I am very excited about todays post, for many reasons!

First, I would like to introduce you to the world that is of Monika Elena! Monika is one of these photographers you wish lived closed by so she could capture your kids and your daily life in a dreamy and poetic way. She is a talented photographer who uses light in such a powerful and captivating way. She is the photographer you want to hire for your editorial photo-shoots. She captures the little details with great attention. She makes the mundane extraordinary.

I've been a fan for a long time now. I've written about my love for her here and she has inspired me to put this together. You've probably seen her work in Papier Mache, La Petite, Babiekins, Milk, Naif and many more amazing magazines. Or perhaps you've seen her fashion editorials campaigns for Noro Paris, Fournier, Fafa, Nixie Clothing... just to name a few.

Did you know Monika Elena also takes beautiful family photos- I didn't until recently!

I really do love her polaroid series too.

What can I say, I am a huge fan! So when Monika contacted me to see if I would be interested in collaborating with her, how could I refuse! Here is the thing, after living abroad for a few years Monika is finally back home in California, San Francisco to be more precise and today she is offering YOU my readers the opportunity to win a family photo session. Say what? I know crazy right! So if you live between Sacramento  and San Francisco or perhaps you are willing to travel to this area- then this G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y is for you!!! I have to say I am super jealous, that's an understatement.
