Hello, Welcome to AM Blended Families

Blended family “a family consisting of a couple and their children from this and all previous relationships.” This is my family and we are a blended one and there are a lot of families out there like ours who are doing great things.

I wanted to create a place to highlight not only my family and our journey, but other blended families out there and their journeys as well. 

This will be a space where we can all share our stories, share our support and just uplift one another.

Please join me on this journey. If you'd like to be part of this movement, or if you and your blended family would like to be featured on AM Blended Families, please send an email to blended@armintamckinney.com

Thank you and welcome!

I'm a mom, photographer and I love to travel!


I picked up my first camera when I was 12-years-old and I fell in love with the idea of freezing a moment in time. I reveled in being able to look at the picture and relive that moment in a person’s life.

I decided to change my passion for photography from a hobby into a business and started shooting professionally in 2005.

To me, the best pictures are candid shots. They show what is true to the individual and I love capturing that raw emotion. I cater my shoots to fit the individual or family’s specific needs and bring their unique vision to life. It’s important to me to build a bond with my clients and it is a joy to capture their true essence while watching them and their families grow. I work with an amazing team, who shares my passion for capturing and creating moments for our clients to cherish for a lifetime.


My son, Miles, accompanies me on many of my shoots and I strive to be a good example for him. I want him to learn the importance of paying attention to details, building positive relationships with others, and understanding the importance of giving back by helping others in need.

It is through the strong support of my family and my faith in God that I am able to share my gift with those who need it most.

You may or may not also know that I am part of a blended family. I was raised in one and now raising my son in one. My goal is to spread love and light, along with sharing my family's journey to help and inspire others. We’re not perfect, but we work hard to blend perfectly. Please follow our journey and others through AM Blended Families.
