Hi, My name is Mandeep Sidhu known as Mandy Sidhu. I am a professional and trained photographer, graphic designer and an artist. All these fields together helped me a lot to create the best work for my clients that always put smiles on their face. I got more than 15 years experience in New Zealand working in sorts of genres. I got my training form 'PhotographyInstitute' and Media Design School. I am lucky to get up in the morning and do the job that I am passionate about.
I love telling stories. I love to capture special moments, smiles, eyes, expressions, beauty, cuteness, boldness, that glow, the innocence, the wrinkles, the real story behind that laugh, the soul in the eyes. My knack in art and design helped me a lot to portray people in a desired way that is honest, artistic and definitely unique. I love to see the smile and the lit up eyes when they look at their images. I love that i get to create memories that they can cherish forever.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done Newborn, Maternity, Family, Babies, Siblings, Glamour/Beauty, Personal Branding, Executive Head Shots, Engagements, Pre wedding Weddings, Parties, Events big and small. When it comes to Family, Maternity, Couple, Pre Wedding session, I love to show the intimacy between the couple and connection between the family. I know my way how to guide them to feel them comfortable and how to pose them to make it look as natural as possible and still showing their special bond and connection between them. With Newborn yo me health and safety is first. I try my best to put them into all lovely cute poses but I never force any baby to any requested pose if they are not comfortable in that. Every baby is different and how to make them look their best and along with the parents is again what I love to do. Till now I have always seen smiles on my clients face.
