Hello and welcome to Amber L. Richards Photography! I’m Amber, a family photographer in Hampton, Virginia!
My passion for photography began in the summer of 2009 with the purchase of my first DSLR camera. I took my camera with me on my family's vacation to Lake Gaston and I couldn't put my camera down! I loved capturing the genuine moments of my family enjoying each other's company out on the boat, around the dinner table, and sharing family stories late into the night.
In 2011, I photographed a handful of outreach events in my community. After sharing photos from the events, I was asked to photograph families for their Christmas card and that's when it happened. I was smitten with the idea that with photography I had the opportunity to create tangible mementos of meaningful and significant moments in other's lives.
Since 2011, i've had formal photography training in the classroom and have participated in many workshops and photography clinics, learning under some of the industry's most talented professionals. Using what i've learned, my goal is to capture the authentic and inner beauty of my clients and to create photos that speak to their legacy that lives on through their photos for generations.
