Amber Fox Photographer » Stylish Portraits for Hip & Happy High School Seniors & Families in Orange County & Los Angeles, CA

This morning I seriously tried on four different pairs of pants and two skirts. I either have too many clothes, which is true, or it’s way too early in the morning to make any concrete decisions. If you are like me, use this morning’s inspiration guide to put your outfit together.

If you are one of my many family portrait clients, please refer to these guides as inspiration as to how to coordinate the colors you wear and how to look fashionable for that photo that is going to hang above your couch for the next 5 years.

    Where are the links for where to buy? I am DYING to know where I could get that dress! LOVE LOVE LVOE! This is such a great idea. I’ve said that before haven’t I? ;)

    you have shown me a side of my sister and her husband I have never seen before. That love that they have for each other is amazing and you sure did capture it! thank you for sharing.

One of my good photographer friends, Tracy had a baby.  So I went to Whittier Presbyterian Hospital today and I just HAD to snap a few shots while I was there. Welcome to the world baby Avery Nicole!

Avery was born on November 1 at 9:25 pm, weighing 8 lbs 6 oz and is a whopping 21 inches long!

Little Avery has jaundice so she has to get a little sun tan under a special light. Even though the colors are totally strange, I thought the photos looks super cool. 
Tracy & Bob, congratulations to being proud parents of a beautiful little girl! Holding this little one made me want to have one that much more. God bless you both!

    she’s adorable! I can only imagine how elated the Norred family is!!!

  • Tracy - November 11, 2010 - 10:57 am

    Thank you for taking these Amber! I absolutely love them!! :)

Every year John and I dress up for Halloween. Since I work at a high school, it is almost mandatory that teachers dress up. So I have been everything from a Geisha girl to an 80′s aerobics instructor over the 9 years I have been teaching. This year I was sort of lame and dressed up as a cop.  Considering I told ghost stories in the darkroom all day, the only part of my costume that came in handy was my flash light.

John had the best costume ever; he was the B.P. Oil Spill. He bought all sorts of fish paraphernalia and covered it with black paint, along with his face. People would look at him and it would take them awhile to get it, but once they got it, they could not stop laughing. My husband is pure genius status.

Just wait, B.P. is going to create a super hero to redeem themselves after all the mess they caused.
This is was what we wore last year. I love that I bought my 70′s dress at a thrift store, but totally wear it all the time. And I love John even more after looking at this picture. 

This last pic, John and I took on one of our first dates 5 years ago. After looking back on this picture, I can see even back then, how meant for each other we are. The writing was on the wall!

    darn cute Amber!

  • Lorrie Prothero - November 29, 2012 - 11:10 am

    In your cop outfit, you TOTALLY look like the singing cop from the Mask movie (the one with Jim Carrey)

If you are anything like me, I have the hardest time getting ready for work in the morning. I wake up all groggy and stand in front of my closet bleary eyed deciding what to wear.  I can often stand there for five minutes before I finally put an outfit together. For a photo shoot, I can only imagine, even wide awake, how long someone might fret about what to wear. Hopefully this guide will make it a bit easier.

    Ummmm…can I just say I LOVE THIS FEATURE?!!!!!! Oh my goodness!!!! You’re brilliant! (and I’m inspired!)

  • Peyton Cooke - October 29, 2010 - 7:22 am

    Love this!!
    And I love her outfit!

    Now I want to go shopping!!

  • Jaqueline - November 3, 2010 - 12:14 am

    This is such a cool idea. I love it. So different and so cute.

Noelle and Chandra are absolutely adorable! I have to say, if Fullerton were to have a cutest sister contest, these girls would win! I had so much fun taking pictures of these too, because they really knew how to work the camera and find the light.

As the older sister, Noelle is Ms. Fashionista and caught the eye of many passersby on the streets of Downtown Fullerton. Her laugh is contagious and she is simply one of the funniest girls I know. With her kind heart, Noelle wants to be a nurse and serve the sick of this world. I know that one day she will be sprucing up the plain nurses outfits for a more fashionable Noelle version while saving lives at the same time.

Noelle’s younger sister Chandra is ADORABLE! She’s currently a junior at Rosary High School and is as cute as can be. With an Irish background, her strawberry blond hair and freckles make her the cutest girl EVER! With a bright spirit and gorgeous smile, the camera just loved her!

I don’t know what is more beautiful, Chandra or this light?! I think you can agree, Chandra would look good in any light!
Noelle, you are so gorgeous I CANNOT handle it!
The girls brought these cool vintage Schwinn’s to the photo shoot. So much fun!
Chandra, do you even know how beautiful you are?!
Work it ladies! You know how to do this.
We found the perfect spot along the Fullerton Loop for some fall colors. 
Um, this might be my favorite from the whole shoot. 
Noelle, you are hot! 
Thanks for a fun day ladies. I hope you love these pictures as much as I do.
