Family & Summer in the Lakes Area

We’re heading in to SUMMER and soaking up as much of the beautiful weather as we can during these precious few months!

Most families are planning their get-togethers, family reunions, birthday parties and casual gatherings at the lakes and of course, thinking of family photos (right?!?!)!

Whilst an individualized family session is always ideal (to get to know the family/kids, etc) to be able to create something truly unique and beautiful… sometimes it’s just as important to document everyone being together.

It’s always a great honor to photograph my clients, because I know how much the images are cherished.

My sales pitch is short ~ HIRE A PHOTOGRAPHER to photograph your family:)

Contact Amanda at for more info!!

Serving the Otter Tail & Becker County areas.

We love our Dads!

Sometimes it’s hard to get the Dads in front of the camera… but what a fantastic memory you will have when you do! Don’t miss out on this chance to book a session with dad, grandpa, uncle… or any fella who steps in to love on your kids:)As a THANK YOU, you’ll receive a beautiful Desk Art Print for displaying or I can wrap it up to have it ready for sharing, too!

Spring MINI Sessions at the studio… with 10% of the package cost GOING BACK to two of our area schools.

Now ~ invites were given to the families of those two schools, but if you would like to book this for yourself, just tell me which school your child attends and I will gladly donate to their school as well! That’s $15 dollars from EVERY session back to the school… think of all the glitter that could buy!!! LOL

With that being said, there’s an awesome, steal-of-a-deal, super savings, bonus, think-of-the-kids incentive to UPGRADE that MINI session, BUT! you’ll have to call or email me to find out what that is:)

Perham Just For Kix (perham | detroit lakes photographer)

This weekend wrapped up the NINTH YEAR I’ve been watching my oldest daughter in Just For Kix. Seriously. Time is flying!
These girls are so fun to watch, not only their routines, but their skills, friendships and dedication to dancing as well.

Your Beautiful Portraits (perham | detroit lakes photographer)

I had a genuine, eye opening, conversation the other day with a (pretty much) complete stranger and wow – I can’t get it out of my mind.

We were talking about business and what it is that ‘studio 60′ does, and in a simple comment I realized I am on my right path.

What this young lady I was speaking to said – while looking around my studio at the beautiful images on the walls, with an album in her hands – “This… THIS… is what I wanted when I’ve had portraits done before, and I didn’t get it.”

The “IT” being… a beautiful photo she could hold in her hands. Something to share with her kids as they grow older. A memory frozen in time, but not just ‘on a disk’ to never be looked at. An experience that allows you to look at your images and remember that exact moment, that place in your life.

In a world with it’s impatient desires, and a camera in nearly every phone.. it’s no wonder people lose the meaning of a real portrait; and it’s my job to help you see it’s importance.

Let me ask you. If you were to walk in to my studio and see a static, USB drive hanging on the wall / or lying on the table – would you ohhhh and aaahhhh over it? Probably not the same way you stop and look at all the beautiful faces, memories and moments frozen in time that are there right now.

It’s no wonder I’ve had a camera in my hand my whole life, or that images are so important to me. It’s so much more than a business. It’s telling stories by making a photograph you’ll treasure forever… and I’d love to hear your story.

Come, sit. Tell me your story.

Celebrate Mom at studio 60 (perham, minnesota portrait photographer)

I can’t believe that summer is looming around the corner! It’s wonderful to bask in the warmer weather and see GREEN after a long winter. I’m not excited about mowing – even though I love to mow – but who has time? …I digress:)

With Mother’s Day only a few weeks away, we want to #celebratemom, and what better way to do that than to create a beautiful mother/daughter portrait.. or even better, create an image that spans the generations. Give your daughters a lasting memory of being surrounded by such beautiful women like their mothers and grandmothers!

Real. Classic. Beautiful.

Our offer is for a makeover for two women, a complimentary wardrobe consultation, a photoshoot with Amanda and your premiere ordering appointment at the studio, for $150 – regularly $250.

Prints and products are available separately, and with any portrait purchase you will receive a beautiful art metal desk print as well. One of *my* favorite products!
