{Spotlight On:} Monika Colichio

Hi Mamas!

Another week has come and gone. We are back at it with another amazing talented photographer to feature this week! And boy has she picked a fantastic theme of {Every Lucky Day}! Monika Colichio is our judge and you have to come over to her business, MColichio Photography, and check out her amazing work.

Read a little bit more about her and her photography journey below...

Tell us about your photography journey up until now:

I didn’t realize how much I inherited from my dad and his craftsmanship until I found myself in my garage making a bed for my daughter. I was always very crafty. It wasn’t until my kids were born when I got my first DSLR.

As a new mom, I was trying to capture every moment of their life, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that photography became my biggest passion.

I photographed family, friends, and their friends. I made a FB page and down the line, this affair turned into work that I love deeply.

Is there someone that inspires you? 

I have many photographer friends, each of them inspire me in so many different ways!
I also adore the work of Andria Lindquist for subtle photographs and muted colors, Laura Zalenga for her amazing creativity with no boundaries, and Emma Wood for showcasing childhood through poetic storytelling.

Nikon? Canon? Other? What's in your bag?

I switched from Canon to Nikon a couple of years ago.

Do you have any photography goals specific to this year?

Be very good in at least one thing. This applies to both your personal life and photography.

Tell us about your editing process. LR? PS? Both? 

In the majority of my work I use Lightroom. I love it for simplicity which I appreciate in this complicated world ;)
Whenever I need to touch up my work, I finish it in PS. I know there is a lot more to it, but I am happy with what PS is giving me so far.

Thanks again to Monika for being our guest judge this week! Be sure to head over to her page and show her some love and check out her beautiful work! Remember you have until Sunday night to submit your images for the {Every Lucky Day} theme this week. 

xoxo Jen
