Just spent 3 hours talking to, dreaming with, and fully loving on @karraleighphoto. You guys, our Nashville workshop is seriously going to be so so so flipping good, and the fact that I’m getting to do all this with one of my closest friends is an actual dream come true. We’re honestly just SO excited and eager and ready for this epic experience! @passionworkshop_ has my heart.
Two people madly in love + a beach to ourselves + the sunniest day on the Oregon coast ever = magic. Trying to narrow this gallery down to less than 100 images is just impossible, so @calliey be ready!
Hi! It’s me! Loving life, at the beach, with crazy wind and beautiful sun. My ultimate high! So happy my eyes can’t possibly open. Haha so, I wanted to do a quick post to share my lip filler experience and put it out there / be open and completely transparent! I’m a firm believer that if anyone is insecure, they have the right to fix that, if given the opportunity. Although I do believe beauty is what’s inside, we would be naive to think anyone is just 100% confident. I’ve always overlined my mouth + wore lipstick faithfully because of my small lips. Was it debilitating? No. Was it such a huge insecurity I didn’t feel beautiful? No. But it was an insecurity and something I knew could be easily fixed, if I wanted. So I did a TON of research. I contemplated for a full year, watched videos, read blogs, and called for an hour consult with Dr. Levitt in Albany (@levittmedicalaesthetics ) On Wednesday I got my lips filled, and I couldn’t be happier. I had planned to just brush it under the rug and keep quiet, but I think that everyone deserves to feel good and do what they want with their body, and maybe me posting about my experience will be good for people to see. We’ve all got our things, and I just don’t want to feel like I’m hiding anything or feeling “fake” when I did something that makes me so happy! I couldn’t have had a better experience! If you’re interested in this too, I highly recommend Dr Levitt. Mention me and get $50 off too! Swipe for before and after :)
It’s been about a month since I’ve taken a photo, and I feel like the little break was much needed for my sanity and mental health. I loved taking the past few months to really focus on all the behind the scenes stuff of my business (presets and my website and taxes), but today I’m heading to the beach to shoot one of my 2019 couples, and I’m so dang excited! Sunny, beautiful, and road tripping with a dear friend? Yep, it’s gonna be a good day!
Happy birthday @meyersleonard11 !!!! You are one of the nicest guys around, with a way bigger heart and spirit than most people probably realize. So grateful for you and Elle, the road trip conversations, blazer games, and constant support and referrals! I hope you have the BEST day!!
Possibly my favorite father daughter dancing photo to date.... actually, definitely my fav! I just wanna jump on here real quick because Cali at @wedventuremag reminded me that my discount for $250 off the wedventure workshop this May is expiring tomorrow! If you want to come T/W May 7 and May 8 (the days I’ll be teaching!), use code Moniquebday for your discount! I’ll be teaching ON my bday, May 8, so come hangout with me?! I’ll be going over posing, primarily, and social media and client interaction! I have been looking forward to this for months, and am super excited and honored to be a part of it!
Crying because I just opened an email from @junebugweddings saying they’re going to publish this wedding! Ahhhh!!!! My first real wedding publication! Can’t wait to share a date, but until then, I’ll be happy dancing in my kitchen all day long!
I’ve never been this caught up in my life, seriously ever. This is the best feeling ever! Spending my night with my family, putting my babies to bed, drinking wine with my hunny, and watching “The Sinner” on Netflix. Yes, please! Also, apparently I’m on a black and white kick and didn’t realize it! One of my favorite presets in my pack, for sure.
