Her Story

Montse Alvarado

Photographer - Owner Beautiful Images by Montserrat

Montse's Story :

My name is Maria del Montserrat Alvarado Navarro.

My name represents the best I could have received from my parents.

Maria is my spiritual name, and my name means ” *Inside a Hill”  in a dialect from a place called Catalonia in Spain.

Alvarado is my Dad’s side of the family – Intelligent, artistic, practical.

Navarro is my Mom’s side of the family – Funny, caring, united.

My whole life has been filled with blessings.   Beginning with my 2 natural children and my 3 step children and their dad Harry, my soul mate and twin soul… but I moving ahead too fast… let me start from the begin…. in Mexico.

I grew up in the city.  I took on the best of each family as if in preparation for what will await for me once I found on my own.

I arrived in Canada in 1990 with a husband and a 5 year old child.

It was exciting and scary to be here in a beautiful place with my family but basically all on my own.

The marriage failed 5 years in this country but I was taken… there was no going back.

I carried on and worked for a couple of Chambers of Commerce which opened my eyes to the beauty of our locality.

After a few year life took me in a completely different direction with my husband’s company Blades of Glory.   We worked hard to make this a wonderful educational and entertainment company and then…. photography became a magnet.

It all started with us hiring a photographer who took some great pictures but they did not represented who we were… so I decided to take the pictures myself…

Fast forward I have my very own business and he is now my partner and companion.

We each has their own interest but yet we both are an integral part of each other’s interest.

He is a fantastic photographer that loves to wear armour

I am a damsel that loves taking pictures and together we bring the best of each other

I love what I see… I love that I can capture it and I love my name, so it was only natural that my favourite words would be BEAUTIFUL IMAGES & MONTSERRAT
