I'm not a blogger. I'm a photographer. But being a professional photographer at Amber Bounds Photography apparently means being a creative, a business woman, a marketing director, a book keeper, shall I go on? Photography is such a small part of what I do as a portrait artist! But it sure is a fun part! I figured the best way to start things off is with an introduction. What about a list? Everyone loves a list right?
Name: Amber Bounds (known to my husband as Red, but he's the only one allowed to call me that)
Who Am I: I am a child of the King. A Christian who gave her heart to Jesus at the age of 7 and who strives to live a life that glorifies Christ each day. But, boy do I fail a lot! I am wife to Pastor Kevin. The hottie in the photograph above. He stole my heart about 16 years ago when God sent me the man I had prayed for right down to the tall, dark and handsome part. I am mama. Mama to 11 year old tender-hearted Jakson who loves hugs and his xbox (insert eye roll). He may be a bigger football fan than me but its a pretty close call. Mama to my sassy-pants, Liv Rooney loving, purple hair streak wearing, sweet surprise, Lila. She may really believe that she is, in fact, a princess.
What makes me happy: That would be cheesecake. Ha! No, for real. And coffee. A really good book. My big crazy family. Going to sleep with one earbud in listening to a podcast. Watching the Braves on Sunday afternoons (and any weeknight that I'm not out shooting). Cheering on the CCA Patriots! Y'all. I never thought I'd be a basketball fan, but I act the plumb fool at these games. Trojan football on Friday nights! (Again, when I can catch a free Friday night) My Georgia Bulldogs. I try to love the Atlanta Falcons most of the time but they really don't have my devotion completely.
What makes me sad: South Georgia heat. Not a fan. Negativity. Fake people. Mayonnaise. (Blech) Housework. I'm terrible at it.
Favorite TV Shows: Gilmore Girls (I will never understand why this show ended), Downton Abby ( Oh, Matthew. Insert tears.)
Favorite Movie: Oh thats hard. I don't have one favorite. Every time they come on I watch Elf, 10 Things I Hate About You, Steele Magnolias
Books: Jack Reacher novels ( He should NOT have been played by Tom Cruise y'all!) Anne Of Green Gables, This Present Darkness (this one will make you look at the world in a whole different way), Harry Potter, Prince of Tides, The Water Is Wide
