I am Amanda Skelte and am the woman behind the camera at Gingersnap Photographs.

I used to just say that “I am the blonde pregnant one!” when people were coming to sessions and would need to find me.

…because I always was.

But now, 5 girls from¬†8 years old down, my only descriptor is blonde – so I figured an “about me” with a picture would be best. (Not that I will look like this photo. BUT apparently people don’t take headshots in tank tops and comfy pants). You can follow us on instagram – theskelteseven¬†or my personal family blog is

I live in McKinney, TX and am from Plano. In between then, I went to Baylor (sic ’em) and I have a degree in English literature. I like listening to comedy, drinking wine, dancing in the kitchen with the kids. I have been married for 7 years now and each year has been packed with new adventures.

I spend most of my weekdays in the car driving kids to school, events, dance, softball, doctor appointments, or the store. I enjoy the hustle and bustle of everyday – and that’s why I enjoy shooting lifestyle sessions so much. There’s always so much going on in my house that taking a few photos along the way is such a treasure to look back on. The real moments… the in-between… those are where the truth and love lies.

I love to teach – so if you just got your camera and need a DSLR class to figure out how to shoot in M or if you are just now starting your business and need some guidance, I am her for you. Check out all of my mentoring packages!

I am an open book – so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. Follow on facebook for the most up to date information.
