Letters from Clients

 

Dear JoAnn,

 

We’re now 10 days into our new life as parents of our precious Ruby and just when we thought we couldn’t be more in love, we were able to watch a beautiful slideshow that captured the morning that changed our lives forever. Our daughter’s birth was a euphoric event of amazement, wide eyes and smiles and tears of joy. Your stunning photography reflects each emotion and every feeling we experienced and the images you’ve given us will be something we’ll always have to cherish this moment.

 

Your photo talent only parallels the incredible qualities of the human behind the camera. From the instant you entered the birth center for Ruby’s arrival, your positive energy, passion, professionalism and compassion kept us fully content and comfortable with sharing such a private event. It was like having an aunt or sister on hand who happens to be really good with a camera.

 

We thank you for the respect you showed us, our baby and our midwife and doula. We thank you for your tenderness, encouragement and genuine helpfulness after the big moment and throughout the rest of the morning. We thank you for the warm hat you personally made for our newborn child to wear when she finally arrived. We thank you for your commitment to such a meaningful mission: showcasing the talents of midwives and doulas. You will always have our gratitude and love! We cannot wait to see countless other babies born and families made happier than ever through your lens in labors to come.  Love, Monika & Craig

I had birth photography done by JoAnn after having several of my clients rave about her. They were point on! Mainly I wanted my husband to be able to enjoy the moment of our child being born and not be consumed with trying to take pictures. But JoAnn provided so much more! She came to my house while I was in labor and helped massage my back, made suggestions to help relieve the pain, and called the Midwife for me when I was unable to talk through the contractions. She did all this, meanwhile I hardly noticed she was there. It was so comfortable to have her around, and though I felt bad for calling her early in the process - she always had a smile and convinced me she was happy to be there.

I was in such a haze by the end of my labor that I barely remember seeing my daughter for the first time. JoAnn was able to capture the joy on camera of the entire labor and birth - make it look like a wonderful experience instead of remembering the pain. The slideshow brought family and friends (and myself) to tears - it is beautiful to have and I will cherish it forever!

Not to mention she is the baby whisperer and was able to calm our daughter down for adorable newborn photos at 2 weeks old!

Dear Joann,

Words cannot describe how thankful Ed and I are to you for photographing the birth of our daughter Carly. Through your lens you captured and told the beautiful birth story of our baby girl. You manage to photograph every emotion throughout the entire labor and delivery, and we couldn't be more grateful to have such intimate moments documented.  You gave your heart, support, thoughtfullness and kindness above all.

I look forward to sharing the pictures and video with Carly when she is older and can't help but think how cool it will be for her to see the beginning of her life story, her entrance into the world and how she was welcomed into our home and our lives, surrounded by people who love her, and in such a beautiful way, a peaceful way.

It is a day I will always remember and thanks to your talent and love it's a day I can be relive and share with others. We are so grateful you have launched your labor to love project as it is so much more than telling a birth story, it is normalizing the beauty of births, particularly natural births and home births.

You will always hold a special place in our hearts and we can't wait to have you back to photograph the birth of our next child.
 

Love Ed & Emily
Carly's Mom & Dad

Dear JoAnn,

 

I'm not sure how to begin to thank you for not only the amazing photos you took during my labor and birth but also for the amazing support and encouragement you gave me.

Not only did you take such wonderful photos that I will cherish forever but you also acted as a second Doula to me while I was in labor. I know that I wouldn't have had such a great birth day experience without the support you, Sheila, Sarah and my husband has been provided.

You are an amazing person, so great at what you do and your passion truly shows through your work. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for everything! You are a part of the family now and I hope we can get together soon.  Love, Lauren & Garrett

Dear JoAnn,

You're a blessing and a half! The job you did for us is amazing capturing the moments when these babies are born is so beautiful.   You're like a Doula and friend.  Your support meant the world to us. Thank you a million times to infinity for being there with us and giving us support for what ever birth plan we chose to go with. Again, thank you for taking those amazing pictures!  I've posted it and you have everyone in tears- they all think it's beautiful and I let them all know you did an outstanding job.  I'll definitely keep in touch with you xoxo ❤️😘​  -  Love Ana & Joel

My experience with Joann from Labor to Love was nothing short of amazing! Before being chosen to participate in her annual rainbow baby shoot this year, I followed her work and couldn't believe how creative and unique her photography was. I came across her viral rainbow baby shoot from last year and immediately fell in love. It was even more amazing and an honor for me to work with her during this year's rainbow baby shoot. From the first time we made contact, I can tell how much Joann genuinely enjoyed her craft. She was so welcoming, warm, professional and such a sweetheart to all of us girls before, during and after the shoot. I would absolutely recommend Joann as the BEST maternity/baby/family photographer around!

Chanie Kamman

From the moment we walked in, Joanne made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. She is so flexible and has a great "go with the flow" attitude that put both me and my baby at ease. Even with the crawling away, tears, and movement, she managed to get incredible pictures! We drove over 2.5 hours round trip, and I don't regret it

Divi Kamman

I loved that JoAnn is so invested in individualizing each shoot for each child and family. My family got beautiful shots but also had a great time creating them. JoAnn offers everything, from adorable self-made props to a perfect background and a great manner with the little ones. I love that our photos are so unique and am so thankful to JoAnn for going above and beyond for our family!

Angela Stevenson Bovino

When my son was 10 weeks old Joann took his pictures and even took extra time because he was so good and stayed sleeping. Today 9 months later I have a huge canvas photo on my wall. Everyone comments on how beautiful it is. JoAnn does amazing work, when meeting her and during photo shoot you will see one amazing Beautiful lady take pride and love in what she does and loves to do!! She is very gentle and loving! I highly recommend her and her business to other individuals looking for a photographer for now and the future.

Joann has a huge heart, an awesome sense of humor, and some INSANE talent! I was lucky enough to be chosen for the 2017 Rainbow baby shoot and I feel so blessed to have been able to spend an evening getting glammed up and meeting some amazing women who are also welcoming their rainbows.  Her studio is fantastic, she made me feel right at home with her laughter, and even better, her encouraging words made me feel BEAUTIFUL. <3.  She is truly a special human being and second to none photographer.

Christina Zajac

JoAnn is absolutely amazing at what she does and makes you feel completely comfortable during the entire shoot. She did both my maternity and newborn photos and I couldn’t have asked for anything better! Thank you, JoAnn, for helping us capture these special moments!

Leslie Nicole

JoAnn was incredible start to finish! She kept in touch with me prior to my babies arrival and scheduled our newborn session once she was born. We received a link to our gallery rather quickly as well.

Joann spent several hours with us to be sure she got plenty of photos. Her vision is really beautiful and she had the most precious hand made props! Not only were we thrilled with all the photos - we were also really pleased to meet such a kind gentle person! Thanks Joann for capturing Jojos first days of life and for handling our sweet girl with love and kindness.

Natasha Levine-Broderick

JoAnn,  This thank you is a bit late but much needed! Mike and I can't describe how wonderful you captured my pregnancy, the birth and our sweet baby Jack after he was born. We are so incredibly thankful we made the decision to have you at the birth. Not only are you a photographer, but you were also a huge shoulder to lean on during the birth. You were right there cheering me on, running around getting whatever I needed and you were an extra shoulder to lean on. Thank you for being so positive and comforting to me. The video and the photos of the birth are incredible. We're so thankful that we choose to have you as we will cherish the memories you gave us forever. The emotion and moments you captured are a blessing. Thank you thank you ❤️
Love, Natasha, Mike and Baby Jack

Monica Bellavia Ferraro

JoAnn is amazing and I am so happy we found her. We got the belly, birth, and baby package and it was a great decision. JoAnn made us feel very comfortable and at ease during our belly session and got really great shots. During our birth she was the best we could have asked for. She has found a great balance between being both comforting and unobtrusive. I will treasure the birth slideshow and pictures forever. It was so wonderful to receive the slideshow and pictures after the birth to reflect, absorb, process, and have some closure on my labor and delivery experience. And our newborn session pictures are so precious!!! JoAnn is so talented, meticulous, and patient as well as warm and caring, and we consider her our friend. We will definitely be calling JoAnn for any more babies that come into our lives.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Leslie Marie

There aren't words to describe the kindness, compassion and nurturing environment we experienced as a family during our newborn shoot. She captured the essence of our new family of 5 and our little blessing. I highly recommend using Joann as your photographer and I know we will be using her in the future!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Katrina Mill

We booked JoAnn for our newborn photos and she was amazing! Not only do you get wonderful photos that you will treasure of your little one forever, but you will be able to hand off your baby to her and relax with a cup of coffee and just watch her do her magic. The day we had our daughters pictures taken she was six days old and I had been struggling with breastfeeding and her latch. JoAnn had such a comfortable studio that I was able to take my time to feed her and not feel rushed or inconvenient. She works around you and your baby. She loves what she does and you can really tell. She is worth the money and I would hire her again when we have another little one.

Michelle LaComb

Every photographer has their niche and Joann's is with babies. Whether she's capturing mom & baby meeting for the first time or documenting baby's milestones, the results are phenomenal! When you meet Joann you instantly feel a connection, to many she has become like family, there to celebrate every moment of your baby's childhood. She also has an amazing way with babies; she can be calm and soothing, silly and giggly, and always let's baby run the show. She has been my daughter's photographer since she was a few days old and given us so many cherished photos of our little girl during her first year! I HIGHLY recommend Joann if you're looking for quality service and photos.

Crystal Rose Anderson

We met with Joann shortly before our home birth. She made it feel like we've known each other for years, not hours. She is a very up-beat, energetic, friendly person. At our home birth she was amazing, so helpful, unimposing, and able to capture the tender and exciting moments without us even noticing. She kept our family informed along the way as well. Our newborn photos were amazing too, hard to choose just a few to put up in our home. Truly a baby whisper, and so patient with the many "hiccups" of babies and first time parents! We will continue to utilize her services for our special photos for years to come.

Since the first part of the review, we've continued our relative 2 with JoAnn. She's done all our holiday photos, our daughters 1st and 2nd Birthday photos, pregnancy announcement, maternity, 2nd birth, and newborn photos. JoAnn is so professional, personable, hard working. She is awesome with kids and babies. We will continue have her capture our family memories for years to come.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Instead of reviewing JoAnn as a photographer, everyone can clearly see her work is fantastic from her photos!! I'm going to instead gush over the fact that she isn't just a photographer. You meet her and she's instantly your friend! She went above and beyond for us at my home birth. She captured the essence of my family beautifully but she also stayed with me all night and into the wee hours of morning when I had a bit of an unexpected journey; not as a photographer, but as a true friend there to help out in anyway she could. I don't know what we would have done without her! She's amazing and I am so grateful she was apart of my birth team.  Love Eden, Chris and the Gang.

Vlora Lynn

JoAnn was absolutely amazing! You can just see from all her pictures that she does an excellent job, but she goes beyond that. From the moment we entered the studio it was a great experience. She held my princess, offered drinks, spoke with us like a friend, was very patient especially with my teething hungry munchkin. The ambience of studio was very pleasant and relaxing. I honestly couldn't have had any one better to take pictures. Thank you for your amazing work and personality JoAnn. You are the true MVP

Deb Daylida-Kolesar

I’ve had the utmost pleasure of knowing JoAnn when our paths crossed in the equine world...My son was 6 yrs old at the time and she took some amazing photos of him with his horse. Here we are 11 yrs later and I am so glad I called upon her to take his senior pictures!
She’s an amazing photographer who really captures the essence of who you are. She took the time to ensure perfection. Our photo shoot included a horse and a baseball! The pics are amazing! I love them all!!! Thank you JoAnn!!

Kathy Cruz

I had my maternity photo shoot with JoAnn this past month, and I have nothing but great things to say. JoAnn made my family and I feel comfortable from the first step we took into her studio to the last. She knew exactly what she was doing behind the camera. Each and every photo she took came out flawless. We couldn't be any happier with the outcome of them all. We now have beautiful breath taking photos we will forever cherish. We look forward to our newborn photo shoot coming up with her as well as future shoots. I HIGHLY recommend JoAnn to all my friends and family as well as new to-be-mothers!!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Joann is simply amazing! She is not only a very talented photographer but she is a genuine and caring person. I have used her for maternity, birth, newborn, family sessions and I plan to continue using her because I trust her to capture my most cherished moments! I rave about her to anyone who will listen! Next month I’m preparing for the birth of my second child and it’s such a relief knowing she’ll be there to not only capture my birth story but support me and encourage me every step of the way! I couldn’t imagine not having her there! If I could give her 10 stars I would! - Love, Barbara & Miguel

Nicole DeFelippi

JoAnn is a miracle worker with my 9 day old son and his newborn photo shoot! He had plans of his own and she worked so well with what his idea of a photo shoot was and we still ended up with (from what I've seen so far) the most amazing shots! She is unbelievably talented and now part of my family.

Stephanie MacDonald

I happened to find JoAnn through a wonderful twist of fate through my sister in law...and I am so grateful I did! JoAnn did a newborn session for our daughter in May and we are over the moon with the results. I was nervous going into the session knowing that my baby is fussy more often than not, but JoAnn is a baby whisperer! She was patient and kind and worked around our baby's time. I never felt rushed and JoAnn was so accommodating. We were comfortable with her immediately. She has such a wonderful talent and a creative eye, which combined produced some of the most adorable and heart melting images of our newborn baby girl. We will have these beautiful reminders of this time in our lives for years to come, and not to wish time away, but we can't wait for future sessions as our daughter gets older! I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you, JoAnn, for such a wonderful experience.

Lauren DiScala Healy

I cannot say enough wonderful things about JoAnn. From our first phone conversation I knew that she was the perfect person to capture my birth. I immediately felt at ease with her. When she arrived at our home the morning of my c section I was very anxious about surgery and having her around was actually very calming. The images she captured are absolutely amazing and I will treasure them forever. We've shared the video slideshow with family and friends and everyone couldn't believe how beautiful it was. We have watched it over and over again. I would recommend JoAnn to anyone considering birth photography!!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Jennifer Gil Photopoulos

JoAnn is amazing! I saw her amazingly creative rainbow picture and wanted to do something similar for myself but unfortunately I'm on the West Coast so I couldn't use JoAnn as my photographer. I reached out to JoAnn hoping she could recommend someone on the West Coast and while she did not know of anyone she very graciously offered to work with my photographer to recreate the picture. So that is exactly what I did, she walked my photographer through the steps and we were able to achieve some really cool pictures. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to JoAnn for taking the time to help me out without even knowing me!! She is obviously passionate about photography and is willing to go above and beyond!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Lauren Loomer Ferris

Where do I even start.... JoAnn is such an amazing and talented person and photographer. I met her on the day of my son's birth and I immediately felt like she was an old, close friend! I never noticed her taking photos while I was in labor/giving birth, what I did notice is how she comforted me, went and got my husband coffee, fed me water, and helped me through my labor. However, she was taking photos, amazing photos the whole time, that I will have an cherish forever! She also took photos of my son at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and just did his 1 year cake smash! She is so patient and is always accommodating to my sons schedule! The pictures are just amazing and its always so fun to see her at her studio! I HIGHLY recommend JoAnn for all photography needs!!!

Chloe Quinn

THE most genuinely sweet, encouraging and brilliant photographers in CT. JoAnn is 100% dedicated to her craft and not only hand-designs sets, but is also the one photographer you want by your side during labor. Thankful to know her and appreciate all that she does for pregnant families in CT! JoAnn is the only photographer I recommend to my friends, family and patients!

Emily Hays

Joann did such and amazing job with our pictures, I love each and everyone of them!! She was so patient with my not always cooperative boys and due to her professionalism and patience we got beautiful pictures as a result.

Samantha McFarland

I went to Joanne for my maternity pictures in March of 2017, and she was awesome! We went down to the water and got some beautiful wooded shots by myself and with my boyfriend! She went above and beyond with her turnaround speed as well

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Nicole Knibbe Chinigo

Wonderful experience. JoAnn not only has a gift with her eye for capturing beautiful photos, but she is also amazing with molding newborns into all those poses and getting toddlers to cooperate for the shots you want. Wonderful experience, would use her again in a heartbeat!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

JoJo Kean

JoAnn preserved memories of my pregnancy with a maternity shoot and created a touching slideshow from the delivery. The baby is only 6 months old and I already find myself looking at the photos and the video frequently. I can't wait to share these photos with the kids once they are older. I want to have another baby just to have these experience with JoAnn one more time!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Erin Pratt Davis

I don't even know where to begin! JoAnn was so amazing from the beginning. My husband and I first met JoAnn at our maternity session and instantly felt connected to her. She became our friend. The next time we saw her was at my sons birth. She was so comforting and really helped me through my labor. As a first time mom I was super nervous and she made me feel so calm and relaxed. She was extremely helpful to my husband too who was just as nervous as I was! Once my son was born she captured his first moments of life with the most amazing photos that I will forever cherish!! We then took him for a newborn session and she was so patient and gentle with him. She has such a passion for what she does and it really shows in her work. I can't wait to show my son his first moments when he's older. She truly gave us a gift we'll never forget!

Madison Hammond

I did a breastfeeding mini session this past weekend and JoAnn and her family were amazing to work with! I've seen a sneak peek so far and can't wait to see the others! Breastfeeding has been the absolute hardest challenge I've had to face in life. Labor and delivery was beautiful, natural and painless, but bf has been a struggle for sure. It's been worth every tear and ounce of love I can offer my daughter though, and it's moments captured like these that encourage me to continue this journey for her and this bond between us. I'm really so grateful to have this opportunity with JoAnn and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Brittany Stalsburg

I did my maternity photos with JoAnn and had an AMAZING experience! She was so lovely to work with and I could tell she knew exactly what she was doing- very professional. The photos were so beautiful, and she was really able to capture my "vision" and what I was looking for. I would 100% recommend JoAnn to anyone and would work with her again!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Emily Rimmer

I've found pregnancy to be really challenging and JoAnn made me feel good about myself and supported. Spending time with her was like being with an old friend and the photos she took of me reminded me that my body is doing something amazing.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Crystal Gallo

JoAnn is AMAZING! I will forever treasure the photos she took of my son for his newborn shoot. She took the most amazing picture of my son & daughter that takes my breath away every time I look at it. She took the time to make sure we were comfortable while she worked and took her time with the kids as well. I highly recommend JoAnn, she's awesome!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Alicia Wilde-Belinsky

Our birth story was a crazy one! At 45 we found out I was expecting, 24 yrs earlier with my daughter, there was so much focus on getting a good pic, i felt like my birth coaches lost out on enjoying the moment. I found Joanne, after a long and thoughtful search on the perfect person to share this long awaited miracle. Birth plans don't always go as expected, and mine went five weeks early with an emergency C-section( the day of my maternity photo shoot). Joanne was there for every moment! Captured the things I missed & the moments that my daughter & husband shared with our Peter. I Lost something that day in those moments of being rushed into a C-section, in those first moments after birth with my child, I got them back when I saw the pictures of the moments that JoAnn had captured. She is forever a part of our family!

Paul Falzone Jr.

Joann was amazing to have with us. She has a lot of experience in this so with her help it made everything go very smoothly, she knew exactly what to do to make sure my wife was not in any pain. She was a huge help and I would recommend her to anyone!! And those pictures she took came out fantastic!! Thank you Joann for everything you do and anyone considering using her do it, it will be an experience you'll never forget.

Crystal Brookes Smethurst

No doubt about it - Joanne produces beautiful pictures. She makes you and your baby feel so incredibly at home - every experience with her is so nurturing and yet so much fun. I promise you'll meet her and before you know it, you'll be friends for life. She's creative, thoughtful and always puts the extra effort in to make sure you absolutely adore your photos. Also - she gets your pictures to you ridiculously quickly. Not sure how she does it all but I'm so grateful she does!

Katy Leoni

From the moment some women get pregnant we get so excited that we immediately go on Pinterest, make our secret board and start looking up ideas to announce our pregnancy to friends and family, then we look up ways to announce the gender, and finally we see tons of ideas for maternity photos. Well for me I was so excited about our pregnancy announcement, even more excited about the gender reveal, but when it came to maternity photos I just thought they weren't for me. Maternity photos were for other women who just looked so beautiful being pregnant. I never really felt like one of those beautiful pregnant women until today. JoAnne made me feel like the most beautiful person in the world today which isn't the easiest feelings for someone who is 39 weeks to feel. Thank you so much for taking these photos for me. I know we will cherish them forever.

Cat Cirillo

After 8 years, I finally had family pictures taken with my twins. They came out absolutely amazing and JoAnn was so easy to work with. I can't wait to hang all the beautiful pictures she captured of my children.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Caitlin Oswald

Absolutely beautiful photos! I brought my newborn to her studio at about 10 days old, and JoAnn perfectly captured him and our family. Very professional, an amazing amount of caring and patience with our baby, quick turnaround, and a good price. I recommend her to anyone considering the investment!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Mike Toomey

I truly believe we have the best photographer in the world. She somehow manages to capture these magical moments in our lives that words could never express. I recommend JoAnn to anyone who wants to immortalize the overwhelming bond between a parent and their child!

Lynna Gochee

JoAnn is amazing!! I just delivered our first girl after 4 boys and she did our newborn shoot with all of the children.. I couldn't believe how comfortable all the kids were and how much fun we all had during the shoot. We will definitely be going back !

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Kristal Marie

JoAnn was awesome with my little guy. We chatted through the session like old friends, and she got great shots of him sleeping and awake. She worked with his preferences, not trying to keep him in positions he didn't like or pushing us to try things that might upset him. She has so many neat props.. I wish we'd had all night! I would gladly recommend her, and thoroughly enjoyed my son's newborn session with her!

Joann is very personable and made me feel very comfortable! She does awesome work and loved the photos that came out

Rose Marie

It takes a special talent to capture a photo that will leave an imprint in your heart & mind for all time...JoAnn has that gift, I'm not quite sure how she does it, but she never fails to amaze me with her talent. She has captured photo's that are very near & dear to me from my four-legged friends (horses) to my children & most recently my grandbabies! It consumes so much of her time, but I know that she enjoys every minute of it! She most times is just as excited to see her end result as I am! I love her enthusiasm while photographing, especially with the babies!!!

Arielle Daguet

What a wonderful experience ! Can not say enough about JoAnn's talent and amazing abilities. JoAnn has an eye for beautiful poses and tons of patiences and love for babies . Her space is so warm and welcoming as well .We are so happy with our pictures & can not wait to print them and have them forever to share with our kids as they grow . Just an absolutely great experience!

Dawn Molisky

Where to start!?! JoAnn gave us the greatest treasure trove of memories in a breastfeeding photo session. Let me just say she is nothing short of amazing! Her talent and artistic eye speak for itself in her photos. But let me tell you what you can't see ... her personality and ability to take a potentially awkward situation for some and turn it into a laid back, fun and beautiful experience!! I was nervous and self-conscious but that quickly disappeared the minute we started talking. If you are thinking about having her capture your memories ... take it from me ... do it!! You won't regret it!!

Meg Heath

JoAnn is fabulous to work with. Her talented eye and fun personality make the process simple. Every picture is wonderful. She really goes above and beyond!

This woman is a baby godsend and the baby whisper. She is amazing at what she does! And her talent is beyond words! I am very grateful to be able to capture all of my baby's milestones so beautifully! I would highly recommend her!!!!

Heather Adkins

I had the pleasure of having my daughter's picture taken today and I enjoyed every minute of it! JoAnn is great and knows what she is doing! My daughter didn't want to go to sleep right away but JoAnn was patient. The pictures came out great! I would recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you JoAnn!

Lyndsi Green-Toomey

Not only does Joann take exceptional photos, but she is creative at capturing moments and memories that you can keep forever! I am forever grateful and thankful to have Joann in my family's life. My baby (almost 1) has beautiful pictures of her greatest milestones met, thus far. ☺️ thank you, Joann!

Joann was wonderful. Having never met her and going to a photo shoot she made me feel very comfortable. She isn't afraid to do whatever it takes to get the perfect photo!!! I am so grateful Joann was able to capture not only me but my family as well and even get my little girl to Crack a smile :) we had a wonderful time and would definitely highly recommend Joann!!! Thanks again Joann!!!

Just got done doing a breastfeeding mini session and it was amazing! I was super nervous but JoAnn makes you feel so comfortable and great about yourself! She seriously is amazing! I can't wait to use her again in the future!

I can not say enough about Joann! She is amazing. In maternity shoots she made me feel so comfortable, during labor she helped so much I didn't remember her taking any pictures, yet I have so many plus the most heartwarming video ever and for newborn shoots she was the baby whisperer. I am so grateful for all the amazing photographs we have and plan to use From Labor to Love for many many years to come. Thank you Joann!

I'm forever grateful for Joann! I wish I would of found her to do my oldest pictures but I'm glad I have her now! She has helped me capture memories that will be cherished for years! She is very passionate and loves her work. Her sister,assistant along with her would do everything to capture the perfect picture! I can't thank them enough for the precious memories I will treasure forever! Thank you for your time & all that you do such an amazing woman!

What can I say?  She's the best, she took adorable pics of my baby, she made such a beautiful vid of my birth, she later spent a few hours after I gave birth to take a family pic even after being with us 24 hours. Truly amazing
