- Worked in the fashion industry in New York City before I ever touched a camera
- Moved to Manhattan Beach with my husband to start a family
- Desperately missed NY for years. I still say it’s the worst break up of my life. I’m over it now. Promise.
- From 2007-2009, I Studied photography at Photo Manhattan in New York and Julia Dean School of Photography in Hollywood.
- Had the honor of working with world renowned photographers, Keri Meyers, Caralee Case, Jennifer Nace, and High School Senior photographer Michelle Moore
- I love using my fashion experience to tie in textures, patterns, & colors with my set ups
- I have 3 boys- ages 8, 5, and 3! Woah. Someone please give me some shimmer & shine!
I am a professional photographer based in Manhattan Beach, CA, specializing in fine art newborn and children’s portraiture. I love offering my clients a high end experience from beginning to end. A very private and comfortable studio awaits, where all of yours and baby’s needs are met. You can sit back while I style your child, your session, and your walls. The art created in the Photos By Monika studio will be cherished for a lifetime.
So excited for every photo session. Please contact me if you’re interested!
