Last year when Monique contacted me for updated head shots I was soooo nervous! With a platform of 30K plus followers on IG, I felt I needed to stretch myself in a way I hadn't before. Well, that was last year, and here we are again! Monique travels the 4 hour drive from Houston JUST to have me capture her and I really enjoy her energy. She is a complete natural in front of the camera!

Monique is a New Orleans native and the founder of the New Orleans Natural Hair Expo, held the same weekend as Essence Fest in New Orleans. This marks the 3rd Annual New Orleans Natural Hair Expo & will be held July 2, 2016, from 10-4 pm at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans.  On July 3, 2015, the expo will close-out with an exclusive brunch, from 11-2 pm at Tujaques' Restaurant.  The New Orleans Natural Hair Expo will feature workshops, product demonstrations, a blogger panel, vendor suites, vendor mall, professional DJ, catered refreshments, and a cash bar. The goal of NONHE is to offer a fun and sophisticated social environment that celebrates and promotes the natural hair community and culture.
