Glimpses of Soul Photography bio picture
  • 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!

Fitness Headshots

Anna is a Minneapolis Pilates and fitness trainer and she came to me to get some headshots that represented her personality and her profession. She was smiley and happy and so easy to photograph and I loved her confidence. I can only imagine that she would be an excellent motivator with infectious energy.

    Jelly Andrews - I agree! She looks so bubbly in these photos. You could really see happiness and enjoyment in her eyes. Thanks a lot for sharing her photos.

Remember when I used to have a blog?

Oh yeah, I used to blog. That was back before MAY happened. May, which included a f(un)booth, a maternity session, 10 headshots, 500 some preschool photos and a birth (…and will include one more birth before the month is officially over). It’s that crazy Catch-22 – plenty of time to blog but no material or plenty of material and no time to blog.

Now, the shooting schedule is slowing down to a more normal pace and in between, I’m tied to the computer, editing away. So many cute faces to share in the coming weeks.

Summer sessions are also filling up rather quickly. Make sure to get in touch soon if you’d like to set one up!

April Snow Brings Headshots & Preschools

After a couple of headshot-heavy months, April has been something of a transition – still a lot of headshots but also kicking off the preschool season! Only one school this month, to ease me into the craziness of next month which will be almost entirely preschool-filled.

Here’s just one of the recent preschool cuties. He had the biggest blue eyes and the cutest lips.

Twin Cities Headshots

This lovely lady came in for the headshot mini-sessions and suggested that she wasn’t very photogenic. Ha! While I was editing her photos, I realized she reminded me a bit of Lynda Carter. She ended up really liking the results from our quick shoot and these are the images she selected.
