Class of 2016 at studio 60 photographic art

I have to admit… The reason I love photographing the High School Senior market HAS TO BE the diversity of interests, life goals, backgrounds, dreams and ambitions of the girls [and guys] that I photograph…

Getting them to tell me what their future plans are… and helping them create fun and meaningful memories of where they are right now is a powerful place to be! So many times I feel that people just slip in to a rut without realizing the adventures that are surely to come their way.

Being bold and taking chances is all a part of life, and I hope that EVERY one who has ever had a dream, makes a conscious effort to work towards it:)

A favorite quote from Maya Angelou ::

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

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!

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.
