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.

Morgan | Riceville High School Class of 2013

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Miss Morgan last night. Isn’t she beautiful? I say time and time again that I’m glad I’m not a senior nowadays – these girls are just too dang pretty! She was a real sport climbing into ditches and doing what I asked. We even contemplated jumping a fence for a cool building, but we decided against it…maybe next time. Morgan plans on going to college to do ultrasounds of the heart. She is active in basketball, track, and softball and ridiculously sweet.

Morgan, thanks for choosing me to capture your special milestone in your life. Enjoy the sneak peek.

Davin | Taopi, Minnesota Senior Photographer

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I got the pleasure of photographing Davin when he and his family were back here from Colorado last week for Thanksgiving and hunting. It was a busy week, but we managed to sneak off for about a half an hour to snag some great pictures (or at least I think they are). He is growing up to be so handsome…and he can peel potatoes, too! :) We had a good time. He is planning on going to college next year so he can play football.

I like all of these so much that I don’t think I can choose a favorite.

Kaila :: Albert Lea High School Senior

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kaila for her Senior pictures last night. We met in a new city, so I had a lot of fun trying out some new locations. This girl was adventurous and up for anything! It made for a really fun photo shoot and some really fun and cute pictures. Kaila plans on heading off to college, but not too far so she can be a phone call away to her mom.
Enjoy your sneak peek and senior year Kaila! Thanks for letting me capture this fun time in your life and being up for anything!

Ariel :: 2011 Senior Representative :: Albert Lea High School

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

I met up with Ariel last night in Albert Lea. I’m not familiar with the town, so it was quite an adventure trying to find places to take fun shots. Ariel was a real trooper, though, and I think we ended up with some great pictures. Ariel will be a senior next year and is hoping to go into Psychology.

J :: 2010 Senior Photographer

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

J is a senior this year at a local high school. We met up a few weeks ago for part of his session and we’ll be seeing him again after we get some snow. He’s a snowboarder and wants to get some shots in the snow. Not being a big fan of snow, I’m surprised I agreed to take pictures in the cold. BRR..
J here are some pictures for you. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.
