About This Blog
Welcome to The Amber Show.
I’m a photographer and blogger living in Brooklyn with my dog and my husband.
Here is what I look like:

Pretty cute, right?
This blog started in 2004 because I was bored, and it has unexpectedly become one of the most important parts of my life, connecting me with amazing experiences and wonderful friends. It also gives every bad experience an automatic silver-lining: I can blog about it later. It’s seen me through building a career by way of a few false stops, two husbands, two states, and a 45 pound weight loss, as well as a whole bunch of other stuff.
Some background: I had a super-strict homeschooled Protestant Christian upbringing; no TV, no radio. NO UNMARRIED SEX! (That was the big one.) But again with the silver-lining: I am now a member of an elite group of people who can get together and chuckle about how we used to believe the earth is 6000 years old and the bourbon in our glasses would send us straight to hell. Cheers! I’m an emotional and physical abuse survivor and, therefore, advocate for greatness, which I talk about here and there.
