With my new life change (a new baby!) I have decided to book fewer weddings and offer more family sessions – and my 6 year career as a photographer, I have found that long sessions with children are rather unnecessary. With the exception of some, children usually have about a half hour to 45 minute attention span for photos, which is why I am offering shorter sessions, yet long enough to still capture a ton of amazing moments for your family.
These sessions will be focused heavily on the natural and candid bonds you have with your family or loved ones. Playing in the sunshine, giggling, tickling and laughing. I want to capture the pure joy and love you have for one another.
To get updates on future sessions and first dibs on booking one, please register your email here. I promise I won’t spam you with tons of emails.
So excited for this new chapter for Amanda Marie Studio. I can’t wait to meet you and your loved ones!

What if it rains?
If it rains, I will add a back up date to the calendar. If it doesn’t work for all families, then we will find a time that works for all of us, even if that means having to do a few different dates that work for each person/family.
Why do you require a print investment to get the digital files?
In my opinion, too many photographers these days are giving away the high resolution files without any prints. It makes me sad to think of how many people I have photographed that still have their files sitting on their computer, and not hanging on their walls. I believe it is my duty as a photographer to make sure that not only you are having your images printed, but also printed from a trusted professional lab to make sure the photograph looks (color and quality) as it’s intended to look.
Because of this, I keep my prints at a very reasonable price. If you are curious about print prices, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a sample list.
Where is Longfellow Gardens?
Longfellow Gardens is about a block away from Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis. It is a gorgeous valley with a lot of different terrain and scenery to choose from. I chose this location because it has the perfect light, it has parking, and it also has a lot do do around the area incase you wanted to make this into a family event. Minnehaha falls, Dairy Queen, and Sea Salt are all within a block away.
Why are your sessions so late?
I schedule all sessions about 2-3 hours before sundown because that is the best time for photos. I do however understand that kids have bed times. My hopes is that those with the very little kiddos will schedule the earlier sessions, otherwise maybe mom and dad can make an exception for one night for a later bed time. (in return you’ll get some super gorgeous images and a tired baby later on who will sleep suuuuper well 😉
Will you offer these in the Fall?
Yes absolutely! All though I may call them Fall Sessions? Or sunset sessions? Haven’t decided yet 😉
Will you offer props?
I try to focus on more natural and honest images, so unfortunately I will not offer props like baskets and signs etc. If you have something you’d like to incorporate into the shoot feel free to bring it along.
Are you still offering full sessions?
Yes, I am still offering my normal portrait sessions that can be booked any time. Those are $400 last about 1-1.5 hours. My full sessions usually generate about 60+ edited images. Again files are included with a $50 print investment.
