Sneak Peek: The Thompson Family {PORTRAITS OF LOVE}

Another day, another beautiful, fun family to photograph. Denise, you have two very cute, very funny kids. (It was ALMOST like uncle Andrew rubbed off a little, especially on Mr. Hayden. Too funny, that kid is!) These portrait of love sessions are so much fun, and again, such an honor to do. But there is…

Sneak Peek: Liebenstein Family {PORTRAITS OF LOVE}

Each of these sessions is an honor to do. Jamie and Jacob came today to get their picture taken to send to their soldier, who is currently fighting for our country in Afghanistan. On a day that celebrates all that our unsung military heroes do for our country, I had the pleasure of photographing a…

    Jamie, Your strong spirit and love for your son are so evident in these beautiful pictures. We continue to admire your willingness to raise your child while your husband honors the United States of America with his service.
    We are so very proud of you as a mom and wife. We hope you win the free portrait because of what you give to America. You give your husband the perfect gift of total support so that he can serve our Country.
    Thank You, Love

    Oh, how your special Soldier must miss you! He will be thrilled with these awesome pictures… A beautiful Mom and Wife! A handsome little boy! God bless and keep you all. Special prayers are being whispered with deep gratitude for your Soldier and your family. Love from a two Soldier Family

    Hang in there. Don’t know if your husband is part of a large group of Liebensteins from the midwest whose ancestors included a Phillip and Conrad, among others. If so, we might be third or fourth cousins. Here’s praying everyone returns safely to Fort Lewis if that is where you’re stationed. If I can still judge photo feelings after a slight break from taking photos for a couple of newspapers for more than a decade, I am confident Ms. Mandie captured your little fellow’s love of his Daddy rather well. Your soldier will undoubtedly be proud to get these. – Brian Liebenstein of Tigard, OR

Sneak Peek: Waterfield Family {PORTRAITS OF LOVE}

I am so excited to present the first of (hopefully) many Portraits of Love session. What a fantastic family the Waterfields are! Faith is so bubbly and was in love with collecting leaves, Hudson is a handful (but I consider that to be a good thing in a little boy), and Rose is obviously the rock of…

    I love these pictures. Both Rose and the kids looked relaxed and that is important when looking for a photographer; you want someone who does all the work and helps make the kids comfortable and responsive. Great job. They are beautiful photos.

    You all made me cry! I love my family and my friends so much! You are the best that anyone could ask for and you are why I am who I am as a mother and a friend and a wife to my husband while he is away! This was the greatest gift ever! Thank you Mandi for doing this for us and for showing Keith that even though he isn’t here we still love him and miss him and want him to see that things are still turning and are ok. You did a great great job!
