Joyful Memories Blog

I love late nights, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dream clients like when it comes to going on an adventure. If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a friend  in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you.

A couple of years ago I started making Inspiration Quotes from my business account and would share them on my personal Instagram, but also share them on Facebook!  I am more than honored if you wanted to share them for others.  I think we all need to share some positive quotes or funny sayings!  

When I started back with Joyful Memories Photography a couple of years ago and decided that I am going to go for it and stick with it, even if I get insecure or no one books me.  Previous years when I started my business, I would feel like a failure if I offered a session […]

I hate to even write this because I felt like I just wrote the blog on NOT having a retainer fee!  The truth is I didn’t want people to go out of their way to pay me an amount and I wanted to make it easy. In reality, I have came across situations where a […]

Joyful Memories Photography loves the fact that we don’t have you put down a retainer fee or pay for a percentage of your session before hand to secure your spot (unless wedding packages).  We make sure your time and money is important because we know what its like to invest in something and take time […]

One thing that I wanted to be different than alot of photographers is my turnaround with the pictures after a photo shoot!  I know some do 2-4 weeks or longer if its a wedding.  I totally understand if a photographer has alot of sessions and trying to get them out to everyone in a short […]

Its true, I got my dream lens.  I have waited over a year to get it.  Even though I wanted to get the f/1.4, I got the f/1.8, which is a triple amount in savings.  It is mostly for portraits, which I do most in my business.  I can’t wait to share with you all […]

Last year when I finally buckled down and wanted my business to go somewhere, I had to figure out exactly what I wanted and how I wanted to represent myself to the public.  Its more than picking out your name, but its finding the style you want that best represents you.  Mine came down to […]
