• Born and raised in Northern California, Monika Elena was surrounded by the warm light that now fills her glowing photos.
  • “ I am in to seeing the world through rose colored glasses, not how it really is."
  • I am not a fan of studios or false light, I want everything to be as real and pure as it can be, there is just so much more magic in that."
  • Her photos stir up emotions, create moods, and are little visual poems .

She received her BA at San Francisco State University.

Monika is currently available in Northern California for shoots, but open to travel.
