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.

Road Trip | St. Paul Family Photographer

I was contacted by A, who is related to my husband, but I’m not quite sure how. I’ll have to remember to ask him when he wakes up….but I digress. A contacted me saying they were interested in wedding pictures. It just so happened that I was heading up to the cities yesterday for a wedding anyway, so it was a quick jaunt over to St. Paul to do their session. One never knows about weather in Minnesota during the fall, but it turned out to be a gorgeous weekend and a great day to do some pictures. I love the one where they are holding hands. I think they said it will be 35 years in December…I could be off, but it’s awesome that they are still holding hands. <3
