Meet Monica

For as long as I can remember I have always been involved with doing something creative. My mother always pushed my sister and I to play the piano, participate in dance recitals, musicals, plays, modeling, and beauty pageants. My father would encourage me to play sports like basketball and run track. I appreciate my parents for allowing me to have these experiences as a kid and I believe my childhood plays a big part in who I am today and how I run my photography business.

My photography career began in 2010 after graduating from college for web design. My passion for creativity quickly steered towards photography and I haven’t looked back. I take the time to create relationships with my clients. Most of the brides that I have worked with keep in touch with me long after the wedding day is over. Many new brides do not realize that their wedding photographer is the one person that is with them the most on their wedding day. By the time your wedding day comes around, it will seem more like a good friend is capturing your special moments rather than a hired helper. Thank you for reading and taking the time to learn a little more about me. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need additional information. Congrats on your engagement! Love and Blessings!

Testimonials 

Monica did a fantastic job with our wedding a few weeks ago! She is by far the best vendor we had and she really made our day memorable. Throughout the entire day, she went above and beyond for us and we received so much amazing feedback from all our guests. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for any type of photography services. Andy Story

Monica did our wedding 2 weeks ago! We live in San Francisco and she was amazing to work with from over 2,500 miles away! Always made herself available and responded to emails very quickly! She made our day spectacular!! Captured every special moment, and we honestly could not have been any happier with her. Our sneak peeks have been amazing! The day before the wedding she asked if we had a videographer, which we didn’t, so she took it upon herself to put a video together of the ceremony! It was perfect!!! Thank you sooo much!!! Jenna Story

 

Monica’s talent, creativity, & professionalism is second to none! Her passion for photography is evident as she captures special moments, turning them into memories of a lifetime.

You will have a fun and one of a kind experience that will showcase your unique style and personality.  My approach to a each senior photoshoot is to create an upbeat “high fashion” model experience. I would describe my high school senior photography style as “fashionably edgy” and I gain most of my inspiration from fashion magazines and style blogs. After your photo session you will have the opportunity to purchase customized photo products that will set you apart from your classmates. A professional make-up artist is also available for an additional fee to enhance the over all look and quality of your photos.  Feel free to contact me for more information. I can’t wait to work with you!

Newborns

Your newborn baby will only be this teeny and tiny once. It is best to photograph your newborn within the first 10 days after birth while they are snuggly, soft, warm, bendy, curly, and perfect-in-every-way. Parents, partners, siblings, and grandparents are also encouraged to participate in a newborn photo session. The session fee of $250.00 includes photography time, professional editing, and 10 digital images on CD with a copyright release for printing. Additional products such as keepsake jewelry, photo albums, and image cubes are also available. Contact the studio today and schedule your newborn photo session. Day, evening, and weekend appointments are available.

How to prepare for your newborn photography session:

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date. Once you arrive home from the hospital with your brand new baby we can arrange a suitable time and day for your session. Newborn photo sessions can take 2-2.5 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting. Parents, partners, siblings, and/or grandparents are also welcome to participate in the photos. If breastfeeding I recommend that mom’s bring a snack and a water bottle. There is no need to bring special props or clothing unless you wish to do so. I offer props and wraps to dress baby in and help add variety to the photos. Please also bring baby dressed in a sleeper that does not have to go over their head to be removed.

Maternity Photo Session

In such a short time, this experience will be just a memory. A maternity photo session is the perfect way to remember the beauty and gift of your pregnancy. Capturing this moment through professional photographs is an amazing gift to leave for the generation you are creating.

 

 

Maternity sessions should be scheduled between weeks 28 and 32 of the pregnancy. Dad and children are also welcome to pose with mom and belly. Maternity sessions can take up to 45 minutes and can be taken outdoors(whether permitting) or inside the studio. No need to worry about stretch marks or blemishes as most imperfections can be removed in photoshop. maternity gowns that can be worn during your photo session. The session fee is $125.00 with print packages starting at $200.00.
