Hello and welcome – so glad that you’re here! I’m Monica, a former researcher, with a masters degree in public health – turned writer, photographer, and freelance creative. New York City has been home for over 17 years where I live with my husband, nine-year-old son and eleven-year-old daughter.
Marino Bambinos began in 2010 on a whim, with intentions of documenting and sharing glimpses of the everyday with family and close friends. Over nine years later, this family lifestyle blog continues to be my work (still true to its creative lifestyle origins) through the creation of original content features, photography, event coverage, ambassadorships and more.
Photo by @marinobambinos You never know what you’re going to get when you take a photo in the ocean, but Queens, New York-based writer Monica Marino (@marinobambinos) was pleased with this one. “My daughter was having a blast catching waves, and I went out during golden hour to see if I could capture a memory of a pretty ordinary — but extraordinary — evening at the beach together,” she says. 🌊 Follow along to see more of our favorites from last weekend’s hashtag project, #WHPadventure.
A few of my photos are also currently on display in the lobby of Instagram’s New York Headquarters:
I care deeply about my partnership on a video series with Amnesty International. Other highlights include contributing to CLIF Bar & Company’s CLIF Kid; attending Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move event at the White House; representing Kohl’s on the Red Carpet at the American Music Awards; several family travel features including trips with Disney World and Disney Cruise Line – along with so much more.
I’m grateful for the creativity in this work – as well as the opportunities to help others engage their audiences through thoughtful partnerships. Paid collaborations are credited as such and opinions expressed herein are always authentically my own.
Here you’ll find stories of motherhood, family travel, women and children’s health, DIY tutorials, social good, style, design, beauty – our favorite things and so much more.
