Hello gorgeous!

Thanks so much for taking the time to have a look around my website. Now that you're here you are probably hoping to learn more about this girl who could potentially be taking your photo one day, so here it goes...

Well first of all, my name is Joy. Many have said that my parents really nailed it when they named me Joy because I exude just that. If you are looking for someone who is super serious and no fun, you may want to just stop reading now. And of course I love photography, which is likely what has brought you to this very place on the World Wide Web. 

My most favorite thing and goal in photography is capturing real people in real moments. Don't worry I won't expect you to know what to do either, I will be there to guide you every step of the way! Whether that be alongside the love of your life or your beautiful kiddos. The "in-between" moments, where I catch people unaware of my camera are my favorite. Sometimes I still have to pinch myself, because I can hardly believe that people hire me to do something I absolutely love. Don't be surprised with how stoked I get about taking your picture or if I jump up and down when you're totally killing your photo session.

I will do my best to make you laugh!

Personally, I have been married to my best friend on Earth for the past nine years and we have been together since we were seventeen. I can relate to you when you are super excited to be marrying your best friend, because I'm married to mine. I still miss him when he's gone and am a firm believer in enduring love and marriages. I'm also a mother of two little boys who make my life more fun than I could have ever imagined. So if you're looking for a photographer who will do anything to make your kid smile, but will also chat with them about how great Ironman is, I'm your girl! 

I love typical girly things like shopping and Starbucks dates, but I also enjoy being spontaneous and going on adventures and trying new things! If you want me to hike with you up a mountain because the views are incredible, I will be a more than willing participant. And will do my best to try and make you laugh while we are up there, since pictures of people laughing are my favorite. I will be there to fluff your dress, help you pick out your wardrobe, or even just to take a step back and let you get lost in your lovers eyes. After all, these photos are about you and not me anyways. I would love to get to know you more and possibly even take your picture! Feel free to send me a message so we can connect and talk more about what that looks like for you!
