Jeremey Puskar, co-owner and squeaky toy extraordinaire! My job during your session is to make the dad's not
totally dread having family pictures taken and to make your child smile. I am the man behind the scenes helping with
just about anything that comes up. You will see me at every session to lend that helping hand.
Holly Naughton, of Holly Naughton Photography, is our featured beach photographer. Holly started her photography
career two years ago following a desire to keep her father's memory alive. As a young girl, Holly enjoyed using her
artistic ability to create art. She has a degree in Career and Technical Education and took many art courses
throughout her education, including stained glass, painting and sculpture. Holly is a natural light photographer that
utilizes nature as a canvas to create photographic memories that families will enjoy for years to come.
A little more about our studio:
Amanda Puskar Photography officially opened its' doors in June 2011 and we have been growing ever
since! When we first began, our "studio" was in our 2 bedroom loft apartment! To do any studio setups we had to
move our entire living room into the kitchen just to have room! 3 years ago we moved into our house and opened a
home studio that was just 140 sq ft. We very quickly outgrew that space too! In August, we took our home studio
and transformed it into a 1,000 sq ft studio in downtown Panama City! This new studio space allows us to have more
space for shooting, more shooting opportunities, sibling space during newborn sessions AND more room for prop
What makes Amanda Puskar Photography stand out?
If you have come to my About Me page, then you have already seen my work and you have already fell in love! When you
book with our studio, whether it is Maternity, Newborn, Children or Family, your session is our priority. We custom make 99% of our props from benches and boxes to hats and headbands for our newborn sessions. When you come to our studio, you
are getting a 100% custom designed session. Our sessions are laid back and comfortable. You haven't just booked a
photographer, you are making a new friend! I am a lover of sun flare. I love candid shots of the children playing by the
water, of dad tossing the littles in the air, of mom and dad tickling the children... Natural Smiles!
I am so excited to meet you and your child(ren)!
