"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully."

ROMANS 12:3-8 NIV 

Codi Ann was born in the desert of Arizona, grew up in the southwest Chicago suburbs, and found herself at home in Northern California.


She makes her living primarily as a lifestyle and commercial photographer. She thrives when she's helping a brand or company visually share themselves through any form or medium or when she is capturing a specific product by means of a story.


"Story-telling" is the essence or root of everything she does.

For as long as she can remember, she has always felt that she was here and designed to tell a story, and this fact is usually intertwining throughout her work. While utilizing photography, design and writing, you'll find her piecing together her memoir and testimony. For now, you can sign up for her e-letters here. She shares bits and pieces of what she's been through and what she's currently working on.

Additionally, she has spoken, taught workshops, and shared her story at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Have Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For inquiries, reach out at
