Happy Monday!

I hope everyone is recovering from a very low energy game. I don’t know, even the commercials were off for me yesterday. Loved Bruno Mars, but I need a little more controversy in my half time show. Haha. Possibly, its me that’s off and not the superbowl!

Enough of that! This little boy, 8 days new, makes me smile so much. He was an angel during the shoot and I just couldn’t stop cuddling him.

Welcome, little Carter…

Thank you for choosing me to capture this precious little package. I am so lucky to work with little miracles like him!

What a great way to start my morning! Look at these precious buns!

Baby Easton was such a delight to photograph. His mama and him shared so many sweet moments as we chased him around the beach.

What a great, upbeat duo! Thanks for setting my day off right :)

I can’t believe my little guy is already one! I’m so sad that he is a toddler. I’m just not ready to be angry with him :)

Happy Birthday you monster. At least you smiled for me at 7 days old!

Happy New Year!

It was so nice to take a much needed vacation. However, trying to get up for school, work, and life today, was rough!

Thank you to everyone for the best year ever for Photos By Monika! I met so many amazing families, kiddos, and little miracles. I did not have time to post so many of these shoots on my blog. Instead, I have put together a little video. I hope you enjoy!

Happy Holidays to all! Thank you to everyone for making this the busiest, craziest, and most wonderful year for Photos By Monika. I am officially done for 2013 and soooo grateful!

I am way behind on blog posts. Rather than trying to play catch up (which I have to do on Christmas presents), I will be posting all of my favorite images from each session in one post. Be on the look out next week!

So, being the efficient, gotta- get -crap- done- the- fastest- I -can, type of person I am- I used my own kids for the Photos By Monika holiday card. I received so many comments on “how sweet Max is looking at his brother”. Well, this 11 month old is HUNGRY and wants his ice cream. Nothing tame about this little fella.

Here is the card, followed by the outtakes. Enjoy and once again, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Happy December! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I had to take a little break from Christmas cards to introduce this angel to you.

Happy Monday y’all! Boy, am I am feeling the pending holidays! The parking lots are packed, trees are up, and holiday beanies are on!

I couldn’t resist adding a few ornaments to this little guy. Please welcome 10 day new, Brett.

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! For months, I have been anticipating working with the famous newborn photographer, Keri Meyers. Well, today is the day! I am off to Seattle to do some exciting work! I cannot wait to come back and share all of the goodies from the trip!

In the meantime, I have one of my favorite families to share with you. I have been working with these peeps for years and am so excited to announce the 2nd addition to their family.

Eight days new, Miss Frankie:

What happens after all of this excitement and laughter, when you’re five months old?

Well, you take a nap of course. Right in the middle of the shoot!

They were bummed that they didn’t do a newborn shoot with Chase. Well, we got one! Who says you can’t pose a baby! I say, they got lucky and got a two-fer :)

I know it’s a little late to post this, but I thought, “ah, what the heck. Why not?”.

It is so hard to get my munchkins together and smiling. Even a photographer is not immune to the stubbornness of their own children!

Happy belated Halloween! Although, it is Halloween/dress up day in our house everyday!

I love my little bat vampires!
