it's not what we have in life, it's who we have in life that matters.
Not everyone can say they love what they do for a living. Amanda Steffke Photography started as a passion to capture special moments behind the lens. As soon as I discovered the great responsibility and joy that comes from photography, I was hooked. Capturing the essence of love and life through photos became my mission and I couldn't ask for a better business experience. My clients mean the world to me and each and every one has helped me develop into the photographer I am today.
I am a seasoned professional photographer in the Central Michigan area with a studio space in Downtown Clare.
I live in the very small town of Beal City with my husband, and our three children. In my spare time you can find me watching reruns of parks & rec, updating our 1880's farmhouse, playing on the floor with my littles, or catching a concert with my husband.
moments with the ones you love most
As a mama, I know how important it is to document your family as you grow. I also know that having your portraits taken can be somewhat stressful. My job, well, besides pushing the actual shutter button, is to help you enjoy this process and experience. I have many tips and tricks in my back pocket to help with your kiddos and ultimately want to capture you all exactly the way you are at this time and I want to showcase that in the best way! That experience comes from seasons of learning what works best and truly sets me a part from others.
A print release is provided with your purchased digital images to print those on your own, however, I always suggest purchasing your prints and products directly through me and my professional lab. The worst thing you want to do is invest so much into your beautiful images and then turn around and print them at a big box store that doesn't do them any justice. Orders can be placed by just letting me know what you'd like, or can be purchased directly from your online gallery.
Yes! Whether it's in my studio, over the phone or just through e-mail, I'll walk you through every step of planning! I want your session to be all about you, so discussing your dreams and wishes helps me plan for the perfect session!
I use the newest canon mirrorless camera body along with a variety of high quality lenses. All of my cameras, lenses, and lighting equipment has a backup in the rare event that anything should happen to one of my pieces. Rest assured, there is a backup for everything, including your actual images.

Absolutely! Styling a session is one of my favorite things! As an ASP client, you get exclusive access to my styling system where you can take a short style questionnaire and get personalized results delivered right to you with direct links to purchase wardrobe items!
