Welcome to my site! I am Monique Ellis a wife and mother, who loves God, family, and a great picture! I drool over nice camera, lenses, and tripods so I guess that makes me a bit of a photography geek. I absolutely love the feeling of holding a camera but love even more looking at a beautiful moment that I was able to make live on forever. The common saying is that a picture is worth a thousand words but to me its worth ten thousand words so that is why I pay attention to every detail possible during my sessions. I want for my customers to have a very personal and pleasurable custom photography experience equivalent to what a photography enthusiast like myself would love which is why I require pre-sessions to go over YOUR wants and desires for your session.
My love affair with photography started long long ago when I was just an adolescent. I can remember making a camera #1 on my Christmas wish list and after I received it we became inseparable . A roll of film, extra batteries, and my camera was a necessity and frankly the reason that I carried a purse most often. What an exciting feeling to see a beautiful moment and be able to capture it with this square box. Over the years cameras have evolved and so has my photography through the use of advanced technology. I am always looking for the latest software, trends, and classes in photography because it truly is my PASSION. During my undergrad I worked as a photographer for 3 short years and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I was addicted to documenting moments in time that seem to go by way too fast.
Beauty can be found everywhere and in almost all things that is why I have not limited myself in photography. I photograph families, maternity, newborns, children, and seniors.
