Mily Cooper Photography

Subtitle

My name is Mily Cooper ...

I am the mother of 2 beautiful and rambunctious kids and the wife of a a super sweet guy who happens to be a rocket scientist, no kidding :-)


I love to travel. My travels have taken me to a lot of incredible places all over the world and I have met wonderful people along the way. My dream is to do the same with my kids and see those places through their eyes. And yes, you guessed, take much better pictures the second time around :-)


Maybe because I was born in Peru, most of my childhood I wanted to be an archaeologist and live the life of my biggest hero, Indiana Jones. 


The closest I've got to that experience, was when I went backpacking through Asia and visited some incredible temples in Cambodia, back in 2001, when there were no tourists yet. I had the most incredible sites all to myself... all I could hear was really loud insects. A real thrill that's ingrained in my memory. 


But that was me back then.... Now, my family is my life. Though I enjoy big adventures, I also believe in living the moment and enjoying little adventures every single day. 


Saying "I love you" just because... 


I left my software engineering career of 20 years to do what I love the most,  being a full time photographer. I feel on top of the world for having taken such a bold move. I am so happy and so blessed for it. 


I've loved taking pictures longer than I can remember. My camera came in handy in all my travels. I discovered that more than photographing places, I enjoyed photographing people.  I would talk to strangers and then take their pictures... It is through my camera that I learned to find beauty in all people, beyond common stereotypes. A magical and enlightening process...


My personal style in photography aims to capture one's true nature and personality. I love capturing people doing the things they love. I want to tell their story, their dreams, capture their inner beauty through my lens... And when I achieve it, it's pure bliss...


What inspires me?  Laughter, color, nature, families showing their love for each other, children's giggles, innocence, joy... 


My story... I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a traveler, an adventure seeker, an artist, a photographer, an engineer, a story teller, an optimist (for sure), a perfectionist, a best friend, a dreamer, a coffee lover... 

And now an entrepreneur... Glad to add that one to the list!


But enough about me... I really want to hear all about you.... I want to capture YOUR STORY ...
