  • 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.

Jordan & Brycen {MARRIED}

This was a very special wedding for me – I’ve known Brycen for many years, was his babysitter once upon a time and it was nothing short of an honor to be on hand to capture such a special day for him and his gorgeous bride Jordan! Their venue was stunning (The Barn on Jackson), and the day was just a laid back day spent with their favorite people – what could be better than that! There were super adorable details, and some even better moments!

Brycen’s reaction to seeing Jordan for the first time on their wedding day was literally priceless!

I’ve had a lot of fun with these two, here we were joking about Brycen’s favorite word from their engagement session…

While doing bridal party portraits I always do a formal picture of the groom with each of his guys plus a fun picture, and for his fun picture Karl decided that a kiss was in order!!

Jordan & Brycen, I wish you two many years of laughter, tears, loving and growing together!!

Day 21 {Delaney’s second Photo-a-Day}

{It has started friends: Delaney’s second Photo-a-Day month! This sassy thing isn’t even two and she’s already giving us a run for our money – I’m sure you’ll see that represented in the pictures to follow!! I started this with Landon and now it is Delaney’s turn! I borrowed this idea from Kerianne Brown, a fantastic photographer.}

Never in my dreams did I think you’d make such a cute Shirley Temple! It was the perfect theme for your and Irie’s party, and I just can’t get over how adorable you girls looked in your dresses with your hair all in curls! Speaking of curls, I worked HARD for yours but they were so worth it! You girls LOVED your party, it’s so hard to believe that two years are gone in the blink of an eye!

You two crack me up and scare the pants off me!! Drammie gave you girls some markers and paper while we were decorating for your party, and within 5 minutes you were “tattooing” each other!! I think this is just a small glimpse into the trouble that you two are going to get into in just a few years!

Oh, the grocery cart shot. This started with your brother and has continued to be one of my favorite ways to mark your growth from year to year. Right now, you love the grocery store. Between the cookie you get and the joy of tossing my less-fragile groceries into the cart  (over your shoulder, exactly like your brother use to), its not a bad way to spend an hour with mama!

I love your imagination. I decided to clean out the car tonight and you kept yourself occupied turning the knobs, pushing buttons, attempting to start the car with my studio keys and trying to sneak peeks of the birthday presents I was carrying in from the car. I did have quite the ruckus on my hands the next morning (wipers, radio, air conditioner on) – luckily I did remember to turn off the hazards before we went in for the night!
