Cheesy photos have no place here - instead, I cherish images that are overflowing with light and heart, and that will be even more loved years from now than they are the day we make them.
I want to photograph who your family really is. Of course I’ll get those poses when you are all looking at me smiling, but those images that will be treasured for years to come are the ones when you aren’t looking at the camera. When you are looking at the family you’ve created and soaking it all in.
Personally, I love those photos when the mom, dad, and kiddos are snuggling with one another and laughing. I love those portraits when the mom is whispering how much she loves her little baby to get those genuine smiles. I love when the dads are throwing their child up in the air to get those deep belly laughs and giggles.
Let me capture these emotions; the real connections and feelings that are in motherhood and raising a family. That’s what I want to do for you - to photograph the best part of your life.
your best life
Motherhood is messy, yet beautiful. Let’s document those moments when you’re reminded what being a mother is all about.

ALL THE DETAILS FOR YOUR PORTRAIT SESSION
“Lexie is the best! All of my favorite family pictures are from her. She came and did newborn pictures in our nursery, which are so special to me. And our Christmas pictures still get so many compliments. She’s great with my kids, and can always get them to smile. The photo sessions are short and to the point, which is great with a 1 and 4 year old. And the turn around on the images is so fast. We love Lexie and will do all of our pictures with her!”
MEGAN, MOM OF 2
“Our family had the absolute best experience with Lexie Moneta Photography. Lexie is extremely kind and patient and immediately puts you at ease. We received our photos quickly and the quality was exceptional. This was our first session with LMP, but we will definitely be back for more!”
KATIE, MOM OF 2
“Our family has done two sessions with Lexie this past year and we only have positive things to say about her and our experience. We have a 10 month old daughter so taking photos can sometimes be a challenge. But Lexie is so patient and we've never felt rushed when our daughter wasn't "cooperating" ha ha. She is great with babies and knows all the tips and tricks on how to get amazing photos with little ones. Lexie has a kind, fun-loving spirit and she makes us feel so comfortable every time we're with her. We can't wait to take family photos with her this coming May!”
LAUREN, MOM OF 1
"I came across LMP on Facebook, she recently had taken photos of my good friend and her family. All I thought was how stunning and intimate her photos were AND she has to take my family's photos!! I was beyond happy with how our beach session turned out, my kids are not fans of taking lots of photos (honestly no kid likes it). But Lexie made it so much fun for them. Till this day my kids ask when Lexie will be taking our pictures again. If you are looking for a patient, kind, and talented photographer LMP is it!!"
