Creating a portrait in the space that is the heart of your family, and means the most to you and yours, is always a great idea. Clients sometimes wonder whether their home would make a suitable backdrop, but you’d be surprised how much potential we can see that you might not be able to imagine. Often, we only need a tiny vignette to create something truly special and unique.


P.S. We’re excellent at moving furniture around to set the perfect scene, and we promise we’ll put it back!

  • I wholeheartedly recommend Monica and Michael to anyone looking for the “wow” factor!  Their work is amazing, and their attention to those oh-so-important details is second to none.  I wouldn’t trust anyone else when it has to be perfect – they handle all of our agents’ professional photos!

  • Working with Monica and Michael is like working with close friends or family members,  that’s how intimately they connect with their subjects.   They have that special gift, unique to true artists, to turn a moment in time into a priceless heirloom as opposed to a mere photograph.

  • Monica and Michael have been our family photographers for over a decade.  They have captured images of three generations that I will cherish for the rest of my life.  From backyard shots of our immediate family (including a litter of puppies) to graduation pictures of my kids to an incredibly well orchestrated Christmas Eve session with 23 members of our extended clan, I will forever be grateful to them for the memories.  Because their work isn’t just about family portraits.  Those images will be treasured by our family for years to come and will help us to remember the best times of our lives.
