Monika + Trevor

Trevor and I met in 2006 at school (in a program completely unrelated to photography)! In 2009 we welcomed Koen into our lives, got married in 2010, and exactly 10 months later Gwen rounded out our perfect little family!

Then in 2012, with Trevors encouragement, I gave up an unfulfilling legal career to begin on the road of entreprenuership. I had no idea what I was doing! But I learned-- I've made my fair share of mistakes, followed in the footsteps of those who came before me, and worked hard-- and Trevor is always there to hold my hand through it. Our humble beginnings started in the heart of Ontario, and in 2017 we moved to Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador! I'm so excited to serve our new community, though I'm also happy to have the excuse to return to Ontario for our Ackland Couples any chance I get! 

We're a family who loves snuggles in bed on Sunday mornings, heated games of Settlers of Catan (which I lose every single time!), and long road trips to new places (preferably places near the ocean)!

Meet Monika

I started this business in 2012, and I still can't believe that I get to call it my career! I'm the lead photographer and communicator, though Trevor is around to make sure I'm being realistic and to keep me focused (no easy task)! I love epic portraits, amazing photo locations that are off the beaten path, and gorgeous printed art work. In the past 6 years I've photographed hundreds of portraits, received numerous awards and magazine features, been a guest judge for Canada's largest photography convention, and trained with some of the worlds best photographers.

When I step away from work I'm Mom to the best 2 kids on the planet and a Golden Retriever named Remy (who is the biggest baby!). I love going to the gym, which is fortunate because my love of dessert runs just as deep (particularly for creme brulee and pavlova). I'm a notebook and stationery aficionado, a chronic let-my-coffee-go-cold-er, and I always stay up way too late at night reading in bed.

Meet Trevor

Trevor does an amazing job helping me to keep our household in check, and is also an integral part of making sure the business runs smoothly. On top of prepping gear, assisting on location, and running our social media, Trevor is my go-to guy any time I need to bounce ideas around on ways to better serve my clients! He continues to commit to furthering his photography skills by attending annual seminars and conferences by industry leaders, and shooting alongside me every chance he gets! He loves fast-paced wedding days, breathtaking landscapes, and getting the unexpected shot.

During the weekdays Trevor is a Public Affairs Officer with the Air Force. In the evenings he's superdad, able to paint the prettiest toenails and build the coolest paper airplanes. When I need to butter him up I buy him single malt scotch, ice cream, and anything Star Wars. He's also a treasure trove of useless information, so I hate playing Trivial Pursuit with him... unless he's on my team.
