Amber Marie Chavez is a Los Angeles-based photographer with an expert eye for capturing calmness in her photography.

As a child, Amber Marie Chavez was drawn to photography, thanks to the influence of her mother. "Growing up I was greatly influenced by my mother, she opened up a photography business when she was my age and worked out of her home," she said. "A lot of the equipment I use today has been handed down from her."

The familial influence on Amber Marie Chavez' photography is evident. Her pictures show someone who is equally adept at shooting candid shots of models, as well as desolate landscapes. A cursory glance at her portfolio reveals a theme of carefree elegance and slow-paced serenity, perfect for pensive moments or someone with itchy feet who wants to "get away."
