Hello and Welcome!
I'm Mandee - a mom, a wife, and a portrait photographer! My husband Nick is my rock, my tech support and my constant source of encouragement! Together we can easily demolish a box of Tagalongs in one sitting. Our son Elliott arrived five years ago, one minute before midnight and has been our whole world ever since! His smiles melt my heart and I adore being his mommy! Together these two boys bring so much happiness and love and laughter to my life everyday! 

I'm a Missouri girl down to my bones and have called St. Charles home for the last 9 years. I don't think I could ever live in another state- where else could I cheer for my favorite hockey team, the St. Louis Blues? 

I talk with my hands, even over the phone, and in writing you're hard pressed to get anything from me without multiple exclamation marks and one of these =)

I love Christmas as much as Buddy the Elf. I adore getting all the holiday cards from family and friends. It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

I know the lyrics to just about every kids cartoon on TV; it's embarrassing but does come in handy when trying to coax a smile from the little ones!!

My morning coffee comes in the form of Cherry Coke, ah so good! Please don't make me do anything adult before consuming it =)

The way to my heart is through silly romantic comedies and some good Mexican food (even better if the two are combined). Want to come over for a Gilmore Girls marathon and some quesadillas? Perfect! 

I'm available for family, newborn and senior portraits. Want to schedule a session? Visit my contact page and send me an email. I'd love to get to know you and capture your family's memories!
