The Artist Behind the Lens
I'm Monique, but most people call me Moe! I developed a love for the camera back in High School while enrolled in yearbook class. I remember some of my most memorable moments during my Senior Year being the times that I would walk around campus and snap photos of the everyday happenings at my school. I'd always feel so proud when I captured a moment that I thought was dope!
Although my love for photography began in High School, it wasn't until 10 years after graduating that I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my passion. I thought about it over the years, but I always convinced myself to go another route. As a single mother and a go-getter, I wanted to start a business doing something I truly loved to help support my family. Although I had a masters degree in Social Work and was working full-time in my field, I finally felt it was time to do what I truly love, so I purchased my first camera in 2019 and spent a few months learning the ins and outs of my camera and photography as a whole. Finally, I booked my first photo shoot and never looked back!
I am constantly evolving as an artist and I look forward to sharing my passion with the world!
Why Love 3:16?
The Inspiration Behind the Name
Initially, most would think that the name Love 3:16 was inspired by the famous Bible Verse John 3:16 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life...' For those who believe that, you're not entirely incorrect, however, there is another very important aspect of my life that inspired me to choose the name Love 3:16...My Children!
Fun Fact! I'm a mother of 3 beautiful beings who were all born on the 16th!
Starting my photography business, I knew that I wanted it to be centered around love, so after long deliberation, I decided to name it after the two purest forms of love in my life...God's unconditional love and the unconditional love from my children...my 3-16's!
