Monika's Photography

My love of photography began when I was a young girl and my grandfather gave me a camera.  It wasn’t the fanciest or best camera but it provided me with the tool to capture what I saw around me.

 I have always loved both animals and images. Growing up I made a notebook with pictures that I had collected of animals. It was because of my notebook and the photos that I took which helped me to learn that pictures can provide memories. Having a collection allowed me to revisit the things that I loved and always had a way of making me happy.

Through the years my love of photography has never dulled. Rather, it has become my passion.  Photographs have the ability of capturing a moment in time and provides us with something that can last forever.

In addition to my love of photography and animals I also love people. This combination is the fuel that propels me into capturing special moments. You see, to me photographs have the ability to provide people with memories and I love the idea of people keeping photographs forever.  I really love to photograph people and their pets and not only see the love between the two, but to provide an owner with a keepsake of their special family member.

I also enjoy taking photos of families.  I like to make our time together fun and use the setting to help each family member create perfect photos that will last a lifetime. It has been great for me to be able to take annual family photos because I am given the opportunity to provide families with their own personal history which will be handed down through the generations.  What an honor for me and a treasure for my clients!

Among my most favorite photos to take are of weddings. I feel it is a privilege be a part of someone’s happiest of days like their wedding.  This day only happens once and I do my best for their special day so that they can enjoy it always due in part because of my photos.

 I believe that a photographer and the bride and groom form a special relationship. I recognize that I have earned the trust of the couple to deliver outstanding photos and tell their love story through those photos. The story begins with their engagement pictures and continues throughout their wedding day.  I combine my love of people and passion for photography to deliver memories that last a lifetime for couples and their families.

What started out with a gift from my grandfather has provided me with a passion to pass along the gifts of my work to others.  I look forward to sharing my passion with you and your family and providing you with your very own collection of treasures!
