Story book sessions were born out of my deeper reflection on why I love to photograph families, their connection and their love. We all have a family story, it changes moment by moment, we add to it daily with the little things we do and the moments and love that we share. Sometimes bigger events happen, whether they’re joyful and uplifting, or heart shattering, they have the power to change the course of our stories altogether.

I recently entered the Capture Magazine’s Top Emerging Photographers Competition for 2017 and received a “Highly Commended” award for my Portrait portfolio and a “Commended” award for my Wedding Portfolio. I am so very proud of my achievement. There were over 800 portfolios entered into the awards. My work reached the short list for both categories and my portrait portfolio was included in at least one of the Judge’s top 5 portfolios.

My work has also been featured on the very popular Looks Like Film blog a number of times and was also featured in their 2016 Artists of the year, you can visit that article here.


Hi! I’m Joy, This is me with my gorgeous little Annabelle.I am a family lifestyle portrait photographer from Wollongong, NSW.  I have had a love of art and photography for as long as I can remember, there is nothing else in the world I’d rather do. I also have a wonderful husband and two amazing little kiddos who I love more than anything in the world!! I love photographing them and looking back at how they have grown (it happens way too quick for my liking) and this is how I know how important it is to capture these gorgeous moments for your family.
