Thank you for stopping by to check out Joy Coakley Studio - Families!

I am a Bay Area based lifestyle portrait photographer, capturing family, newborn + child, maternity, corporate headshots, and high school senior moments. With a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, I have led a very fun and successful career as a commercial photographer and stylist. And for years I have had the pleasure of spending some amazing time with so many families and lovely beings. I enjoy breaking through the shy barriers people have with a camera (I am also allergic to being in front of one!). I enjoy instigating a kiss between partners. I love love love being able to capture the bond between little ones and their families. I love to laugh and have fun and it truly is an honor to get to do that with so many families that end up being life-long friends.

I am based in Alameda, CA, and shoot all around the Bay Area - but always up for travel. Make sure to stop by and check out my commercial work as well as my wedding photography.
