I’m Carly, I thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you all about Carly Monahan Photography.

I have always loved photography and love that in one image, I can capture a moment that can be treasured forever.  I remember as a small child, sitting with my parents and grandparents looking through photo albums and boxes of photos of their lives and intently listening to the stories behind them.  Years on and those old photos provide me with so many happy memories and much comfort.   Now, with a family of my own and realising how true it is that babies and children grow all too quickly, I make sure that I regularly have photos of my children and us as a family taken so that we can all enjoy for these times for years to come.  

My children have really been a big influence on my photography style.  I love relaxed, natural, simple scenes and lifestyle photography which reflect you as a family, capturing your love, bonds and uniqueness in locations which mean something to you as a family.

My sessions are led by your family and as such, each session is unique.  Having two children of my own with very different personalities, my aim for each session is to capture your family as naturally as possible whether that be reading a book or playing hide and seek.  I love to capture those beautiful smiles that only really come from pure happiness, not by saying “cheese” to the camera.  And most importantly, I want to present you with a gallery of photos that you’ll love, display around your home and treasure forever.

As well as providing beautiful galleries for families, I am a Photo Sensory photographer for Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense in Chelmsford.  I attended both classes with my own children and loved the space it gave us to grow together.  Now I love going into the classes to photograph the children having fun whilst exploring and engaging in new activities, its wonderful capturing the excitement and wonder in their faces.  I’m also lucky to be able to capture family photographs as their special events throughout the year.

For your reassurance, as its really important to feel you can trust your family photographer, I am also fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS (previously called CRB) check.
