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 is 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. Other times, you can find her serving coffee at her favorite coffeeshop, practicing her French and writing letters.


"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. 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 some of her stories at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Have Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For inquiries, reach out at codiannthomsen@gmail.com.
