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.

Snow | Rochester, Minnesota Family Photographer

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

My goodness it’s been a long time since I posted on here. I really need to do a better job of updating my blog instead of posting everything on Facebook. That will be one of my goals for 2013. Did I say that last year, too? 🙂 Life gets too busy on me!

Anyway, you may recognize this adorable family from previous sessions. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them several times and when they suggested a snow session – I thought, “hey, why not!” We could not have asked for better weather considering it’s January and Minnesota. The kids really did great for the 45 minutes we were out playing in the snow. This was a new location and lots of fun things to explore – and we didn’t see everything. You can bet I’ll be using this spot more often!

How adorable is this family? I say it often, but I really do love my job and the clients I photograph. 🙂
