Hi. I’m Joey. I love taking photos.
I come to you with 8 years of professional photography and editing experience. I spent 5 wonderful years photographing weddings, engagements, and portraits. It was a busy and exciting time, filled with great memories. I am a self-taught photographer, and learned my trade through obsessive practice, workshops, and mentorships with other professional photographers. After 5 years, I yearned for a more steady schedule and moved into the world of professional digital image editing. I had the opportunity to work for one of the most advanced fashion photography studios for the next 3 years where my team and I polished a high-volume of images from products to jewelry to models. It was here that I gained great knowledge and expertise on the post-production process.
Currently, as a the mom of a charismatic toddler, I have a newfound appreciation for celebrating our children through photography. Taking pictures just feels so important to me. Milestones, such as birthdays and family portraits, are a really fun way to celebrate the special people in our lives.
I see parents putting a lot of work into planning great celebrations for their kids and their family and friends, and I want to help the parents enjoy the parties themselves by being present to take the photos and document the occasion.
Smart phones are great for taking photos of daily life, but being able to put the phone down and truly engage with your family during a party or a special portrait session is something you will always remember.
I understand you have many choices when it comes to your photography needs, and I am honored that you are here considering me today. I absolutely love what I do, and I would love help you!
