My name is Monika Solarz-Gaszcz,
I am Jersey, Channel Islands, St. Helier based photographer. I specialize in custom newborn, maternity and family photography.
I was born and educated in Poland, moving to Jersey in 2007, the island now proudly call my home.
I was formally educated in professional Photography back in the days of film and darkroom. I graduated with my master degree in graphic design and digital art. Shortly after I started work for ceramic factory as member of designer team.
I have had many different careers throughout my life, including teaching children, working as occupational therapist , and creating beautiful paintings.
With decades learning about art and photography behind me I found myself in love with capturing people, especially those little one. I pride myself on professionalism, creativity and having a natural motherly side which helps when soothing and safely handling newborns and babies. I'm constantly learning and educating about different aspects of photography and post processing.
I am wife and mother to 2 most beautiful children; 8 years old son Filip and 4 years old daughter Arya.
My fascination with photographing newly – born children began with the birth of our son. I loved recording each milestone in his life: first smile, first steps and first tears. Capturing the pure joy, incredible love, and happiness we experience . Those moments are precious and disappear all to quickly. This is why it is so important to invest in your future memories, and capture these firsts!
My intention is to create beautiful memories that you and your family can cherish forever.
It is my passion and I feel like I have the best job ever.
Thank you for stopping by!
