About Me

Thank you for your interest in Monique Dodge Photography located in Orange County, California.

I enjoy creating a fun, relaxing and collaborative photo session. I remember the moment I caught my youngest daughter's genuine smile prompted by the love of her fiance. (photo at top right)  It's that split second reveal that I strive for.  When the mind, heart and soul of a person shows on their face. The 'flicker' that makes someone uniquely them.  It is one of the main reasons why I love photography.

My Personal Life and Fun Antidotes

My husband Mark and I have been married a gazillion years. We have three grown daughters, that are so happy Mom has a photography business, so she'll stop taking pictures of them ALL the time. They still haven't figured out, that's not going to happen..... ;-) ​
Favorite Food: Brownie's

Favorite Romantic Comedy: Sleepless in Seattle

Favorite Song: Beatles Twist and Shout

Favorite thing to do besides photography: Dance, dance, dance!

I'd love to hear from you and discuss what is important to you and meet your photography needs.

Best wishes,


YOU are the U in the Unique perspective!
