing, stress-free.

My goal is to bring family time to you, while creating incredible images to fill your home with. Not only will your portraits outlast lifetimes with the 100 year, museum quality finish, but they will hold onto your story for generations to come.

The Experience


I am here to guide you from when to schedule, to finding the perfect outfits, to a fun and comfortable session!

Your session is family time caught on camera. So, you can take an extra moment to play, laugh and squeeze in close!

Let's go through the process, together.

Stress-Free & Seamless, with Guidance Every Step of the Way 

Reach out and introduce yourself! When you fill out my contact form, I get a snapshot of what you're looking for.

I'll email you to chat about what stage of life your family is in, napping and feeding schedules, the perfect location to celebrate this stage of life, plus, I answer all of your questions. I make booking simple once you're ready to lock in the perfect date.


Get to Know Each Other

I'll send over location options that match your preference and we'll set the perfect time, depending on your choice. I'll help find you the perfect colors and styles for you and your family, and even send over some "add-to-cart" lists, making it easy to shop for everyone all at once.

You'll also have access to the gowns and kids options available in my client closet!


Planning the Fine Details

In the weeks leading up to your session, I will offer you my personal recommendations for accessories, prep tips and hair-and-makeup artists (if you'd like).

I am here to help you through every phase of planning, so you can keep parenting and focus on whatever life throws your way. I am always just an email away for any questions!


Questions & More

It's time to spend a little more quality time together! Soak up all the sun and love. 

I will prompt you with fun and loving things to do that will make everything feel like it's just you. Enjoy your time together and let the rest melt away.

We'll make the most of our time by capturing what matters to you most.


Loving Your Session

Within 48 hours you will receive your proof gallery via email. Once you've put down the tissues from the sweet video telling your story, you can take a look at your proofs. These are lightly edited to give you an idea of their final appearance and see your potential gallery. Once you've viewed all your images, you will choose your collection. 

You can mark your favorites right inside your gallery. If you have any questions, I'm always just an email away!


Your Gallery + Collection Choice

Once you've selected your images for your collection, I will put the finishing touches on your photos. Your final gallery will be delivered to you, via email, within 2 weeks.

You'll be able to download your digital collection and order some incredible artwork to place around your home! 

Everything comes together for the moment you've waited so long for - your artwork at your door! 


Your Final Artwork

The Process

And having both is a blessing.
Having somewhere to go is home.
Having someone to love is family.

The Investment

Because photos are memories that last a lifetime

Extended Family sessions


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.
