“Monique is the consummate professional. You could easily copy and paste the definition itself—extremely skilled, accomplished, complete in every detail—and you’d have the perfect description of Monique. She’s our go-to for beautiful photography and easy-to-follow recipes that elevate our brand. She’s helped Misfits Market become a resource for inspiration and education regarding meal prep and cooking and without her careful eye and talent, our social media feeds would not nearly be as beautiful as it is now. I know that whenever I work with Monique that I’ll receive creative ideas, delicious recipes, and beautiful photography—all delivered in a timely manner. There’s nothing more to say about Monique other than she’s creative. Prompt. Has elevated our brand. Is easy to work with. And just gets it!”
“Go away. You can’t have her! Monique is so multi-talented and wonderful to work with that I don’t want you to take her away from us. Yes, I’m being selfish, because she brings so much passion, curiosity, and artistic talent to every project, we’d suffer without her. Though she’s an independent artist & creator, I still consider her part of our team, which will make it worse if you keep hiring her away from us. So, please ignore all of this beautiful work, forget how incredibly talented and collaborative she is, and move along to some other equally perfect person, if they even exist.”
"Monique came highly recommended by fellow photographer Steve Walter. I looked her up and was amazed by her portfolio and decided to reach out. After a few emails and phone calls we set up our first shoot. Monique absolutely rocked! She came in with such positive energy and excitement which I loved. The whole team was really impressed with the way she styled the product and how hard she worked. I’ve since shot with her again and the second time was even better. Monique has a great eye for not only styling food but photography as well. She jumps right in to make sure each shot is looking good and that is a huge help when working under pressure and on deadlines. The final images we produced got a ton of positive feedback and that was due largely to Monique. I can’t say enough good things about her and I’m looking forward to working together again."
"Working with Monique has been an absolute pleasure, and has elevated the way my company showcases our products! Whether my team has very specific requests or needs Monique to creatively come up with a new recipe, we are always thrilled with the final product! Not only is her photography stunning, but her meticulous attention to detail comes across in every project we've worked on together. From the perfectly bright lighting, the gorgeous food styling, and the delicious recipes themselves, Monique always goes above and beyond to deliver phenomenal work that we are proud to share on our social channels and website. I highly recommend Monique and look forward to working with her more in the future!"
"When I first discovered Monique’s work on social media, I was surprised to find that she wasn’t already a staff photographer for a national food magazine. Her portfolio of food photography was impressive, both in scope and quality. After years of working with her, I’m even more impressed; she is reliable, great on a deadline (a requisite trait in the publishing world!), and eternally enthusiastic about her projects. Moreover, she has a dedication to high-quality work that I find admirable…and that makes my job immeasurably easier. With Monique, I never worry about what level of photographic work I’m going to receive; every shot she has submitted has been worthy of the magazine’s cover, and many have been printed there. Monique is simply outstanding in her field. She intuitively understands how best to arrange and frame a shot, and that is a difficult skill to come by.
Few authors or photographers find themselves in every issue of edible Nutmeg, but Monique is one I can rarely do without. The pages of the magazine are enriched by everything she contributes to it, and I am both lucky and grateful to have her work as a regular presence in it."
“As a chef, my heart and soul is put into every single dish we present to our guests. Having spent 20 years working between New York City, Miami and Los Angeles, I regularly worked with the famed Alan Battman, who is to this day, still a dear friend. I can safely say that Monique is in a category on par with one of the most Premier food photographers in the country. She has a way of working, learning and growing alongside to capture the subjectivity that is required to truly depict the food in its natural state, the way the chef intended. She is not set in her ways, but rather, listens, adjusts and delivers. It is a great pleasure of mine to consider her part of the Essex family as well as a dear friend. I strongly recommend to look no further if anyone is looking for a food photographer.”
