Austin native Mandy Harris started framing picturesque settings when she was just nine. Though she’s enjoyed photographing the Colorado Rocky Mountains and beaches of Mexico, she’s found her greatest joy capturing interior and exterior design. She divides her time between Airbnb and AL Collective, an Austin-based wedding and portrait studio. Thanks to the Neighborhoods Project, Mandy explored her hometown in a new light.
