i'm happy to introduce you to amber scruggs {little moon photography}

Name: Amber Scruggs
Business name: Little Moon Photography
Location: Northern, Virginia
Website/blog: www.littlemoonphotography.com /

Tell us one sentence to describe your photography:
Most people describe my work as organic, timeless and creamy.

What's one thing that everyone should know about you?:
I'm a workaholic and very organized. It definitely helps when you own
a business!

How long have you been doing photography and how did you get started:
I've been in business almost two years. I was always into photography
but didn't take it seriously until my son was born. I wanted to take
better photos of him and it exploded into a business.
What did you want to be or think you would be when you grew up?:
A veterinarian, I have always loved animals!

If you were given $500 today, what would be the first thing you would do?:
A clothes shopping spree! I never spend money on myself these days.

Where do you go to find inspiration?:
Flickr is an awesome place to find inspiration and I also follow
countless blogs of other photographers.

What type of sessions are your favorite (children, e-sessions, weddings, newborns....) and why?:
Newborns! I love how beautiful, perfect, and new they are. The miracle
of life inspires me.

What equipment do you use and if you had only one lens to use...what would it be?:
In my camera bag I have:
a 5D Classic
50 1.2L
85 1.2L
135 2.0L
24-70 2.8L
100 2.8 Macro

If I could only use one lens it would probably be my 50 1.2, it's
awesome for newborns and older kids outside.

What moment in your life makes you smile every single time you think about it?: The birth of my son.

What is at the top of your wish list right now?:
Shockingly, nothing photography related!

Tell us the best advice that you have ever received (photography related or life in general):
Having a photography business is 70% business and 30% photography. You
have to love the business aspect of it to be successful.

If we surprised you at your house today, what would be the first thing we would notice?
Our two obnoxious dogs! One of them is quite the attention whore.

And lastly.....when we started the maternal lens, all of us filled out this questionnaire and shared our answers....now it's your turn :)

What is your favorite word? Gorgeous and you have to say it like this:
What is your least favorite word? moist (ick)
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? LIFE!
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Having too
much on my plate/stress
What sound or noise do you love? My sons laugh
What sound or noise do you hate? My alarm clock
What is your favorite thing to say when you get mad? Can't repeat it, lol.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? A Storm
Chaser, I'm obsessed with all things weather!
What profession would you not like to do? Pilot, flying gives me major anxiety plus I'm an all around bad driver so I'd probably make a poor pilot.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? I like to think god is hip and he'd give me a fist bump or something
and would welcome me to the party they were having in my honor. ;-)
