About me

For starters, I have an odd name . . .

Here’s how you pronounce it: (kō-LIN MAK-in-inch) -"Coe" works just fine :)

I am an artist and professional photographer. I live in Massachusetts with my Wife and two cats. I have a B.S. in Communications Media/Photography from Fitchburg State University and an MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley University College of Art and Design. The non-commercial side of my work can be found here: www.coe-art.com

My Style

Portraits– I prefer to be as natural as possible and let the subject lead the creative process. I don’t charge by location, just by time. All portrait sessions are a collaborative experience where you are given time to work with any way you choose.

Baby Sessions It’s all about the baby; you have 2 hours to play! I usually start sessions around 10 am to give the baby (and the parents) a little nap time in the middle if needed. I find that every child has their own personality so I prefer to let them be curious and playful rather than posed and formal. Wardrobe changes are highly encouraged. Props are welcome, both funny and sentimental.

Weddings All weddings will have 2 photographers so we don’t miss anything! I am more than willing to create all the cool images you see on Pinterest if like but my personal style leans toward photojournalistic and candid moments. I try to photograph as many details as possible. Even if they don’t go in your album, you’ll have them to show off to your friends!

Food / restaurant photography - I don't have a restaurant portfolio online here but I love food and I love to photograph it so, give me a buzz. - Check out the "Chocolate" section to see my food photo abilities.
