About Me

Ann Marie Grocholski at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

Ann Marie is a Minneapolis photographer and Story Teller

Hello from Minnesota! Welcome to the AMG Photography FAmily!

I am a mom of three amazing girls and have been married to my best friend for over 20 years! I love to travel and am a Peace Corps Volunteer veteran. My goal is to show my kiddos as much of the world as possible before they go out on their own adventure.

I am a photographer and writer with a background in non-profit management. I am blessed to be able to combine the art that I love with my passion for serving others. My work is in two parts: one is my family photography business, and the other is a program called Images of Strength and Hope which serves families and individuals who have special needs or are overcoming trauma. I created Images of Strength and Hope as a program to preserve the stories of individuals facing life’s greatest challenges as a way for them and others to see their courage, strength, love, aspirations, and, above all, hope. These stories have the power to heal and empower others!

I have a passion for telling people’s stories whether a family with a newborn baby, a young woman embarking on her senior year of high school or a family who wants to preserve the fun and chaos of having toddlers. I believe that photography has the power to capture the unique personality of each individual while preserving their story at that moment in time. My photography goes beyond posing, is incredibly fun, intimate, and full of love! I invest time with each family and individual so that their session truly represents who they are and what they hope to receive through these photos. Please reach out to me at any time! I love to hear from my clients who truly are a part of my family!
