Thank you for meeting me in my online home! I have enjoyed living in Atlanta my entire life. Since 2008, I have loved taking pictures of couples and families in our beautiful city, but my love doesn’t stop with just pictures. I love my husband, son, and daughter more than anything, but more importantly I love my Jesus with all of my heart. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this growing business in which I am able to bless others through my work. My mission as your photographer is to serve you beyond just taking your pictures. I cannot wait to become friends with you!
Josh and I met as freshmen at Berry. We started out as friends, our friendship developing into more at the end of our freshmen year. We dated most of college and got married in November of 2007 at Berry. He loves Jesus, video games, playing board games, and my cooking. He is my best friend and is such a supporter of my business. He does all of the behind the scenes work for me, and I am ever thankful for it. Without him, I couldn’t run my business. I love you, Josh!
Levi joined our amazing family in September of 2013 and has forever changed our lives. I never knew how amazing it could be being Mama or how awesome it be to see Josh as a Daddy. He lights up my days with his laughter and fun personality. I love watching him learn and grow on a daily basis. He truly is my best buddy. Our Levi Littleman simply rocks our world!
Abigail has an incredible story, one that I would love to share in person with you! We decided in late 2014 that we wanted to add to our family again and give Levi a sibling. The Lord had different plans and we were unable to get pregnant. After being pretty open about our infertility journey on my blog and at my church, we were approached in May of 2017 about adopting our Abigail. Through some meetings and prayer, it was so clear so fast that she was why we had to wait to have another child. She was born in November of 2017 and we could not be more in love. We are so blessed to add her to our family!
I’m not going to lie. I dragged my feet on Harry Potter for years. I only picked it up my senior year of college because it was a required book for an adolescent literature class I was taking. Even then, I didn’t love it. A year later I finally decided to try the rest and finally understood why everyone was so obsessed. Since then, I’ve read through the series too many times to count and visited Harry Potter World at least a half dozen times. I can’t wait until my next time I reread the series and get to taste some butterbeer in Hogsmeade!
Ever since I was a kid, I have loved running. I joined a track team in elementary school and ran until I graduated high school. My strength was sprinting, and got into distance running a few years ago and just love it all over again. In 2016, I ran 4 half marathons, making my grand total now 7. Here’s to more miles!
It’s bad y’all, how much I love ice cream. My clients know how much I love it and give me gift cards to ice cream places. I would eat it daily. I saw an article once that said ice cream for breakfast boosts your brain power for the day. I would so eat ice cream for breakfast if it wasn’t so bad for you! I basically run because of my addiction to ice cream. I even have a shirt that says “I run because I really, really like desserts.” Who else is with me??
I absolutely love cooking, and more recently discovered my love and talent for baking and decorating cookies. I love cooking for my husband, friends, and I even cook for my clients! I rarely use recipes and often come up with my own stuff. Go to my Instagram to check out my hashtags #mandimitchellcooks and #mandimitchellcookies
For as long as I can remember, I have loved pickles. My sandwiches and burgers have to have a layer of pickles for me to enjoy them. At any given time, you can look into my refrigerator and find at least two-three jars of various pickles. I love pretty much any type of dill pickle, but never any sweet or bread-butter! I seem to have passed this love onto my son!
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with Mexican food. I could eat it at least 3-4 days a week and be completely happy. After church in high school, my sister and I would go out to eat with friends and always get nachos with queso to share. I make guacamole all of the time at home; and last year discovered my love and obsession for Chipotle. I’ve even passed this love to my son as he always asks to go eat at the “chips and salsa place.” Seriously, y’all. I have a problem. Coupled with my love for ice cream and pickles (not together), I often find myself eating one of these food items daily.
