I'M SO GLAD YOUR HERE

HEY, I'M MANDI

I'm a natural light portrait photographer in Katy, TX who has an appreciation for all the little details that bring so much feeling. After being pushed for what seems like forever to turn my hobby into a business, I finally took the leap earlier this year and I can honestly say I feel like I finally found my calling. 


Through photographing my own family and friends, I realized early on that I wanted to provide a stress-free experience that captures authentic imagery that families will look back on fondly for years to come. I love creating images that have the power to transport you back to this specific season of life by documenting your little loves just the way they are. As a mom myself, these are the images I treasure the most. The fact that I can gift these types of memories to other families brings me utmost joy!


So here's a little about me!
- I married my college sweetheart, Jordan, 7 years ago and it was the BEST decision I ever made. We have two little ladies Audrey (3) and Olivia (1), and a golden retriever who completes our family circus.
- I could eat breakfast food any time of the day, run on coffee and enjoy a good gin cocktail when out with friends and the hubs.
- Decluttering gives me great satisfaction. 
- College Football > NFL
- I grew up in a small West Texas town (pop. 1,200) that no one can ever seem to pronounce correctly.
- I prefer quality over quantity. 
- I enjoy researching new destinations and typically have a few trips planned at any given time (classic enneagram 7 here). This way, I’m ready whenever Jordan gives the green light to explore somewhere new.
- My favorite accessory: hands down statement earrings!
- I love traveling. Hate unpacking. My suitcase pretty much stays packed and I live out of it until my next trip.

REVIEWS

Skye - lynn

"Her photography was amazing. Seriously – I’m convinced that she could’ve just given us the shots straight off the camera. She talked us through each pose and snapped ANY and EVERYTHING! Emmett wasn’t in the greatest mood and I was so worried about her smiling at first, but Mandi captured all of her faces and I’m so thankful she did because THAT is exactly how Emmett is right now. Smiling photos are great, but it’s so fun looking back at her sassy, tongue-out, straight-faced expressions too!"

"Do yourself a favor, and book Mandi! She is professional, patient, easy going, and she makes the whole process stress-free from beginning to end. She goes above and beyond, offering clever styling tips and getting to know her client's likes and dislikes before the shoot. If you have a good angle, Mandi will find it and deliver you beautiful photos to enjoy forever."

"Dax and I had the honor of having Mandi take our spring bluebonnets!!! This was the most comfortable “no pressure” photo session we have ever had. We knew exactly what to wear (thanks to the super informative do’s & don’t sheet that Mandi typed up) and didn’t have to stress about poses! Mandi captured our natural interactions and personalities with each other. So special! She was so great with Dax too! She knew how to communicate with him to keep his good side showing. Toddlers can be unpredictable! I’ve never loved ALL photos from a session until this one! Can’t wait for another season to have you capture more moments!"

"I cannot say enough about our maternity session with Mandi! She made the session so fun and relaxing. She is great at giving direction to ensure the perfect photos. From the moment you book your session to the time you get your gallery link, you can see Mandi is very passionate about her work and capturing the perfect images for her clients."

jennifer

"Mandi takes the time necessary to capture those natural tender moments! She isn’t rushed or bothered by the dynamics of children. She was warm and patient during our entire session and gave just the right amount of direction. My daughter opened right up and was even given a treat at the end. My treat was the amazing gallery she carefully edited and delivered beautifully! I am so grateful for the location she selected and the moments she captured that I will cherish forever!"

whitney

"Mandi is amazing! Not only was the end result of our photography session gorgeous but the process was wonderful! Family pictures can be stressful, especially with very small children and our session was very relaxed and easy. Highly recommend!"
