Hello, I'm Mindi!
I am a photographer, photo retoucher, videographer, and video editor. I specialize in creative marketing, social media content, and e-commerce imagery.
When I'm not making photos and videos, I am:
Going on adventures with my husband, cooking and baking, checking out new restaurants, doing arts and crafts, exploring thrift stores, looking at the internet, watching crime shows when I have a minute, always decorating our home, and being Mama to two of my favorite people in the world, Hank and Goldie.

I can offer expertise from 16 years in the field. Over the years I’ve been an asset in several studios as photographer, videographer, and retoucher, editor. I am fluent in lighting, capturing, and styling products on-figure, form, and tabletop in the studio and on location for both photo and video. Along with that experience, I deliver advanced photo retouching and manipulation, stop motion animation, and video editing with a little motion graphics.
Additionally, I can provide art direction and creative ideation, model coaching and directing on set, hair and makeup direction, scheduling and coordinating talent. Styling for on figure, form, and lay down. Making photo selects and crops that follow standards and showcase products. Maintenance and inventory of photo studios, moving and assembling photo studios, matching back multiple photo sets, monitor calibration, file organization and archiving on servers. Creating lighting standards and style guides, lead engaging photo reviews, and staying current in multi-industry trends.
For good measure, I have 10 years of wedding experience with both photography and videography in lead, solo, and second positions, so my patience and decision making during chaos is top notch. I have allowed myself to retire from the wedding industry to focus on my primary career and free up weekends for my family but I still feel sharp in the particular skills needed to succeed in that field and will make return visits for the right client.
