Meet the Photographer

At Miyako Studios, photography is more than just a profession – it's a lifelong passion deeply rooted in the love of capturing beautiful moments and creating portraits that leave a lasting impact. As the owner, I have always believed in the power of friendly coaching and fostering confidence in my craft, ensuring that every client feels at ease and comfortable during their portrait experience.

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a portrait photographer is witnessing the genuine joy on my clients' faces when they look at the images we've created together. My photography style can be described as vibrant, lively, and organic, as I take pride in infusing each shot with authentic emotions and expressions. Downtown Birmingham holds a special place in my heart, and I love using its animated streets and unique backdrops to create stunning portraits that truly stand out. The energy and essence of the city inspire me, and I strive to reflect that in every portrait I take.


When working with clients, I make it a priority to ask questions, show examples, and brainstorm ideas together, ensuring that their vision is fully understood and incorporated into the final portraits. Exceeding expectations in customer satisfaction is always my goal, and I find immense joy in capturing the essence of their dreams and aspirations.

What Clients Are Saying

“Thanks to my best friend for capturing these photos! I've had to cancel my baby shower, go to appointments alone, and worry about this virus. But she came through with my first maternity shoot! Book her when outside opens back up!”
