  • 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 5 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

{Here we are – hard to believe I’ve been doing this for six years! I got my start doing this six years ago 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 last six years, this compilation of pictures has become one of my most cherished possessions.}

I can’t say how thankful I am that we’ve arrived at an age where bribing you for cooperating in pictures works! Hallelujah! Makes this mama so very happy to have pictures that show your genuine smile instead of you running away from the camera! Wearing pj’s for the Valentine’s pictures was your idea – pretty cute if you ask me!

Day 4 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

This is a new thing for us this year. Last May by happenstance we discovered you have asthma. It has been quite an interesting time figuring out how to keep you healthy in light of this new health challenge. I’m glad for the time being we’ve been able to figure out a plan that seems to be working. Lately you’ve been learning how to do your morning and nighttime routine by yourself, another step toward being a big, independent kid! When I asked you what you thought about having to do all of it, you got a BIG smile on your face (color me surprised) and said “good!” because it helps you feel better. Me too, kid.

Day 3 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

Together you two will conquer the world. At least mine, if not the big wide one. You two sure do love each other; and you show it the same way my siblings and I use to! Hugs, kisses and torment! Hard to believe it has started already! Even so, I love watching you two together!

Day 2 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

I love this smile that you take with you to school and return home with at the end of pretty much each day. I was a little nervous about your starting school last fall, but you seem to really love your class, teacher and all the new friends you’ve made there.

Day 1 {LANDON in FEBRUARY}

Well, here we are again – day 1 of this year’s month of pictures! Hard to believe that this month you will turn six years old! You are teetering on the edge of being so grown up; most days, you are independent, strong, brave, smart and very much a “big boy”. There are moments, moments my mama heart soaks up, that you reach back for my hand, curl up in my lap, and I see fleeting glimpses of my sweet baby boy.
