After your session is confirmed, your portrait experience officially begins! You will be invited to the exclusive online Portrait Lounge, where you will find resources – from outfit inspiration to session tips – so you can make the most of your experience!
Your session will be centered all around you and your loved ones. With all of the planning and preparing we will do before your session, you will start your session with confidence and end it with fun!
Once I have collected your finished photos, I will place them inside my gallery portal and send you a direct link to your own photo gallery. From this portal, you can purchase and download your keepsake photos.
Photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. Your linen 6x9 album with a variety of images from you photo session will be designed by me and I will get it you within 4-6 weeks.
If you live in the twin cities and are looking for unique and beautiful landscapes to capture, a rural setting could be just what you need. Rural areas are typically characterized by open spaces, rolling hills, and serene natural surroundings that offer plenty of opportunities for capturing stunning images.
Grief has a way of permeating every aspect of our lives, leaving us searching for solace and healing. For me, that journey led me back to photography, a passion I had once set aside.
You don’t want to waste time making constant outfit changes during your photo shoot. Most photographers will limit the number of outfits you can change into. Location can also restrict what you’d be able to change into as well, but layering items of clothes can help resolve this problem.

Mandie was amazing to work with, I cannot thank her enough for the beautiful pictures. We will be working on it her again! The first 48 session is something everyone should plan on. Mandie was very cooperative throughout the planning process of when the baby was due and made sure to capture moments that will forever be cherished. Again thank you!

From the very beginning Mandie was super helpful. When I had questions about clothing choices she replied quickly, and on the day of our shoot she was great with our kids. She got our proofs back to us so fast and they are all so good that I can't figure out what ones are my favorites!

Mandie is just fantastic! She did our pregnancy and newborn photoshoots. The pictures are so beautiful, they truly exceeded our expectations! She was also really patient and extemelly knowledgeable about newborn photography. I'd highly recommend her and can't wait to have another family photoshoot with her!
