Hello and welcome! I am Monica Janea Pfeifer and I look forward to the opportunity of getting to know you more. Photography is not science but is rather the art of capturing that memorable moment in a way that will help you cherish it forever.
I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Hancock, Wisconsin a small town in the center of the state. Yes I mean, small – to the tune of under 500 people and graduating from a high school where Kindergarten through 12th grade are all in one building! It was here that my passion for photography was only beginning; little did I know I would have moved to the east coast and then to the west cost. Let me highlight a little bit about my journey through photography and the country:
~ Swing! In college I played softball and golf, breaking the school batting average record my senior year.
~ I Do! In 2007 I married the love of my life, Luke.
~ Snap! I photographed my first wedding in Plainfield, Wisconsin in 2006.
~ Who loves waterparks? I do! I have taken numerous marketing photos for the largest indoor waterpark in America, Kalahari Resorts. My portfolio includes photos for menus, posters, and amenity offerings.
~ It all begins! With the encouragement of Luke, I officially started Monica Janea Photography in 2009.
~ A 360 view! In 2009 I added 360 virtual tour and real estate photography to my portfolio.
~ East coast to West coast! Over the course of 6 years my husband and I have lived in 3 states and moved 5 times – might I add we are done moving.
~ Here we are! In 2013 we relocated to the Seattle, Washington area. Since moving to the area I have added a few weddings and Senior Photos to my portfolio.
I hope you have learned a little bit about me and I'm looking forward to learning more about you as well. Please take a look at my portfolio, I hope you like what you see!
