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

storage!  

 

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 already fell in love!  When you book

with our studio, whether it is Maternity, Newborn, Children or Family, your session is our priority.  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)!
