Testimonials & Accolades


"Working with Joy was a pleasure. I actually had fun having my headshots done. She is very personable and has a great eye for what will look good. She made me feel very relaxed and always made sure to keep an eye on my hair and clothing so nothing was out of place. I am thrilled with my photos and have had tons of compliments on them. She made my eyes pop so much some have asked if I was wearing colored contacts. Thanks Joy. You took the stress out of the whole process."
