Vacation shoots in Cape Town


“Creating breathtaking stories of love, energy, connection and togetherness.”

The Experience

My custom sessions offer you a full service and allow plenty of time to capture a variety of images of you on your own if you’re traveling solo, with your partner, or family, on a stunning beach, or at an iconic location in Cape Town.

We’ll chat beforehand so I know exactly what you are wanting for your memorable time in Cape Town. Full retouching is included.

“I’ve had a deep love of travel for more than 20 years, but many of my adventures have been solo, resulting in there being so few photos of myself in exciting places. When I was in Cuba in 2015, I took a few selfies and didn’t always feel comfortable asking a stranger to photograph me with my camera.  That got me thinking about how much I’d love to be on vacation, AND have beautiful photos to show for it.

So after 15 years in the photography industry, and requests from various clients to capture their unique locations across the globe, I decided to combine my love of photography with my passion for travel.  And ‘The FlipFlop Tree’ was born: vacation sessions in Cape Town, which I’ve now merged with this website.”  Monica Dart

“Monica is an amazing photographer and a lovely person. The quality of her images is outstanding and she delivers according to the deadlines. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience to save a special time and our memories in Cape Town.”

“Monica met us for a family photobshoot when we were on a vacation in Cape Town. She made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and captured the most beautiful and memorable photos of us and our children. She gave us lots of insider tips on lovely places to eat and off the beaten path locations for us to visit. Monica not only created incredible photos, she documented the essence of our family. We will treasure these forever.”
