I'm the owner and creative behind Mika James Amaya Photography. Thank you for wanting to know more about me!

As a fine art organic photographer, I do my best to capture your life's events authentically. I use minimal props and accessories coupled with muted colors and neutral palettes that don't distract from the beautiful details and faces in front of my lens.  As a photographer who specializes in organic fine art style maternity, newborn and family portraiture, I believe in the beauty of simplicity.  My goal is to document your family's story as it unfolds so you'll look back years from now and remember just how incredible those momentous milestones really were. 

My promise is to deliver tangible, genuine, natural and emotion-filled moments in a photograph for you, your children and your family to cherish. Based out of Raleigh, North Carolina I love to travel and have been lucky enough to work with clients near and far. When I'm not behind the camera I love spending time with my husband, my five children and enjoying time outside in nature!  

If you are looking for a photographer in the Raleigh-Durham area, I invite you to take a look around my blog, Facebook, and Instagram, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. You can click on the contact tab above or email me directly at

I am truly honored you are considering me to commission a portrait session and I can’t wait to meet and learn all about you!

As a photographer, mama, and wife, life keeps me busy! Someone once told me that the days go by slowly, but the years go by quickly, which is exactly why I want to preserve all the in-between moments before they are long gone and forgotten.
