THE BOSS BABE BEHIND THE LENS
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY! LET ME TELL YOU A BIT ABOUT MYSELF......
I'M MANDY, A PROFESSIONAL LIVING IN RURAL SASKATCHEWAN. WHEN I'M NOT WORKING AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND FULL-TIME ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL IN SASKATOON, I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME IN MY HOMETOWN OF BIGGAR, SASKATCHEWAN VISITING FAMILY AND FRIENDS. MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY STARTED AT A VERY YOUNG AGE. GROWING UP YOU COULD ALWAYS CATCH ME LOOKING IN FAMILY PHOTO ALBUMS OR PICTURE MAGAZINES (VANITY FAIR BEING MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE!). A CREATIVE SOUL BY BIRTH, I'VE DABBLED IN MANY ASPECTS OF THE ARTISTIC FIELD INCLUDING A PERFORMING ARTIST CAREER IN NEW YORK CITY. YES, I'M SURE MANY OF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY I WOULD LEAVE THE BIG APPLE FOR THE SMALL BRIDGE CITY HERE IN THE PLAINS OF SASKATCHEWAN. THE ANSWER IS SIMPLY BECAUSE MY ROOTS ARE HERE AND IT'S HOME.
A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
↝ I have a nerdy side (as most of us do). I’m not a girly girl or tomboy, but definitely nerdy in my own way. I love fiction novels and I’m an absolute dweeb for things like Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings, Marvel/DC flicks & comics, and Star Wars. I love the occasional video game, just for fun (and I was never that good!), but give me the Sims or any Mario Bros.-based game and I’m there!
↝ I’ve been told I am an “old soul”. I have a love for b & w movies, bands from the ’60s & ’70s, vintage clothing, and the casual cup of hot tea. I swear I was born in the wrong decade haha☺
↝ I HATE JEANS! YOU'LL OFTEN FIND ME IN OVERSIZED SWEATERS, SWEATPANTS, OR LEGGINGS. IT'S A COMFORT THING ☺
↝ I’ve never traveled overseas. Europe is somewhere I’ve always wanted to go, especially Italy (being Italian and all). Any opportunity I have to travel, I take it.
↝ NOT REALLY A SUMMER PERSON.....JUST HATE THE HEAT! NOW, OF COURSE, I'D WELCOME THE SUNSHINE AND THE AMAZING BLUE SKIES ANY DAY BUT SUMMER IS DEFINITELY NOT MY FAVE SEASON. GIVE ME AUTUMN WITH FALLING LEAVES, SWEATER WEATHER, PUMPKIN SPICE, AND ALL THE SMELLS OF FRESH BAKING AND I'M THERE!
↝ BESIDES MY LOVE FOR AUTUMN, I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON. THE MAGIC, THE SMELLS, THE FEELING IT BRINGS. IT IS TRULY THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!!!
↝ I'M A VERIFIED COFFEE ADDICT AND PROUD OF IT!
↝ I LOVE WATCHING HGTV AND THE FOOD NETWORK. ON OCCASION, I'LL THROW IN SOME GREY'S ANATOMY OR LAW & ORDER: SVU JUST FOR A BIT OF DRAMA HAHA.
↝ YES, I'M A HOCKEY AND CURLING SPORTS FAN (THANKS MOM & DAD ☺). HOCKEY WATCHING IS PRETTY MUCH A GIVEN WHEN YOU GROW UP IN CANADA.
↝ I'M A LOVER OF MUSIC AND BY MUSIC, I MEAN ALL KINDS. IT'S IN MY DNA.
AND OF COURSE, I LOVE LOVE LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY! EVERY BEAUTIFUL ASPECT OF IT. BUT WHAT GIVES ME ALL THE FEELS ARE THE CAPTURED B & W'S. THEY ARE CLASSIC. VINTAGE. AND TIMELESS. ENCAPSULATED MOMENTS AND HUMAN CONNECTION, THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT. MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLY THIS; BE HONEST, BE IN THE MOMENT, AND HAVE FUN.
COME JOIN ME IN THE TELLING OF YOUR STORY AND LET'S PAINT SOME LASTING MEMORIES!
