About Cocoa

I'm Cocoa Laney, and I'm a senior at the University of Montevallo. This series is the final project for my commercial photography interdisciplinary degree. After graduating in May of 2016, I will be pursuing a masters in photography at SACI in Florence, Italy.

My favorite thing is telling stories, both through photographs and through my words. I like getting to know people's quirks, and I'm a firm believer that everyone has a little bit of magic in them that makes them who they are. My job as a photographer is to document that.

When I'm not at school, I work as a portrait photographer in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. My blog, Colorful Meanderings, is dedicated to travel photography in Italy and across Europe, along with other personal work.
