Owner of The Roaming Coyote, a rancher's wife and a mama to two little cowgirls! I am located just outside of Fort Stockton, TX and often travel to many surrounding areas. Some of my favorite locations to shoot in Marfa, Marathon and Monahans (holy cow that's a lot of towns starting with the letter M). Additionally, I have a love for Big Bend National Park, Terlingua, Alpine and Lajitas. Although, I'm here in Far West Texas, I am always up to roam to you!

The Roaming Coyote has its name because of my love for travel and adventure. I love to hear your stories and enjoy getting to tell them the way I perceive them through my camera lens. And like how lucky am I to be surrounded by
such beautiful geography! 

You could say that my style is inspired by Far West Texas and tailored to romanticizing those most special moments. My editing style is based on my love for warmth but also an appreciation of true to life colors that look kinda, umm, filmy! 

I am always eager to make you laugh and always up to try new shots. I’d love to adventure with you!

I feel so utterly blessed to get tell the stories of others for a living - it's an amazing thing.

Hey I'm Kiley, a Big Bend BASED photographer, creative and Adventurer.

Accommodating locals and guest to West Texas + beyond. BASED OUT OF FORT STOCKTON, TX - ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF FROM BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK. 

Growing up I was really close with my Aunt (my mom's sister) and had an extremely strong bond with her. In 2014, we found out that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. From that moment forward, I knew that I needed to make every moment count and to take advantage of the time we had together. 

In 2016 we took a road trip to see family in Colorado. Just me and her. It was emotional for me because we were having so much fun yet, I knew the inevitable. Life isn't promised. But there was joy in the knowing that I was soaking it all in - the time that we did have.

I then thought, I just had to have some candid photos of us "running the roads" as she would say. We were always going somewhere and I loved that. Unfortunately, I never got around to scheduling with a photographer and those photos don't exist. It's something that has bothered me since.

After her passing my mom was sorting all of her mail, jewelry and just getting things sorted out when she found a small turquoise pin. That pin is something you will see me not only wearing on my hat, but also on my arm. I digitalized the pin and had it tattooed on my left arm so she's always running the roads with me. 

I believe that it's so special to have relationships like I had with her. I also feel that when you find someone like that, you should really cherish all the moments you are given. My goal as a photographer and what makes this fulfilling to me is to not only bring joy to others but to make sure they always can look back and feel that joy. 

This is my why. 

Joy is my why.

I'd be honored to capture that for you. 

Candidly and authentically.

Behind The Why...


I firmly believe in capturing the actual moments. The story that is natural to you. RAW & REAL

The important moments






Establishing trust and listening to YOUR story is at the top of my priorities. 

Building trust




It's important to get down to the nitty gritty on why these images are important to you. Knowing your story pre-session helps me communicate your story in art form. 

With meaning 








My style is actually capturing all the moments - not the perfect posed images. I'm after emotion and genuine moments, even if that means breaking the "photography" rules.
