A little about my roots...


This is my first blog post for Monica Niwa Photography. I will tell you a little about myself. When I graduated college some 17 years ago, I graduated with an Elementary Education degree.  I was sure I was going to be a school teacher. I worked for my father during the summers and any time I was off from school. He is the photographer in the family. I was sure I wouldn't follow in his foot-steps... well, here I am. My father, Niwa, is a well-known jewelry photographer. His clients included; Rolex to Cartier to Fortunoff and many more in between, no job was too small or too big. I learned all of my photography skills from my father. He has always been a big part of my life and still is. He has now since retired. I worked for him for 10 years, always learning. I branched out on my own in 2006. Stay tuned for more... Hope you enjoy my post!
