Amber is amazing! When we were looking to find a photographer for our newborn photo session, we found Amber’s work to be the most impressive. We loved her creative style and were so happy to be able to book time with her. I was a little nervous the morning of the shoot because I wasn’t sure how my daughter would do. My worry quickly melted away. Amber is incredible with newborns. She’s a baby whisperer! My baby was calm and Amber was so gentle and careful with her. The studio is comfortable and inviting. The parent’s corner and breakfast was a nice touch. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with the experience and results. Highly recommend One Big Happy Photo. We will definitely be back!

Simply Superb !. We reached out to Amber for Maternity and New Born shoot and her response was quick and detailed. The shoot was very well planned, fliexible with dates, and based on our interest and requirements. There was no pressure and she gave her valuable inputs all along. New Born shoot was one of kind experience. The studio is a comfy place for everyone accompanying the little one. Beyond the wonderful shoots she takes, her handling of the newborn was very smooth and elegant. She took care of the delicate newborn and made her feel comfortable and gave us life time memories in prints.I strongly recommend Amber to any one looking for newborn photography. Thanks Amber for giving us those wonderful memories. Everyone in family loved your work. Thanks Again.

If you are looking for a newborn photographer, look no further! Amber is warm, friendly, and a true baby whisperer. Our photographs turned out better than I could have imagined, and we have received many compliments on them. Working with Amber was pleasant from the first exchange, and she even rescheduled our session due to an unforeseen doctor’s appointment without hesitation – what a relief in that stressful moment. Amber is now my go to newborn photographer.

I don't even have appropriate words to describe how in awe we are of our newborn photos. Amber is THE BEST! From the first time I talked to her on the phone, I could tell she was warm, friendly, and passionate about her work. She is a true artist. She made us feel right at home during the newborn photos and even ensured we had food and refreshments! She was a baby whisperer and did a great job posing our son. And then, when we saw our pictures, I was truly amazed. They are the most beautiful and unique pictures I have ever seen. Amber also patiently helped us pick wall art for our home. She is one of a kind. Stop here and pick Amber if you are looking for the best newborn photographer. You will not regret it!!

Amber was great to work with. She captured some lovely moments of our 2 older kids with their new baby brother and matched the new baby’s photo shoot to our other kids newborn pix (taken in another state). We are thrilled with all of the images and amazed at her talent in working with newborns. I would absolutely recommend her.

Highly recommend Amber at One Big Happy photo in Glastonbury, CT. She was so patient, gentle and caring with my new little bundles of joy. Very professional, easygoing and talented! It also helped that she was SO sweet! I reached out to her very last minute as my girls came early and were in the NICU for awhile. She worked with me - making her schedule work around mine and I couldn’t have been more thankful for her! I can’t wait to work with her again in the future! �

We absolutely loved our session with Amber! She has been the most professional photographer we've worked with. She is so accommodating, so patient, and so skilled at what she does. We really wanted to have an outdoor session with our toddler and our 14 year old dog. It was raining the day we were scheduled to go, but she was willing to reschedule to another day so we could keep the session outdoors (specifically at Wickham Park which was a bit of a drive for her, but she had no issue with it). Our little one was exhausted and a tough cookie to work with at the day of the session, but she still managed to get so many beautiful shots! We are so happy that we went with Amber for our photographer. Hire her! You will not be disappointed. :D Thank you, Amber!

Amazing!

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.

Wonderful!

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. 

Fantastic!

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.

Awesome!

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. 

Terrific!

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. 

Professional!

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.
