Hi, I'm Monique
About 17 years ago, I stumbled upon an old Konica Minolta camera with a film, picked it up and began to take photos. I found I really loved it, I developed an eye for detail and it was where I could go into my own little world and connect with everything around me.
Originally from Auckland, I then moved to Franz Josef Glacier in the South Islands West Coast where I spent 13 wonderful years and where my love for photography really blossomed and became part of my everyday life. I never went anywhere without my camera! It was the most scenic place I had ever seen and the scenery was so diverse from mountains to lakes and the glacier itself – photographic opportunities were endless.
I am a self-taught Photographer who is very passionate about what I do and love being able to share my images with other people that tell a story and make them feel like they are in the moment. I love everything about photography from Landscapes to Portraits, Weddings, Newborn & Pregnancy Photography & Macro Photography.
I only print very limited copies of my landscape photos which makes them very unique. My images are available for purchase, printed onto weather-proof corrugated iron which can be hung outside on a fence or patio area, canvas a singular print by itself or a hand-made frame to order as you will see in my online gallery.
I am a Mother to three children & I love Nature & waiting for that perfect moment even if it takes lots of patience. Let me be the one to capture your special moments in time so that you can cherish them for a life-time, having photos is so important & they are so special to look back on in years to come.
I like to work with my clients closely to meet their needs & wishes & making the whole experience an enjoyable one while capturing them for you. If you would like to meet with me please feel free to email or call to arrange a meeting time, I am based in Onerahi in Whangarei.
