About Top


Let me take a minute to introduce myself...

I am Vanessa Cote, and if it wasn't already super obvious, I am the owner and photographer behind

Vanessa Cote Photography! 

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.

The people who have given me those titles, are my biggest support system. I have the most wonderful cheerleaders in my corner and I wouldn't be where I am today without them.

I grew up in Canada, in the beautiful province of Alberta.

My family moved from there to Virginia, where I later met my husband, and where we had our first daughter. We moved from Virginia to Florida, had another daughter, moved back to Virginia and had two more girls! ...that's four girls if you weren't keeping track. 

We lived briefly in Arkansas before finally landing in Colorado, where we are currently...and where we love living!

When I'm not chasing after the light with my camera, you can find me hiking in the mountains, reading a book, playing games with the fam, or sitting on a friend's patio - or couch, depending on the weather - enjoying a good drink. 

As a family, we like to go on walks, binge all things Marvel,

create art, tell dumb jokes and just hangout. 

Things I love and that bring me joy: 

Coffee & tea

Don't make me choose, I can love them both!


Old ones for the aesthetic; new ones for their smell.


I used to be a plant killer, now I'm a thriving plant mama.


Give me all the wildflowers, actually, give me any flower!


Nature is my therapy.

Working out

Also my therapy...did you read I have four girls?!

Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Keep that live action junk version away from me.
