Say hello to
I am a mommy to our sweet and adorable children. I am a Pastor's wife- I married my dream guy! I'm a singer, music lover, and theatre lover. I am an artist, a creative- easily inspired. I especially enjoy making things for our children! I am a perfectionist- all about the details. I am passionate about everything I do. I am perky, happy, and easily excitable.
I love singing with Kyle, and listening to our children sing. I enjoy photos of our children- to the point where you could say I'm obsessed! I value eating at the table with our family, story time, and praying with our children. I enjoy Maine vacation, being with my parents, and when my entire family gets together- family time is the best time! I am a lover of fondue- and I think Kyle makes the best! I appreciate a good cup of tea. I am a vegetarian. I like cheese, so much- it's the only thing keeping me from going vegan! I'm kind of a health nut. I am a runner, and enjoy reading about health & fitness. I am spiritual, and enjoy theological conversations and reading devotionals with Kyle. I have an addiction to fonts (proof is on our wedding invitation!) I am inspired by quotes- I have so many favs! I like watching documentaries. I love everything vintage- especially things from the 60's & 70's, and collecting vinyls.
BE Bold. BE Classy. BE Inspired. BE-autiful.
I BELIEVE THAT TIMELESS IMAGES
OF THE ONES WE LOVE
SHOULD BE CAPTURED, TREASURED
and kept forever.
GET TO KNOW JOANNA
My story doesn't begin with how I always wanted to be a photographer. In fact, I had no idea I wanted to be a photographer until I realized how much joy I felt as I was constantly capturing images of our children. As a self described "creative", I had a vision of what I wanted our family portraits to look like. So, I decided it was time to experience another hobby. I wanted to be the creative force behind my own children's portraits.
I am also photo obsessed! If you have ever seen Melissa Joan Hart's "the yearbook girl" character in one of my favorite movies, "Can't Hardly Wait", well, that's totally me! She puts my feelings about photos perfectly, "Pictures are memories frozen in time, people!" When it comes to getting that perfect photo, let's just say, I'm very driven and enthusiastic!
First and foremost, I am a mother and wife- family always comes first! I am passionate about my family, and since I began sharing my love of our children through my photos, people started inquiring about me taking photographs for them. I experience indescribable joy when I capture special moments with our family through photography, and this enthusiasm serves as my motivation to compose the most compelling images for my clients, that they will cherish for a lifetime!
