Photographer, Amber Bauerle of Frosted Productions shares her latest photography, specializing in commercial, editorial and fashion photography.
Thanks for visiting my photography blog! I attempt to keep up to date on it, and have felt more motivated lately... so hopefully will be current eventually. This is a new blog since 2012, thought I would migrate my old posts over, but let's be honest, I don't think it will ever happen - so for now, enjoy my latest (and hopefully greatest). I usually write late at night, so please excuse my punctuality, sometimes I have something to say about a shoot, and other times I'm falling asleep, it's random, but at least you get to see the photos. I'm the only photographer and editor of Frosted Productions (get asked that a lot) - I will have admins help post photos, but I'm the one that always writes the posts - feel free to comment - I love to hear from others. xoxo
One of my closest friends called me one day and told me she had seen this beautiful blossom tree frozen over. I love things that are mixed when they are not supposed to be, ice and blossoms – so cool. We have crazy weather here in Utah, one day it can be 70 degrees and the next 30, this was in the Spring when our weather was trying to figure out what it wanted to do.
I was going through some old stuff the other day and came across my “High School Senior Scrapbook”. We had to put these together before we graduated… I graduated in 1999, so not TOO long ago, but feels like forever sometimes. I loved reading what I wrote back then about pursuing my photography dreams. My grammar was so terrible, it is slightly embarrassing to share, although posting to my blog at 1am probably is not much of an improvement.
I schedule my blog posts by the way, so it may show I’m posting at a certain time, but really my assistants and I prepared the post and schedule it in most cases. I always prepare the photos and write the posts, they just help me put the formatting together, etc. Still trying, trying, trying to catch up on my blog… it’s frustrating to not post my most recent work, but I feel like if I do I will never post the work I did prior to it, and I still love so many photos I have done this past year that I am excited to share. Hopefully with the help of my assistants we can get everything current soon.
SO, another thing I really loved about these “vintage” photos (ok, ok – I know they are not vintage), they are actually pretty terrible. Now looking at them is scary as the photography was not even close to good, BUT the interesting thing is you can tell I still tried to capture the candid moments that I do in my photography today. I think if you follow my work, you will know what I mean.
I just took the photos of the scrapbook in bad lighting with my phone because I was lazy. Oh and the “titles” on the photos – I know, so lame… funny.
I am updating my website right now, I realize that many links don’t work SORRY – oh an my blog is out of date, or behind, awesome – I know…. working on it! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any pricing questions, etc. my admins will help you! xoxo
I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful area, I live about 30 minutes outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. About a month ago I went on a Sunday drive with my family, this canyon is about 10 minutes away from my home. That’s one of the great things about Utah, the mountains are so accessible. Every Fall I am taken back by nature’s beauty.
Love this shoot – love Witney Carson, if you watch Fox’s show, So You Think You Can Dance, she made it I want to say to the top 6? The show is amazing, Witney was amazing. I was so lucky to work with her. My background is dance and so I can really related to dancers and when I do shoots with them I know what the proper techniques are, and so I can literally coach them and critique them while I am taking the photos, which helps to get those perfect shots.
When we did this shoot I was super nervous that she would get hurt because the floor was super slippery and with her doing the “jumps” she was doing really stressed me out, I was thinking “what if she got hurt and had to leave the show because of my photography session with her” lol. She kept reassuring me that she was fine. When we did the shots where there is water on her hair, etc. Those types of shots are actually really hard to get without the water being too much on her face or something, we kept throwing water on her over and over and she started to shiver! But she was such a professional and wanted to keep going until I got the shots, I think I did.

This post is not only to give you a discount on the BEST faux floor mats out there, but to also tell you a little bit about this company and their wonderful, amazing, perfect floor mats – that I personally LOVE. If you look at my old blog or this one, you would know that I normally don’t post about products and companies very often. But I couldn’t resist not sharing with my fans some info about these amazing faux floor mats – PLUS I’m going to give an exclusive discount to anyone who wants to purchase one, two, three… there are so many great ones, and after you use one you will be hooked!
The name of the company is “PepperLu”, if you are a photographer, I’m sure you have heard of them. They specialize in “photography props”, their main product being these amazing faux floor mats. Before I had ever used them I saw some photos of them, and I couldn’t believe how realistic they looked, I also loved that there was no glare. Then when I found out you could smush them into a washing machine, I was sold! It seems I constantly have props and equipment that are heavy, or wrinkle, or just awkward things for me to move around constantly during my shoots. PepperLu mats are my favorite faux floor mats to use because they are so easy to move around and manipulate! They are like a giant mouse pad, that is the best way to describe them.
And then just to top everything off their customer service is astounding, everything they do is quality and “current”. They know what photographer’s want.
I am offering a special discount on these until March 23, 2012!!!!! The discount code is, “frosted”. Whether you are a professional or somebody that just likes taking photos of your children in your own home, these mats would work for you. They are so durable, I have used them for multiple editorial shoots, newborn shoots, etc. and all of them still look brand new.
Below is a quick little video I threw together to show you how easy they are to use, plus different ways I use them for shoots, store them, etc. My husband was SUPER excited when I let him know he was going to be in this video (not really he would rather be snowboarding, and still can’t believe I’m actually posting this). It’s not some professional commercial or anything, but thought it might help for you to see them in action. And make sure you keep reading below to enter to win a $50 gift card from PepperLu!!

Yeah! I have my new blog up! That is probably not interesting for anybody else but me because there is nothing for you to view…
I have never in my life felt so behind with things… I haven’t updated my old blog for months, and I’m trying to update my website, blog, etc. Wow! I have been overwhelmed. This fall turned out to be way crazier than I ever expected and looking back I think I took on a little too much… needless to say if I am in bed at 3:00 a.m. that is considered an early night.
Hopefully things will get caught up soon. I will start posting stuff on here before my website is completely finished so I can have at least something up to date. I am DYING to show some of my latest stuff. In the mean time one of my bridal shoots was just featured on Utah Bride Blog! I am super excited about this, their blog is beautiful!
