I am Monica, I combine my passion for photography with my love of food, wine, and the finer things in life.

Always inquisitive and eager to learn, I am inspired by the worlds of travel, art, architecture, fashion, design, food and photography.

These interests give my work a much more robust look and feel.

Whether I’m collaborating with clients on cookbooks, attending food expos, traveling to remote culinary hotspots, or plating the most delectable ensemble of food and wine, I tailor each project to my client's vision. 

Based half of the year in beautiful MarcoI Island, Florida, and the other half in Chicago, I specialize in Personal Branding Portraits and Editorial food photography with a reputation for fantastic imagery and an easygoing attitude. I know exactly how to tell the story of food within the frame.

I have been fortunate that my life and work has taken me to some of the most beautiful destinations across Asia, America and Europe. As a Getty Images exclusive contributor, my photographs have been published extensively worldwide in a large variety of media. 

When I am not taking photos, I'm spending my time with my hubby, traveling, fishing or golfing.
