Lacey Monroe is an award winning documentary photographer whose work has been shown in galleries across America. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her partner, their two small children, two dogs, and one grouchy cat. When not working on her computer, Lacey can be found enjoying the outdoors (particularly the Oregon coast), trying new restaurants with friends, binge watching TV shows, or snuggled up with a blanket and a good book. She is also a co-founder of Sham of the Perfect, an international collective and online community of documentary family photographers.
