We decided to have family pictures done while on vacation and coming from Arizona, I was so impressed with Monika!! My kiddos were wiggle worms and she was so patient, didn't rush us at all and the pictures turned out absolutely incredible!!!! She even included some extra candid shots that I loved!! Her colors were so vibrant in the shots. Will definitely use her again!!!! Lori
Monika is such a fun photographer to work with. She not only provides great ideas and direction but is very knowledgeable on what lighting and scenery works best for different types of pictures. My husband and I had a great time working with Monika and would definitely recommend her for all your professional picture needs!

I LOVE Monika! She is an incredible photographer and an even better person! She made our day so special by taking the most beautiful pictures and by being so kind and friendly. She really has an eye for what shots look best, and she will make you feel so at ease. She wants to help make your day special and it really shows. What really sets Monika apart from other photographers is that she is also an extremely talented artist! For an additional fee, she can create a personalized painting for you. She painted a picture of the venue that my husband and I got married at, and it is truly the centerpiece of our entire home. I can't recommend Monika enough. She is the BEST!!! Mary and Ben
Oh Monika. Where do I begin? I am so impressed with your ability to capture authentic and beautiful moments. We loved having your photography skills on our wedding day and you are a genuinely nice person with fantastic energy. I do hope to work with you again!!!
We had such a wonderful experience with Monika on our maternity shoot. We have never had professional pictures taken and not only did she provide great direction but she made the shoot so much fun! Monika even offered us fun props. We can't wait until our baby arrives, we are hoping she's available for our newborn photos! We definitely recommend Monika for professional pictures of any occasion!

We found out about Monika from a recommendation for our wedding. Monika was so great to work with. She agreed to work with our limited budget and we are so happy with the results. We met with her to discuss what to expect and plan out what to do before the big day. During the ceremony and reception she worked so hard to get every shot and had very creative ideas of the couple shots. Even on her way out she still had her camera in hand snapping every moment. It was a delight to work with her and we plan to call her the next time we need photos done. We highly recommend her for her great eye, artistic perspective, and friendly personality!

Well, I had the WONDERFUL pleasure to work with Mrs. Monika Anderson! Her gift and ability to know what to do with the talents she has, has enfolded in front of us! The way she captures life, beauty, and the models looks has put an extra spark in the way most of us would view the world. I'm grateful that she wanted to take out time to work with me, it was an AMAZING experience! She sure did pull a lot out of me, this hobby is definitely her niche! I pray that her gift will grow through the lenses of others and increase, also that she continues to impact people! Thank you!
Monika is a delifghtful person and a very talented photographer! The photoshoot could not have been more fun and the pictures were so beautiful. It ws about 85 degrees outside, but Monika kept us laughing the entire time, and she went to great lenghts to get the perfect shots. I would definitely recommend!
I did a makeover and photo shoot recently. I had never done one before and I wasn't sure what it would be like. I was extremely impressed with the turn out of the photos. Monika captured everything in unique and creative ways and made me feel at ease while doing it. She was fun and really knew what she was doing!! So glad I had the chance to work with her!
Monika is an Amazing photographer. I have worked with a few other photographers before but she is definitely my favorite. She knows the right angle for each model and captures the moment of the best version of him or her. She is very skillful and talented and also knows how to use different objects to complete each shoot and make her model/client looks better in it. She was super fun to work with and she gave me the better result than I expected. I'm very happy with my pictures and I would highly recommend her to other people who is in need of professional photoshoot.
Monika came highly recommended by a couple different friends of ours (whose photos turned out great), so we decided to give her a try. The photo shoot was fun and Monika paid attention to a lot of details, from lighting to natural elements to poses, that had a big impact on the final results. We went into the session just hoping to get one or two nice family shots out of it. However we ended up with a package of over 20 because there were so many great pictures and such a variety of poses that we really couldn't narrow it down anymore! The results are great memories that are well worth the relatively small investment. Thanks Monika!
Monika is a brilliant photographer, she took amazing photographs of my newborn son. Her style and passion for photography definitely surpasses any other studio work I have had done in the past. The photographs came out better than I could imagine, she really gave me more than I expected. She handled my son with such care and her expertise made me feel relaxed during our session. I am so lucky to have such cherished portraits of my son. Thank you, Monika!
Monika has a great eye for details. She does an excellent job setting up a scene and posing the baby to create an artistic and adorable photo. Her love for babies is evident in the way she manages a photo shoot and how they respond to her. Monika takes great care to make her client happy and makes sure the photos capture the personality of the baby. Monika works hard at editing each photo and in providing proofs in a timely manner. She is passionate about photography and this shows 100% of the time.
Monika is a great photographer because she caters to what you want and need. She always has lots of cute and fun ideas but is also willing to try anything that you would like. Working with Monika has always been a blast! She makes sure that you are comfortable and having fun. She is especially great with kids but overall has an exceptional eye for photography and works great with everyone.
Monika has been creating beautiful art for years and her photography is no exception. She tells a story with the images she captures. When we had our family winter photo shoot, Monika paid extraordinary attention to the details that make a beautiful scene. She brought props and special items such as a knit afghan to wrap up in, chalk boards with Christmas messages, jingle bells, and even hats and scarves to brighten up the scene. She caught those unruly wisps of hair, coaxed smiles from our busy one-year-old, and arranged us in a variety of fun positions with close attention to the background and lighting throughout. Her talent in creating art through photography is enhanced by her positive, warm presence and her wonderful way with people. She is magic with children! I highly recommend her.
