Thumbtack Spotlight

Mandy Clark Photography

(10 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I am a portrait photographer based out of Charleston and Summerville, South Carolina. I specialize in newborn, children, family, and maternity photography. I love watching my clients grow in front of my camera lens, whether it’s from baby bumps to families growing into bigger ones. What I love the most about what I do is being able to not only call my clients as "clients" but calling them great as friends and family while working with them over the years. I love getting their emails of excitement when they view their galleries. They often say, "Wow! I can't believe you captured that. I would have never known!" The dads would also say, “Wow! I never knew what went into a newborn session. This is awesome! You are a baby whisperer!” Most of of all, I love being able to see my art on their walls. There is such a huge difference in canvases versus digital copies that come in the mail. It always takes my breath away to see the canvases in real life, and it makes me think, “Did I really do this”? There is something so rewarding looking back at a session and just smiling because I know they will have these memories forever to pass on as their legacy. Basically, my heart and soul goes into every session. I would rather keep and take care of the clients I already have than be out looking for new ones. That's not to say that I don’t like getting new ones; it's just that you must know that once you have been my client, you will be well taken care of.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

Ever since I could remember, I always had a camera anywhere I went. I wanted those memories in my photo albums so much because it’s a lot of fun looking back with my children, showing them all the fun things I did growing up. I will say, though, that before I realized that, it was my kids who helped me decide. I had always said from day one of my oldest child's birth that, “I don’t care how much it costs on outfits and sessions; they will be getting their Christmas pictures professionally done every year.” Well, as life would have it, it never failed as both my children either would be sick with runny noses, or my son would bump his face just before the pictures were supposed to be done, and they wouldn’t edit that stuff out. I would pay all this money to big boxed stores just to have poorly posed or edited images. It just so happened that on December 2011, both my kids were out of school for being sick, and I had already bought their Christmas picture outfits. I brought out my “big girl camera” and played around in front of the decorated tree and fire place. Although they weren’t perfect, they were some of my favorite images. That day it challenged me to become a better photographer. Now, I feel like I have succeeded in my challenge. Last year, I moved into a commercial studio, and I have since built a great client base in my area. In the future, my goal would be to reach out and teach new and upcoming photographers the ins and outs of my success and failures based on my own experiences.
