Full service fashion and portrait photography. Studio and on location shoots.
So what's my why? Why photography? To be honest it's hard to put it all into words exactly... but I do know this... Our lives are a storybook of moments. Sometimes we turn the page and begin a new chapter, or say farewell to the end of an old. Sometimes we know what to expect at the turn of a page, and more often than not we have no idea what lies on the other side. Our lives are a series of moments in time woven into a beautiful and extraordinary tale. Some moments are good, some bad, some we wish we could forget, and some we want to remember forever. But they are ours. Each precious one of them special in their own right... because in the end they make us who we are. AND THAT IS INCREDIBLE! FOR ME PHOTOGRAPHY IS A WAY TO DOCUMENT YOUR STORY. So that you, and anyone you wish to share it with, will always and forever have a glimpse into your best moments, your greatest joys, and most cherished chapters.
My camera is my tool. And my hope is to use it to give meaning, purpose, and reason to everything I see through it. I want to create an experience for you that captures not only the best photograph you've ever seen of yourself, but also leaves you with unforgettable memories. Remember your special yesterdays for all your beautiful tomorrows.
We had such a wonderful experience shooting our family's holiday photos today! I'm so excited to see them. She was extremely professional and so so sweet. Our 9 month old son adored her and she was great with him! Her studio is so cozy and welcoming. We were totally comfortable and at ease during our session. Would recommend 100 times over! More...
Mandi is wonderful and so great to work with! She is really flexible and open to suggestions (we did sunrise photos at 6 am and she was super excited about it! ). I would definitely recommend A Moment's Focus Photography! The images Mandi captures are fantastic! More...
She beautifully captured the love and magic of my husband and my special day and we are so happy to have such wonderful photographs to share with our family
I've had the pleasure to work with Mandi along with having her do my son and daughters photos! She was so fun and patient with my son who is very active! She made my daughters maternity shoot so special and we now have great memories to keep forever! More...

I had the privilege of working with Mandi in many bridal sessions over this summer. I love all the photos that she took, and not only is Mandi a great photographer- She is the sweetest person you will ever work with. I highly recommend Mandi for anyone who is looking for a professional photographer for any event, you won't be disappointed.

I highly recommend Mandi to anyone who is looking for a photographer. I felt very prepared for my engagement shoot thanks to her "How To Prepare" e-mail , and she gets to your questions and requests quickly! All of her contracts are detailed and professional. My fiance and I felt comfortable and relaxed during our engagement session and that was important to us. We are so excited to work with her at our wedding this summer! More...
I have worked with Mandi several times both as a subject and as a professional peer. Not only is she incredibly talented in capturing beautiful images, but you can see in her face as she is doing so that this is truly her passion and her calling. If you haven't booked her yet, you are missing out on a wonderful experience! More...
We had so much fun meeting Mandi and she was so great with us and our daughter! I am so impressed with the little things like contracts and branding and all the little things she does to be professional. I highly recommend her...and Mitchell as well! :) More...
Mandi went above and beyond throughout the whole process from giving ideas for wedding photography timelines to researching and calling locations for engagement photos to ensure we got the best place at the best time! She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement photo session which allowed us to capture real moments of love and laughter. The photos turned out AMAZING and she got them to us so quickly! We cannot thank her enough and we cannot wait to work with her again at our wedding! More...
Mandi was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has an eye like no other. She did our newborn shoot and now our 6 month baby/family photos and I was so impressed how she captured the love. I was definitely not feeling my prettiest right after child birth yet, Mandi captured the new baby glow (despite being beyond sleep deprived). She set reasonable expectations (our baby was older and wasn't in the sleepy baby mode); and has so much patience - she kept trying until she got perfect shots. Overall, a photographer should almost become a friend. They capture some of your lives most precious life moments - I feel like Mandi has become part of the fam with her sweet nature and patience and her positive attitude. I would highly recommend her to anyone! More...

I gifted my mom a mother-daughter photo session with Mandi and it was absolutely amazing! The prices were great for all the amazing stuff we received with our session and the makeup and hair was absolutely stunning (thank you, Katie! ). Mandi is such a wonderful photographer to work with and makes sure you get the exact shots and looks that you want. The session went by so quick because we were having so much fun and our sneak peek of the photos are already absolutely beautiful. I love Mandi's work, but I also love shooting with her! More...
I received a mother-daughter photo session with Mandi as a Christmas gift from my daughter. From start to finish, it was an amazing experience! I was a little nervous going in because I was feeling a bit self-conscious about having photos done. However, those fears quickly went away as soon as Mandi started working her magic (not to mention, the transformation of hair and makeup by the talented Katie)! Mandi put me at absolute ease. She has an amazing eye and makes sure you are comfortable with everything. She has such creativity and great ideas, but was also completely welcoming of any particular things we wanted to make sure to incorporate in our shoot. It was such a fun day and I can tell from the sneak peek photos that Mandi captured some beautiful images. Thank you Mandi, for your artistry, professionalism and kind heart. You made this gift one I will always cherish! More...
I have had Mandi photograph my family twice now. After my first session, I was impressed enough to book her again. After my second, I will probably never ever look for any other photographer. My baby was 9 months the first time around and very friendly so that session was super fun and the photos turned out amazing. The second session however was fairly eventful. My baby now 1, refused to smile and kept giving blank stares. She would not cooperate. Mandi was super patient, gave great direction as to how to get baby comfortable and lo and behold! The photographs are amazing again. I really was dreading finally looking at the photos. But I cannot believe how nice they are! Mandi is a miracle worker. She will be my go-to for all my photography needs. More...
Mandi is so kind, caring, brilliant and is spectacular with the beautiful details. Her passion for photography and capturing the best in everyone is evident in all she does! I highly recommend her!
