ABOUT STUDIO COAKLEY
hi there, i'm
I am a mom of two little girls, Emilia and Giuliana, in Northern California. I see beauty all around me and am inspired by IN BETWEEN MOMENTS and small details in everyday life. I empower women to feel beautiful, confident, feminine, and unique. I enjoy living slowly, seasonally, and artistically. Collaborating with like-minded women to bring concepts to life through photos light me up. Let’s work together to create images that tell your story in the best light and capture your authenticity.

years in business
My husband, Ryan, and I met 12 years ago, we fell in love in Italy and have traveled all over Europe, Bali/Indonesia and Mexico together. We have lived all over California together and enjoy spending time outdoors in Lake Tahoe, Stinson Beach and the American River. We love to garden, hike, go camping, ski/snowboard, cook, and play with our two little girls as much as we can.
I am inspired by photos that make you feel like these were secret moments shared by individuals, with no photographer in sight. I capture small details, hair blowing in the wind, hands holding, leaning heads on each other's shoulders, that glance that a husband gives his wife that she adores, laugh lines, eyes closed, all of these details make images magical to me.
I always look up to women that are carving out their own destiny and living their truest individuality and authenticity. I am a firm believer in we can all manifest a life that is best for us, regardless of societal expectations. I believe the world needs more people who are passionate about their true calling and purpose and living creatively. If this speaks to you, I’d love to collaborate.
Passionate and inspired by motherhood.
