My husband and I loved working with Amber. She took lifestyle maternity photos at our home as well as newborn and family photos at her studio. All are beautiful. I love showing people our album with her shots of our daughter. We highly, highly recommend her!

When I was searching for a maternity and newborn photographer, I did my own research, and my final decision was to go with Amber at One Big Happy Photo. I couldn't have made a better decision. She was just so sweet and friendly, you can tell that she took great pride in her work, and loved doing it. She made me feel very comfortable. She's very patient and answered all my questions. It was amazing how well she worked with my newborn and my 2 year old. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and the pictures were absolutely beautiful. Everyone that I showed my pictures to felt that they were absolutely amazing.

Amber so so perfectly captured our daughter’s personality during her one year photo shoot. Family members can’t stop talking about how amazing the photos are and I know we will cherish them for years to come! She was so good with our daughter and also helped us feel comfortable during the photo shoot. We highly recommend her!

Amber is the best! Our newborn was immediately so comfortable in her arms & remained calm and comfortable for the entire 3 hour session...she is a baby whisperer! The photos she took were breathtaking and something we will cherish for a lifetime! We can’t wait to work with Amber again!

Had a six month milestone session with Amber as a first Mother’s Day gift to myself. Amber was awesome and so sweet to work with. I just wanted a simple and fun session and it was just that. She really captured my sons personality and I’ll have pictures to cherish for many many years.

We had a wonderful experience with One Big Happy Photo. I requested a photo session to commemorate my grandson’s first birthday. Family photos were first taken of him with his parents and then on to the cake smashing. We wanted a Wild One theme, and Amber made sure the setting was picture perfect.

Working with Amber was fantastic on every level. She’s the ultimate professional before, during, and after the shoot. Every question leading up to our session was promptly answered, her experience photographing children is evident with every click of the camera, and the finished results are like works of art.

We’ll treasure these photos forever, and we’re grateful to have such an amazing talent right here in Glastonbury CT.

Amber is a baby whisperer. She had out little guy calm the entire session. This was our 4th newborn session and we were anxious about having 4 kids at a photo session. The entire sessions was so relaxed and calming. Amber took care of everything and thought of every little detail. My older kids were happy AND she was able to capture ALL four of them looking at the camera! She involved them in the entire process, which they loved. The photos turned our beautifully and we have received so many compliments. We had some changes to some of our photos and Amber was so patient with all of our questions and understood what we were looking for. Beautiful pictures combined with a fantastic experience, can't beat that!! We highly recommend One Big Happy Photo.

Amber should be known as the Baby Whisperer!! She is an amazingly talented artist with such an ability to engage, not only our baby, but our disinterested and self-conscious 5-year-old as well. She captured the pure essence of out sweet and sassy baby and gave us the most beautiful memories that we will treasure forever! Not only the printed images but the memories of the rolling laughter throughout the session. I loved having her come to our home. Not having to pack up and have children distracted by unfamiliar surroundings is such an amazing convenience. Most of all, the personal attention to detail, creativity, and utmost care to ensure that you love the images and how they will be displayed was truly special and what left us wanting another occasion to have her come photograph our family again! . . .Megan A.


Amber is truly a talented photographer! She was able to capture beautiful moments of our newborn as he grew his first year! Amber also photographed our daughter, a busy 2 .5 year old and was able to show her personality through the images. Most importantly, Amber's kindness and professionalism are apparent in every meeting we had. She got down at my Children's level, bringing bubbles and snacks, playing with their toys and talking with them. She took the time to get the kids comfortable so the images would be their very best! For my husband and I, she was patient and informative. She helped us choose the specific images we wanted to purchase. She did not rush is through the process. Amber helped us design a wall gallery of photos. She has a great eye for design and knew just what would work in the space we had!! And upon delivery of the products, Amber, hangs them for you! A true service. I highly recommend her work, her professionalism and Amber as a person! . . . Jen E. 


Our experience with One Big, Happy Photo was amazing from beginning to end! Besides being a tremendous photographer, Amber went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with everything that she was doing from the start. Our little boy was a bit fussy and unhappy after a rough night, Amber somehow got AMAZING photos of him that makes it impossible to tell that he wasn't cooperative that day! It is easy to tell that Amber loves what she does, and that shows in the photos. It was difficult to pick photos that we wanted because of how well they turned out. Our prints and canvas picture look wonderful, and our friends & family adore them! Thank you, Amber, for capturing photos of our little one at such a precious age! We will definitely be working with Amber in the future to make sure that we get perfect photos of our boy as he grows up! . . Stacey D.


Amber was amazing! Would highly recommend. She made the experience of taking photos with a 7 day old baby a breeze. She works wonders on keeping the baby sleeping and posing the baby. I think every new mom should have Amber take photos of her newborn. A memory I will never forget and now have pictures to remember. . . . Lynette H. 


I can't rave enough about how amazing Amber is. She is extremely talented and captures the most beautiful photos. The photos she has taken of my daughter are absolutely stunning. On top of that, she makes the whole process of taking photos (in your own home) to selecting your photos (again, in your own home) extremely easy. When your photos come in, she hand delivers them to your door. She has taken our newborn photos and 6-month photos so far. We definitely will be having her take 1-year photos and beyond as well. . . . Christine W. 


Amber was just wonderful to work with. I was so impressed with her work and how truly invested she is to be sure you LOVE your photos. She takes the time to sit with you one on one (with 4 kids at home, yes 4!!!) to come to your home to see your style and look at where you are thinking of hanging your photos. Amber is so professional, arrives on time at your location, spends lots of time on your photo shoot and will not quit until she gets what you discussed in the consultation. We had a great time with her and loved our photographs. Most of us do not like taking pictures, the kids are easy to pick out but the ones of all of you....take some work at times. She made us feel so comfortable and I'm so happy to have not just One Big Happy Photo....we got four canvases! She will even come to your home to hang them!!! NOBODY does that!!! Great customer service and most of all a truly kind, genuine person who is a great photographer! I highly recommend Amber, you will not be disappointed. . . . Suzanne B.

If you would like to personally contact some of my past families to hear directly from them about their experience, please let me know. I'd be happy to pass along the contact information for several of them.
