Me and my sweet dog (in a mirror); November 2016


My name is Amber Lianne White. I’m a photographer who resides in the Denver metro area of Colorado. I had the wonderful privilege of growing up in California until I was 14, where I was able to spend a great deal of time in the mountains and by the ocean. As such, nature is not only one of my favorite backgrounds and through the use of natural light in my portraiture, but she is also often a favorite subject.

My father was my first photography teacher in that he taught me what he knew and still loves to tell me about things he finds wonderful. He helped me remember to stop and observe and plan, rather than simply snapping a picture. This still translates dominantly into the way I shoot even with a digital camera.

Love, flowers, scenery, and artistic portraiture

I specialize in four main areas. The first I like to simply call “love,” or “love connection,” and this is found in many places: in the exchange between mother and child, the happy gaze between lovers, or the laughter between friends. These are the places where memories are made, and I love capturing those beautiful moments. There are so many beautiful ways love shows up.

The second area I specialize in is specific to flowers. I separate this from nature and scenery specifically because I love flowers as much as I do and I believe they should have their own following. Taking pictures of flowers is something like taking a portrait in the way flowers respond so to light and movement. They carry their own personalities in a way and many have had traditional metaphysical meanings throughout time and cultures.

The third area is often something I shoot more for my own enjoyment. These are simply nature and scenic moments. These may include cityscapes and architecture. This is a common category selection for wall art. Please contact me if you would like any of my work reproduced for your wall. This can include any other category, as well.

The fourth main area I shoot is that of artistic portraiture. I work extensively with my clients to create the vision of the image before it is shot. This artistic approach to portraiture overlaps into the love connection photos I also shoot as I love being a part of every aspect of the creation process of beautiful images. When shooting an artistic portrait session with me, every session becomes unique to the clientele being represented. This is about you as well as creating a beautiful image.

If your need for photos falls outside of these categories, please feel free to contact me as I have partnered with many companies and artists in commissioned type packages. Some examples include spa settings and food stylings for a fancy brunch. I would love to see if we could work together to create stunning images.
