For as long as Monique can remember her favorite hobby was pulling out boxes of photographs and sifting through the hundreds of thousands of family photos. She would ask her mom «when was this?» and so the story would begin. To this day looking at printed film photographs makes Monique all giddy inside.
In her early adult years, she found herself madly in love and on a constant adventure with the opportunity to live in some beautiful & inspiring places; some of which included San Francisco, Mendocino, and San Diego. Monique photographed her love, her day-to-day, her outings, and her personal life. This need to document led her to then photographing other people’s love, and it became by far the most fulfilling.
Lover of the ocean, California, the 70's, being barefoot, shadows, golden light, the color blue, road trips, sunsets, VW's, solo jam sessions in the car, beach days, wild hair, tiki bars, getting lost in new places, dancing, sushi, and good music.
Monique's photography style can be described as nostalgic and photojournalistic. She specializes in telling love stories on film & digital photographs, as well as super 8 films. She tells your story as it unfolds through the day. She prompts when needed and does her best to make being photographed feel as natural as possible. Together with Monique you tell your story, your way.
