“a thing that you’ll see in my pictures is that i was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”

hey there!

Welcome to my website I am so happy you’re here! My name is Koiya. I am inspired by light and love + based out of the beautiful mitten state. My photography approach can be explained as lifestyle mixed with a little bit of photojournalism. I focus on photographing moments that show true emotion and personality. Your story matters to me and I love capturing all of life's little moments to look back on. If you’re looking for a photographer that has you saying “'cheese” the whole time and looking straight into the camera, I am probably not your girl! I strive for my sessions to be un-posed, organic, timeless and playful. This means your hair might get messed up + your cheeks will hurt from laughing so much and your kids can actually play and have fun! During our session I will encourage you to play with your kids and laugh with your significant other. I crave capturing real moments that are truly timeless. My goal is to capture those candid moments in between the laughs, smiles and cuddles. I work hard to make sure every one feels comfortable and relaxed. If you love pretty details, hand holding, messy hair, golden light, tickles and cuddles, we will be a great match and I would absolutely love to work with you! I am obsessed with natural light and during a session with me you can expect to have fun and definitely laugh... a lot! Feel free to browse around my website and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! You can say hey on my contact page, and we can make plans for a phone date or we can make plans to meet for coffee... because, well, I love coffee!
