Hi, I'm Mandy. Let me tell you a little bit about myself...

 

I'm an iPhone-loving, loud-talking, always-laughing photographer with unruly curly hair.  I like giving hugs and high-fives. I sing very loudly in the car to my favourite songs (and will not converse with anyone else in the car while doing so) and I unfailingly laugh at my own jokes and sarcasm.

I love warm blankets over my legs (even in the summer) and deeply miss my old dog lying at my feet.  I read more books at one time than is probably advisable and spend the odd afternoon poking around historic sites and museums, giddy with historical geekiness.

I love the smell of the earth in a damp forest and waking up to fat drops of dew on the grass.  Every year I wish that lilac season was just a little longer and that September would never end, with its perfect weather and golden sunsets.

When I'm not being a photographer, you will most likely find me spending time with my girls.  I live for traipsing through the woods with my eleven-year old in the light of dusk and curling up with my fourteen-year-old for a heart-to-heart. 

Our family cottage in Tobermory is my sanctuary, the place I always feel at peace.  I spend as much time in Georgian Bay as the frigid water temperatures allow, with my encased phone plunged beneath the waves trying to capture the magic of the underwater world.  Or I am playing board games very competitively but letting someone else keep score to avoid doing math.

I'm just an average human doing her very best to work hard, love my family + friends, to deliver for my super awesome clients and to embrace the beauty of life each and every day.
