Amber shore pictures Story

One of my fondest childhood recollections transports me to the shores of the Baltic Sea. It is a fond memory of moments spent in the company of my family, as we delighted in the sun-drenched coastline. My brother and I were digging holes in the sand and the warm summer weather felt just right. I can still envision my mother's diligent search for fragments of amber, gifted to us by the sea. With the sand between our toes, the fresh air embracing us, and the occasional mischievous seagulls eyeing our sandwiches, life felt serene and uncomplicated. It was the harmonious union of sand, sea, the purity of fresh air, and family. At that time, there was not a worry in the world and life was simple and peaceful. My father captured these moments with his camera and etched them into our hearts forever.

This is what Amber Shore means to me, and I wish every family would have memories just like that - warm, peaceful and simple. This is why I made it my mission - to create moments for families that are fond to remember. The family life starts with the wedding, but goes much further than that, and I am here to document the moments that make life.
