I can't believe we're already having this sweet little one's ONE YEAR session! I've been photographing her for her mom + dad's maternity session, her newborn session, 6 months, and now one year session. I can't believe she's officially completed her Grow With Me Collection (insert waterworks)!

A HUGE thanks to this family for selecting Amanda Oakes Photography to document all these major milestones for you!

These little girls have been to several sessions with me, and I just LOVE seeing them each time. My favorite part of this business is the relationships that are formed. I'm truly grateful to not only document this family's pictures, but also to know them!

These kiddos hold a very special place in my heart! We've known them for several years now, and with COVID going on we haven't been able to spend nearly enough time together lately. It was so good to see their sweet faces even if it was only for a few minutes for pictures.

Could these three girls possibly be any sweeter?!?!

It was such a treat seeing them and their wonderful mom at the studio last weekend to capture some wonderful Christmas portraits.

Their mom also happens to be a wonderful photographer here in the Quad Cities - Sarah Sunstrom Photography.

I'm thrilled to announced @AmandaOakesPhotography is now offering "Personal Branding Sessions". This is a new area for me in my business, and I'm incredibly excited to announce these!

As a business professional, your brand is not only your business + products; it's also YOU! There's simply no better way to reflect your brand + product than with professional images of yourself!

My beautiful friend, Caitlin, agreed to be my model for this new endeavor, and she was a COMPLETE rockstar! We wanted to do several different looks, and I'm so thrilled she was up for everything from outdoor portraits to that really pretty pop of white setup in the studio.

So, with that being said, if you are in need of a revamp of images for yourself, your business, your products, etc. - give me a call or send me a message. These work incredibly well for your social media presence, website, business cards, etc!

Nothing tells a story better than bold professional photos!

This adorable baby girl was all smiles once she watched a video of herself on her parent's phone! Why is it that kids get such a laugh out of watching themselves in videos - lol?!?!? It's literally the cutest thing ever!

I've been seeing these adorable Santa images in all the photography Facebook groups I'm a part of, and I think they are so neat!

SOOOOOO - If you have been a client of mine during 2020, let me know which image from your session you'd like, and I'd be ecstatic to send over one to you at NO charge to show my appreciation for you supporting my small business during this trying time!

This year has been quite the challenge (to put it lightly), so hopefully this brings a little Christmas cheer your way! ❤ ❤ ❤

Poll: Comment below with your favorite image out of the 4 below! As a photographer I feel like I gravitate one way, and as a mom I gravitate a different way. So which one do you love the most?

I literally had this session today and just knew there was NO WAY I could select only one to show this sweet family! I ADORE this sweet baby girl! I'm so thrilled her family selected the Grow With Me Collection so that I'll be able to photograph her over the course of her first year!

***DISCLAIMER*** The bottom right image is a composite meaning I actually had my hands on this sweet babe the entire time, and I photoshopped the images to create a composite image (one that looks like I didn't have my hands on her at all).

If you're interested in booking a newborn session or the Grow With Me Collection, now is the time to do it!

Sometimes during sessions with little ones, we just need a little break to play games and have some fun - little do they know these moments always make for the best candid portraits!

I have been photographing these little tikes for the last 3 years now, and this year was probably one of my favorite times! They came with their cowboy hats, and if you know me, I truly think there isn't anything cuter than a little kid in a cowboy hat! These two stole my heart!

Thank YOU for selecting @AmandaOakesPhotography to once again document your sweet family!

I can honestly tell you that my cheeks hurt from laughing with these two during their engagement session a couple weeks ago. I LOVE both of their contagious personalities and overall happy demeanor. I knew from the first time I met them at the studio for their wedding consultation that they were going to be so much fun to work with, and well, their engagement session proved me right!

I'm looking so incredibly forward to their wedding next year! Thank YOU two for choosing Amanda Oakes Photography to document your beautiful love story!

This adorable couple was actually married earlier this year, but due to Covid, they had a couple vendor changes. Lucky for me, I booked them just a couple weeks before the ceremony! We didn't exactly have time to fit in an 'engagement' session so we documented their beautiful ceremony at a family's residence, and then decided to do 'engagement/married fall session' lol! Next year they will be having a beautiful reception, and I'm beyond thrilled to document that for them as well.

BTW - I swear it looks like their fur baby is smiling in bottom image :-)!!!
