Hey, there! Thanks for dropping by. I’m so glad you’ve come by to visit my blog and portfolio and I hope you enjoy your stay while you’re here.
If you want the short & sweet history of how I got here, keep reading. If you want to get a glimpse of my soul and understand what breathes life into this calling of mine, click here to read a post I wrote about my origin.
After photographing everything in sight for almost ten years, I’ve finally found my voice in the photography industry. I adore photographing editorial inspired women’s portraiture. Showing ladies how stunning they are (just as they are) is so liberating (for me AND for them).
Capturing a woman’s essence and spirit is undeniably one of the best feelings in the world. A lady needs nothing but her own traits to be fascinating and lovely – she doesn’t need to lose weight, color her hair, whiten her teeth, get a tan. Breaking through the barriers of what society tells us is perfect is a beautiful process.
I spent five years in the broadcast world learning the ins and outs of moving imagery and light. During my time with video is where I discovered my love for the stillness. Starting in a different field, that’s directly related to photography, has given me a truly unique perspective. I see the world differently and I pour that into my photographs.
I’m Manda Koolis. I capture beauty. I am a professional photographer and I can’t wait to tell your story with my images.
