Life happens fast. Make time stand still and capture their first week, first year, the next 10 years, or the big milestones in between like a Sweet 16 or Prom!
I offer lifestyle Family and portrait sessions in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas. 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.
Some of my favorite types of sessions include Maternity, Newborn, in-home Family sessions, senior sessions, and parties!
You believe your family's giggles, snuggles, and inside jokes are just as sacred as the milestones.
You want to fill up your walls with memories of not just one day, but a season of life!
You are drawn to bright and clean images with a candid and joyful style.
Maternity and Newborn sessions are the perfect way to celebrate a new season of motherhood. I typically recommend that my clients schedule their maternity sessions when they are around 7 months pregnant, and their newborn sessions within 10 days of coming home from the hospital.
The last year of high school is such a big deal for kids, and a senior session is the perfect way to celebrate them and everything that makes them unique! The best thing about a senior session is that it is completely different for each senior I photograph! We will incorporate their style and things that they are passionate about, and we can choose a location that is significant to them!
I love capturing each belly laugh, every authentic smile, and all the fleeting moments that you cherish. I believe your family’s giggles, snuggles, and inside jokes are just as sacred as the milestones, and we can photograph all of it so you can remember not just the day, but the season of life. Family sessions are a great way to update the prints on your walls and to pass down a family treasure!
I am all about confetti, streamers, and cake! Whether you are planning a 1 year cake smash, a Sweet 16, a Baby Shower, or a 50th Birthday Party, I would love to help you capture your special celebration with timeless pictures.
"Our extended family recently visited Nashville and decided to do a family photo session. With only a week's notice, Mandy was extremely accommodating, friendly, and helpful in planning a session in a city we were not familiar with. On the day of our session it was pouring rain, but again Mandy didn't panic and helped us find a location that would keep us dry. Our family was a group of 10 including two toddlers and Mandy was amazing with keeping everything flowing. We will cherish these for years to come and cannot thank Mandy enough for her sweet demeanor, for being so flexible and easy to work with, and for her sheer talent! I would consider going back to Nashville just to get in front of Mandy's camera again!" — Jenna

"My fiancé and I hired Mandy for a lifestyle session on the day we moved in together. We’d been waiting 8 years for the day to come and wanted to celebrate! The final results were GORGEOUS! I wanted pictures that were crisp and clean, but without the cheesy look of typical posed photos. She did an amazing job and now we have beautiful pictures we’re going to keep forever." — Emily

"Mandy did a newborn photo shoot for us in our home. It was very easy having her around, even with a 2-week-old preemie. She let our son dictate how the shoot went and really captured our life with him at this stage. The photos she took were beautiful (great variety too) and very easy to access. I also appreciated the specific advice she gave us on how to dress, especially for me (post-partum). I would definitely use her again and can't recommend her highly enough." — Kate

"Can I just say, you are by far my favorite photographer I have ever worked with. You’re easy-going demeanor and clear instructions made our little shoot so easy. You took what I had in my head, and brought it to life. Thank you for capturing this little moment in time so perfectly. " — Danielle

"Mandy has been doing our family photos for the past 2 years. Our first shoot with her was my son's newborn photos and she was AMAZING with a fussy baby and a frazzled new mom. She is patient with my little one and always gets amazing shots! We're so happy we chose her as our photographer!" — Christy

"Mandy was so patient and kind during our session with her!! She was very flexible scheduling our session even when I was back and forth because of some rainy weather. She was somehow able to capture great photos of my 1 year old who insisted on pointing, chewing on her hands, and trying to eat dirt throughout our time with Mandy. I was so happy with our turnout. We will definitely use Mandy again!" — Katie

"Mandy was a complete sweetheart! She captured our 3 year wedding anniversary perfectly! She was super creative when it came to making us do things to make both my husband & I laugh! (Like, “with your ear draw something on her cheek”-I completely lost it & was cracking up within seconds) I’m looking forward to having Mandy capture future wedding anniversaries & special milestones in our lives." — Karina
