Amber Heins Photography
And The Girl Behind The Camera
I take it your here to learn more about me and behind the scenes of Amber Heins Photography. Well I’m so glad your here!! I will admit, this was the toughest part about this website, that’s why I actually left it till the end!! HAHA!! I was kind of being a procrastinator I will admit lol! Well a little bit about myself, I’m a wife, and a mom of two sweet + sassy little girls. We have now added 2 tiny fur babies to the family… two little fluffy kittens! Their name’s are KitKat and Miley! KitKat actually got his name from my daughter trying to say kitty cat, lol! I thought it was pretty cute, so it stuck. They are my little break from all of life’s daily stresses lol!
Myself, I love to be creative and I’m a complete obsessive DIY-er!!! I am actually a self-taught photographer that didn’t realize I had a passion for photography until I had my 1st daughter, then I was determined to learn, and well here I am today! Still learning, but where I want to be! I’d say I’m meant to look through the lens rather than be in front of it! I guess you could say that’s why I don’t have many pictures of myself.
Back in high school I worked on the school newspaper and yearbook and I remember I wanted to be the photographer so bad, honestly, only because I figured I wouldn’t have to write a whole bunch of articles, but hey being the sports editor was pretty cool. Back then, I didn’t realize I had that passion at the time. I never pictured myself where I am today. With that note, I’d like to thank all of my past and loyal clients for choosing AHP to be their photographer.
Located in the gorgeous northeast part of Iowa. AHP started the winter of 2014 and I had my first clients that fall and I just started growing from there! So I’d like to thank my amazing client fans that asked me to take their pictures that year. Without you, I wouldn’t be here today! Also in April 2017, Amber Heins Photography became an LLC! Another step to building my feminine empire!
My goal for each of my clients is to show them that it’s ok to smile in front of the camera, to be able to feel comfortable and good about themselves being in the spot light, and also having fun throughout their experience! For me, I’d say I’m meant to look through the lens rather than be in front of it let’s just say! I mean, I get nervous and shy in front of the camera too, not gonna lie! Even getting these photos taken of me, without direction, I felt so awkward, but with the right amount of comfort and letting me be your guide, those images are bound to look amazing! Trust me!
I love doing formal posing photos, but I also want to capture the special authentic moments too! You know, those moments that actually look real. Like tickle time with your kids, or the giggling expressions you make when you’re laughing at yourself trying to be serious at that moment. Even that feeling you get after you kiss your significant other and you look at each other after, yeah that smiling giddy moment. Those moments are special keepsakes and I’m going to capture that!!
Would you like to know what AHP has in store for the future?! We will be opening a shop soon! We are looking to expand into the social media platform. AHP will soon be offering Lightroom Preset Collections, many different types of templates, from graduation cards to business logos! The biggest product we are planning to introduce in Feminine Stock/Product Images!! Similar images to my office setups! Women Entrepreneurs deserve to have gorgeous sites or products!!
For the past year, we’ve been researching and looking into creating physical handmade products as well, such as newborn headbands and wraps, maybe even some tumbler’s and koozies! Although this will take some time, we are pushing to get this accomplished soon!
