Hi there. I'm Monique. I like ice cream. And pastries. Anything sweet, really. I have 3 rescue pups. In my spare time, when I'm not busy chasing birds, I volunteer my photographic talents to Bichon Rescue of Orange County. But most of all - being a right-brained, creative, and spirited photographer - I aim to capture and tell stories of life's happy little moments through the eyes of my camera. Having a background in wildlife & landscape photography, I tend to bring my love of nature into my portraits. If you are just looking for a photographer to take pictures of you posing, looking straight at the camera, and smiling, I'm probably not what you're looking for. I believe the greatest moments in life are best captured candidly. Let's create many more happy and beautiful memories together!
