I cannot believe that 2016 is almost coming to a close! I feel like time is flying by faster than ever, especially with little ones running around, not seeming so little anymore. It's been an amazing year, though, full of work, vacations, family visits, and school activities. Both of our little girls have transitioned to new schools in the past year and a half and they are doing amazing. Phoebe is in 1st grade and Sybil is in preschool. These two little ladies are truly the driving force of inspiration for me daily. When I am not taking photos of my girls, you can often find us having a dance party in our living room, sewing a new dress up costume, making artwork, hiking and camping, or sipping tea at our favorite cafe. Follow me and my personal and commercial life on IG @joystylesandshoots.
Austin and I have both been busy working in our commercial photography fields on the daily and have kept super busy helping to make sure beautiful imagery makes it to your local retailer and advertisement. And as I continue to pursue both my commercial styling and photography and portrait work, I am finding a need to consolidate my brands for the sake of personal simplification. And so I have decided to continue my work using my name and brand that I have been using commercially for over 13 years now.
Matching Hat Photography will be moving forward as Joy Coakley Weddings and Joy Coakley Families (sites currently being updated and organized). This is the same photography business with the same me! Follow my feeds for @joycoakleyweddings and @joycoakleyfamilies, also on IG.
