Fort Worth Architecture Firm Photography

Sometimes I feel as if my blogs here appear that I have an identity crisis. For years, people said, “Specialize, Amber” and “You need a niche.” And then, in 2020, when events paused for a while, all of the event photographers were scrambling for work. I hate the expression “jack of all trades, master of none,” but I am a photographer who knows a little bit of everything. I am aware of what I don’t know and hire a team of people to help me in the areas where I need more knowledge and expertise. I study. I consult with others in my field. I will never stop learning. As long as I’ve been doing this, I don’t know that I’ll ever master light or people, so there will always be room for improvement. What I have found over the past few years is that my clients value the relationship with one photographer to contact rather than hiring a portrait or headshot photographer and also an interior photographer and an architectural photographer and an event photographer. My team and I are equipped for all of these types of photography. This work with a Fort Worth area architectural firm demonstrates the type of projects we frequently complete. 


Headshots can be bright and airy, dark and dramatic, indoor or outdoor. We default often to a plain studio background for headshots because it’s easily replicated; however, this small team’s headquarters in the Clearfork area of Fort Worth provided a beautiful environment for portraits.

Fort Worth Business Press 40 under 40 Awards


This year I photographed the Fort Worth Business Press’ 40 under 40 award winners. I love this event because I meet people from my community who are working to create change. One winner’s father actually won the award years ago. I’m not sure exactly where the tradition of bringing props for the publication photos came about, but this year’s props were fun and unique.

Pharmaceutical Company Headshots, Environmental Portraits, and Team Photos

As companies begin to meet again in the office and for their annual board meetings and conferences, many utilize the time as an opportunity to hire a professional photographer to capture headshots or lifestyle photos for social media like Facebook and LinkedIn. This company met at the Omni Hotel in Fort Worth for their annual board meeting, and we captured clean, modern high key headshots of the staff and board members. A couple months later, I traveled to their headquarters in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina to photograph additional staff who were not present in Fort Worth as well as interior photography of their beautiful office building. One question people frequently ask is if we can match other headshots, and the great thing about studio lighting and our creative process is that we can replicate images exactly, no matter the location.
