Afternoon Inspiration: A Local Photog’s Dreamy Polaroid Project

We became big fans of local shutterbug Amber Mahoney after seeing her stylish portraits and lookbook shoots, so when we caught word that she's got a super-cool photography project under way, we were intrigued.
The project, simply titled Present Company, showcases the interesting, quirky characters that Amber encounters on a daily basis — and along with a portrait, she provides each person's answer to one of two questions: "If you could ask a perfect stranger anything in the world, what would it be?" and "What is one thing you’d like people to know about you?"
The result? A fascinating glimpse into the life of a stranger. We caught up with the photog, who shared her inspiration, insight, and a few of her favorite snapshots — click through to discover.
