Hello, my name is Amber Farnam. I live in Benton Illinois with my husband of 23 years and my two daughters who are 19 and 21.

In 2010 I started a journey to learn everything I could about photography. At the time my niece was almost 2 and terrified of going to get her photos taken and I thought I could help out by learning to take a decent photo of her then there would be no more screaming trips to the studio! She turned 9 in October and everytime I think about this journey I think about her.

I honestly never dreamed this would become a business. My big goal was to be able to do my daughters Senior photos and by 2011 I was already getting many friends asking me to photograph their children.  I refused to take payment until I had a business license in hand so I had people offering to take me to dinner after our session.

In June 2012 I officially opened my Facebook doors of Amber Farnam Photography. Since then I have had so many amazing sessions.  I have met so many wonderful people and got to hang out with the most adorable children.

I am so grateful to be able to capture your families memories.  I have so enjoyed watching so many families grow and becoming friends with so many of you.  I look forward to what the future will bring.

  1. I would like to set up a session for my boys, with a couple family shots as well.
