  • WELCOME!

    My name is Mandy and I am a photographer in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I do birth, newborn, children and family photography as well as provide casual headshots for personal or professional use. I am primarily a natural light, on-location photographer but have a small St. Paul studio for newborn and headshot sessions.

    I also provide fun, casual school portraits for preschools and daycare centers. If your school is ready for something different, let's get in touch!

A few more from our mini-sessions last Fall. It was non-stop goofiness and giggles with this family of six!

What an amazing, amazing fall we had last year in the Twin Cities. Fall is always such a stressful time for photographers, trying to predict weeks in advance when the leaves will be perfect, searching out the best locations, trying to extend a season that sometimes seems to last only a week into as many weeks as possible in order to accommodate everyone’s wishes for beautiful fall portraits. But last year, it was gorgeous and it lasted for what seemed like ages! We got to capture some great family photos on this incredible backdrop of foliage for a family I met through my preschool work.

Of course, this probably means that this year, Fall will be two days long and all the leaves will either blow or be rained off the trees right away. Ah well.

Hey, remember when I used to blog? WAY BACK WHEN. So much radio silence lately! You’d think there wasn’t much going on but it’s been just the opposite – so much going on that there’s not enough time to share. My “To Be Blogged” folder has grown to over 60 sessions so now that the weather is affording me some lovely hibernation time, I think it’s time to get started.

Last summer, I got to photograph this awesome Indian family barbecue. They had gathered in Minneapolis from across the country to celebrate and welcome a brand new little guy and wanted to document that time. I love the type of documentary photography that just allows me to step back and capture what’s going on without any involvement and hopefully allows everyone else to (mostly) forget that I’m there. And when the event includes amazing, brightly colored dress like this one? Even better.
