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.

Handsome | Rochester, MN Family Photographer

Handsome is the best and only way I can describe the little boy (and parents) that I met up with today. Little J is almost 18 months and is seriously one of the cutest little guys I’ve seen in a very long time {excluding my own three sons, of course}. With his adorable curly hair and big brown eyes, J is going to be a heart breaker. The H family was visiting Rochester for a short time, and I had the pleasure of meeting up with them at the Salem Glen Vineyard located just outside of Rochester. It was a beautiful location (check out the fabulous doors on the place) and if I was a wine drinker, I’m pretty positive they would have had something I’d enjoy. 🙂

We played some “peek – a – boo”.

Loved the vintage look for this one!

See, told you there were some beautiful doors!

Thanks for looking!
