Let me just start off by being super honest with you by saying that one, I’m so incredibly excited, and two, that I am so humbled and honored by the fact that you might allow me to do the deeply important work of telling your story.
If you are at this point, my hope is that you have seen some of what I do on Instagram or Facebook, or looked through my website, and that you are so deeply in love with the way that I photograph lives that you want your story told by me. If all of that is true, I am so over-the-moon excited to work with you.
Photographs have this magical ability to freeze time. They bear witness to everything happening in that moment. This simple visual documentation allows us to revisit those moments that we have deemed valuable and to share the stories that they hold with people who weren’t there.
These truths about photographs is what makes the art more than a monetary investment, but more importantly an investment in the history of your family. Honestly, photographs will outlive us. They will continue to bear witness to us and our lives long after we have left this earth. This is why I choose to invest in the people that invite me into their lives, because I work in the business of preserving legacies, and that’s priceless.

Newborn Portrait Session - $275
It is best to photograph a newborn within the first 10 days of life. Newborn sessions can often take upwards of 2 hours due to feedings, changes, and temperament. I require a space in your home near a large light source (sliding glass doors, windows) that receives ample amounts of natural light. I like to begin the session early in the morning, typically around 8 or 9 am.
Major Milestones Package - $500
More bang for your buck! This package captures a year in the life of your child. Package includes 3 separate sessions. The specific timing of each session is completely up to you, though I often default to my favorite milestones beginning with the newborn session, followed by the 6-month milestone and ending at, on or around their 1st birthday. Balance due on or before 1st session.
Lifestyle Session - $140/hour (2-hour minimum)
My personal favorite! This is a candid, documentary-type session, great for documenting nearly anything – a few hours of your morning routine, an outing with your family, the way your family makes dinner at night, or even events with extended family (i.e. birthday party, retirement party, etc).
Now, you are probably thinking something along the lines of, “if you don’t pose us, how are we going to know what to do??” Right now, the idea may seem daunting, but trust me when I tell you that it’s easier. This allows us to work together to not only document your life as honestly as possible, but to also structure your session in such a way that you just have to live your life (which is what we are documenting) and I will just be a silent observer, telling your story. I often say in a session that “you are just going to live, and I’m going to be your personal paparazzi for a few hours!”
Weddings are each so different and so many factors go into the big day, that offering a blanket price just doesn’t work. If you’re interested in wedding coverage, please contact me and I would love to go over the details of your day and create a custom quote.

Mandi recently came to our home to do a photo shoot of our family & friends celebrating not only the marriage of our youngest son, but the blessing of their first child, a son coming in September. Mandi is so easy to work with. With her ever present smile and quiet demeanor, she moved among us all capturing some great shots, creating wonderful memories for us to treasure through the years. Thank you Mandi! More...

Mandi’s talent is incomparable!! Our newborn pictures were perfection and I could not have imagined sweeter moments than the ones Mandi captured of our family. The comfort level she brought into our home during our session made it so easy for our family to just be ourselves and for Mandi to be able to capture our personalities. I cannot wait until our next session with Mandi! More...

I saw Mandi's work and knew I wanted her for my daughter's senior pictures. Everything went better than we could have hoped.

Mandi is a wonderful photographer!!! You can tell she truly loves what she does. She was super sweet and patient with our two kiddos who don't love sitting still in front of a camera. She had our photos to us very quickly. Thanks Mandi!!! More...
We had such a great experience-- we felt totally comfortable and were absolutely thrilled with our pictures! I would definitely recommend Mudpie photography to anyone looking for quality pictures that really capture the essence of the moment!

I can't say enough amazing things about working with Mandi! Mandi is an extremely patient and detail oriented photographer!

We did our sons first Easter/spring pictures with Mandi and they came out perfect! My husband sold her and her husband their boat and told me about her photography. I immediately looked her up, and fell in love with the moments she captured. Mandi is amazing and very patience when it comes to taking pictures with kids. I can't wait to book for my sons first birthday session! Thank you again Mandi for the beautiful pictures!! More...
Mandi was phenomenal to work with and captured such precious moments. She shot my sons 1 year photos and they were nothing short of amazing. She has an impressive talent to encapsulate memories with her camera. It was an easy process to schedule a session and her turn around time on the proofs was quick. I highly recommend Mandi with Mudpie Photography! More...
My husband and I wanted something to remember the excitement and joy of our first trimester after 4 long years of thinking we may never be able to be parents or have a successful pregnancy.
Not only that, but we'd learned that we were expecting identical TWINS!!! (We didn't know this then, but two daughters!)
Mandi at Mudpie Photography booked us during one of her mini-sessions at a lovely ranch in Conroe, she took her time to get the right shots, even when that meant going a bit over our time slot. The ranch-hand (who was also a photographer) who assisted us and showed us around the place was so sweet and did everything she could to make the experience a great one, even letting us try to get some photos with the horses. The photos turned out to be just what we were going for - our family will cherish them forever. We look forward to working with Mudpie again in the future! More...
I was a little hesitant about doing a pregnancy photo shoot. I had never done one before with my other two babies but since this was my last baby I thought it might be nice to document. Mandi was amazing! So sweet and encouraging, and great with my two older kiddos who were less excited to be hanging out in old town Spring at 7:30 am. What we ended up with was amazing! The pictures look like us, very natural and relaxed, except in old town spring. They were natural and candid. You get the sense of our family and our personalities pop out. My entire family loved them all. We can't wait for her to photograph baby Owen. I am sure Mandi will capture his personality then as well. More...
Mandi is awesome! She shot the photos of our son when he was 9 days old and we were so happy that when his first birthday just came around there was no other photographer we would have contacted but her! We were absolutely thrilled with this shoot as well. Mandi is incredibly talented and took her time capturing any and every shot we could think of. Portraits, cake smash, and some lifestyle photos in the sink, and she is so great with our son it made it so easy and he was smiles the whole time! If you need a great photographer she is it! Mandi-thank you so much for our photos. You are beyond talented and an incredibly sweet person. We look forward to next time! More...
We absolutely loved Mandi! She was wonderful with our daughter. We got our pictures back so quickly & they are exactly what we wanted. She is by far the best photographer we have ever worked with. Thank you so much Mandi. Looking forward to working with you again very soon! -Luke and Anna Cunningham More...
