  • Have a look around

    ...here you will find my life. I have found that the wonderful thing about a blog is that it has become a place for me to document my own life, while I document your's. 

    My name is Mandi, and it is my passion to capture life's moments. From the cry of a newly born baby, to the happy tears of an adoption story, all the way to senior portraits that won't go out of style. Behind the camera, I prefer to capture the moments and not create them. I will offer suggestions and be available to you along the way so that you get the most out of your custom portrait experience. On the other side of the lens, I simply love life. I have an amazing family, wonderful friends, and can often be seen reading or crocheting (yep, I have a little old lady down deep in my soul!)

    Take a few minutes to check out my blogsite, catch up on the goings-on of a photographer from little ol' Centralia, and look at some pictures. If you are interested in a portrait session, all the necessary information can be found at the top or the bottom of the page.

    Real. Life. Captivating.

Day 21 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long (and hard to believe also that I’ve got an almost-seven year old)!!! I got my start doing this when I decided to take at least one picture a day of Landon, for the whole month of February in celebration of his birth month. I borrowed this idea from Kerianne Brown, a fantastic photographer. Over the years, this compilation of pictures has become one of my most cherished possessions.}

Always a riot with you two – not just funny, but literally trying to get a holding still picture of you two is much like herding cats (adorable cats, but still!) I always just hope and pray we get some keepers, maybe with a head swap or two…. imagine my delight when our wrangling, begging and bribing today rewarded us with THIS shot!

Day 20 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long (and hard to believe also that I’ve got an almost-seven year old)!!! I got my start doing this when I decided to take at least one picture a day of Landon, for the whole month of February in celebration of his birth month. I borrowed this idea from Kerianne Brown, a fantastic photographer. Over the years, this compilation of pictures has become one of my most cherished possessions.}

Because it is totally normal to wear a wrestling singlet (that you mostly refused to wear during your ACTUAL wrestling season) to sleep in…. just kickin’ back for some morning video games on a school holiday!

Day 19 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long (and hard to believe also that I’ve got an almost-seven year old)!!! I got my start doing this when I decided to take at least one picture a day of Landon, for the whole month of February in celebration of his birth month. I borrowed this idea from Kerianne Brown, a fantastic photographer. Over the years, this compilation of pictures has become one of my most cherished possessions.}

Experiments. You guys were all about doing experiments today, so when you asked first to order a pizza (so you could remove the pepperoni), then for a popsicle and later some chips…. I just chuckle and let your imaginations run wild!

Day 18 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long (and hard to believe also that I’ve got an almost-seven year old)!!! I got my start doing this when I decided to take at least one picture a day of Landon, for the whole month of February in celebration of his birth month. I borrowed this idea from Kerianne Brown, a fantastic photographer. Over the years, this compilation of pictures has become one of my most cherished possessions.}

Assigning chores will never be the same. I asked you to pick up any dirty clothes you had left around the house…. next thing I know, I hear you encouraging your sister to help you – and beyond that, you made it into a game for her! I didn’t know whether to be impressed or appalled, but I definitely chuckled!! Later when I was telling Grandma you got this sly little smile on your face, that turned into a broad grin when she gave you a high five!

Day 17 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long (and hard to believe also that I’ve got an almost-seven year old)!!!

You are in this phase with such a loud personality – lots of expressions, lots of emotion, and almost no chance of us not knowing how you feel at any given moment! This reminds me of another scowling face I captured years ago – this is what happens when I disrupt what you were doing to pause for a picture and try to give you some direction, oy!
