MXM Photography, otherwise known as Magic By Mande, was started as a dream of avoiding an 8-5 workday and daycare for my son. I was a single mom and wanted to spend as much time with my toddler as possible. I absolutely fell in love with what I was doing! The company has largely expanded since the days of three daycares every quarter to the point I am now taking on entire youth sports leagues and speaking at conferences to share what I’ve learned. Currently, I am the primary photographer with several others coming on board in the new year!
