Real life is beautiful. That’s exactly what Monica loves to capture in her photos. And she shines in capturing those moments.
Though Monica is a self-proclaimed perfectionist, she has a genuine knack for capturing the perfect moments. She can be there to capture you just being your genuine self, or she can create a situation in which a posed look can appear completely natural.
The images Monica enjoys taking most are the ones in which she can see you being yourself — the goofy, genuine, perfectly imperfect and starstruck-kind-of- love moments. They’re all real and beautiful.
A native of Dallas who now resides just outside Austin, Monica is happy to travel in each direction — and even farther — to capture those special moments of family members and friends with whom you share the most important relationships. That includes weddings, portraits, proposals, lifestyle and more. And when you look back on your photographs, you will feel like you’re in that moment again.
Having taken photography in college, she found a true passion. After having children, she found the inspiration to pursue her passion again, and she has never looked back. She enjoys that it is an art that is always challenging her and evolving, and she is always seeking further education and creative experiences.
Monica loves working with natural light, and she edits her images in a rich and colorful style you will fall in love with.
She also sets herself apart by going beyond just snapping photos you’ll look at for years to come. Monica cares deeply about people, and it shows. She will carry your dress and veil as you walk between photo locations, practice patience with your little ones if they’re having a tough time sitting in front of the camera, get to know you and your family because she actually wants to know all about you, and will remember your little one’s birthday next year or that they LOVE the color blue. Monica loves the relationships she builds with her clients just as much as she enjoys having them in front of her lens.
