It is all about relationships and emotions here at Monroe Payne Photography.

My blog is a small window into the passionate, crazy and fun filled world I inhabit, and those who choose to invite me into their lives, to capture their "moments". Even head portraits for commercial uses can be "moments" - after all, if my subjects are having a good time when they are photographed, it comes through in the photos, and that good feeling is in turn passed on to your prospective clients.

Here, I will be letting you know about specials, beautiful people who have come in front of my camera, and also art work that makes ME feel good. 

So Welcome! I hope to see you here often!
