It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.
— Alfred Stieglitz 1864 – 1946

BEHIND THE CAMERA

Hello and welcome to Red Mirror!

I’m Monique and if you asked my friends about me, they would say that my son is my world, I love the colour red, I have two crazy dogs, I am often found hanging from a trapeze and, most importantly, I am obsessed with photography.

Capturing life’s seldom seen moments and creating the perfect memory, is for me, what photography is all about.  After several years of taking photographs as a hobby, and driving friends and family crazy taking their pictures, I realised my real passion was capturing people.  I am never happier or more energised than when I am taking pictures or planning a shoot, it seemed a natural (if slightly scary) decision to take the plunge and start taking images professionally.

I love getting to know new people, be it adults, babies, teenagers or even the family dog!  Every person is different and I believe every shoot should be different too.  It’s important to me to capture the perfect moment, and I honestly believe to do that you need to make a personal connection; so let’s start with a coffee and a chat to get to know each other.  This way we can confidently work together to capture images that you will want to keep and share for a lifetime.  

I prefer to work with natural light as much as possible, and always shoot on location rather than in a studio.  I find this keeps the experience relaxed for you the client, and as a result allows us to have more fun, which ultimately delivers more natural photographs. 

I’d love to work with you to capture memories that you’ll treasure forever.  If you would like to meet me and chat about how your shoot could work then please get in touch.

Can’t wait to meet you!
