Quad Cities Fine Art Photographer - Specializing in Newborn, Family, and Wedding Photography

FAMILY INFO

As a Quad Cities family photographer, I believe photographs are the ultimate gift we can offer. I want to provide each of my clients the ultimate experience that’s nothing like you’ve ever had before. I offer everything from a complimentary pre-consultation to determine just the right location and style you want, to designing just the right sizes of wall art to create an incredible gallery on the walls of your home.

My portraits are not only posed; there are candid moments as well. Perhaps a mother snuggling her little ones. A family laughing and playing together. As much as we want to freeze time, it’s not possible. But these portraits will freeze that time and provide you something to look back on and cherish for years to come wonderfully told in beautiful custom portraits.

The best things in life are the people we love, the places we've been, and the

MEMORIES WE’VE MADE

– FAQ –

Will you help me prepare for my session?

Absolutely! Good planning is the best way to create a successful portrait session, and I make it easy with a personal consultation via phone, email, or in my studio. Our pre-session is our chance to get to know each other and to coordinate all the details for the timing and location of your session. It’s also an ideal time to discuss your specific goals, and how you plan to display and share your family portraits. I’m happy to offer expert guidance for the style of your session, what to wear, the ideal location, and the best ways to get the most from your beautiful new family portraits — everything from decorating your home with canvases, to the best options for framing, displaying, and sharing your prints.

Do I need to bring anything with me for the session?

Nope! I supply everything for your session. In my studio, I offer clients the most beautiful, vintage style props to coordinate with your style and location or studio setup. Everything you see on my website is hand picked by me and provided by my studio.

Why should I hire Amanda Oakes Photography?

Photography is an art form, and I have the skill, experience and training in this field to make the difference between a nice picture and a breathtaking heirloom for you. The reminders of love, laughter, and lives shared. Authentic stories of your family. Wonderfully told in beautiful custom portraits. I’m a storyteller, and these are the images I create. For me, photography is an unconditional labor of love. And family portraits hold a very special place in my heart. It’s why I love to capture the unguarded, fleeting moments that hold such special meaning for the families I photograph. Timeless photos that you will be proud to display in your home as everyday, happy reminders of moments you will cherish forever. Let’s capture your cherished moments together.

How soon do I need to book?

I recommend booking as soon as possible to get your session onto my calendar. Being a custom, fine art photographer, I only accept a limited number of sessions each month so that I'm able to deliver my clients the very best quality service and experiences. A signed contract and session fee paid in full commissions me as your photographer and secures your session on my calendar.
