Photography has always been a hobby of mine, and in 2018, I turned my hobby into my business!  I have a bachelor’s degree in business management and find it very rewarding to be able to own a small business in an area of the country I absolutely love.

My husband and I have lived all over the country (and in Italy) due to his career as an F-16 pilot, and having to pick up and move every few years for over 10 years has made us very thankful that are able to live in CNY and grow deeper roots.  We have 4 biological kids, in addition to fostering refugee minors and hosting exchange students.  We also have 2 Golden Retrievers, 2 cats and a huge Flemish Giant rabbit.  No, my house is never clean nor quiet, but I love our active and chaotic family.

In my (very little) free time, I love to explore CNY and the northeast with my family, travel whenever possible, quilt or crochet and read – when I can keep my eyes open!

I love giving back to my community and serve on my neighborhood HOA, along with helping at my kids schools when my schedule allows.  My favorite part of this job is all of the amazing people I get to meet and work with and I can’t wait to meet you!

Interiors and real estate planning is my true passion in life. My career path started at Cazenovia College pursuing my BFA in architectural interior design. It continues today working at a large real estate company doing space planning and design for corporate interiors. Getting an opportunity to be involved with Monica Browning Photography editing real estate pictures was something I had always felt a calling for being in this industry. Also helping to empower the team to enable the local housing market to thrive provides me with enormous gratification. On a more personal level, I also have a love of nature which is why I relocated here six years ago from CT. During my free time, you will more than likely find me spending time outside hiking, kayaking, swimming in a lake, riding my bicycle, or camping whenever possible. And my all-time favorite thing?….searching for four-leaf clovers. I see them literally EVERYWHERE!
