Amber shows off her natural beauty in this portrait taken in an underpass in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I took this portrait of Amber on a balmy autumn day in Fort Wayne back in 2011. We had just met up at Starbucks (yes, I’m talking about Starbucks AGAIN lol) to discuss working together, as she was a hair and makeup artist. I asked if I could take some pictures, because, well, photography is my love and I can never bring my camera out enough! I captured this portrait at an underpass in downtown Fort Wayne, as we roamed around, exploring beautifully decaying urban corners. I love the natural, effortless vibe in the photo, and all of Amber’s natural beauty (see why I don't need to photoshop clients?!!? *grin*).

Amber and I managed to work together once on one photoshoot, our paths crossing in the midst of various life circumstances. Shortly after I shot these pictures, Amber moved to LA to pursue her makeup artistry dreams even further. She’s worked on some cool projects, from what I can see from her facebook feed. So I can only draw one conclusion; having me take a portrait of you brings good luck. ;)
