About Me


This is Mona's Picturesque!



Hello and welcome. I'm Mona. I live in Helsinki Finland – in picturesque Tapanila neighborhood. I’m 34 years old, a busy working mom with two adorable girls and one beloved husband beside. Just about two years ago I discovered photography and editing… and fell for it fast and hard. I suddenly discovered my creative spirit that I didn't even know to exist.

Now photography is my passion and hobby. My camera is the tool for capturing much overlooked beauty of the everyday life. I adore pink, pastel and poetry. All things sweet. Lightness and love. Daydreaming, rainbows and romance. Flowers clouds, cupcakes…

On my blog I love sharing my images, art and sometimes just a snapshots and random musings - hope you love them as much as I do. Thanks for being here

  2. I am your newest follower and your blog is just beautiful. Your photographs are also very beautiful and I'm so glad that I found you. I'm so happy to know that you are from Finland...that is where my husband's family originated from and I am so interested to learn more of your beautiful country. Our fondest dream has been for years, to be able to travel to Finland to see this beautiful place. We are still hoping to make that dream come true someday soon. Thank you for sharing your lovely photographs. - Kathleen Benttinen -

  3. Hello Mona!
    First I want to tell that I just love your photos. I like the soft look on these photos too. Just wonder...what kind of filter/plug-in do you work with with to have this soft purple, pink, blue look...? Have a beautiful day!

    I used to take photos of my 6 Grandchildren. Such a nice age right to take. Your family is beautiful.

    I adore all your photography.

  8. Hi Mona, I'm visiting by way of your "About Me & About You" linky party. Your family is so beautiful, and the picture of you and your girls in the field of flowers is breathtaking - both in the scene and the connection between you and your daughters. Like you I have come to the passion of photography only over the last few years. I am so happy to have a creative outlet! The soft and dreamy quality of your images is clearly a reflection of you. I love this about photography - that there are infinite styles - one for each of us. So nice to have you as a new friend. I will add you to my Blog List for inspiration.

  9. I just discovered your blog and will be joining you for Floral Love. My interest in photography has grown since started my blog last year. Being a stay at home Mom, photography is my creative outlet, in days filled with cleaning, cooking, and playing with my daughter. I love taking the time to appreciate and photography things that most people would pass by. Your blog is beautiful.
