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 colorful, lively, and organic, as I take pride in infusing each shot with genuine emotions and expressions. Downtown Birmingham holds a special place in my heart, and I love using its animated streets and 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.
