it's not just about the preset...

90% of your results are about what happens in camera first

Does this sound

You know you could improve your editing process, but you’re not sure how–all you know is that the hours you’re spending in front of Lightroom are stealing your joy (and your eyes hurt)!

You feel personally victimized by golden hour. This is supposed to be the best light of the day, right? Why can’t you get rid of this orange, muddy haze?

like you?

I'm ready to fix this!

This sounds exactly like me.... please help!

You go to a location and you know the lighting matters but your'e still not sure where to go.

You get into editing and you find yourself wasting hours and still not able to achieve the look you really want. What am I missing?

Despite your best efforts the skin tones still seem off and your clients aren't in love with how they look.

You feel personally victimized by golden hour. This is supposed to be the best light of the day, right? Why can’t you get rid of this orange, muddy haze?

You're sick of people trying to low ball you, you are frustrated because you feel like you won't book if you raise your prices.

You are not attracting your dream clients, and feel like you are on the hamster wheel of inquiries that don't value you for YOU! 

If you want to be a luxury photographer, you can't just slap a preset on your images and expect to get amazing results, no matter how good that preset is! My full course comes with my beautiful custom presets, but you need so much more than that. It's about lighting, white balance, settings AND editing!

Erika Norman

Welcome! I’m Amber! I’m a wife, a mama to two boys, a lover of light, and I absolutely love photographing mamas and their sweet kiddos. 

I've spent years building my dream business into a six-figure luxury brand. I used to charge $50 for an hour portrait session to now $2,000 and more per hour session. This has absolutely changed my life and my family’s life and I want to help you do the same! I truly care about each and every one of my student's success so I am always here for you if you have questions after the course!

"This course allowed me to feel like my work was worth more money, and I raised my prices not too long after, so the course was definitely worth the investment!"


mellie tongoc

Before this course, I thought I had most everything figured out in terms of editing, but I was still using different personal presets that I made depending on what location I shot at. I also was constantly fiddling with all of the settings post photoshoot and doing a lot of localized brush work after each session to even out skin tones or dark spots, etc. I just wanted something to help simplify and expedite the whole process. Enter the Light Livin Transformation course. I love how for every session I am no longer scrolling through my 10 presets that I made which vary hugely from one another. It is just one click and most of the work is already close to done. I love how I evaluate skin tones IN CAMERA now vs after the fact. I love how I have become so much more aware of negative space balance in my photos. Her indoor preset also does such huge wonders! This course allowed me to feel like my work was worth more money, and of course I raised it not too long after, so the course was definitely worth the investment!

"I feel so much more confident in my ability to take dreamy photos after taking this course." 


meghan karaan

I have struggled getting a consistent look in my photos for quite some time and after taking Amber’s course, she has changed my perspective on how I shoot my subject, where to properly place them and how to edit my photos. Her course has helped me understand different lighting scenarios and what to look for so I can shoot photos with that beautiful glow in the background. One of the things that stood out was its focus on white balance and how to properly adjust your settings to have true to color skin tones. There were times before where I felt my subject's skin tones came out flat in photos but after her course I have had no issues and my photos have life and vibrance — all thanks to Amber! Her course is very thorough and engaging and I absolutely loved all the real life video content she provides. I feel so much more confident in my ability to take those dreamy photos after taking her course.

"Investing in the Light Livin Transformation Course was one of the best decisions I made."

mandy feld

Before the LL course, I struggled to achieve the look that I wanted. I liked my images but they were still missing something. I was struggling with mastering my skin tones, finding the perfect greens, and how to find the perfect light at every shoot. When I found The Light Livin Transformation Course I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. Amber goes in depth into which lighting to shoot in and how to use light to flatter your subjects. Her focus on how to create composition in your images was eye opening. At first, I was bummed she didn’t offer her preset outside of the course and I now know exactly why. If you don’t follow the shooting steps in the course, you will not achieve the result you are expecting. One bonus I got from the course was I am more confident in setting my aperture triangle for sessions. I 110% feel this course is great without the amazing Light Livin Preset but it truly is the icing on my images. I have always struggled with skin tones while using other presets in the past. The Light Livin preset is the only one that doesn’t change your client’s natural skin tone and flatters it. In addition to achieving my dream images I have gained tons of strengths in my business. Since completing I have created a portfolio of images I am proud of, and I have been able to confidently raise my prices. In past years I would book a session here and there. Now I am booking 3-4 months out and getting more and more inquiries each week. Investing in The Light Livin Transformation Signature Course was one of the best business decisions I made.

The Light Livin Transformation course has completely changed my strategy for finding the best light & location for my clients! I now feel so much more confident when I begin my sessions & more knowledgeable about where the best spot is to place my families for portraits. My editing process has become more efficient because I now understand how to edit for creamy skin tones & how to achieve the light & airy style. I am a busy mom of 2 but was able to complete the course within a month of purchasing because the content was concise & very easy to digest. I would definitely recommend this course to any photographer hoping to improve their shooting & editing skills in the light & airy style!

Previous to signing up for Amber's mentoring sessions I was always self conscious of my own work. I struggled with lighting and location and I could never edit consistently even with presets. Investing in the LL Course was life changing. Amber gave me all the confidence in shooting and editing for me to thrive and continue pursuing my passion. I am now 200% confident in my own photography style, and I'm able to achieve consistent results through shooting and editing consistently. But the best thing I have learned from Amber was branding. Building a brand means creating something unique that only you can achieve to attract clients. Branding means you are able to deliver consistently to give clients what they are after. Now I'm able to achieve consistency I have noticed that people are instantly attracted to my style when they see my feed and website. Presets just don't work unless you shoot consistently, too! I am now booked for every weekend until February next year (it's only now November). It's pretty crazy! The results speak for themselves. Thank you for your support Amber. You’re such an inspiration to me, and always will be ❤️
