My Name is Joanne, but you can call me Jo! I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself and why I LOVE creating magical portraits.
I was born in Darwin and I live in Palmerston with my husband and my two little boys. One thing I've learnt since becoming a Mum is that they grow oh so fast! Soon my first son will be 3 and it feels like only yesterday that I held him for the first time, so tiny and perfectly shaped to be cradled in my arms. It is so fleeting.
As a photographer, I want to provide beautifully enhanced and quality portraits that will become works of art for your home and treasured for generations to come.
I didn't always know I wanted to be a photographer, in fact, for a long time I wanted to work with animals. I've been a vet nurse, a wildlife carer and a crocodile keeper. However, in the 2012 I moved to Orlando, Florida, USA to work at Walt Disney World. Part of my job was to help CREATE the magic. Oh to spend my days watching the faces of little ones light up because they believed in the magic all around them.. It truly was my happy place! I spent a long time chasing that feeling and love for my job until finally I stumbled upon photography. I pour my heart and soul into my work, creating magical portraits to keep the wonder of childhood alive. I love it so much that I studied a diploma of photography and viola! My new dream job came to fruition!
Now, I honestly couldn't live without photography! I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Those fleeting moments in life deserve to be captured, not just for us as parents but for our children and generations to come. Your family images and images of your children are works of art.
One last word from me, please print. Print and show off those moments with pride and pure love! Don't lose your memories when you lose a usb or a hard drive crashes. Print archival and heirloom images that can be passed on from one generation to the next.
Images, like any family heirloom, are incredibly special and capture a legacy for our loved ones to look back on.
Sessions are fun and enjoyable and children's sessions are heavily play based to capture the true essence of childhood and creating memories behind the image.
Joanne Elizabeth Imagery also specialises in custom session design with bespoke children's sessions that capture the magic of childhood.
