Hi, I am Natalie Cooley

I’m a storyteller, light chaser, momma, wife, candid moment capturerer aficionado ( I think I just made up a word lol) I love to travel, and plan to do much more when my kiddos are a tad older. I am a documentary, natural light and lifestyle photographer based in the town of Jackson, MI. Married to my bestie for 10 years, we have two beautiful sons, Bear & Briggs. I have been photographing things and people for many years, but solidified my status as a bonafide bad ace business owner about 1.5 years ago. I am most passionate, maybe a bit fanatical about capturing real moments, real feelings, true, in the moment, interaction. Whether that is laughing, crying, dancing, singing, loving on each other, hugging, kissing, sleeping (not preferred) I just want you in your natural state, because realness is the bomb. I want you to look back at your photos and say “That is us” “She really captured us.” That is my #1 goal, and biggest compliment I could receive. But don’t worry, I also LOVE to help with styling, makeup suggestions and all that fun stuff too.  I mean everyone wants to look and feel their best, and I.am.here.for.it.all. I’m here to connect with you, be friends with you, and take some great photos of you. Please feel free to reach out. I am pretty much on all social media platforms, and my email will be front and center in the contact section. Hope to work with you, thanks for being here.
