Hi! I'm Mandalyn.
I was born and raised in the Midwest, and I'm currently making my home in Brooklyn with my boys. I'm a coffee-drinker, a kitchen dweller, an avid Instagrammer, and a big-hearted photographer. If you meet me, you'll find that I love greeting people with a hug (telltale Midwest heart) and finding beauty in unexpected places.
I photograph real life and real people.
I'm completely enamored with honest beauty – the kind found in real, everyday life. When I make photographs, I'm always seeking to showcase that kind of beauty, whether I'm shooting family photos, special events, portraits, or lifestyle content for a blog or brand. People weren't made to pose, they were made to live. I'm here to photograph real life as it unfolds.
