So what's my why? Why photography? To be honest, finding all the words to accurately express the depth of my love for photography is difficult. But I can say this:
I want to photograph you every year for the rest of your life... through all your successes, triumphs, and challenges. So that one day, you will look back on all that you have learned, overcome, and accomplished, and be proud of the legacy you will leave behind. Our lives are a storybook of moments. Sometimes we turn the page and begin a new chapter, or say farewell to the end of an old. Sometimes we know what to expect at the turn of a page, and more often than not we have no idea what lies on the other side. Our lives are a series of moments in time woven into a beautiful and extraordinary tale. Some chapters bring us joy, laughter, and love. While others leave us filled with defeat, regret, and sorrow. BUT these are our stories! Uniquely and beautiful ours and no one else's! They shape and mold us into who we are.
SO, I challenge you to join me for a photo session now! At whatever stage of life you're in. No more excuses. No more delays. Let's document your story. Because it's through our stories and our journey that we can inspire, educate, and share memories for generations to come. My camera is my tool. And my hope is to use it to give meaning, purpose, and reason to you and your story.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
"Highly recommend Mandi. She is so talented and wow us with her unique and artistic style every time. She is very accommodating and is great with kids. She has natural ability to make our daughter smile and laugh, even when she feels shy. We are looking forward to many more sessions with her!" - Azadeh
"Mandi is such an amazing photographer, I have worked with her twice so far and can't wait to shoot with her again! She's so patient, kind, and comfortable to be around. They way she directs her models is astounding. What I love most is that she has so many visions and a clear idea of the images she wants to create. Along with that, Mandi also has the perfect eye to make sure any picture she takes comes out beautiful. I adore her as a person and as a photographer as well. Definitely one of my most favorite photographers." -Manasvi
"I gifted my mom a mother-daughter photo session with Mandi and it was absolutely amazing! The prices were great for all the amazing stuff we received with our session and the makeup and hair was absolutely stunning (thank you, Katie!). Mandi is such a wonderful photographer to work with and makes sure you get the exact shots and looks that you want. The session went by so quick because we were having so much fun and our sneak peek of the photos are already absolutely beautiful. I love Mandi's work, but I also love shooting with her!" - CHLOE RAIN ROBERTS

In the last 6 months, we've worked with Mandi 3 times for maternity, new baby, and Christmas family pictures. Each time, we have been delighted the results.

Would recommend 100 times over!" -KATIE CHILDERS
The photos that Mandi captures are absolutely gorgeous! She has wonderful ideas and beautiful visions that guided the photo shoot yesterday. Mandi is professional, friendly, fun and easy to work with all at same time!
She's obviously passionate about what she does and it really shines through in her photos. I definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to get beautiful and natural looking portraits! Her rates are very reasonable as well. Would love to have my photos taken by her again! - LIZ TALVI
