nice to meet you

I'm Mindi! I am a photographer, photo retoucher, videographer, and video editor who specializes in creative marketing, social media content, and e-commerce imagery. 

When I'm not making photos or videos, I am: Going on adventures with my husband, cooking and baking, checking out new cute restaurants, sketching up design ideas for my Etsy shop, exploring thrift stores, looking at the internet, watching many crime shows, decorating our home, and being a birdy mama.

Be sure to check out my BLOG and shop my ETSY!

I have 8 years of full time experience in the field, and about 5 years of freelance before that. I am skilled in lighting, capturing, and styling products on-figure and tabletop, in the studio and on location for both photo and video. This includes photo retouching and manipulation, and video editing with some motion graphics. 

I'm well versed in art direction and creative ideation, model coaching and directing, maintenance and inventory of photo studios, scheduling and coordinating talent, keeping multiple photo sets cohesive and consistent, file organization and archiving, monitor calibration, creating fresh lighting standards, moving and assembling photo studios, and educating myself on current industry trends.

In addition to marketing, social media, and e-commerce work I have about 10 years of wedding experience, with both cinematic videography and photography in lead, solo, and second positions.
