It's my pleasure to capture memories of you and your loved ones. My end goal is to offer a beautiful set of photographs that will bring joy for a lifetime, and leave a legacy of love and hope for future generations. You can expect photo shoots with me to be casual, personal, affordable and tailored to your special needs. I will do everything in my power to make each photo shoot comfortable and enjoyable.


If you would like to schedule a photo shoot, please contact me via email at, or leave a text or voice mail at (612) 961-8310. You can also send a message through my Facebook page at If you have any questions about photo shoots, please feel free to ask!


Outdoor photo shoots are weather permitting. If we schedule photos and the weather looks uncomfortably cold, rainy or unusually snowy the day of the shoot, we will determine a mutually agreed upon date to reschedule.


All photo shoots are on location, at an agreed upon destination, or in the comfort of your home. I'm willing to photograph anywhere within reasonable driving distance in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul. When you contact me to schedule, please include your location so I can determine the feasability of a shoot. I am more than willing to meet halfway, depending on your location!

My best recommendation for what to wear is to simply be yourself. Wear something you feel completely comfortable in, something you feel beautiful in, something that represents you and your personal style. Anything that's hip and colorful, natural and neutral, cozy and comfy will work! Be fun. Be classy. Be wacky. I want to capture the most authentic version of YOU. So whoever you are, rock that style! 


Payment should be made in person, immediately following our photo shoot. You can pay CASH or CHECK payable to Amy Pederson.


During our photo shoot, I'll take as many photographs as I'm able. After the shoot, I will edit out all the bad, blurry and just okay photographs. I'll leave you with all the good, great and awesome photographs from the session! You will receive a CD with full rights to photographs. See information above for estimates on how many photographs you will receive with each package.


I've been taking photographs relentlessly for 30+ years. In fact, it's the only thing I've done my whole life without fail. I've owned my dream camera for 2 1/2 years and am in my third year of professional photography. I don't promise perfection or high-end portraiture. What I do promise is heart, hard work, a knack for quickly developing rapport with you and your family, and a bunch of photographs I hope and pray you'll treasure for a lifetime!
