About Amanda Kellogg Photography

Hi - my name is Amanda. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I am also a photographer. I would love to say that I grew up loving photography, that I have done it my whole life, and I have had a single minded mission to be a professional photographer since I was six. But the reality is that it started much smaller than that. It started as a spark in 2007, when my son was born. It was a desire to capture the smile of my baby boy that grew into a passion for not only capturing my own memories, but for helping others capture special moments in their lives, too.

I really enjoy documenting those moments in places that are special to my subjects… in their home, a favorite park, the family farm, and anywhere else that brings a sense of home and feeling of enjoyment. One of the hard things about studio time at chain places is that you have just a short period of time to sit and smile and move to the next outfit or generic background. I take extra time with each of my clients to coax out more natural expressions and get to the real person. I want to capture YOU and your silly or crazy personalities - how you really are so you and your family will have cherished photographs to look back on for years to come.

S Family | Southeast Minnesota Family Photographer

Monday, October 1st, 2012

It’s a bit (okay a lot) intimidating when a fellow photographer has you take pictures of their family. Emily of Emily Schnick Photography has done my family’s pictures a couple of times now and now it was my turn to test my skills on her adorable family. Her little baby is about a month old and just tiny;  I’m insanely jealous of how awesome Emily looks already. Big sister was a riot and apparently liked me tickling her because there were a couple of times she told me she wouldn’t smile unless I did it. :)   I think we got some great shots with a super adorable family.
