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.

I Fall to Pieces…| Southeastern Minnesota Family Photographer

I don’t really fall to pieces, but seriously, how freaking adorable is this family? I was trying to come up with a song title with “fall” in it, and this is the first one I came up with. Don’t mind me, it’s been a long day… daylight savings time has done me in! (It could also be the three little boys that rule my house – it’s a toss up).

Back to the session. I met up with this family tonight. I’ve done two other sessions with them, and every time they are just so adorable. You can check out one of their previous sessions here. Little M, L, and L have really grown up before my eyes. I know I’ve said it a million times, but I LOVE my job as a photographer! I LOVE being able to see families grow! 🙂

Silhouette shots are my favorite!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the naturalness (is that a word?) of this family shot. LOVE!
