If this is your first time visiting my blog or your 100th time I just want to say WELCOME and thank you, thank you, thank you!
My name is Monique Curry. Yep it's true. It is not just the name of this fabulous blog site. Yes, you can read some of this on my About Me page but as part of a challenge in a recent course I have enrolled in, I agreed to blog the course selected topic for 7 days straight. Starting today!
Don't worry after this week it will go back to normal :)
So here goes...
Who are you?
I am a professional photographer living in Kiel, Wisconsin with my 3 crazy children and my husband. I live to capture the everyday life of my family and strive to bring joy to others through my work. I absolutely love the daily craziness of my family. In my fantasy life I wish I could just blink and take a picture. There are so many times I don't have a camera of any kind and want to be able to remember the moment. I love all things creative and crafty. Given the opportunity I will always choose something refurbished and fancied up just the way I like vs something new.
My guilty pleasures in life right now are cruising Pinterest and enjoying a quiet hour after the kids go to bed to brush up on something business related, because let's be real when else am I going to do it!
I love a good 100 degree day at the beach and enjoying a little cocktail in my backyard at sunset in the summer.
Why did you start blogging?
Simple. I wanted to showcase my work and connect with people. As someone who works at home I find it gets a little lonely not being able to connect with other adults. I like that my blog gives me the opportunity to do that. Now if I could find a way to do it more often.
Who is your blog for?
My blog is for anyone who loves the idea of the American dream. It is for people who are inspired by images of family. Or heck maybe cause you need a new recipe!
What’s something you've been working on lately that you’re REALLY proud of?
I have been working tirelessly on growing my business and my brand. I am really proud of the fact that each year I am blessed to be able to photograph some of the same families while adding new ones to the group. I am so thankful clients see the value in the memories I capture for them, especially in a world where smartphone photos dominate our photo collections. When a client chooses me year after year for their professional photography needs I am truly humbled.
What’s the ONE MESSAGE that you hope people take away from your blog?
Only one message? That's a hard one. I guess I would have to say that I hope my blog makes people feel connected. I hope that through my images you are inspired to capture your own family whether that be through professional services or a smartphone. "There is a saying the best camera is the one you have with you."
Oh do I live and breathe that statement.
Through blogging I hope to reveal my personality and my work to you! You will get to see what we at the Curry house are up to! I want to feel like we are friends. I want to know all about what you guys are up to and look forward to reading your comments.
Thank you so much for visiting!
