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

I love all things summer {Minnesota Family Photographer}

Ohhhhhh I just love summer evenings… the dusky sky, the cool evening air, the mosquitoes and deer flies… Ok, never mind those. I just love summer and I love capturing a beautiful family in the great outdoors.

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.

I’m absolutely in looooooove with this image! Please Universe… if the only photos I get to create are ones with mommas and daddies loving on their sweet babies like this… then so be it!

Are you looking for a reason to celebrate YOURself?

Sometimes we get caught up in our lives and forget about the most important person we know…. ourselves.

It’s easy to give, give, give, give, give to others… whether it’s a boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, children, friends or even family.

Soon you’re ready to move to a remote island with nothing more than a good book and a barrel of rum just to recapture some sanity.

…..aaaaand well…. most of us don’t have that luxury:)

Realizing you need to take care of yourself FIRST so you can continue to love on others is really an eye opening thing!

Sometimes (and I know this is trivial) it would even be nice to go to the bathroom. Alone. Knowing full well the house won’t explode whilst your children are unattended for the 3 minutes you ask for!!;)

Anyway… back to my thoughts!

Some of us are transforming our bodies to be healthier. Some are transitioning through life’s phases. Some are just appreciating what they have and loving themselves with all they’ve got.

…and how great that you’ve documented your journey so that your children, spouse, family & loved ones will remember this 1-5-20-50 years from now.

What? No photos? I’m sure you have a phone, tablet or other device capable of the act, right?

The problem with that is getting beautiful images that are displayed, and held in your hands, for you to literally hand to your family. Think that’s not so important? When’s the last time your phone died and you lost all your precious pictures??????? See? I told you.

….buuuut enough about me…

I want you to schedule a portrait shoot if you’ve done something courageous, momentous, amazing or just survived a day being human.

Be in photographs for your kids and family.

You are someone who is loved and I want to capture you for all time.

Miss Joie {Detroit Lakes Baby Photographer}

Miss Joie visited with her momma and grandma for a sweet little milestone session… I love capturing these ‘in-between’ times, because they’re just so sweet!

…and did this girl KNOW how to blow some mean bubbles:)
