Maternity / Family / Female Portrait
Creating magic with every image
I set up Monagraphs to combine two types of photography that are really close to my heart – portraits and nature.
I create enchanting and enduring images to capture most precious moments of maternity, motherhood and family life.
I'm a Portrait Photography expert passionate about creating timeless portraits of people immersed in nature.
I specialise in creating soulful painterly images that capture pregnancy, motherhood and all other special moments in your life.
I love working with women who are passionate about nature, environment, animals, art, healthy lifestyle and nutrition.
My work can be described in 3 simple words: nature, art and love..... with a sprinkle of magic.
EMBRACE your body, feel EMPOWERED
and immerse yourself in MOTHER NATURE
I'm a professional Maternity Photographer who creates elegant, classy and timeless portraits of expecting mothers immersed in nature.
I want every woman to feel empowered and beautiful during this special time in her life and to appreciate her body that is going through some amazing changes.
I have over 30 bespoke custom made maternity gowns that fit all shapes and sizes and I am confident you will look and feel fantastic.
Capturing timeless images from maternity and motherhood
Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman's life and a wonderful journey to document and preserve through photography. Many women feel reluctant to have photos taken at this time because they don't feel comfortable or confident in their bodies, or are unsure how to pose or what to wear. I have been photographing expectant mothers for many years and I can promise you that a photo session with me will leave you feeling both empowered by the process and delighted by the results.
"Monika this is the best picture I’ve seen that shows how kids are rarely in the same emotional place at the same time”
I believe that life is filled with fleeting moments that have great significance .... love, laughter, grumpy faces, tender touches, smiles, hugs and so much more.
Children don’t stay small for long … so why not capture the joy and spontaneity of childhood forever in all its heart-melting madness.

Few words about me
I am a proud cat mother, nature lover, wild swimmer, munro bagger, dreamer, book worm, sci-fi and fantasy nerd, yogi and foodie.
I am passionate about nature, environment, animal rights as well as sustainable and ethical living.
My work is heavily influenced by world of plants, trees and flowers; in my spare time I create macro photography images that depict all the little things that we often overlook in our busy life
Since moving to Scotland I discovered newly found love for the great outdoors and munros are my go to place to recharge my soul.
Monika is a true talent, she is very professional and made me feel like a goddess throughout the shoot! Doing a maternity shoot was so important to me, and she made sure to talk me through the vision I was hoping for, well can I just say that way surpassed my expectations!
The detail M goes to, from letting me do a pre-meeting to try on dresses and talk ideas, to then helping find a perfect location, to then making sure I felt completely comfortable on the day, letting my partner be involved and making him feel at ease, to even helping me take some behind the scenes shoots for my social media. Once the final edits were ready, she sat with me to show me the different ways you can get print outs, I went with a Matt finish high quality board print, which looks stunning hung up in my house, all my guests comment on them. I will treasure these prints forever and the memory of doing the shoot and feeling like a queen!
