Hi everyone! Charlotte here! So excited to share my acceptance in to the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. My recent nomination for Best New Emerging Child Photographer emboldened me to apply to this organization just a bit sooner than I was planning to, and I am so completely thrilled to share my acceptance! More info and updates coming soon, but wanted to share this exciting news before the upcoming holiday! -Charlotte  

Okay, back to your regularly scheduled mischief making!

What is a Pop Up Session?

Charlotte Mandrier

Are you wondering what our Pop Up Sessions might look like?

A Pop Up Session is a petite session and a family activity rolled in to one. We will be offering a just a small handful of these special events throughout the year. The types and locations of these sessions will vary, but each will have a seasonal theme. 

Some of our Pop Up Sessions will be booked by time slot, just like a traditional session. Other Pop Up Sessions will be a little more informal, with (get this!) walk in time windows! We are super excited to offer these.

With just a handful of Pop Up Sessions offered each year, we expect these bookings to go fast!

Want a hint what our next Pop Up Session will be? It'll involve staying up just a litttttle past bed time (you'll still be home before dark!) and for those who register in advance, you will receive a gorgeous folio in any one of these gorgeous summer linen colors!

once upon a time

Charlotte Mandrier


Once upon a time... in a little town called Healdsburg California... we started a portrait photography service for parents of mischievous children called Mischief & Mister.

We started Mischief & Mister so that parents could experience relaxing, stress-free, expectation-free, fun portrait sessions. And so they could come away with gorgeous family portraits to enjoy now, and for years to come. 

Our story is just getting started, we hope you'll join us to see what happens next.
