Photo day


Time for your session! This is a special time for you to just be in the moment with your loved ones.

Photo Delivery


Within two weeks you'll receive a gallery link in your inbox. From here you'll have access to full res files and you can order prints to your heart's desire!

Chose from a 30, 45 or 60 minute session. If you are inquiring about an extended family session we may need more than one hour. Your session may be held in your home or yard, at a favorite outdoor park, or from a suggested location that I've scoped out already!

Whether you're hoping to snap a few photos for your holiday cards, a milestone session for your little one, or capture a little bit of the chaos of your life, there is something for you here.

Session Information

All sessions include an all-inclusive gallery with your custom edited images. The number of photos will vary depending on the session you choose. (There are usually far more than you'd imagine!) From your gallery you'll have the ability to download and share your images, as well as order prints. (I only recommend ordering prints from your gallery. I work with a lab to ensure your images are accurate in color and quality.) Travel fees will apply to sessions over 25 miles from my 55406 location. A non-refundable retainer fee is due when booking your session. Taxes will be applied. Your session will not be considered booked until it is paid. If you should need to reschedule or there is a weather event please be in contact with Amanda asap to make new arrangements.


What should we wear?

Spring/Summer: Flowy dresses, light colors, pastels, small prints, linen, fabrics that move easily, cream, blush and tan colors.

Autumn/Winter: Dark, Earthy tones, mustard, olive, tan, rust + chunky knit sweaters & hats.

Avoid: Neon/bold colors, logos, pictures and words on clothing.

What if my kid won't sit still?

I have almost never had a child sit still for a session. In fact, I think it's unrealistic ask. My sessions are filled with movement and freedom and I always capture the best photos while they're being themselves.

How soon will we get our photos?

I love to send a little sneak peak within 24 hours of your session. But your entire gallery should be ready within two weeks.

Where will the session take place?

If you don't already have a location in mind, I have several outdoor locations scattered around the Twin Cities that make great backdrops.

For winter locations I have a few indoor suggestions as well.

What time of day are family sessions?

The window within the last 90 minutes before sunset will always be the most ideal. If your kids simply cannot hang, the early morning is also a great option. If you are okay without the golden light we can choose a time where your kids feel well rested and happy.

When should I book my session?

There is no time like today! Once you get in touch we will get the ball rolling and you'll get one more thing checked off your list.

Please do not wait to document your family. You are perfect just as you are in this moment!
