Presenting images with personality

Your subjects look so natural? Were you just lucky and caught the moment or was there more to it?

A truly talented photographer can get even the stiffest subjects to loosen up for the camera. If there ever was a time to pick an experienced photographer over a lesser one, this is it. When it comes to photography, experience and the ability to bring out the best in people is proportional to the quality of the relationship and the product. I spend a lot of time with you before your event and I become “your best friend.” I also spend a lot of time studying new techniques, knowing how to turn crises and meltdowns onto opportunities, and ways to engage my subjects to get that smile and spark everyone wants to see in his or her photos. This photographer has spent decades combining those talents and more to offer you outstanding images and great service.

Joan photographed my family of 6 as a special birthday gift from my husband. Which to some people might be a normal occurrence but to some of my family, photographs are a thing to avoid at all costs. Joan made the entire process painless and fun. She was able to charm and relax my granddaughter (among others) in about 1 minute. Joan is a lot of fun and took the time to think about locations and poses that best suited our personalities. Because of that we have some very natural portraits (especially the one in the tree) that I will treasure forever. Thanks so much Joanie, Joanie!!
