Life

I was originally born in Seoul, South Korea, but spent my childhood growing up in Nashville, Tennessee. When it was time for college, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to support my mama so she could open up her own business. Years later, I became a wife & mama to 2 furbabies.

In the midst of this, I was a jewelry designer, but somehow that led to a camera in my hands. That is when I realized that I had a passion for photography.

When I'm not taking photos, I'm consulting for small businesses, teaching at Pure Barre, or traveling with my soulmate.

Hi I'm Monica and I'm in love with capturing the essence of life through photography

Working with newborns, families, couples, and photographing weddings, I still love nothing more than looking through my lens and documenting the moments that make human relationships so rich. When I see the way you laugh together, the way you look at at each other, your eyes sparkle- I see your life as a work of art and it’s such an honor to be capturing yours.

Style

I treat every session and every family as a unique experience from the start. I am an observer and on the lookout for intimate and artistic images, catching the magical light while “moments” are happening. My journalistic style of shooting is for people that want a more "unposed look." I want to show your love as it is. If you are silly, I will capture your laughter. If you are emotional, then I will photograph your tears.

I work hard to get to know you so that when you see your photos, they look like you as you lived it. If you like what you are seeing on the site, then it’s time to contact me about your session or big day!
