Award-winning photography by Lisa Coker

Lisa Coker is a full time mom and documentary family photographer. She grew up on the island of Oahu, HI and now resides in Sacramento, CA with her husband and four children. Pictures became unexpectedly valuable to her when she lost her father to cancer at the age of 11. It is because of this significant childhood event that she is driven to document moments that matter right now, and will matter 20 years from now. Her work celebrates the reality of family life in all its chaos, stillness, intimacy and humor.
