NAVIGATE

Hi, I'm Mandy! I'm happiest at home with a cup of coffee (heavy on the cream & sugar), watching some HGTV (Fixer Upper anyone?!) & flipping through Instagram, with my beagle, Jack, snuggled on my feet. I love exploring new places, trying new foods, craft beer, coffee dates, Michigan autumns, and, of course, PHOTOGRAPHY! Thank you so much for stopping by my page. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you all, and I appreciate each and every one of you!

Choosing a photographer can be tough. My photography style has been described as modern, rich, vibrant, colorful and yet authentic and timeless. My goal is to tell your unique story and capture your moments and memories as they are, but give them a little pop. It's important to find someone you're comfortable with so your personality can shine through your portraits. I want to not only create beautiful and timeless images you will cherish for years to come, but to also have a great time!

hello there!

I am rustic charm and family heirlooms, not urban vibes and wild trends...  I believe that the “small” things in life are really the big things, and that the fleeting kinds of moments are the ones that should always be cherished. I believe a cup of coffee with a great friend can solve any problem, that laughter is the greatest medicine, and I especially believe in the power of love to conquer all.

I believe that life’s greatest adventures should never be tackled alone. And I believe in tradition - in both celebrating old ones and creating new. Because more than anything, I believe that timeless always trumps trendy and that classic will never go out of style. 

MY FAVORITE THINGS

I adore all things autumn, and one of my favorite parts of the fall is that sunflowers are in season! my dream someday is to have a big field of them right in my back yard.

Sunflowers

I'm becoming a bit of a lorelai gilmore when it comes to coffee ...

All day. Every day.

great coffee

I love going to concerts with my sister. In the last three years we have seen Dierks Bentley, Chris young, blake shelton & Thomas Rhett! Any excuse to throw on my cowboy boots is alright by me!

Country Music

Don't get me wrong, I love diamonds, but i love how classy I feel when i throw on my pearls!
