Behind Lens

I am a Portuguese girl who found love in America. I am a mother of two amazing children who make me proud every day. I am a follower of Christ. I love to travel, I love coffee, I love to sing and I love a good laugh. I treasure my friendships and my family the most. I see the world as a photographer and I am always trying to find new ways to turn my photos into art. I have always loved photography therefore my camera is unfailingly in tow.  A passion of mine is to find the best lighting, locations and to shoot precious candid family interactions. I would love to capture your moments and help create memories that you will forever treasure.
Your photographer,

Monica Pereira-Allen
