Having 4 kids of my own, I know how fleeting these early years are. I love being able to capture these itty bitty newborns so you can have beautiful artwork for your homes to remind you of how little they once were. I love working with different family dynamics to create memories and photos you will treasure for years to come.

I also try to volunteer my photography skills when I get those opportunities. I donate sessions to different organizations and also at my church. I am blessed to be able to invest in decent equipment and classes to further my skills, and I try to “give back” whenever possible.

As far as doing real estate photography, I also sold real estate for a few years. I decided to combine my love of real estate and photography to offer real estate sessions for those wanting to sell properties! Having bought and sold a couple personal homes, I know how important quality photos are for capturing buyers attention, and I love the challenge of showcasing a property’s “good side”.

I’m pretty much an open book, so if you have questions or comments, I’d love to chat with 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!


I am a freelance graphic designer and photo editor. From designing a new logo and marketing materials to editing portraits, I contribute my artistic eye and design skills in a variety of ways at our studio. I mainly focus on editing newborn, milestone, and mini sessions. I live in the Syracuse area with my husband and two young children. Prior to moving to CNY, I worked as an art director on the consumer products creative team at Discovery Communications in the DC metro area. I hold an MS in communications design from Pratt Institute in NYC and a BA from Drew University in NJ. 


I have been a chef for 18 years and have always loved photography.  I came to CNY from Chicago in 2020 to help Monica and Mark with my neices and nephews virtual learning.  I have fallen in love with the area and decided to make it my new home!  My passion for photography started when I was taking photography classes in high school.  I am excited to be a photographer for Monica Browning Photography!  I enjoy anything outdoors, cooking, baking, reading, music, movies and photography in my spare time.
