Get to knOw me, your newborn & Family Photographer

i there! I'm Joanna, a newborn photographer passionate about capturing the wonder and beauty of childhood, especially those fleeting newborn moments.

Hey, I'm Joanna!

Family is at the heart of everything I do. For the past 20 years, I've been  married to my husband, Corey, where me met in college. Our two amazing teenagers, Luca and Olivia, keep us on our toes with their busy schedules filled with sports, school activities, and a social life that puts mine to shame (in the best way possible!).

When we're not cheering them on from the sidelines, we love spending quality time together at our lake house. Boat rides, tubing adventures, paddle boarding – we enjoy soaking up the sunshine and creating lasting memories with loved ones. Socializing with friends and family barbecues are a staple, especially considering my Italian heritage (both my parents hail from Sicily!). Family is everything to me, and that sense of connection spills over into my work.

Traveling the world has always been a passion, though with newborns arriving on their own timeframes, it can be a bit of an adventure! Exploring new cultures and indulging in delicious cuisine is a highlight whenever the opportunity arises. Speaking of food, while I may come from an Italian background, coffee isn't my thing. But an ice-cold Coca-Cola hits the spot every time! For a sweet treat, Jenny's ice cream is my go-to indulgence, and a relaxing spa day is pure bliss.

A five-year breast cancer survivor, I am incredibly grateful for each day. This experience has instilled in me a deep appreciation for the precious moments in life, especially the miracle of newborn babies. Capturing their innocence and the immense love that surrounds them brings me immense joy.

I'm so fortunate to have found a career path that allows me to combine my love for people and photography. Connecting with clients, getting to know their stories, and witnessing the wonder of parenthood firsthand is a true privilege. Many of my clients become dear friends, and for that, I am incredibly grateful.

Let me help you capture the magic of your newborn journey and create beautiful keepsakes you'll cherish forever.

The Client Experience

Joanna's commitment to client experience extends to every detail of the session. She provides a wide selection of props, backdrops, outfits, and layers, ensuring that there's something to suit every style and preference. This eliminates the need for parents to bring their own items, reducing stress and simplifying the process.

Beyond the physical environment, Joanna cultivates a sense of ease and reassurance through her interactions with her clients. She is patient, understanding, and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure her clients feel comfortable and supported. Her expertise, coupled with her genuine warmth and empathy, creates a trusting bond that allows parents to fully embrace the experience.


I cannot recommend Joanna enough! We went to her for newborn pictures and had the most amazing experience. She is such a genuinely kind person who I completely trusted with our newborn. She also had our preliminary pictures back to us the same day and we could not be happier. I am so glad we not only had the pleasure of working with her but also just meeting someone who made it such an enjoyable memorable experience!

Joanna has a special gift for working with newborns. She handled our two-week old baby with the utmost care. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture their newborn's first images. We were so pleased with the images and appreciate her expertise and professionalism. We also worked with Joanna for our baby announcements, the quality of which was far superior than any mail-order program. Joanna: Thank You for capturing this very special moment in time for our family. We will treasure the images always.
With appreciation!
