MY NAME IS JOY.
i am a child of God, a mother to four, a wife, a dreamer and an artist. we have a little farm up here in northern washington where we spend our days trying to make each day more quality than the last.
i like to think of myself as a wildflower. i crave the warmth of the sun against my face. i bloom when i stop trying to force my own roots down and instead allow the wind to carry me where i was always intended to grow. i am drawn to those who see beauty in unexpected places. and i am always looking to scatter seeds of hope along my journey.
i like to keep things simple. my favorite thing is an honest conversation, the kind that will make you laugh and cry all at once. and i love to dance to a great song in the middle of my kitchen in footie jammies with my wild babies at the end of the day.
as your photographer, i want to show you your family through my eyes. you may feel broken and that this chapter of your story is not one worth remembering. but i want to sit beside you and document the brilliant hope shining through each crack.
