WELCOMEHi there. Thank you for stopping by. Welcome to the Joy Michelle Photography Blog! I am a wedding & portrait photographer living in Maryland available for travel. I love to create and curate all things colorful, meaningful, and in the moment. Photography is my medium of choice, both film and digital. I have a formal background in graphic design and I love being able to use those skills when I design album layout. This blog is a combination of real shoots, thoughts on photography, and inspirations. I can be reached at : email@example.com

Don’t you love those rare few days in November that are 70 degrees?!! They’re even better when I get to enjoy them while I do what I love.

Oh my goodness. Prepare to be blown away by the absolute cuteness of Carter’s lifestyle newborn session.

Todays nautical, maternity session took place in Annapolis at Quiet Waters Park. I had been there a few times before, even to photograph a wedding, but I discovered I have been missing out on the south river overlook all this time- don’t ask me how!! It is just beautiful and has become my new favorite place for portraits.
Marc + Melissa wanted to incorporate some nautical elements into their shoot because their baby’s nursery is nautical themed. They brought along this adorable little sail boat from his nursery which I LOVE.
