Mindy is an amazing artist. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed for something that can be so awkward. We have gotten family pictures twice with her now, and I can't tell you how much they mean to me. She captures those moments, the love, the feelings, the REAL smiles and laughs. I look through my pictures and feel the emotions I felt in that time in our life. She has the ability to move you quickly and painlessly to get the perfect shots before one of the kids (or adults) have a total meltdown. And if, and when, the kids do melt down, she captures the emotion in all it's glory! I can't recommend her enough! If you are looking for someone more than just a photographer, if you want an artist who can capture memories and emotions and love, then this is your girl! You won't be disappointed!
