*I'm often told I look like Milla Jovovich due to similar features.


I'm a young Canadian/Polish freelance model who is very passionate about modelling. I am dedicated, punctual, professional, and I work hard to accomplish what needs to be done. I have experience from modelling in local runway shows and working with various photographers from Canada and the U.S. Additionally, I'm a creative thinker and enjoy collaborating with photographers on various concepts; constantly sharing my input and ideas. I also have previous and current dance experience that expands my performance in ability and grace. I'm open to various opportunities including acting.  I like to take on different challenges when I model; whether it may be a difficult pose, facing the hot/cold weather, or even when I'm feeling under the weather I'm ready to take on that challenge.  I hope to full fill your needs as a model, while having fun and working hard! I enjoy the creativity aspect of the industry, travelling, and being able to adapt to the different styles.  I would like to further my career in modelling, and acquired more knowledge within this industry.

Style I'd Like To Pursue:  Ralph Lauren, Guess, La Senza, Victoria Secret, and Tommy Hilfiger.

"Monica you are a terrific model! I really enjoy our shoots together as you can create that sassy look to a sultry look in the blink of an eye. You come well prepared with great ideas and vast array of outfits where you can generate the look of a sassy school girl to a sultry vamp. You bring that energy to the shoot each time and besides you are so much fun to shoot with. Thanks again Monica for a great shoot and enjoy the rest of the weekend." -Dean (Brass Edge Pin Ups Photography)

Monica, Thanks for coming today. It is always good when our models show up on time and prepared. We really appreciate that. Chris was very impressed with how well you modeled - you had lots of ideas and you didn't need direction all the time. We would love to do more shoots with you." -Terri Lynn (KaspInc Photography)

"Thanks for the great shoot today. You were very well prepared, and organized, and we got through an impressive number of looks despite the cold weather. I look forward to working with you again!"  -Kevin (Photonic Stasis Imaging)

"It was my pleasure working with Monica. She is professional and we had fun on our shoot. I can't wait to get back to my home so i can edit some of our captures.  I would recommend working with her to any photographer. When I travel back to Alberta, I would definitely work with Monica again." -Craig (CSP Photography)

"Hey Monica, thanks again for coming down for the shoot. It was a pleasure to work with you. You were very prompt and professional, you took direction well, and of course you were beautiful."   -James Hildebrandt Photography
