Client Perspective

We are so happy with the beautiful images Joy captured of our newborn and toddler. Joy interacted wonderfully with our children and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We look forward to future sessions with Joy and would highly recommend Joy Photography to anyone – especially families with busy little ones!

We utilized Joy Photography for a family photo shoot at our house. She was absolutely fantastic with our 1-year-old and got him to smile and sit still. The overall experience was great and stress free. The pictures we received as a result of the photo sessions were absolutely perfect and gorgeous! We will definitely be using her again.

Our family uses Joy Photography exclusively because she is so wonderful with our kids – she gets the best out of them and makes our whole family magically become photogenic! We love that she gives us the rights to our photos so that we can use all of the amazing shots and not have to pick and choose between dozens of amazing pictures. She is by far the best value in the twin cities!

Joy Photography has a natural rapport with children that sets them at ease.  We have found that our photographs look so natural and Joy catches each of us at our best. When Joy takes our photos we see a something special in the way her eye captures those moments that we hadn’t noticed before. Joy is like a breath of fresh air that you delight in while she takes your photos and when the sitting is over you can’t believe how sweet the time spent together was.

My husband and I had maternity photos taken by Joy and our experience with her was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! Joy took time before the session to contact us about our hopes and dreams for our photos. Prior to the session, she came up with ideas for different poses and locations to ensure that our hopes and dreams for the session were fulfilled.  The photo session itself was so much fun!!! Joy was so personable, professional and fun to be with! We felt so relaxed and laughed and talked with ease during the time we spent together. As an expecting mom, Joy made sure that I felt very comfortable throughout the photo session, and she skillfully chose poses that made me look and feel beautiful while highlighting the baby that was on the way. She knew exactly how to capture precious memories of my husband, our baby, and I that will be valuable keepsakes forever.
My husband and I were also extremely impressed by how fast we received our edited photos and very pleased that we were given all the rights to the photos so we could print them and share them at our convenience. For such an affordable price, we were delighted to find such dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. We would most definitely highly recommend Joy to anyone! She truly is a joy to work with!

Joy Photography has been capturing our family’s memories for 8 years! The years have brought pregnant bellies, newborns, toddlers, teenagers and everything in between…and each year we are in awe of how perfectly Joy manages to capture it all! Joy’s love for children and zest for life shines through in her work and gives each photo a special touch!

Joy is an absolute “joy” to work with! She not only produces amazing work, but she’s patient and awesome with children. My daughter warmed right up to her. I highly recommend Joy Photography, especially for family sessions.

We have asked Joy to photograph our family several times in the past year. She does an excellent job at capturing our family’s moments and most importantly our daughters’ smiles. Joy has a natural talent with children, and when our toddler daughter said “no” to everything Joy somehow got her smile in all the photos. I have and would recommend Joy Photography to anyone.
