Robby | Hastings, Minnesota High School Senior Photographer

Mother Nature supplied a beautiful summer evening for capturing images of Robby with some of his favorite things in the North Country!


We might need to photoshop a state record fish in there somewhere!

Ahhhhh summer, I wish you weren’t so fleeting! How I love photographing in the beautiful outdoors!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As most of us know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and THIS year, I wanted to come up with a (hopeful) tradition… to get people in the studio and get past the excuses.

We all talk about our bodies – the good, bad and the ugly – and how SMALL are some of those worries when we probably know someone: a mother, daughter, or sister perhaps… who has had part of her body cut away from this disease.

I want to put a call out for all women, but especially those who’ve been dealing with cancer.
I want to share your story.
I want to share how beautiful YOU are, even if you might not feel as such.
Please throw away the thoughts of “Maybe later”, because sometimes, there is no later.

So please, be brave and take the opportunity to EXIST IN PHOTOGRAPHS.

You are someone who is loved, and I want you to be remembered for all time.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh what a beautiful day…. what a beautiful family:)

It’s so wonderful to spend time with people and just shoot the bull… have a brew… and play pin-ball:)
Much love friends!

In denial that our children grow up {Perham, Minnesota Family Photographer}

I will be honest. There are MANY times I just don’t see the forest for the trees. Sure, I’m watching my own girls growing up, becoming their own person and for the love, one is nearly taller than me and I ask myself, “when the hell did that happen?”
So when I see friends and their kids… I’m generally thinking the same thing… It’s amazing, since we never age, right?
Meet the Guck’s.

Handsome boys.


….and I dug this one out of the archives because momma wanted to recreate this shot from 2009. TWO THOUSAND AND NINE!!! Where have those five years gone??

It was great visiting and hanging out with the mosquitoes:)Aaaaahhhh summer!

Have you captured YOUR family yet this year?;)Call me :: 218.346.5420

Miss Lily {Perham, Minnesota Baby Photographer}

Miss Lily is part of our Baby Portrait Collection, which means I get to see this little cherub at key points during her FIRST year and watch her grow up!


…can’t forget big sister:)She is quite the helper!
Ohhhhhhh babies, babies… Don’t you just want to pinch her cheeks?:D

If you (or someone you know) are expecting, and would like to learn more about our Baby Portrait Collection, please contact Amanda directly at amanda@studio60photographicart.com

I’m a traditionalist… does that make me boring?

…and the answer to that is a big, fat… NO.

I prefer to think of it as timeless. Melding old and new to create something that will NOT fall out of style with the next craze, or totally humiliate those involved, cringing over their fashion choices! HA!

What’s wrong with a simple, beautiful portrait? Nothing. Because it will last forever in your family’s hands and probably outlive you. This is why I love all the beautiful, TOUCHABLE, heirloom products available that will preserve your memories.

Real. Classic. Beautiful {Documenting Life} Photography!

My email is :: amanda@studio60photographicart.com if you want to get in touch about creating something for your family.

The End.:)
