My Story

Raised in Michigan, I’m a midwestern girl at heart. Fueled by sunshine and chocolate chip cookies, I live in Northern CA and travel all over capturing gorgeous stories of couples and families in love. When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me gardening or outdoors with my daughters and our pup named Ocho. My camera is an extension of my heart, and I use it to narrate love stories. I’m the girl who will greet you with a warm smile, bustle your gown, remind you to take deep breaths, fetch you champagne, and meet you on the dance floor!

I'm currently on a quest to discover the world's best love stories and chocolate chip cookies. Ten years ago, I began pursuing my dream of becoming a photographer. Years of elementary teaching experience have taught me how to build confidence among young people and trust among adults. I’ve used these skills in my business to provide hundreds of people the opportunity to share their story through artistic images. After a session, my heart sings as I watch others gain more confidence and a sense of appreciation for their own beautiful story. You have a story too. And you belong in the photographs that allow you to share it.

Mindy is a wonderful photographer with a great eye for the perfect picture. My husband and I used her for an engagement photo shoot, and she instantly put us at ease. She had great ideas for backdrops and poses that we wouldn’t have thought of on our own. Her editing and choosing of the prints was spot on — the quality was impeccable. If you’re looking for someone who is talented, passionate, and whose quality of work surpasses any other, look no further than Mindy!
