It's my pleasure to capture memories of you and your loved ones. My 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 as comfortable and as and enjoyable as possible.
If you would like to schedule a photo shoot, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a text or voice mail at (612) 961-8310. You can also send a message through my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AmyBethPederson. 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 rainy, uncomfortably cold, or unusually foggy 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 outdoor destination or in the comfort of your home. I'm willing to photograph anywhere within reasonable driving distance of my home. When you contact me to schedule, please include your location so I can determine the feasibility of a shoot. I am more than willing to meet halfway, depending on your location.

WHAT TO WEAR
My recommendation for what to wear is to simply be yourself. Wear something you feel 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 and paid in full immediately following our photo shoot. You can pay with CASH, CHECK payable to Amy Pederson or Your Story Studio, or I can send you an invoice via email which you can pay with credit card!
During our shoot, I take as many photographs as I'm able. After the shoot, I spend quite a bit of time culling through the collection of photographs. In other words, I go through ALL the photographs - usually three times through - and select ONLY the very best for professional editing. Please note that the number of photos I professionally edit depends on the session you selected. Once I have professionally edited all the very best photographs from your session, I upload them to a photo sharing site. You will receive a link to your collection along with a password; there you will be able to download your edited photos. You have full rights to use your edited photographs however you wish.
I've been taking photographs for 35 years. In fact, it's the only thing I've done my whole life without fail. I've owned my dream camera for six years and am in my sixth 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!
