Hi, I’m Joy. I’m a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Wollongong and service the Sydney, Southern Highlands, Illawarra and South Coast areas. I’m an artist, photographer, mother of two gorgeous little kiddos and a wife to an amazing man. Life can be pretty crazy when raising a young family and running a business but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am so grateful that I get to have a family and also have my dream job, its having your cake and eating it too!!
I have lived in Wollongong for most of my life, but I have also been fortunate enough to live in & frequently visit Papua New Guinea as a child. It was quite the experience and I have so many beautiful memories from that time, the place, the people and fond memories of precious time spent with my family growing up. I also have many fond memories of spending many a summer camping on the NSW South Coast, running wild, getting dirty feet and sandy hair. I can’t wait to be able to create some new memories like this with my own kids.
I have an Advanced Diploma in Fine Art and I still love to draw a little when I have some down time. I also love to crochet (yes like a little old grannie lol), I often feel like if I’m not creating something or being creative on a regular basis I’m not really living wholeheartedly. It’s important to me. It’s up there with breathing and eating. If I can’t somehow be creative my world falls apart.
And like a lot of busy mums out there I really like a great cup of coffee!! So now you’ve gotten to know a bit about me I’d love to get to know a bit about you. I’d love to meet with you for a good coffee or tea (tea is also up there on the list of things I can’t live without) and hear about you, your family, your wedding plans and your loves.
