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 stopas well as a whole bunch of other stuff.
Some background: I was raised by an abusive, classic narcissist in a super-strict, homeschooled Protestant Christian upbringing; no TV, no secular music, no unmarried sex (ha!)
Because of this, I’ve been highly motivated to achieve excellence, and have contributed a lot of therapy hours and reading hours to this end. Trust me – there’s help out there if you need it.
I’m biracial, and often white-passing, but identify as black.
My life is currently beautiful. My husband Marley and I are ethical humanists, and love traveling, New York City, and hanging out with our amazing group of friends.
