Portraits of Joy Photography

Capturing Moments of Joy


Lifestyle sessions outdoors or in the comfort of your home.

How it Works

How it Works

Step 01

Getting to Know You

Before the photoshoot, I'll get to know you and your style. We'll discuss your preferences in terms of location, wardrobe, and any other specific requests you might have. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during the shoot.

Step 02

Capturing Your Joy

During the photoshoot, we'll work together to capture your unique personality and style. I'll provide guidance and direction, but also encourage you to be yourself and have fun. Our goal is to capture the real you and your joyous moments in life and not have a gallery full of picture perfect posed shots (that's just not my style).

Step 03

Editing Your


After the photoshoot, I'll carefully select and edit the best portraits from the session. I'll enhance the colors, contrast, and other elements to make your portraits stand out. I can also retouch any minor imperfections or blemishes you are uncomfortable with to make sure you look your best.

Step 04

Choosing Your Favorites

Once we've edited the portraits, I'll provide you with a selection of the best shots from the session. You'll be able to choose your favorites, download and use at will. You'll have the option to purchase prints and other products as well.

When you invest in Portraits of Joy, you are investing in my ability to capture a moment in time forever. I believe that photographs elicit emotion and memories of a time in your life whether happy or sad. When I get behind my camera, I try to represent the moment or the person exactly as it is in its most beautiful form. I seek those candid moments when people show their genuine selves. And I try to put myself in my clients’ shoes to think about what images they want to have to hold onto forever.

I offer a variety of packages to choose from to fit your needs and I am always willing to work with you to make this decision one that is best for you and your family. My goal is for you to be comfortable during our session and I will go at a pace that fits what your family needs; for husbands and children this can mean taking things slow with frequent breaks and songs. 


With each of my packages I offer, there are a minimum number of photos you will receive, but (as anyone who has shot with me before will tell you) I tend to give quite a few more pictures than the minimum. You will always receive the best of what we capture in our time together. I never limit or get rid of images, so that you can decide which ones showcase you the best.
