I am a people person, who loves to capture the essence of those I work with. I believe that portraits should celebrate personality and bring joy into your home. For over a decade I’ve worked with hundreds of individuals and families and every time has been a wonderful experience. If you want portraits of yourself and the people you love, I offer several options to suit your needs.

How do I book your services?
Please fill out my short contact form and I will get right back to you with all the information you need to secure your session.

Do you have any advice about what to wear?
Yes, clothing you are comfortable in that fits your personality! After you book your session I will send you my styling guide and help answer any questions about outfits for your portraits.

If you’re getting your photos taken with your partner or family, having the same tones without matching the colors is ideal. Think shades of white and cream, pastels, elementary colors or jewel tones to coordinate and consider bringing a sweater, hat, scarf or other accessories to bring in some fashion flair and pops of color.

Do you work in-studio?
I do headshots and boudoir photography in my light-filled studio and family photos are photographed on location.

Do you have ideas for locations with great natural backdrops?
Absolutely! Just tell me a little about who you are and what you love and we’ll come up with the ideal place for your portraits.

When will we receive our photos?
Usually about 3 weeks after your session.

"Joanna was an absolute treasure to work with for my wedding, and is someone I admire as an incredible person! On my wedding day, Joanna made my fiance, family, and bridal party so relaxed and comfortable while getting their photos taken.

"Joanna is a pro and a pleasure to work with. She made us feel like models. The pictures she took are stunning. She offered some great planning tips, and most importantly, she was really fun to hang out with. As a groom who consistently looks awkward in pictures, she figured out to put me at ease and make my wife and I look amazing. I cannot recommend Joanna enough."
