MY STORY

Capturing exquisite moments, telling their stories that's the mission of Purelyjoyous Photography.  I’ve always loved photography. Yet, it wasn’t until 2008 when I began to travel internationally for work that decided to bring my Nikon D700. I was amazed when I returned home with the images to experience the magic I captured through my lens. My passion for photography was launched on the streets of Madrid, Rome, Amsterdam and Istanbul. The moments of beauty and wonder I lived were there in my images to share and experience over and over again.

While travel photography captivated me for several years, wedding and family photography snuck in and stole my heart.   Annie Leibovitz may have described best how I feel when she stated,  “A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”    

Photography is an immensely personal art form.  With all the choices there are of talented photographers with their unique styles, I am honored when my clients allow me the privilege to share in their intimate moments.  

Swimming deeply in God’s grace, I believe my purpose with my talent is simple. Share love, one image at a time.

Whether the event is filled with smiles or peppered with tiny tears, my vision is to capture the beauty in the simple moments, freeze them in time to enjoy always.
The unnoticed moments, the simplicity in their elegance may be among the most beautiful. The truth whispering through, it matters to me. Capturing these moments and experiencing my clients seeing the images, loving the beauty of the instant we captured even more than I do - that’s what I love most about what I do.

I’m Joy. So glad you’re here.

ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE

At Purelyjoyous Photography we like to say, “we don’t take the photographs, we thoughtfully ask to borrow them; and, give them back as moments frozen in time and filled with love.”
