Today we’d like to introduce you to Monique Shackleford.
Hi Monique, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’ve always loved capturing moments, my favorite gift as a child was my Polaroid camera. As I got older, I pursued a career in photography. I loved capturing moments for others and this is how I started out. I soon became a mom and I loved taking photos of my children as they grew before my eyes. My 3rd pregnancy was different. It was difficult and I almost lost my baby girl. She was born with rare disorder called Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. She required 24/7 care at home and I wasn’t able to dedicate the time needed to run a photography business. Since Khloe’s medical bills were extensive but I still needed to be home to care for her I started researching photo booths. I loved the fact that my clients would be able to immediately get the photo in their hands, just like I did when I got my first polaroid camera. From there, my business only grew.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Everything started off smooth, then covid hit. Baltimore shut down and most of my client’s events were canceled or postponed. That was definitely something we did not plan for.
