Monika Colichio is the artistic soul behind MColichio Photography, based in NE Florida where she lives with her kiddos and husband. She believes that our past not only shapes us, but it also gives us a unique perspective as artists. When we capture another life, we add a beautiful flare to their story. We don’t only look through the lens. Born with hands to build and create, from wedding invitations to hand-crafted furniture, she found her passion for photography soon after her first child was born. She’s deeply in love with natural light, fine art portraiture, authentic emotional photography of children, maternity, people and life. She is looking to capture raw details and soul through photography and the prism of her past.
I’ve long admired Monika’s work. It has so much soul. I was so excited for her when I heard she had a breakout being released, and couldn’t wait to get a peek inside her creative mind. Much like her photography, she has poured herself into this breakout. She opens up about her life experiences, sharing how they have influenced her voice as a photographer, and encourages the reader to do some introspective work of his or her own to understand what it is that moves us when we shoot. You will walk away from this breakout empowered and inspired to shoot authentically. Monika shares a wealth of tips, both techinical and creative to help you bring more emotion to your work. If you are in business, there are tips for you. If you are a parent, you will connect with Monika’s passion for photographing her kids. No matter the level of experience, this breakout has something for everyone. Unknown on 12th May 2017
I love this breakout! Monika is such a true talent and she doesn’t hold anything back in this breakout! With its beautifully written, visually friendly PDF, and detailed editing videos, this breakout is jam-packed with amazing information. Monika’s thoughtful and emotive approach to her work is beautifully expressed page after page as she walks you through every aspect of a session, starting with the moment of initial client contact. It is evident in her stunning work that Monika has a gift for seeing the light, and she shares her vision and her secrets page after page. Monika’s Breakout is a must for every photographer looking to dive a little deeper with their work. You will want to devour this Breakout in one session, and you will come out the other side prepared and ready to inject your images and your art with a renewed sense of emotion and significance.

and there is so much great info that I am biting it off in small pieces to take it all in. First of all, the images are absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring, but the info is very in-depth and helpful. By far, the most amazing aspect of this breakout is the way that it has challenged me in a way no one else has challenged me to look at what I personally bring to the work. Whether it is photos for me of my family, or what my life experiences bring into sessions for others, this has been an invaluable gift. I have truly been looking at photography in a whole new “light” because of Monika’s breakout. So worth it! Gina Graham on 31st Jul 2016
Monika’s images are so emotive and deep. I was brought to tears as I read Monika’s backstory at the beginning of her breakout because not only are her images authentic and real, but she is as well. She encourages you to dig deep, and reflect on our pasts and my hope is that I will be able to bring a part of my past into my work to help further create more emotive photographs of both my family and future clients. The opening quote of Monika’s breakout by Pablo Picasso was just perfect and honestly lays the foundation of what this breakout is about. The quote says “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” Monika has poured her heart and soul into this breakout and it just radiates through her images and the content of the text of the pdfs.

It truly makes you think about yourself and analyze your past in a way that I wasn’t expecting. Throughout the pdf, the words jump off the print and speak to you in a way that is so tangible. Mcolicho opens herself and you can feel the rawness as she describes her childhood and past. The breakout teaches you ways to use your past and emotions to look at light and bring life to the way you photograph. One of the most thorough and informative pieces I have taken. THE EDITING videos show how she edits and puts everything together. When your heart fills with emotion you know something has impacted you. Char on 31st Jul 2016
