Hello there Community! It is our turn to give back. We are raising money to give back to Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
Our community believes in community. Ever since this crisis began I have been wracking my brain about how I can give back. How can I help in a way that makes sense for me?
I can't wait to get back to work. But for now I am being safe and not doing any sessions until we are given the "all clear".
I still wanted to be able to help where I can. Since I normally donate sessions to many charities to help them raise funds, I can still do that right now.
Each month prior to the pandemic, the Food Bank provided food for about 1.8 million meals to an average of 103,500 people in need across 25 counties and eight cities in central and western Virginia. The food they distribute is typically passed through a network of 205 community partners—food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters—and 175 program sites serving children, seniors, and families. As you can imagine that need is even greater now.

Will You Select a Family Session?
If you are like me, your family is your world. You have this vision of how life is going to be, epic family vacations, magical holiday traditions that are full of joy and laughter, and being that house...you know the one where all the kids want to hang out.
Then came real life. Rushing to this appointment or that and the anxiety of being back by the time school lets out. Yes, friend this is my life too. I know that feeling you get when you are looking at your Facebook memories and you realize just how much he has changed over the past year. When “they” say the days are long and the years are short” they aren't lying!
And you know what?! YOU deserve to look and feel beautiful in your family portraits. I believe all women are beautiful. Without exception. Yes, I believe that you should have beautiful family portraits in your home and I believe you should feel beautiful in those portraits.

The experience was uplifting, inspiring and motivating
"This was one of the best most fun days for me! I felt so comfortable the moment I walked in the door, I was greeted and beautified! Monica herself is AMAZING and has a wonderful team working with her to ensure you are taken care of in anyway possible. This experience was so uplifting, inspiring, motivating, and truly just touched my heart that this woman does what she does to empower and uplift other women every day. Which I feel personally like we need more of this in our world today! I truly felt like I had known her my whole life it was so nice to be able to just be myself and talk and laugh, I can honestly say I wasn't ever uncomfortable and left there feeling incredible, not only about myself but just about the entire overall experience!"
Do this for yourself. You will be so glad you did!
"Whatever it is that’s holding you back put your mind at ease because you will leave there feeling more empowered and cared for than you could have ever dreamed. I could not believe that Monica was able to capture a side of me that I didn’t know existed. This person who was trapped deep inside of me was opened up that day I spent having my session. My story is one that is very long so I won’t bore you but I will just say that I have multiple medical conditions. I have had 48 surgeries and have scars all over my body from those. Monica and Mary Carroll’s encouragement had me owning those “battle trophies” and before I knew it I was shedding my clothes for the really adventurous poses. It was so much fun! I really didn’t want the session to end. Just remember with Monica it’s completely up to you. Those ladies are all about making you feel comfortable and cared for. Do this for yourself! You will be so glad you did! ❤️"
It could change your life, it changed mine.
"Where do I even begin?? Today I had a session with Monica & to say she is amazing, would be an understatement. Going into it, I wasn't exactly nervous but I still had my insecurities lingering in the back of my mind. Immediately I felt so comfortable and welcomed with open arms...even with those "awful" insecurities! She worked her magic with my awkward self and was so patient, understanding, and absolutely skilled at what she does. What an experience!! Never in a million years would I have thought I would be comfortable enough to even think about a boudoir photoshoot...much less, actually participate in one! But Monica changed that for me today. She opened my eyes up to the fact that I am beautiful. My stretch marks and saggy skin tell a story and THAT is beautiful. My insecurities are what makes me who I am and she showed me how to embrace that! Monica, from the bottom of my heart...thank you!!!!
And to anyone contemplating stepping out of your comfort zone, and booking a session...please do it! I can promise you, it will change your life!"
