Welcome TO THE

Its been a good minute since I last wrote about my thoughts.  As we are approaching the end of the year, I thought this would be a perfect time to share some. I came across in my memories on Facebook a question I asked all my friends a year ago today, “What’s your word for […]

I had a photo session a few months ago that had me thinking of why I do, what I do and the passion of the purpose. I am not (right now anyways), a photographer who airbrushes, changes up alot of the colors, adds in affects and makes the photos look flawless. I do think those […]

 Why is photography so important to me?  As I sit here and try to remember how far back I loved pictures, it was a slow rewind of my life.  It was before cell phone cameras were in our pockets, so I believe it was after my mom died when I was 16.  My mom didn’t […]

What does Success mean to you?  Sit back and really think about that.  Is it being rich?  Is it being the best parent possible?  Is it making your dream come true?  Every single person looks at success differently and I think they should.  If someone that you know looks or seems successful, then don’t be […]

You may or may not have caught on in previous posts and on Joyful Memories Photography website when speaking I have said, “we” and then have changed it to “I”.  Joyful Memories Photography is a team of my husband and I.  Even though you may see my face more and I’m the founder behind the […]

Welcome to my blog!! Its been a long time coming!  First off let me introduce myself…my name is Rachel and I am the founder/owner of Joyful Memories Photography.  In 2008, I started to catch myself staring at professional pictures and so curious of how they artistically captured their pictures.  I had me a cheap small […]
