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.

52 Week Project – Week 1

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Life goes by fast. Too fast. I’m only just now realizing that my parents truly did know what they were talking about. I see how fast time goes when I look at my two little boys who aren’t so little anymore…they are growing up too fast. I’m sure you other parents know what I’m talking about.

This brings me to my project for 2010. A bunch of other photographers on my photography board were talking about doing a 52 week project where they take a picture every week for a year. Like other photographers, I forget to pick up my camera and take pictures of my own kids without worrying if the lighting is right, if they have dirt on their faces, or what the background looks like. So, this blog is dedicated to pictures of my kids and how they really are. There might be dirt on their face, the house may not be perfectly spotless, but these pictures are memorable. I may edit them, I may not, depending on the picture, but I’m hoping my boys will be able to look back on these for years to come.
