“TO ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ART OF OBSERVATION. IT’S ABOUT FINDING SOMETHING INTERESTING in AN ORDINARY PLACE… I’VE FOUND IT HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH THE THINGS YOU SEE AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE WAY YOU SEE THEM.”
— ELLIOTT ERWITT

The sweet in between moments when  you  think no one is watching ... those are  my favorite. The sweet giggles of a little one, the way your partner looks at you, the wind blowing   in  a bride's   hair   or   the  way  your children run in the sweet golden light  under the  moss covered trees. 

These are the moments I strive to capture,  the  authentic connections. between  loved  ones and every sweet little detail. 

ABOUT

I  am  married  to  a  sweet  fella  and we have seven amazing children together; who  keep my heart so full.  We  spend our   days  listening   to   the   sounds   of    our  children's  laughter,   baking   cookies,  playing   with  our   pup   and reading stories in the moon light.

I first started photography when I lost my little sister to a tragic accident. It was  photographing her  memorial that helped heal my  heart   and  preserve  the last memories  I will ever have of her.  From that  moment  on I made sure to   capture  every  little   detail   I  could   of   my   growing family. 

I grew  up in the  North and  we are  currently calling the moss   covered   South  our home.   In  the   future  we  are hoping to plant our roots in the  midwest and make it our forever home.

storytelling & making genuine connections  is my love language.

Welcoming  a  new  baby  into the world, beginning your love story, or just  wanting to preserve  memories of  you  and   your  family. 
My passion is telling stories through my images. 
I capture each  moment naturally with very minimal posing, which typically leads to extra smiles and the sweetest little giggles. 

My imagery is  light  and  filmy  and  I  currently capture    each     moment    digitally.    I   want   to preserve your  memories  and  capture each little detail, from a sweet kiss on the nose, to the gentle touch of a newborn.  My hope is to tell your story and give you images to cherish on for   a  lifetime.

My style is organic and minimal. I am inspired by golden light, soft pastel colors & emotion. I like to give simple directions without too much posing, this in return creates the sweet natural moments of love and connection. 

I strive to capture the beauty and connection of your family as they are and would love to tell your story.

Absolutely amazing experience! She was very laid back, and absolutely talented being able to shoot and hold my one year old son so my husband and I could have some photos together.

Not only did she take amazing photos of our birthing experience and beautiful daughter, but she helped support my husband and I through the delivery. She was very positive, helpful, and encouraging to both me and my husband. We had just met her, but she made us feel comfortable and safe the moment she walked into our hospital room. She is so sweet and kind and you can tell she really cares about her clients.

We would highly recommend using Joleen Marie for your photography needs. She was professional, personable, aware of our expectations, and realistic. She made herself available to communicate and she didn't mind reminding us of our previously made requests. She was on track with time limitations and importance of various shots.  She is a photographer who is truly worth it.

SO MUCH MORE THAN A PHOTOGRAPHER!My husband and I had been talking about an elopement for a while. When we finally pulled the trigger, we were very fortunate to have found Joleen. She helped with so many details on our wedding day. She helped us spark ideas to make our day extra special.  She’s truly so much more than a photographer— she’s become a dear friend.

Joleen braved the rain and did a photo shoot of my son and daughter-in-law just before he deployed. Joleen made it fun, the photos were fantastic, and now we will have these awesome photos to keep the sad away until he returns. Thank you Joleen!
