About Us

Branch & Twig Photography is a collaboration between Amanda Penner and Andrea Sawatzky, two stay-at-home-moms with decidedly creative natures. They are based in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, and are willing and eager to travel wherever their photography opportunities take them.

Amanda and Andrea specialize in natural light portrait and lifestyle photography. For further information regarding their photography style & focus,

Andrea: Hi! We've probably never met, so please allow me to introduce myself. I've been married to my husband, Joey, for seven years, and in that seven years, we've moved numerous times. When we were expecting our first child, our main baby purchase wasn't a crib or a stroller, but our first DSLR camera. My passion for photography has grown as I've taught myself how to make the most of my camera and photograph my children in a way that I will cherish for a lifetime. My goal in photography is to capture people and their loved ones in a way that is natural, beautiful, and worthy of representing the memories they hold dearest. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me drinking coffee, snuggling my three little munchkins, or playing Stock Ticker with my husband. I hope to have the pleasure of working with you in the future!

Amanda: Hello! Some of you may have known me by my previous photography business, Amanda Penner Photography. Now, Andrea and I are combining our efforts and enjoying the benefits of learning from one another. Our goal is to capture the most precious moments in our clients' lives using as much natural light and beautiful scenery as possible. My passion for photography developed at a very early age when parents gave me my first camera as a very young girl. Now, with two young daughters of my own, I can only hope that they find a hobby that they are as passionate about! Our little family calls Weyburn our home, but we love to explore many landscapes, near and far. When my camera isn't pointed at people, it's usually taking in the beauty of the great outdoors. Thanks for taking the time to read about us and our little photography venture, and I hope we can meet in person, -- and soon!
