"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." ~Forrest Gump~
Hello! I am Mamiko. I was raised in an ordinary family in old downtown Tokyo Japan. When I was young, I never imagined I would move to a foreign country. Luckily, I had chance to study sociology at Willamette University in Salem Oregon. After graduation I worked back in Tokyo for a couple years, then came back to Portland. I always loved photography especially while traveling around the world, but I didn't have a chance to focus on it until my kids grew up. Since I had my first son, I have been obsessed with photography and now I am capturing someone's special moments.
"Miracles happen every day. Some people don't think so, but they do." ~Forrest Gump~
I believe that every day is miracle- even though you don't realize it! I would love to capture the miracle moments of your life through my viewfinder.
