Hey friend!

i'm Mandy.

I launched Mandy Liz Photography with a camera, and a Craigslist ad. From simple beginnings, I booked my first family session, and the rest is history. Over the years I’ve had the joy of working with engaged couples, growing families, entrepreneurs, and some very sweet four legged clients.

You should know that travel is in my blood. I was raised abroad, possess an Argentine and American passport, and have visited over thirty countries. Even when I married my highschool sweetheart, we eloped in Paris with just a handful of loved ones present to cheer us on. My idea of a perfect Saturday night includes Netflix, sweat pants and my two rescue dogs, Nala and Obelix. Also, I’m a bit of an introvert, but I’ve found it to be an asset as a photographer. To be in the room without disturbing the intimacy allows me to catch the moments that others might miss.


especially our 2 rescue dogs, Nala and Obelix!

You can easily spot 20 Eiffel Towers around our home.

Fun fact!
Did you know hippos turn pink in the sun?



I spent the majority of my life in this city and it holds a very special place in my heart!

Buenos Aires


I love introverting with a good book, a comfy couch, and the dogs!

cozy days at home


Some would say I am obsessed with mermaids... it all started with Ariel!



My sweet Nala is my best adventure buddy! We love hiking and exploring together!

Outdoor Adventures


I don't have a green thumb, but my kill-proof plants allow me to be a plant lady!

I like to joke that I am a macaron connoisseur, but I am really not picky and love them all!



I love capturing fun moments with my Instax Mini! I use the instant prints as decoration around my office and home!



My Top Ten

things I'm crazy about

I'm on a mission to empower and encourage women through photography in their current season of life, whether that is business & entrepreneurship, marriage, or motherhood. Let’s celebrate the moments both big and small. The joy of a bride when she sees her groom. Your new baby breathing softly into your neck as they soundly sleep. The confidence of a woman making her dreams a reality. I partner with you to tell your story. 

your wedding photos should be an encouragement to carry you through the next fifty years. A tangible expression of the devotion and love you have for one another.

I Believe...

your branding images should be a reflection of your passions and moxie. It’s not just another headshot. I want the world to see you the way I do; confident, radiant and full of fire.

I Believe...

your family’s giggles, snuggles, and inside jokes are just as sacred as the milestones. We’ll photograph all of it so you can remember not just the day, but the season of life.
