My name is Monica and I am the owner and photographer of Graceful Chaos Photography. I live in Grand Blanc, MI but have always been a bit of a nomad. My roots are here now, with a husband, 2 little girls, and my sister whom I have custody of. I have a Bachelors Degree in Theatrical Design and Technology and a Masters of Art degree in Art Administration. Once becoming a mother, my ultimate goal was to be the one to raise my 2 beautiful daughters. Upon becoming a stay at home mom, I felt the urge to continue being creative, so I chose to use photography as an outlet. I've always dabbled in it throughout my adult life, finding it a therapeutic release of stress and anxiety. Building a business from scratch has not been an easy task, but as my namesake states life is nothing but 'Graceful Chaos'. I am also the official photographer for the Mid-Michigan Mom's Blog. During the little bit of spare time I have, I try to  take time to practice mindfulness, and calming techniques to combat my anxiety, depression, and postpartum depression. Beyond the trials and tribulations of being a stay at home mom, battling mental health illnesses and being a business owner, I enjoy traveling, french fries, a cold beer or vodka rocks on occasion and going on adventures both big and small with my husband and family.
