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.

Favorites of 2011 | Southeastern Minnesota Photographer

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

I’m SLOWLY getting wound down from the holiday excitement and have finally managed to get my favorites of 2011 rounded up to post. I had such a tough time narrowing them down, so there are 77 total! I’ll be posting over the course of the next week or so to get them all posted.

I know I say this ALL THE TIME, but I really have the best job as a photographer and the BEST clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Book Your Fall Sessions!

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

I know with this beautiful weather, it’s hard to think about fall – but school is right around the corner and before you know it, we’ll be complaining about the cold and snow! It’s time to think about booking your fall session now! Spaces are limited, and I recommend contacting me today to get your session booked or at least penciled in!

And as a special boost to get you moving, I will include a $50 print credit – so a total of $350 print/product credit to be used for your $300 reservation fee. This credit can be used for any prints/products I have (including holiday cards), so contact me before September 3 to take advantage. I can be reached at 507.440.2044 or amanda@amandakelloggphotography.com.

 

And because a post isn’t a post without a picture, check out my adorable little guy. He will be 3 in December and is potentially model material. He did this pose on his own!

 

 

Maternity | Rochester, MN Family Photographer

Monday, August 1st, 2011

You’ll have to forgive my lack of a good title – I couldn’t come up with one today. :(

I met up with this cute couple yesterday in the horrendous heat to capture these pictures of this beautiful, gorgeous mother-to-be. She is tiny and I’m one jealous person to have wished I looked HALF this good when I was pregnant. These two are expecting their first baby – a girl – in September and couldn’t be more excited.

A and M, thank you for allowing me to capture this special time in your life – I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cassandra | Taopi, Minnesota Maternity Photographer

Monday, July 18th, 2011

I met up with the beautiful Cassandra last week for her maternity session. I’m a bit behind on blogging – life is too darn busy lately!

Anyway, my friend Cassandra is about ready to have her third little one and doesn’t she look fabulous? She is just glowing and beautiful! I know I didn’t look this good in the sweltering Minnesota heat when I was 38 weeks pregnant!

Cassandra, can’t wait to meet your little one.

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Maternity :: Southeastern Minnesota Maternity Photographer

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

This family contacted me off a referral of two of the newborn sessions I’ve done. Isn’t she beautiful? I feel so lucky that I get to take pictures of such beautiful subjects all the time. L is a proud big sister, though she wasn’t too fond of the cold (and really, who can blame her?). I think she is ready for her brother to arrive.

F family, thank you for allowing me to capture the memory of such a special time in your life. I hope everything goes smoothly on delivery day. Enjoy your sneak peek. :)

Beautiful B :: Southeastern Minnesota Maternity Photographer

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting up with B and her two beautiful daughters last night to take maternity pictures. B is a sweet, gorgeous person, and I can only dream of looking this great 37 weeks pregnant. Her daughters are as beautiful as she is, and I cannot wait to meet their new baby girl.
B, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek, and thanks for letting me photograph this special time in your life.

Maternity :: Southeastern Minnesota Maternity Photographer

Monday, September 14th, 2009

I was contacted to take pictures at a baby shower my friend was helping host. This beautiful mom-to-be is pregnant with twins (one boy/one girl) and doesn’t she look fabulous?! I didn’t look even close to that nice when I was pregnant with either of my boys.
I also took some family pictures while I was there, and we tried to include everyone. I hope you all enjoy your sneak peek. Best of luck to you two on your new additions!
