Hey y’all, I’m Mandy! I am portrait photographer based in Orange Beach, Alabama. I grew up in Alabama and have the accent to prove it! I’m a lucky girl that lives at the beach with my handsome husband and wild kids doing a job that I love. I’m a bit of a perfectionist trying to learn to let go a little bit and just enjoy this crazy ride of life!
So why am I a photographer? Because my memory is terrible. Seriously, I can’t remember what I ate for breakfast this morning. I have to set alarms on my phone for everything. And I don’t want my memories to fade away. I always think, “oh, I’ll never forget…….” and then I do. But you hand me a picture, and those memories come flooding back. And I want to do that for your family.
I like to think I am a fun girl, and I want my time with you to be fun! Family sessions don’t have to be stressful. Just come and play – in the most beautiful light possible – and I will capture those memories for you. I want my clients to not only see pretty pictures – and I do promise we will get those – but genuine memories.
I have been fortunate enough to have my work featured on many nationally recognized websites and blogs like Little Bellows (and on their Friday favorites here, here, and here), Seniorologie, Clickin Moms’ Day in the Life Series, Clickin Moms’ My Photography Journey Series, and the Inspired, a Very Special Project over at My 4 Hens Photography.
Take a look around. If you decide I am the photographer for you, I would love to capture some of your family’s memories – even the less than perfect ones! I can’t wait to meet you!
