Welcome to my blog.

I hope that you enjoy these families as much as I did.
Jameela's baby is due in just a few weeks

Jameela is going to have her baby in a few weeks.  We planned to take the maternity pictures on the beach but the rain poured and the sky turned black. 

I hope we will get to the beach before the baby comes.

Payton is with her big brother.  He is so happy to hold his little sister.   Payton is smiling and interacting with us.  She is so sweet.
Pictures of siblings are very special and it takes a lot of patience to get them.
Payton was born in September and is part of a project to photograph babies from birth to their first birthday and watch them grow up.
Payton's mum is so natural, I love to watch her with her baby.
Jamie was nice enough to allow me to come into her life at a crazy time when she had just had a baby.   Payton was born in the beginning of September.  I did try to catch Jamie before Payton was born but that did not work. 

My plan is to photograph Payton with her family every three months until her first birthday to watch her grow up.  Jamie will eventually put the pictures together to make a collage or a picture frame that includes a picture from each age.

Hey !

First of all, you're in. Welcome to Joanne Family Photographer. and How to Ace Photography.  Both are my photography sites.

When you get to the photo gallery and click on the picture, you will see a down arrow, click on that and the pictures will download to your computer.

If you don’t like the whole download thing and you don’t mind paying for the pictures, you can still order pictures in the normal way.  Just let me know which ones you want along with the size and whether you want digital or prints.  As long as I understand what you want, I will get the pictures to you and collect payment when I deliver them.

In the future, you will get emails from me about anything that I am working on, specials and anything that I can think of that will help you to get better pictures.

If you've got a second, I'd love to get to know you a bit...

...so if you can do just one thing for me today, hit reply to this message and drop a quick note to say "hi". If you have a moment, I'd love for you to tell me two things – 

  1. Have you ever tried to learn how to improve your photography?
  2. If your photography is not all that you want it to be what area would you most like to improve?  In other words, do you have a photography question?

Here is where you can get your pictures

I hope that we gets lots of opportunities to play with pictures together in the near future.   Until then I wish you all the special things that being part of a family can bring and loads of great pictures to remember them by.
