First Blog Post!

Yay I’m so excited to be finally writing my first blog post. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and now I finally have the time because guess what..... I quit my day job at the beginning of 2019 and went full-time with my photography business. Yep! A little scary but also very exciting!

What does all this mean exactly? Well, it means that I can pour my heart and soul into doing something I truly love. And that of course, is photography. Not just photography, but preserving and capturing life’s biggest and smallest moments and providing beautiful documentation that will be cherished for generations to come....


I intend to provide all of my current and future clients with valuable information about what I do, what to expect and how to make the most of your portrait sessions. This will also be a great way for me to share and network with other creatives and photographers out there as well as provide a space to showcase the wonderful people I photograph and their stories.

It’s a big year for me and I am really excited for what’s to come! Some things are unknown but some are already in the works.


Here’s what’s ahead:


Although it’s still freezing and snowing, spring is around the corner and whether the snow stays or finally disappears, we will still be celebrating Mother’s Day as scheduled. I am so excited to be offering mom and me sessions with a gorgeous gift for mom included in the special price of $275. Sessions will take place on April 6th & 7th at Manito Park rain or shine. If it’s raining we will be capturing beautiful lush images inside the comfort of a local green house.


Some ideas to make a day of it and show mom how special she truly is:

1.) Give her a special gift that she can wear during her session like an accessory 2.) Take her out and let her enjoy the rest of the day with a meal at her favorite restaurant or doing her favorite activity with the family.

3.) pamper mom with hair and makeup or a spa day before her session


How cute are they, in these perfectly coordinated outfits! Bonus: They’re wearing my favorite color!

These are all sure to provide mom with a wonderful experience that she’ll remember forever and photographs that she’ll cherish for years to come.


Mom will receive 10 photos to choose from. Five are free for digital download in full resolution with a print release, meaning you can print them anywhere you’d like. Those five photos that mom chooses to be her favorite will also be printed, matted and placed inside a beautiful glass box trimmed with rose gold accents and tied with a satin ribbon, ready to gift to mom by Mother’s Day. What’s great about this gift is that she can continue filling it up with her favorite memories each year.


A few more things in the works are some styled shoots that I am really excited to take part in. The bridal festival was great for networking and meeting with other professionals in the industry and I can’t wait to see what we come up with once we collaborate in the near future.


One of the things I really want to focus on this year is helping other local artists and businesses share their work and tell their stories through professional and creative imagery. If you or someone you know is interested in getting professional photos for their business or to bring their creative visions to life, please let me know! I am more than happy to schedule a free consultation so I can get to know them, their story, and discuss their business needs.

I offer a wide variety of services beyond just capturing high quality images... Need brochures, flyers, or cards designed, maybe some wall art for your workspace?

I can do that too. All part of what goes into customizing a business portrait package with me.


I’ve heard great things about how combining passion with career yields amazing results and I plan to do just that!


If you’d like to follow along with me and this new venture then follow me on social media @amberfinophotography. I will be sharing links to new blog posts as they're published as well as updates on projects I’m working on including model calls and special offers.


My website was recently updated at the beginning of this year. Be sure to check it out at: www.amberfinophotography.com


Last but not least, in fact, this is by far the most important piece… I’d like to give a huge shout out to all of my friends, family, and loyal clients! You’ve all been so supportive and amazing to work with. Thank You! You can not know how deeply grateful I am to have met and captured so many incredible people! I’ll be starting a referral program ASAP so keep a lookout in your email for that! Word-of-mouth is the most common way that people find me. The referral program will encourage and reward my loyal clients for spreading the word about their experience with me.


My next blog post features a sweet couple and their amazing in-home lifestyle session! Seriously if you love seeing perfectly coordinated interiors then you won’t want to miss this one! So much inspiration and all the feels!


I’d love to hear your ideas for future blog posts. Please feel free to share your thoughts and feedback with me!
