Hi there! I’m Monica.
I’m a (mostly) natural light, creative portrait, and event photographer. I like to shoot sessions of all kinds, specializing in a more artistic, less traditional approach.
I’ve had my photography accepted and displayed multiple times at The Stifel Fine Arts Center in Wheeling W.V. my photo, “Alice” won an honorable mention im summer 2017; I was commissioned, along with other local artists, to paint original designs on parking meters at Centre Market, Wheeling’s art district; recently I had work displayed in Institute Magazine; and I’ve done photo manipulation/design for the album art of local music talent throughout the last three years.
I quite literally take the path less traveled during my sessions, so be prepared to get your shoes dirty, hair pleasantly ruffled, and to stand like a weirdo in some plants if I ask you to–trust me, the end result is worth it.
Though I primarily shoot in the Wheeling and Saint Clairsville areas, travel is not out of the question (any excuse to drive to new places!). Your story is one in a million, precious, and unlike any other; let’s immortalize your special moments together!
Here are a few photos of me doing my thing because a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
