"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.
