Oh, hello!

We are a Portrait Art Photography Studio for families who love a one-of-a-kind experience and custom art for their homes. 

Taking a modern approach to each session, we blend your family's natural interactions with gentle posing guidance, for portraits that beg to be shown off as custom Wall Art or Albums. 

For families who already have enough discs of images lost to the junk drawer, we invite you to visit Ackland Photography to see how a legacy should really be displayed! (Spoiler alert: it's NOT a digital image!)

Meet Monika

After beginning my journey on other career paths that just didn't feel long-term to me, I threw caution to the wind and established my photography business in 2012 as a full-time studio. I've been fortunate enough to have learned from several extremely talented photographers and industry leaders, shaping the way that I photograph and run a business!

I'm proud to have received several awards, magazine features, and was a judge in Canada's largest photography convention. However, what makes me proudest has been building relationships with clients, who choose to work with me through their engagement, wedding, newborns, and family portraits!

When I'm not photographing clients or designing custom artwork for their homes, I love to play outside with my kids, reading in bed, and date night with my husband!
