“Monica is exactly what I would want in a professional photographer. Admittedly, I was a little anxious about being in front of the camera due to little experience of knowing how to pose and adding my one year old daughter in on the shoot. After a luxurious hair and makeup session that was a fabulous addition to my photoshoot, Monica was able to put me at ease and get some really great shots once I was camera ready. She gave simple to follow directions behind the camera that made for many options to chose from when it came time to review the images. I will cherish the photos she captured of my daughter and me forever.”

"My normally super shy 4-year old came out of his shell quickly with help from Monica's quick jokes and warm smiles. She also had my 7-year old smiling from the start. Even my husband enjoyed himself during our shoot!"
