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.

Fun Farm Family :: Southeastern Minnesota Family Photographer

This was my second session with the cute D family. I showed up today at their farm and met Mr. L, the newest addition to the family. The whole family is super nice, and it was fun being able to do their pictures again. M and L remembered me, and we even got M to smile a bit more this time. I told her she looks beautiful when she smiles! 🙂 Cousin A was there to get some pictures, too, and while she wasn’t a huge fan of the camera, we managed to coax some smiles from her, too. All in all, I had a fun time on a gorgeous day! D family, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
