Hello my name is: Monique most call me Moe or Chocolate Powder. I was born and raised as a Jersey girl. From Newark, NJ up to the suburb neighborhoods of Montclair, NJ. I am a young fab, sometimes weird , iPhone crazed, out-of-the-box thinker, loves vampires and  black & white photos who happens to have fell in-love with photography.

At the age of 12 years old I fell in-love with everything about photography, from there I went from Glenfield Middle School darkroom to Montclair High School Digital Photography classes. Classes during College. From then on I never stopped.

My main goal is to only capture MY world, you can enter it if you choose too but once you've entered you may not escape my thoughts and views on how I view the world YOU live in. I take my imagination and create LIFE by the clicks of the shutter button.

I enjoy landscapes and the art of nature. Majority of my time is spent building my portfolio from Models to Product  shooting & joys of event photography.

I want to give my clients different from the normal department store photos or the mall stand photos. It's not just about the money it's about the love of making someone happy.
