Newborn and Baby Photographer in Athy Kildare


My name is Monika and I am the person behind the camera in Monka Photography. 9 years ago I turned my passion into a job and since then I have been photographing babies.

1st Birthday sessions are among my favorites to photograph. I love to create little scenes for the photoshoots where babies can play and have fun while I capture their beautiful smiles.

I’d love to welcome your family in my little studio ♥
